I first met the lovely Katy over zoom during lockdown for a skincare assessment and she soon jumped on board with her new @tropicskincare routine. Many, many months later when I finally could get back to work #covid - Katy was the second bride to have back in my studio and it was SO lovely to get my hands back into action.
💫On the wedding morning Katy’s porcelain skin was smooth, clear and bright and was a make up artists dream to work on. Katy’s skin can be prone to a bit of shine so the make up was kept matte but with the right products a glowing and radiant look could still be achieved.
Products I used were:
♡ @delilahcosmetics colour intense eyeshadow palette -Jezebel
(Use code LOUIL20 for 20% off)
♡ Tropic Complete colour palette containing
♡ Cream Concealer - macadamia
♡ Blush: Pinch me pink

🌺A hot pink rose symbolises gratitude, appreciation, and recognition and is a perfect way to say thank you.🌺
This week will be the first wedding I have worked on since the beginning of lockdown in March 2020 so, I thought this was a good time to say......
🙏Thankyou, to each and everyone of you who have supported me this last year, whether it’s been through following this page or @beautyritualswithlouise , perhaps switching skincare brands to @tropicskincare or following my journey into @thehayoumethod Chinese Medicine Daily Rituals and getting that Gua Sha Glow. Just being there and believing in me I feel a huge amount of warmth and gratitude.
💕Finally @maisiejacksonnails my beautiful daughter has made the very most of such a difficult year, stuck it out, threw herself into a level 3 nail technician course, is now qualified and, look at what she can do!!! Thank you Maisie for my wonderful nails - Wow we have some exciting times ahead. 💕
Red has always been the color of fire, passion, and attitude.
Red lips are classy and edgy, polished and elegant and for any occasion a red lipstick always wins over others.
Teamed with flawless skin - voila 💋
❤️I can help choose the red for you - Makeup lessons available - Dm for more info.
I am taking my Gua Sha practice to a whole new level!
When @beautyritualswithlouise began I @louiselunnmakeup set an intention to bring to you, a place where I could share my knowledge and expertise of skincare, self care and some of my favourite beauty rituals.
Many of you will have had a 1-2-1 Gua Sha techniques session with me, where I have shared my passion and knowledge of Gua Sha Massage, through basic training with the Hayo'u Method and previous experience in facial massage.
⭐️ TODAY I can announce I am embarking on a certified and @iphm_ accredited Facial Gua Sha Teacher Training course, developed jointly by the Founder of @thehayoumethod @katie_brindle, Head Therapist - katie_theskinwhisperer, and Danielle Collins @faceyogaexpert.
I firmly believe this path was made for me, last nights Super Flower Moon certainly has brought new beginnings and opportunities. 🙏🌕
The world of cosmetics has changed so much since I first started out in the industry back in the good old nineties. 🤫

I have completed the @iso_clean Cosmetic Standards Course for Makeup Professionals and can assure you I will be following strict COVID-19 guidelines to keep us all safe and protected.
It's officially a new season, which means one thing - a makeup and skincare spring clean.
Not only does cleaning up your makeup and skincare routine benefit your skin, but it’s also a great activity for the mind.
Taking time out of your schedule to go through your products and check if they have passed the point of no return is a really good way of decluttering your shelf and your brain. Typically, your environment reflects your state of mind, so if the area where you get ready every day is cluttered, it’s likely that your mind might be too.
One of my favourite products for ensuring a streamlined makeup collection is Tropic’s revolutionary Colour Palette!
From beautiful eyeshadows to dewy highlighters, and so much more in between, choose your favourite products to create one of (literally) millions of possible combinations and enjoy a personalised makeup routine.
By creating your own personalised palette, you can also cut down on beauty product waste. How?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1️⃣ You're only buying the products you really use.
2️⃣ When finished with a product, the pan containing the product is the only part that needs to be discarded. This pan is 100% aluminium which is widely recycled.
3️⃣ You can refill each product in your palette simply by slotting a new product pan back into the exact same tray.⠀⠀⠀⠀

‘Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.’
💗I LOVE my job as a make up artist and can’t wait for the day when I can open up my kit and get back to working on all you special people. In the meantime I’m keeping myself busy over on @beautyritualswithlouise 💗
Facial gua sha is simply the greatest gift you can give your skin.
Combined with crystal tools, gua sha works with the meridian lines and acupressure points to stimulate the circulation, boost the lymphatic system, help clear toxins, reduce the appearance of puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles and lifts, sculpt and plump the skin!
In Chinese medicine, Rose Quartz is believed to tonify the heart qi, which makes it an ideal skincare choice. A strong heart helps to maintain a healthy blood flow and circulation, which ensures the skin gets all the nourishment it needs.
It is also linked to positive emotion which is something we all need a little help with right now. 🌸

When temperatures drop, there are certain ingredients in our skincare routines that should be on the up. Here are five key ingredients to help boost your complexion over these cold winter days....
🧡 Rosehip Oil - Extracted from rosehip seeds, and packed full of omega oils to moisturise and soothe skin, as well as antioxidants such as vitamins A, C and E to brighten and protect in equal measure. It’s also effective at soothing the symptoms of eczema and psoriasis, two conditions the winter weather can play havoc with due to a more rapid change in temperature between inside and outside!
💚 Vitamin E - This ingredient has been around in skincare for a long time, but with good reason. Cold air can leave our skin feeling irritated and dry, but vitamin E is a natural anti-inflammatory and works hard to soothe and calm our skin.
💦 Aloe Vera - This refreshing plant extract is one we often associate with summer, with its cooling properties making it an effective addition to aftersun and sun care products. However, its hydrating, antioxidant, and soothing abilities have earned it a spot on our list of winter-proof ingredients as well.
✨ Vitamin C - Skin can look duller during the winter, caused by the dryness and moisture-loss we’ve already talked about, but vitamin C has been proven to effectively brighten and even skin tone, so your skin keeps on glowing!
🥥 Coconut Oil - A rich source of fatty acids, coconut oil has occlusive benefits for our skin and traps moisture. It also assists our epidermis by reducing transepidermal water loss to keep our skin nice and hydrated!

It’s certainly a year none of us will ever forget and I hope you are all keeping well and safe over this 2nd lockdown.
I have worked on two weddings this year (I usually would have had the pleasure of working with 50+ brides by now!). I SO miss the face to face contact with my brides, bridesmaids and lovely Mum's and, that wonderful warm feeling I get when I know I have played a little part in making someone feel special, giving a boost of confidence and self esteem.
I may have been very quiet on this page but let me tell you behind the scenes I have been working hard adapting to new ways to run my business, building new collections and learning new skills. (BIG CHANGE after 25 years in the industry!).
I can now offer:
•Virtual Skincare Assessments
•Virtual Make up Lessons
•Virtual Gua Sha Facial Sessions
•Virtual Tropic Pamper Sessions

✨Follow @beautyritualswithlouise to find out more ✨...
And so here we all are - almost through the first day of the 2nd national lockdown and I would like to share this with you......
When we had the 1st lockdown I had so many concerns and anxieties about my life as a makeup artist and how would I cope without my weddings!
The time I had I used to reflect and reset through strengthening and stimulating my solar plexus chakra. I found inner confidence and personal power to make some positive changes to my life. Doors opened for me and I confidently followed new pathways and, so began @beautyritualswithlouise
Becoming a Tropic Ambassador @tropicskincare and offering Gua Sha facials @thehayoumethod was the beginning of a very exciting chapter in my life and one that I am so proud to be sharing with you all 🧡
Use this time wisely, go easy on yourself, believe in yourself and good things will come your way 🙏
To all my future brides I can’t wait to meet you all ✨
