Cheryl has been shaping and tinting my eyebrows for sometime and always does a fantastic job. Not being one to wear much make up I thought I would have a masterclass on eye makeup as I have an event coming up. Cheryl worked with my preferences in mind and using both my basic makeup and her high quality brands, she talked through each individual product, explaining what each product does and how it works. I've been colour matching concealer and BB cream wrong for years!
Following this she taught me how to apply using the tricks of the trade and together we created a natural flawless finish. It was a really fun informative session and Cheryl is so passionate about what she does. I can't wait until she glams me up again!

Cheryl, it was great to meet you and thank you SO SO much for making me feel less out of place with the famous people!! ha ha!! You made me feel comfortable from the start and I loved the results....such a difference but still me! I will be back! Thank you again. x

Cheryl did a fabulous job of making me look beautiful for my sisters wedding this weekend. So knowledgeable and understood exactly the look I wanted, Cheryl has an amazing collection of products and is so passionate about what she does! Was a pleasure spending the morning with her too as she has a great personality! I was also breastfeeding my 5 week old and she made sure at every point I was comfortable

Thank you so much for our Halloween make-up we had so many positive comments.

Lovely lady with the patients of a saint with my 3yr old, doing her Halloween face.
Thank you so much! She keeps showing everyone she comes across with the biggest smile

Cheryl did such amazing job at glamming me up on my milestone birthday. She listened to my needs attentively and made me feel a million dollars. Thank you Cheryl!

Cheryl is a very experienced make up artist and extremely passionate about her work. If i need advice re make up she is the one to ask for advice.

I was unsure because I do like the feel of lash extensions. Having my lashes done by Cheryl changed my view, it does not feel like you have lashes and they look amazing xx

Every visit to Cheryl is a delight and such a treat. You are always made to feel special and nothing is too much trouble. It is always a pleasure to book a treatment, sit back and be pampered and leave transformed! Thank you Cheryl xx

Having the organic facial with Celebrity Facial Therapist Cheryl Huggins, was the best decision I have ever made. Her massaging technqiues are superb! My skin still feels very smooth, line free, brighter and more importantly lifted. Cheryl is armed with a wealth of information and beauty tips, and her professionalism is outstanding. I could listen to her for days . I am so happy with my organic facial that I will definately be returning. Thank you Cheryl for Making me look and feel fabulous!"

Tips for a Natural Makeup Look

Finding a Natural makeup look that is just perfect for you can seem a daunting task, nothing too heavy, or thickly textured will give that completely natural look. Applying a colour that is too light or too is dark will detract from your makeup looking completely natural.
Choose a colour that are a very similar shade matching your natural skin tone, giving a perfect balance by enhancing your skin. For a perfect makeup look, follow the tips and guide to achieve a great natural look just for you. 

Hydrate the skin
Moisturise daily to improve the skin surface, texture, and to give a balance of additional hydration this will allow the skin to repair and give a perfect surface for your makeup.

Remove any unwanted marks, blemishes or dark circles with a carefully applied concealer, and leave your skin radiant ready.

A light textured foundation or a light dusting of powder with a fluffy brush or blending sponge will set the skin giving a natural flawless finish. Apply evenly for best results.

Best Brows
Have your brows professionally shaped to maintain a perfect arch with the many hair removal options that are available, including waxing, threading or tweezing. On finding your best method use powders, gels or waxes to keep them in shape.

A subtle cream, liquid water colour, or powder blush will accentuate the face shape and define the eyes, depending on your skintone, you can choose a shade that will add a hint of colour gently buffing or blending across the cheekbones.

A neutral shade that will add definition use a muted shade of beige, browns, or even opal shimmers to open the eye area without creating a darker more smokey eye. If leaving eyeliner is too natural invest in a mid brown powder shadow to line the eyes, this will enhance the eye area without the makeup application  looking too heavy.

Thin layers of brown or black mascara can look flattering and open the eye, even further why not give the lashes a treat by opting for a conditioning mascara instead of a thickening brand.

Matte, Gloss or cream lipstick would give a perfect finish, to complete your look, choose a colour that is similar to your lip tone or a shade that will accentuate and flatter your natural makeup look.

Beauty + Makeup Secrets for Business

Dressing for success and great images on social media platforms will always enhance your professional image tenfold. With 3 seconds to make that all important first impression, when walking into a office, boardroom, classrooms, networking events, we now have to ensure our online images also deliver tremendous impact immediately. Professional guidance and care should not be underestimated and these Top Beauty and Makeup tips will see you groomed and professionally ready for those online Skype, conference calls, and Live presentations. 
Every aspect of your image should be a reflection of your business, and the Company you represent, start with minimal makeup application, this will give you more confidence and competent skills especially for photographic and media images. Try using professional makeup brands to emphasise your natural features, enhance further with  softening colour choices and cosmetic textures that will enhance your skin tone.  Warm powders and creamy textured cosmetics will flatter if you are in harsh office lighting, bringing attention to your complexion, and eyes.


Our skin will immediately benefit from a daily refreshing dose of cleansers, fragranced facial mists, exfoliators and nourishing moisturizers should be used on a regular basis to deliver a healthy youthful glow. Always use the best products for your budget I would highly recommend a detox to your skincare regime, smooth away dry skin, blemishes and premature ageing by returning to the professionals for advice. For the best results your skincare routine should be one of your most important beauty considerations, seek a recommended facial specialist to determine your skin type, and skin condition. Many of the cosmetic houses and therapists offer this service and sometimes will include a free skin consultation check out your local department stores and salons. With so many wonderful brands available you will need to research to make an informed choice. 

The rule of cleanse, hydrate and repair still remains an important route to retain a healthy looking skin. Remove all traces of makeup every evening and ensure your skin receives any additional vitamins, repair, nourishment and sun protection. Using the correct moisturizer will assist in keeping the fine lines of dehydration to a minimum. Remember the additional use of a sun protector with a high SPF (Sun Protection Factor) will give your skin great protection from further UV damage which is detrimental to all complexions.
Maybe now is the time to update your skincare routine to ensure great results when applying makeup, you are your business do it justice with the best Cosmetics for you.


The look and shape of your face can alter drastically, when on camera, so with defined and perfectly arched brows enhance your features, creating a lift to the eye area. Once your brows are defined, shaped and groomed by a brow specialist, keep the shape maintained by removing any stray hairs with tweezers. To create a great shape, start at the middle of your brow with brow pencils, powders or waxes and aim to fill in the arch. 
To achieve great images for social media, it is important that the brows are matching, groomed and defined by a professional, who may choose to achieve your shape by performing colour matched tinting, threading, waxing and tweezing.
Your makeup application will also require less preparation time when getting ready for that important meeting. Use light natural strokes that resemble real hairs, when trying to achieve a natural brow, the use of a tinted brow gel will hold the hairs and give a 3D colour effect. 
There are many brow serums that have had extensive rave reviews, which can be so flattering for those who have thin, or sparse brow hair. Tinting your brows delivers intense colour and lasts up to 4 weeks, fantastic treatment for those who travel and do not have time for the salon.


This is a must beauty secret to open the eyes and create the illusion of fuller, longer healthy lashes, especially for those who have not joined the army of women who love lash extensions. Keep the bright coloured mascaras for your days at home but black brown and dark navy can greatly accentuate the eyes. I wish that all mascaras added, thickness and volume, with exceptional water resistance and conditioning formula's, but they don't so establish your favourite look for your lashes and make this a beauty must have. The availability and choice is outstanding, choose a brand that doesn't get clumpy, and leave the raccoon eyes to the novices by adding a thin layer of primer to the base of the eyes and the lids, this will cut down on creasing and smudging. The shape of the wand delivers that all important blast of intense colour to those lashes, and is important in your ability to rotate or wiggle the wand, practise and find the best technique.

Do not to pump the mascara as you will allow air and bacteria into the opening of the mascara and possibly contaminate the product. Once you have completed your lash application let them dry, and for a much fuller look apply another layer to MAXIMISE the effect..


Have fun selecting the best blusher for your skin type and face shape, contour carefully using powder, stick or even cream blushers, that are so easy to use. Look out for naturally flattering corals, soft rose toned palette, or for ladies of colour brown and copper shades look amazing. Shimmers are great for creating those stunning cheek bones, with an illusion of natural highlight just above the bone to add shine especially with bronzers. A pop of blush on the apple of the cheeks will add immediate warmth to your skin tone, swirl the brush causing the pigment to give a great payoff (shine and density) 
Avoid harsh reds, electric bright pinks which under office lighting, can have the opposite of your desired look and offer on camera a overused and painted doll look!  Use a fan brush to create an even and smooth application, keep your blush directly within your eye line using celebrity makeup artist tricks. 
Layering is the best trick, find the perfect shade for your business functions, tap the brush before application to take off the excess powder and slow light sweeping action will deliver the best results.


Gentle exfoliation of the lips will ensure that the lipstick application is always smooth, always use sun protection in this area as the lips have the thinnest skin and can easily burn. Lip balms and lip oils will condition and repair dry chapped skin. Choose a shade that will compliment your natural makeup look without being too harsh or overtly sexy on camera. Keeping the focus simple, remember lip liner is not always needed, however to enhance the cupids bow with precision start in the centre of your lips with a sharpened lip pencil and work out to the corner blending with a clean lip brush, blend, then blot lipstick this will ensure a longer lasting finish, then blot again.

HOW TO Find a great Nude Lipstick

Do you love the signature full lips of Angelina Jolie, Kim Kardashian then try and be your own makeup guru and create your own nude lip.

The best nude lip color is not too hard to find, however with the vast number on the market you can shop and research to try and select a beautiful shade that replicates a neutral tone similar to the color of your natural lip tone. 
The nude color lipstick will suit your complexion and add warmth to your natural skin tone this will flatter any eye makeup and allow your natural beauty to shine. 
Your lip shape, color and texture will bring out the subtle eye or dramatic makeup look, add a nourishing lip balm to deliver a kissably baby soft lip, delivering classic beauty and radiant style.

Go neutral and stay ahead of the game for those early morning breakfast meetings with a rose hued creamy matte lipstick or add a enhanced shimmer gloss for high drama later in the evening, pair this with the all important super sexy smokey eye for the best radiant look without harsh lip lines.

My favourite lip liner has to be M.A.C Cosmetics spice, with a number of brands that are always in my makeup kit including Daniel Sandler, Charlotte Tilbury, Bobbi Brown, Stila, Nars, huda Beauty and many more...
Have fun choosing your perfect nude and creating your own signature iconic lip look.

Look for a colour that matches your lip shade and match with a slightly darker hue of liner and smudge into the lip with your finger or lip brush and blend. The blurring and blending out of the lipline can define and give the illusion of a fuller lip shape, sharpen your liner and fill in to give the 3D illusion. Using a hint of rose, creamy browns to plump your pout add a high sheen. To ensure your lipstick stays on layer with foundation and blot with powder, this adds as a primer, line then apply your lipstick for best results. 

A nude lip is easy to apply, choosing the best selection of nude lip tones in your bathroom cabinet, so throwaway the makeup rule book and design your best natural lip ala Kim Kardashian and many Alist celebrities.The shade of the Lip product can often be difficult to view in the container, it can be difficult to choose your perfect shade from an online swatch, always look for a tone that matches your inner lip and not the colour of the skin on the back of your hand. The skin on the lips must be soft and smooth to 

Model Claire @divasanddudeshairboutique

The best time to try a nude lip is when you are totally makeup-free so ensure that you choose the correct tone for your skin. A pinky taupe or a neutral rose shade will suit most skin tones and complexions.
