Dry January

Dry January

I love a new make product as much as the next person, if not more, but this January I decided to have a ‘dry’ month where I wouldn’t by any products at all!!!! Not one! Now, to be honest for me that shouldn’t be too difficult as I have a whole professional kit to use, but I tend to have a very different personal kit and this is what I have used all January. I have not dipped into my Pro kit at all. I had been given a couple of new products for Christmas so I did have those to try but all in all I did stick to the ‘use what you have’ mantra. I found it really worth while exercise and its really changed the way I am going to buy products for myself from now on. Now we are in February I am sticking with it and I will only buy a new product when I really ‘need’ to replace something rather than ‘want’ something.

Have you ever tried doing a ‘dry’ month with cosmetics? If so how did it go?

East Lothian Wedding

Like many of the brides who approach me to do their wedding, Eilidh told me that she didn’t really wear makeup on a day to day basis and didn’t really know what she wanted. In these occasions I tell my brides we will keep the makeup very soft and naturally radiant so that they do not feel too different from normal.  My brides should look effortlessly beautiful and the makeup should never shout.

Dalhousie Castle Wedding

There is something about Dalhousie as everytime I am there something happens to me. Janis’s wedding didn’t start too well as I managed to fall down a small flight of stairs banging my head quite hard but after a quick cup of tea all was well! We had a great morning catching up, as 7 years prior to this I had done Janis’s sisters wedding so it was all very relaxed and great fun!
