Temporary Tattoo Camouflage

Tattoo coverage make-up


Hiding a tattoo can be difficult, but our airbrush technique conceals even the darkest ink.
We use a colour correcting camouflage product that creates a waterproof, non-transferable finish and provides coverage that lasts up to 2 days.

Bridal Make-up and Hairstyling – Photo Shoot at Brampton Grange

I had the pleasure of being invited by Brampton Grange, Northamptonshire  to design and create wedding style hair and make-up for a commercial shoot.  I always love working on photo shoots and collaborating in a  creative team.

For the make-up, I pride myself in creating smooth flawless skin and in this case there was no exceptions.  I spend some time colour matching the foundation base to the correct under tone of the models skin.   My natural make-up style tends to be soft, well blended colours. I combined eyeshadow in varying shades of golds and pewter for a smouldering smokey effect, finished with false lashes.

“I was really pleased when I heard Donna would be working with us on the shoot. I’ve always thought that she stands alone in her ability to make a Bride look totally flawless, yet totally natural. Plus she’s fun to be around which is always a bonus!”  Elliot Patching, Photographer

Timeless beauty, perfect for your wedding day

A photo shoot always gives me the opportunity unleash my creativity, no restrictions just pure creativity (within reason for bridal work ). I enjoy hair styling and this shoot was screaming for me to create a more ‘avant-garde’ bridal up do.  Volume always looks good in photos, and my style of flowing feminine styling comes through every strong in this look, a bit like a walnut whip, woosh!!!  The neckline on the models wedding dress suits a up style for sure, and beautifully highlights her décolletage and elegant neck – I always take into consideration the overall look when designing hair. The whole picture has to work.

Jane Austen Bridal Editorial Photo Shoot Image Magazine

Matt Edwards and I joined teams again to produce the images for the latest winter editorial feature for Image magazine Jan 2014 wedding edition.  The 18th century house on the Courteenhall Estate jumped out as being the perfect place to shoot, a stunning Georgian house set nestled in a beautiful Northamptonshire location and rolling parkland.  Johnny and Anna, the owners agreed and so the idea took shape….

My styling inspiration came from the great lady herself, Jane Austen. Her novels written in the 18th century, are somewhat comical story telling,  highlighted the dependance and importance of women finding a suitable husband for financial security and social status through marriage.  Women were expected to behave in a certain way, to retain their untarnished reputation.  (Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Emma)

I feel fortunate and deep gratitude to live as a 21st century women, with freedom to express myself and choice to marry for love, follow my own career.  I’m intrigued in the female characters in Austen’s novels,  the strong sense of feminity in her  female characters.  I’m fascinated in social conditioning and traditions, where it comes from and how this fits into our culture today . When I read Austen’s novels or watch movies inspired by her writings, I can connect with the origins of my own culture, manners and morals.

For this shoot, I’ve embraced Austen’s characters feminine essence to touch my hair and make-up designs, their beauty and elegance. I’ve added twists to challenge conformity ….subtle playfulness….you can be who you want to be on your wedding day, not what others expect.  

The principle house at Courteenhall is GRAND, but I sense a tingly, warm, at home feeling and that is very much to do with Johnny and Anna’s welcoming and personal approach. Their aim is to create a space for a bride and groom to feel at home, as Lord and Lady for the day, without any stuffy formalities.  Get your wellies on girls and boys!!

Courteenhall provided the perfect backdrop and inspiration for creating a modern  age Lady for a day.  Beautifully relaxed and unique….like you x
