What a few of my latest brides had to say!

Thank you Yvette and Ameina for everything you did for me and my family on my wedding day at Jaspers. You were calm and caring on the day and made me feel so relaxed. You felt part of the family. I couldn’t have imagined anyone else to have there. Thank you.
Bridget Goldie 

Hi Yvette,

I wanted to say a big thank you to you and Ameina for being a part of my big day!

I’m so grateful for all your advice in the lead up to the wedding and your beautiful work on the day! I felt so confident and happy with my hair and makeup, which set the tone for a truly wonderful event.

I will share some more memories and photos with you after our honeymoon, but I couldn’t resist letting you and Ameina know as soon as possible, how grateful I am!

Thanks again,
Amy

Hi Yvette,
I just wanted to say another big thank you for the beautiful job you did on our hair on Saturday! We were all so happy with how we looked and the hairstyles lasted long into the night!!
Thank you for being such a nice, calm, funny and warm addition to the day! Everything was perfect and we had the best day ever!

Thanks Ashley xx

Hi Yvette,

Thank you and your team for the wonderful job you all did on Saturday for my daughter Holly’s wedding. They all looked so beautiful. I thoroughly enjoyed having my makeup done for the first time. Thank you also for all the lovely things you said about my dress. You boosted my confidence tremendously. Would you please let Ameina know that I was really pleased with my hair as well. It still looked good the next day and everything brushed out so easily, my hair feels soft and natural.

Regards Denise Johnson

Yvette was wonderful to have on the morning of the wedding – she was on schedule the whole morning and never ran out of things to talk about with any of the six girls whose makeup she did. And the most important part – they all looked beautiful and loved their makeup – which lasted amazingly well all day and into the night!

Yvette and her girls did amazing work for my wedding. We had a large group of people to get ready, and they were very patient, helpful and fun to have around. The final result was exactly what I was after, the makeup lasted all day, and looked perfect in all the photos. I cannot thank you all enough!

Love a classic red lip, luscious lashes and one hell of a hair do!

I love the classic timeless look of a red lipstick with a clean eye – be it a nude eye, smokey or a subtle eye. Always need to finish this look off with lots of lashes!

The best look is a full set, but all individually placed – luscious, but not heavy and fake looking!

How to achieve flawless luminous bridal perfect skin

Luminous, flawless glowing gorgeous skin is what all brides are after.

Unfortunately – this cannot be achieved through makeup alone.

Just like a weight loss plan, most girls start months before the wedding,  to achieve that perfect bridal figure, a skin care plan is just as important.

The problem is, many brides just do not have a facial budget, so try to go it alone. Below are two links which I hope will help you to achieve perfect skin.

Cleanse your face for better skin!

Why should I exfoliate?

Why use me?

I am sometimes asked what makes my makeup different?

The answer is simple

I believe that makeup should enhance a woman’s natural beauty, not change the way she looks.

How to achieve healthy beautiful bridal hair!

14440999_1385581118136194_5806420605213101261_n

Getting your hair bridal perfect is not an overnight occurrence. It takes persistence and time plus the assistance of an amazing hairdresser!

Thin lifeless hair will not look more amazing with extensions  – it will just not look like you, the hair extensions will show at the roots, and look terribly fake.  Healthy fine hair will often not need extensions to allow the hairstylist to achieve amazing things! But if extensions are needed – they blend in smoothly and more naturally.

If you are lucky enough to have wonderful thick hair, it is still not foolproof. Thick one layer hair is just too hard to control – you cannot curl it or work it, let alone pin it up! It needs layers cut into it so that it does what you want it to do.

All one layer hair, be it thick or thin will not curl that easily or hold a curl, so no matter how much hair you have – some layers will be necessary.

If you have mouse brown hair which never plays nicely – having some foils added to your hair starting at the roots, will give it more texture, as well as showing off any curls or waves added to the hair. Bleaching the hair damages it – therefore giving the hair added texture. Adding a darker colour, will just soften the hair up and not make it any more manageable.

Most brides turn up with photos of girls with treated blond hair – this is because treated blond hair is so much easier to style. If you do not have treated blond hair – you will never be able to have a blond hairstyle as your hair will just not hold as well. Naturally, blond hair will also be an issue.

Using the correct hair care – and washing your hair correctly will make an amazing difference to your hair – read Wash your hair shiny and healthy for the best hair washing advice!

Something which has become a forgotten art – is the art of brushing your hair regularly. Get yourself a stiff hairbrush and brush your hair a few good brushes every day. Give your hair a really good brush before your wash it – this assists in releasing all of the oils and dirt from the scalp, helping you get it super clean. The idea is to brush your scalp more than your actual hair. Brushing across the scalp stimulates the blood flow as well as I said before releasing the dirt and oils. It also spreads the oil from your scalp through the hair helping keep your tresses healthy and shiny! Stimulating the blood flow to your scalp – helps strengthen the hair as well as helping bring nourishment to it.

Eat for healthy hair as well. A diet high in Omegas – flaxseed oil, avocado, eggs, and fish just to name a few will add glossiness and thickness to your hair.

Animal and plant proteins will stimulate growth and thicken it. Add Spirulina to your diet – it is high in protein and other hair enhancing nutrients! The added benefit is that Spirulina increases your energy will levels – helping you work your way through all of your wedding plans!

Take a skin and hair supplement to give your hair what it needs (as well as your skin!) The supplement should contain Zinc, Silica and Vitamin E just to name a few goodies.

Drinking filtered or bottled water for your hair (not from the tap – too many chemicals) is just as important as is drinking water for your skin.

Follow all of these rules to have the best ever bridal hair!
