Bridal make-up training

Before the natual bridal make up
So the past two days ive been in Falmouth, Cornwall, studying bridal make-up with Sally Orchard (an amazing make-up artist in Cornwall) so i arrived at her studio in Falmouth there were 6 lovely girls doing the course including me. The first day we did a bit of theory in the morning and practiced a more natrual bridal make up look in the afternoon, this was really hard for me as im usually one for putting quite a bit of make-up on so it was quite hard to just do a little bit! It was also very strange to do someone else's make-up as im so used to just doing my own!
First day of training

The second day we did more of a stronger bridal make-up look the model was Silly old see dog (Alison) she creates vintage dresses which are just out of this world and you will see one of her dresses in the picture i took. The more stronger look really suited her! After a bit of theory and watching the demo we worked on each other in the afternoon, i worked on a different girl from yesterday so i could practice working on different people with different eye shapes/face shapes. I found this look was a lot easier but ive got a lot of work to do before im perfect! I struggled the most with the eyeliner as i dont often wear it myself but i think i did a pretty good job. I cant wait to get stuck in and build up a nice make-up kit (a nice excuse to buy more make-up) and start building up a portfolio of different looks!

Baby update - 1 year old

Hi everyone, so i have been wanting to film a baby update for so long, and its so difficult to film a sit down video with Eloise as she just wants to get up and move about so i thought i would do a written version instead!

As you know from the title Eloise is now a 1 year old! Still feels weird to say and type it! So this post is just going to update you on whats shes been up to and what milestones shes been achieving!

Eloise started walking about 11 months old, she took a few steps one week and the next week she was walking from room to room so it happened super super quickly, and now as im writing this shes running around all over the place! We recently brought her first pair of shoes from clarks however one of them has now been lost, we have searched the house so we have come to the conclusion that its ended up in the bin!

We made the transition from baby milk to cows milk about 11 months old. She was already having plenty of cows milk in her cereal so we thought we would change he…

How i celebrated my 21st birthday

So on May 15th 2017 i celebrated my 21st birthday. Well i say the 15th may but i pretty much celebrated all weekend and theres still more to come!

The day before my birthday me and my mum went shopping and brought loads of stuff for our holiday to Cuba. (there is a haul on my channel Lydia Anne on YouTube) it was a really sunny day in Cornwall and it was so nice to spend the time with my mum and Eloise. After shopping i went home to find one of my sisters had decorated my front room with balloons and also put photos on my wall in the shape of a 21. These were photos from when i was born right up until now, i literally am so soppy i cried my eyes out for about 30 mins i couldn't even talk, whilst i was doing that Decarlo couldn't stop laughing at me! When i finally managed to stop crying and actually look at the photos properly Decarlo told me we were going for a meal just me him and Eloise, so i had to go and wash my face and get rid of any make up that was left on my face (wh…
