Makeup lessons whilst going through treatment

26957E27-8E02-406C-8772-08211F6A3F7ELast week I had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful lady who had booked a makeup lesson with me. She booked the lesson to update her makeup, adapting it to changes currently happening in her life. P is currently undergoing chemotherapy and has found the affects of treatment made her want to learn how to define her face now that she has started to lose her hair. In her email she wasn’t sure whether this was something I could help with but I quickly responded to say ‘yes of course I can!’

It occurred to me that I don’t make it known this is something I can help with.

There are charities ‘Look good feel better’ that operate within hospitals and offer makeup guidance. Unfortunately the two hospitals local to me do not offer this. P Bee wanted more of a one to one lesson.  Please read her kind words as she shares her makeup lesson experience.

FAQ With me


What is your most memorable wedding?

I was flown over to beautiful Malta to apply a brides Wedding Make-up. Initially the bride had a make-up lesson with the intension of applying her own make-up on her big day. After the lesson and speaking to her Fiancé, she made the decision that having her make-up professionally applied was as important as her dress, therefore flew me out and she looked fabulous!!

Typically our first meeting would be at the trial, this is when we can discuss all requirements.A make-up trial will develop a look that fits perfectly with your dress, hair and colour scheme, so that on the big day you can be confident of beautiful results and just enjoy the experience of being pampered. It’s your day – treasure the memories and those precious photos capturing you at your loveliest.


What do you love most about your job?

When my job is done and the bride goes off to marry the love of her life, this is when I feel most proud. That feeling of satisfaction knowing that the bride looks amazing.

What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?

Look after your skin: drink lots of water and moisturise. Having a good canvas to work from will give a much better end-result. Dehydrated skin can be hard to work with and can make a foundation base look much heavier than it is. Make-up ends up sitting on the skin, rather than blending with it and prevents your natural beauty from shining through.

How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?

Allowing plenty of time on the day and not feeling rushed is the key to creating a relaxed calm environment. Just sit back and enjoy the experience of being pampered.

What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?

By having make-up professionally applied you will be flawless all day long. Ask a bridesmaid to carry a press powder compact and lipstick for you, this way you will always be camera ready.
