A sweet makeup experiment...

As most of you are aware, as well as being a beauty and fashion addict, I'm also a freelance makeup artist with some experience in commercial styling as well. Its was about 6 months ago that I decided to put my heart and soul into freelance and try and make it my career. A lot of hard work and effort has gone into building up my portfolio, making contacts and improving my skills. But I feel that in these past months I have personally achieved quite a lot. Whilst it's still an ever growing project to make this into a fulltime career, I am getting the first pieces of my jigsaw in place!

I do quite a lot of shoots but I don't post many of them on here, however today I had a shoot with two local photography students who had found my work on the internet and got in touch. These girls really are fabulous, their skills are beyond the majority of any college students and it turned out to be possibly my favourite shoot of all time.

We did various looks but this is my favourite, and the funnest to do. I'd always wanted to do a kitsch shoot in the style of mac's quite cute/sugar sweet collection promos. Lots of glitter and sprinkles later... these are some of the pictures. Just to note, these are not the finished photo's simply some snaps from the day I thought you might want to have a nose at :)

Hope you like :)
Lots of love,

I love everything about these photos. I'd love to be a make-up artist but I don't think I have the confidence xxx
