With Mother’s Day just a couple of days away, I hope you all have something lovely planned for your special Mum!
With so many lovely treats we can spoil our Mother’s with, from buying her all time favourite perfume,chocs and flowers. Or the route I love to go down is the craft gifts, heartfelt, time and energy always shows my mum how much I appreciate her. If you’re like me and don’t mind getting the place in a bit of a mess for a little while, have a nose at Pinterest I find it the best place to get my craft ideas!
Our talented makeup artist Lisa had the joy of working on the wonderful Joanna the day of her very special Autumn Wiccan Handfasting wedding. The makeup that Lisa did for this blushing bride was a natural look, and with Lisa on hand for her makeup Joanna was not going to be left disappointed!
Looking absolutely stunning and glowing inside and out and with friends and family not only attending the wedding but also taking part in it. Friends of the lovely couple performed the Wiccan Hanfasting ceremony as high Priestess and Priest for Jon and Joanna. With ever so delicate statement decoration at the wedding crafted and created by Joanna’s lovely mother, the couples theme was taken to the next level in such a gorgeously romantic way.
Moving from one ceremony to another the couple’s second ceremony took place in Zion Church, Rathgar, also decorated beautifully. Keeping in mind all loved ones and not wanting anyone to miss out on the ceremony Joanna made sure that nothing started until everybody was in attendance. Which to me just keeps the entire theme of the wedding going as family and friends played very important roles throughout.
With such a lovely day had by all, we here at the EFC Studios would like to congratulate the lovely couple on such a spectacular day!

Every year we look to fashion week eagerly anticipating new trends and plucking the most memorable, wearable looks for the year ahead and thankfully this London Fashion Week passed did not fail to disappoint! Here are a few to watch out for!
The purple eyeshadow is back it would seem! Varying from softer pinks and lilac tones, a wash of colour completely over the eye was spotted on a number of catwalks this year not forgetting to mention the use of coloured liner below the bottom lash line.
Staying on the subject of eyes Tom Ford brought us some amazing disco inspired and Debbie Harry styled charcoal eyes. Naturally the queen of the ‘smokey eye’ Charlotte Tilbury was the only woman for this job and the results were stunning, coining her glistening silver creation the ‘smoky oval eye’ 🙂 and brows are most definitely still big in every sense of the word!
Gorgeous dewy skin was most predominantly featured and we can place our bets now on seeing beautiful, highlighted skin and lots of gloss in Spring/Summer 2015! Gloss and Glitter! One artist that nailed this look is
the head artist for Xiao Li, pairing a stunning on trend pink with luminous skin.
Then there was the glitter….ALL the glitter 🙂 In clothes, makeup, hair glitter is here to stay well after the Christmas season so watch this space!
Some of these trends I love and think are super wearable however the jury is still out on purple shadow, I love a soft pink myself but purple might not work on some skin tones….lets just wait and see! If there is anything you may have spotted over the last week that we have missed as always we would love to hear!
1.) There is no doubt in my mind that this Halloween, there are going to be alot of Angelina Joliesque characters running about the place thanks to this film. One of the most anticipated movies of the year, Maleficent is going to be huge. Of course MAC Cosmetics always knows have their fingers on the pulse of what is cool, so needless to say they have collaborated with the Disney Franchise and created a wickedly gorgeous Maleficent Makeup Collection.

Wednesday was a bit of a milestone here at Emma Farrell Makeup Creative. It was the first time that the whole creative team worked together officially. It was really exciting for me and felt like a bit of an epic moment, the beginning of so much to come. I have been working successfully as a freelance makeup artist for many years now and I just felt ready to take it to the next level. Having just won U Magazine Makeup Artist of the Year, it feels like the timing couldn’t be better to start the Makeup Creative and open the studios…more to come on that really soon I promise!
Our first mission as a team of makeup aficionados was to introduce the healthy and glamorous brand, Physicians Formula. Read More
