Get the Look | Make-Up by Mario

I get to work with some of the most awesome makeup artists for work and events, and I’m always so interested in the products they use on my face. I therefore decided to do some ‘Get the Look’ posts and share some of my favourite looks with you and let you which products have been used on me.

This look was created by London based makeup artist Mario Brooksbank, he’s done my makeup for lots of different events and always gives me the most flawless skin.

If you want Mario to do your makeup, I booked him through the Priv app. If you aren’t familiar with Priv, it’s an app that allows you to book freelance hair, makeup, and nail artists, as well as massage, personal training and more.

Let me know if you found this Get the Look post interesting? If you find them useful then I’ll try to do them each time I get my makeup done professionally.

Speak to you soon,

Blonder, brighter, better hair

I don’t know if this is just me, but it’s only when I go to the hairdressers to get my hair coloured do I appreciate how much my hair can make a difference to my self-esteem! I was recently invited to the Wella World Studio to get my hair dyed by one of their colour experts, which was very exciting, because I went in feeling like a goblin and left feeling like a Goddess!
