Regular Tuesday morning. It's raining outside,what's new, hey?! I open the fridge to put some milk in my "pick me up coffee" and I can not BELIEVE! it, we are out of it! So here I am in my local SPAR. No make up. In my sweatpants and hoodie over my head. Do not want to be seen,EVER! And as I am carrying my pint of Skimmed ( nothing less than that) milk I brush through the magazine section, that happens to be beside the till, conveniently. The big smile, the white teeth, flawless skin. [for my skincare tips click here]. I am chased by covers of the Picture Perfect . Nothing better then scroll through couple of the glossies over my cuppa and GET INSPIRED... Here are the 5 Most requested Makeup Looks 1."The Kim Kardashian Makeup look" Not for shrinking violets with makeup. This look involves a lot of contouring, HD Brows, various colours and a lot of lashes. 2. Bronze Goddess Makeup look I hear this a lot. Especially in Ireland. Nothing wrong with little bit of colour. Coppers, bronzes, golds, chocolate tones. Pick an accent and remember that subtle is the key here. 3.Smokey Eye Makeup look There are hundreds of variations . Pair it with flawless skin and nude lips.   4.Hollywood Glamour Makeup Look High maintenance look. Will definitely make you stand out from the crowd. Red lipstick doesn't wear you, you wear it. Chin up and face the world! Pair it with no fake tan, nice flicked eyeliner and fake lashes to make the impact. Russian red, Heroine deep or Wine tone,they are all in! 5."No Makeup" Makeup look One of the hardest looks to

Bobbi Brown Makeup Artist – Kathryn and Patrick Wedding – Malahide

By |February 11th, 2014|Categories: Wedding Makeup|Tags: , |1 Comment

When Kathryn contacted me for a bridal trial last year, she was looking for a Bobbi Brown Makeup artist. Bobbi Brown Makeup Artist As soon as Kathryn walked in and we had a friendly chat over cup of tea I knew why. Kathryn is just one of those free spirit, smart and pretty, next door girls who normally doesn't wear much makeup. She was was looking for Bobbi Brown Makeup Artist because the products are renowned for natural, flawless look and philosophy that just enhances your best features. Fast forward to the 13th September 2013, Kathryn was set to marry her sweetheart Patrick in Barberstown Castle As soon as I arrived to her family home in Malahide I knew it was going to be a pleasure to be apart of this bridal party preparation. Proud dad greeted me with a mug of hot coffee (can not function without it) and two adorable grandkids,who were over from Norway. You could tell right way by their amazingly snow white hair and beautifully sallow skin. Tight Schedule The girls followed shortly from the hairdressers down the road, as we were on quite tight schedule. Everybody was so relaxed so much so when Phographer David McClelland started to take photos, it took me awhile to even notice ( and that's a compliment!) . I couldn't believe how relaxed Kathryn was. Totally chilled out in her fifties style dress, looking incredible joking that she has her Converse trainers for later, which apparently she did wear. I love that look, but only cool can pull it off.

Makeup Artist – What do I really do – Lida Hertel

By |January 3rd, 2014|Categories: Wedding Makeup|Tags: |4 Comments

Makeup Artist - how glamorous does that sound? To most girls it probably sounds very glamorous. I remember from working as a Bobbi Brown makeup artist in Brown Thomas that people thought that our main job is just to stand behind the counter all day looking gorgeous. Well, the truth is I love make up. I love meeting new people. Do I get star struck? No. We are all human with our little insecurities; otherwise you wouldn’t ask me for help, would you. I remember when Rihanna was choosing a lipstick and I told her that it wouldn’t be my choice. An hour later after nice chat, autograph in my pocket and her saying:” I’ll come back to you next time I am in Dublin, cos you showed me all the cool stuff’’ proved my point. When I have a face in front of me, I forget who it is. I see blank canvas and the different persona I can create. All that bragging aside, one of my favourite parts of my job is to do wedding makeup. Why? Wedding guests and the bride are always in a great spirit. Who wouldn’t be on one of the most special days of their life? The hair, the dress, the shoes-oh yeah, don’t we love shoes and the make-up, it all falls into place. Although I have the advantage of having lots of makeup and also the know- how to glam myself, we are all human and on many working at home days like right now this is the reality... Makeup Artist Well as you can see this is my reality at home and when you see that cute face beside me how could anyone want to
