I’ve never quite mastered the art of applying makeup and have spent hours trying to create smoky eyes, add false eyelashes, or get flawless foundation but somehow only end up resembling a hungover 80’s rock legend. So I’m completely in awe when I see the ease and grace of makeup applied professionally. It’s a real talent and Kent based Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist, Lara Crudgington, has it in spades.
She’s worked with actors, celebrities, presenters, models, photographers, stylists and film makers all over the UK and even finds time to be the resident Makeup Artist and Beauty expert for a new online style website. Check it out!
Based in Kent, Lara is trained in Airbrushing which is perfect for that wedding day beauty must have. She also has a brilliant range of makeup tutorials and group sessions which would make the best hen night ever even better!
So if you’re anything like me and feel makeup for a special occasion is best left in expert hands then check out Lara’s website for prices and more info

In part two of our Planning a Vintage Wedding special we take a look at creating your own vintage look. We caught up with three industry experts who, just like us, love vintage hair and make-up. ALOT!
Christina Jessel, hair and make-up specialist, says “Vintage is very much requested in my work at the moment. Its fun, classic, glamorous and works with all face shapes and hair textures. Adding a beautiful sparkly hair decoration with jewels or an accessory with fine, small feathers really completes the vintage look.
Caroline from Powder and Glow loves recreating vintage make up. “From mastering a 1940’s starlet, a 1950’s siren pout or a 1960’s smokey eye, we can work with you to get the vintage look you want. We also offer personal vintage styling tutorials so you can learn to create the looks yourself”.
Liz Bower from Simply Beautiful Wedding Hair specialises in wedding hair. “It’s fantastic to create a lovely soft, vintage feel, incorportating Marcel waves and twists, finishing beautifully with the most gorgeous hair comb.”
Here’s some inspiration from the ladies!
