Best brands

I get a lot of brides when booking asking me which products I use and my answer is ‘different high end and professional makeup artist brands’

I do use a lot of Mac products (the ones I like) but not just those or I wouldn’t be an artist. Part of my job is to research and shop around for the best products.

Professional bridal make up application isn’t about slapping on the latest colour from your favourite brand it’s about long lasting, great coverage and make up that photographs well whether it’s from Mac or another great brand.

I love experimenting with new colours and textures and I’m also a confirmed shopaholic so it’s quite lucky I live on a small island where we are limited to what we have. Although that doesn’t help my bank balance when I leave the island 3/4 times a year as I go crazy!

There it is!! Ibiza summer 2017

As the sun sets on another fantastic season on the White Isle and the island waves good bye to millions of visitors until next year. I’m still busy with the last couple of Ibiza weddings before I can hang up my brushes (until Halloween at least)

I can’t say it’s not been challenging at times. I had my second baby in March and with weddings booked in from May onwards it was never going to be easy but if you love what you do then it helps!! Looking forward to taking it to the next level in 2018 …watch this space!!

My personal highlights are too many to mention but every bride is different and I can truly say I’ve made some new friends this summer too.

I’ve got my second from last wedding tomorrow coincidently with a lovely girl from near my home town and then I’m off to Italy for two days to see family. Just one more wedding when I’m back then busy planning next summer.

Dates are filling up fast for wedding hair and makeup so contact me for early booking discount and any other Ibiza wedding related questions you may have. Until the next time!!

To airbrush or not to airbrush?

Due to the current high temperatures and an increase in party makeup and hair bookings this summer I thought I’d mention quickly about airbrushing as it’s a service I’ve been offering for a few years now.

Foundation is sprayed onto your skin through an airbrush gun giving a fine mist of product which can be applied to suit the coverage you want.

Lots of my brides here ask me for it now, with the high temperatures and the strive for perfection airbrushing has become very popular for Ibiza weddings.

More traditional foundations have also moved on a lot in recent years and can give a great coverage that lasts all day. Of course skin is always primed before and sprayed with fixing spray after so it will stay in place.

Happy days!

May Days

Just a few words before my big birthday tomorrow…Less about that the better!!!….so I worked on my first wedding of the summer last week with the lovely Pascale. Lovely group from Holland.
Looking forward to getting started on my own weddings next week and meeting new people after speaking to some really lovely brides over the winter months.

We’re also excited about starting on the Balearic Babes clients as the summer parties kick off this month!!

I’ll be trying to keep up with posting news here but with a busy summer, a 4 year old and a new baby it might be hard!!

Spring brides Ibiza

So we’ve not been just answering wedding enquiries this month. Finally got to get my brushes out on one of my last jobs before my maternity leave started (finishes in May!) for a gorgeous shoot at one of my team Carmen’s beautiful house here in Ibiza.

With a stunning wedding dress supplied by Zoey Evans and make up by me with hair by Carmen with the fabulous Aida Matei behind the camera we had all the ingredients for a beautiful day. Just add sun and lots of smiles and the results speak for themselves!!

Lots of love from Ibiza!

Ibiza wedding make up 2017

With the New Year comes the summer enquiries. Some brides are super organised and have already booked last year but a lot leave it until now to start thinking about hair and make up options for their Ibiza weddings

From the first contact we make I try to get an idea of what type of bride you are and what would fit you for your wedding day here in Ibiza. Sometimes people have an idea of what they want already which is great or I can advise them on this.

Whether you are having a small intimate beach wedding or a big family affair the most important thing is that you feel beautiful and the best possible you for the day. Balance this against how much make up you are used to wearing and you are halfway there. Then I just add my creative and professional touch to make the make up last all day under this hot Ibiza sun.

We can accommodate even the largest wedding group as I have a very talented team behind me to help your special day run smoothly.

If you are one of those undecided Ibiza brides for 2017 then contact me for your no obligation quote for your hair, make up and beauty treatments in Ibiza.

‘Balearic Babes’ Ibiza make up and hair service

 

Even here in Ibiza winter has finally arrived and island residents are busy planning the next summers jobs. This is my busiest time of year for enquiries with popular wedding dates getting booked up fast

I try to only book one wedding or job a day as to really give them my full attention. This is becoming more difficult with the new service ‘Balearic Babes’ I have set up  to provide hair, make up and beauty services to for Ibiza hen parties and other large groups here in Ibiza. Not a new idea but I wanted to bring more attention to this side of my work.

We will offer a wide range of services at any time of day from a fishtail braid to a smokey eye to a lash lift for your Ibiza party people! Nothing worse than frizzy hair, sweaty make up and chipped nails when you’re trying to feel good. check out our Facebook page for more info and message us here!

Hope to see you all on the beautiful island soon!
