Frances Moore MUA LOVES… Karen Peake SPMU

Last week I decided to finally bite the bullet and have my eyebrows micro-bladed.  There were a few reasons for my decision; after some personal stress I was finding my hair was falling out which also was affecting my brows, they were also not quite symmetrical and I also wanted to save time in the morning not having to pencil them in.  When thinking of who I could trust with my brows I immediately thought of Karen Peake – she is simply the best micro-blade woman in the South of England!  She is super busy as she gets booked up so quickly and for months in advance, so I was very lucky to get a last minute appointment with her.

When I arrived at Karen’s studio, she immediately put me at ease and made me feel like one of her best friends.  I explained how I was feeling about my brows and what I usually do, and what I would like to get out of them.  Karen understood exactly what I was after and expertly colour matched my brows.

After the procedure and through some careful aftercare, I am completely in love with my brows!  And whats more, I have so much extra time in the mornings now not having to fill them in.  Plus I’ve had so many compliments from clients asking where I’ve had them done!

I honestly cannot recommend Karen enough.  If you’re brows are in need of some tlc (even if you don’t have any brows at all due to stress or illness) go to Karen! x

Beach makeup & shoot – something a little different!

Last month photographer Matt Lee, model Sophie Waldron and myself decided to make full use of the wonderful heat wave we were experiencing in the South of England and produce a beach styled shoot… hey, why not?!  Sophie is an avid surfer and swimmer so beach shoots are always her favourites to do, and Matt just loves to travel and explore hidden beaches so this was definitely a shoot were no one needed convincing to spend a day at the beach!

I never thought ‘commercial’ makeup was my thang, but to be honest I rather enjoyed myself on this one!  It was so interesting trying to design something that was a bit beachy, a bit surfy and yet something that was user friendly on the beach and in the intense heat.  I loved it! x
