I am so thrilled to bring my 20 years experience and expertise as a make up artist to the stars into the mainstream, offering real women the opportunity to have a touch of my magic up close and personal!
I’ve had the BEST couple of days. I have been assisting the super talented Celebrity makeup artist Gary Cockerill hot on the launch of his fabulous new lashes. He has spent the last few days creating works of art at the Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar in Liverpool, making women of all ages look like Hollywood Starlets with his new lash range. Gary has created 16 sets of daytime to playtime lashes using 100% human hair with immaculate attention to detail, creating diverse looks from ‘Sultry Siren’ to something more natural such as ‘Damsel in a Dress’. Gary is makeup artist to the stars, even Eva Longoria is on his client list. Now you can wear lashes worn by Hollywood icons and look fabulous with ease. Whatever look you’re going for, there is a set for everyone, from the lash virgin to the lash veteran. What I LOVE about these lashes are that they are so lightweight and easy to apply. They have the thinnest spine, ensuring precise and easy application as close to the lash line as possible; something which can be difficult with synthetic lashes! If you love lashes, get yourself to beautyMART and buy some, you really won’t regret it.
He has launched his lashes at beautyMART, the brainchild of the wonderful Millie Kendall and Anna-Marie Solowij, two women who know the beauty industry inside out. Millie has worked for HUGE brands such as Shu Uemura and Aveda whilst Anna – Marie is respected for her journalistic approach to beauty for her time as Beauty Editor at British Vogue. BeautyMART is such a fantastic concept, with over fifty years of industry experience between them, they have handpicked beauty products that they know you will love and brought them to you in such an easy, accessible way – genius! Set in the ever glamorous backdrop of Harvey Nichols Liverpool and flagship London store, it’s a shopping experience like no other. It’s a treasure chest of products in one place and you know that these products are trusted by no other than industry insiders.
I met Millie a few weeks ago when I went down to London and visited the beautyMART HQ to snap up some of the amazing products they have to offer. It’s from this that this fantastic opportunity has blossomed and I really am massively grateful. She’s super friendly and has really given me a great opportunity and I hope to work for her again in the future. The beauty industry is definitely where I know I should be and have loved working for Millie and Gary – it really has been a pleasure.
