Help needed!

I am on the lookout for fun, creative, trendy fashion photographers.

Blogging can be really cool, exciting, engaging and as everything else very time consuming. I would therefore like some help from anyone who has good skills in fashion and beauty photography and would like to join me for one, or more than one time in this exciting journey of mine involving, make up , clothes, fashion and styling!

If you are based in Dublin Ireland and starting up your careers and need some cool photos for your portfolio or even if photography is your passion/hobby I would love to hear from you.

Business make up: “The workshop”

A few days a go I held my first workshop, and I have to say that it was a great pleasure having all these lovely ladies attending!

Although  it was for limited numbers, I had a full house and from the feedback that I was given everybody seemed to enjoy it.

The techniques that were shown can be found on my previous post.

 Let the workshop begin…

Having the right palettes always helps….

Natural make up shouldn’t be hard to do.. in just a few minute I managed to transform 6 beautiful ladies….

Doesn’t she look beautiful, fresh and natural?…

Spending under 10 minutes to do your make up means that you have the right brushes and know how to use them… the ladies that attended the workshop now know how to do that!

Fresh, flawless, and young… these are the results that natural tones give you

Depending on your skin tone you can use pinks, light browns, golden browns, just play with what you have to get the desired result

If you want to apply bronzer use a small brush to have control and always start with less

Fresh, young, and flawless…. natural make up…..

I hope you enjoyed xx

Style Network

Last week I was very happy to attend the Style Network Event which took place at the Barberstown Castle in co Kildare, organised by Jullie Cobbe and Clara Halpin.

When signing up for the event I was not very sure of what to expect and if this networking event would be beneficial for me, Rowena Doyle form Visual Sense insisted that I shouldn’t miss it and so I trusted her. After all she was right!

Doing a bit of research prior to attending I found out that the speakers of the event were stylist Sonya Lennon , fashion designer Heidi Higgins, Aoife Horgan from The PR Boutique and Denise Brady from Teamworx Recruitment agency. Immediately I thought that this was going to be an interesting morning and was very excited to listen to what these ladies had to say.

The talks started with the very passionate and inspiring Sonya Lennon who talked about the Dress for Success project which she is currently running. The project is focusing on helping women to get back to work by taking away the worry of dressing for an interview. Dress for Success is there to support these women by dressing them,  helping them adapt to a business dress style, giving them style tips and lastly and most importantly making them feel more confident.

Having the pleasure to listen to a very true Heidi Higgins , sharing her story on how she started in the fashion industry and naming the challenges faced at the early stages, but also the rewarding and exciting moments when she felt that all her hard work was being acknowledged.

Aoife Horgan from The PR Boutique and Denise Brady from Teamworx Recruitment agency  shared a similar story making everyone in the audience as well as myself feel very positive and even more inspired.

I have to say that all the talks were very inspirational and motivating especially to my ears…      I have been thinking for the past months now to start my own business and especially during these difficult times this could seem as a crazy thing to do. Meeting and networking with everyone at the event, in a way switched me on and made me think that things can be done as long as you really want them to. …

By the end of it I was even more sure that my decision was the right one and I was even more confident that I should pursue my dreams even harder.

It was a pleasure attending the event and I would like to thank Julie and Clara once more for putting it together.

I would like to close this post with something to think about…
