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!

Visiting Santa at Trevena Cross Nurseries

Today we took Eloise to visit Santa at Trevena Cross Nurseries in Breage, Cornwall. We took her last year when she was a lot

younger and it was great, but it was even better this year!

They had a little market on selling stuff from local businesses, like jewelry, bread, cheese, photos, crafts etc.

Then they had the santas grotto which is amazing, as your in the que they brought round chocolates, then there was a snow globe which you could stand behind and have a photo which looked amazing! There was also a enormous polar bear and fake snow and a talking owl and post box which is amazing for the kids.

Going there was free, and it only cost £5 to go and visit santa but the money goes to there chosen charities. When you go into the actual grotto there is a fantastic display of lights and status of animals, before you see father christmas so its a lovely experience. Then at the end you get to choose your own present from santa so theres stuff to suit all ages. This year Eloise chose a toy…
