Happy New Year! 2017 has officially begun and we are starting the year off with some very exciting news! 

www.cljmake-up.com is a national finalist in the Best Wedding Industry Web Site category! The winner will be announced and presented at the National Awards Event taking place at the Cafe de Paris, London on Thursday 12th January.

The Best Wedding Industry Web Site category is presented on a national basis only (there is not a Best Wedding Industry Web Site award for each region).

400 TWIA entrants opted into this extra category and 31 have been shortlisted for the national award and we are one of them!

I have spent many hours personally developing and building cljmake-up.com. It was really important for me to create a site that was not only informative, but visually engaging. I really wanted the site to reflect my personal style and personality. Hopefully I have managed to execute this with my extremely limited tech skills! I want my site to be as user friendly as possible so if you do have any feed back please feel free to drop me an email with any thoughts you may have.

Cheers to 2017!

Wella Trend Vision Award 2016 Finals

It all started back in February, at London's Toni and Guy Academy. Hayley had a vision, and with a little help in the make-up department we came together to bring it to life! Fast forward eight months and one regional final win. Hayley and I were standing in Camden's iconic Roundhouse watching all the talented finalist battle it out for their Wella Trend Vision Gold Winner!

Being on Hayley's Wella Journey with her was such a proud moment for me. Her creative talents and eye to detail shinned through every step of this competition. Hayley's vision was to create a hair colour that represented the natural tones in fur.

"When it is parted you see denser tones at the base, fading into lighter tones to the tips of the hair".

Artistically brilliant and technically challenging! Her inspiration floored me, the way she sees colour was so refreshing!

When approaching the make-up for this look I wanted the focus to be about the hair. I could have gone down the 'fashion' and 'smokey eye' route. But for me this was about nature, the beauty in a natural living creature. The make-up had to be natural, it had to be flawless and it had to show off Hayley's vision!

My stomach was in knots as the Ireland and UK bronze and silver winners were announced.

"Well that's it!" Hayley said as the UK silver winner picked up their trophy. 

She was convinced that she was out! But oh no! 

"Your Wella Trend Vision Award UK Gold Winner goes to" .....

"TONI AND GUY"S HAYLEY AUSTIN!"

The whole place erupted in applause! All her hard work had paid off! She had given her all and she won Gold!  

To see Hayley up on the stage collecting her trophy literally bought me to tears! To me this wasn't just a job! For me, this was an opportunity to bring another artists vision to life. So much hard work goes into these competitions from the photography to the wardrobe. 

Hayley is now going on to represent the UK in Barcelona for the International Finals. Unfortunately I can not continue the journey with her due to being away on holiday. However I would just like to thank her for having me and to say that I am beyond proud of her! 


Wella Trend Vision Award 2016 Regionals

CLJ Make-up have a close working relationship with many of the incredibly talented stylists at Toni & Guy. We love being on hand to assist with make-up for their many shoots and competitions.

So we were thrilled when Covent Garden's colour technician Hayley Austin asked us to create a make-up look for her 2016 Wella Trend Vision Award entry. We shot the look at Toni and Guy's London Academy with British Hair Dresser of the Year Kevin Luchman. Our entry made it through to the Regional finals which took place at London Heathrow's Sofitel Hotel. Wella were the perfect hosts, putting on an amazing show. Guests included some of the top hair dressers within the industry. 

The competition was high, so when Hayley's name was called out as Regional Winner, I literally jumped out of my seat! Hayley is now through to the Finals which is taking place 10th October. I am so excited to be joining her as her make-up artist. 

The Trend Vision Award 2016 Final is the very first event to be held in the brand new Wella World Studio London at One The Strand. This means we will be amongst the first people to see the prestigious new studio, which both Hayley and I are extremely excited about!
