HILARY HOLMES’ TOP 20 MAKEUP TIPS FOR ALL BEAUTIFUL BRIDES

October 11, 2018

Great skin equals naturally flawless makeup. Makeup is a crucial part of your wedding day. Not only does it add a beautiful glowy cherry on top of the cake (weirdly, that’s you) but it also is a reflection on your personality. Whether its super natural and fresh or super glam (or anything in between) it won’t look as amazing as it could if the skin underneath isn’t the best is can be.

A MESSAGE FROM HILARY: MOTHER’S DAY

May 13, 2018

I’m now almost a week into my mat leave and unsurprisingly, I’m already bored as hell! But in saying that, the past week has been so full of crazy last minute shopping for the baby and setting up the house we moved into 10 days ago.

We’ve had quite a full on month, with my absence for 6 weeks from the business needing to...
