Client: Sophie Baker
Occupation: Student

Service utilised: Special Occasion Make-up Application


I first met Sophie, with her mum, for a one-to-one make-up lesson and then a few months later I had the great pleasure of meeting Sophie again (one afternoon) to apply her make-up in preparation for her Prom that evening.

Prom Make-up….. all ready for the party!

I loved how both makeup styles turned out and I would definitely recommend Jane to anyone looking for help putting together a style for a special occasion

’Before and After’ Photoshoot

Getting past clients back to my studio for a ‘before and after’ photoshoot is always so much fun! It’s not only wonderful to see the person again and hear all of their news but I also get to create a wonderful new look, that’s maybe a little bit more ‘adventurous’, now that they are confident in my abilities to create a look that enhances, not masks, their beautiful features.

Sophie has gorgeous pale, porcelain skin with a natural flush of colour across her cheeks and nose, and a few blemishes. My aim for the photoshoot was to demonstrate how these blemishes and the slight redness under her eyes could be camouflaged and then the eye make-up used to make her eyes ‘pop’ and become the focus of the look. Sophie has fantastic eyebrows - naturally dark in colour and of great thickness (- no over plucking, yay!!). So, all that was necessary was for me to gently fill in the eyebrows with a dark eyebrow powder and to tame any stray hairs into the perfect shape to frame her eye shape. No false lashes were applied, just mascara.

Sophie is a natural at posing for the camera, as I’m sure you’ll agree…

Neither of the above photos have any filters or editing applied to them.

Sophie looked amazing in her Prom makeup and Jane did a wonderful job; Sophie’s dad did a double take when he saw her! I really liked the simplicity of the second style and was not surprised that again Jane had created a simple style which looked great on Sophie
