Recent Press

Recently I’ve been involved in a lot of exciting projects which I’m pleased to share with you.  The year is drawing to an end, and I’m so privileged to have worked among the industry’s finest!!

You might remember my post on Jasmine Star’s Workshop a while ago.  It has since been published in the December/January issue of  Wedding Magazine, one of the biggest publications in the wedding industry.

  

Dashing Magazine is a brand new online magazine designed for the ‘stylish and spirited girl’, and is the brainchild of Fanni, Josie and Charley.  I was asked to do a sixties-inpired photoshoot with the Wonderwoman Emma Case, check out the story here (our shoot is on page 70 – 77)  Be sure to subscribe to the magazine, it’s full of beautiful content, and has such a fresh design, perfect for lunchtime reads!!!

See Hear, a program by the BBC focusing on the deaf community, did a feature on the amazing photographer, Ashton Jean-Pierre’s work.  Kat from Rock ‘n Roll Bride asked me to do her (and husband Gareth’s!) hair and make-up, as they were the models for the shoot.  Ashton mainly shoots in film, I simply love the raw quality of his work!   You could check out the full shoot here, and the program on BBC iPlayer here.

Jasmine Star Workshop – A Make-up Artist’s Review

So a couple of months ago Kat from Rock ‘n Roll Bride asked me if I would like to get involved in doing the make-up for a workshop. Not just any workshop, this would be supernova wedding photographer, Jasmine Star‘s first UK workshop.. Needless to say, I jumped at the chance!

Jasmine is a hugely successful photographer based in the States, and her workshop was an inspiration to everyone who attended, whether you’re a photographer or not. I think that’s mostly because the core of it is to identify what makes your brand, YOUR brand. To isolate what sets you apart, and to use it to your advantage.

The little bits that I manage to hear in between doing the make-up were brilliant, I had so many eureka moments on the day!

Thanks again for Jasmine and her husband, JD, for inspiring us, and Kat for organising it all!

Some of the photographers who attended the course wrote reports, check it out HERE

Ok, I know it’s been AGES since my last blog entry, but I guess life happened.  And we struggled with web access for over a month! (But that’s another long story…)

Ooh! But I finally quit my job, so I’m now Elbie van Eeden – FULL-TIME FREELANCER.  It kinda has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?

Exciting week ahead!!  Tonight I’ll be meeting up for drinks with Kat from Rock ‘n Roll Bride, wedding photographer extraordinaire Jasmine Star, all of the photographers attending and the rest of the ‘behind the scenes crew’ taking part in tomorrow’s (!!!) workshop, which I blogged about here.  I can’t believe that this day has come around so fast!! I’m very excited to be a part of this, doing the make-up for tomorrow’s shoot, and working with so many talented and inspiring individuals.

I will keep you updated with the ongoings via twitter, and might even sneak a couple of pictures in!

And in future, I’ll try my utmost best to be a better blogger… PROMISE!

What I’ve been up to recently, and a request…

So it’s been a while since my last post (sorry!) but I just thought that rather than posting something that has been said before in other beauty blogs, I had to work on what people actually WANT to see.  (Feel free to rant, babble, spill your dreams in the comments!)

Ok, so there are BIG THINGS happening in the near future, all will be revealed soon!  In the meantime, why don’t you check out the sneak preview of the Rock n Riot shoot I did with Rock ‘n Roll Bride?  A full list of suppliers and more about the day of awesomeness will be released soon, but here is a iPhone pic I took:

In similarly exciting news, I’ve been asked to do the make-up for Jasmine Star‘s UK workshop in July!!!  For those of you who don’t know, this amazing photographer has taken the world by storm with her workshops on branding, and for the first time, she will be in London for an inspiring day, sharing her experiences and helping other photographers improve their brands.

This has been published in the July issue of Photo Pro Magazine.

Some of the people who will be involved:

Kat from Rock ‘n Roll Bride, who organised the event,

Wedding Magazine, who will be styling the photoshoot, as well as featuring it in an upcoming issue,

Severin of the Hepburn Collection,

One Marylebone,

Pollen Nation,

The Recipe,

Great Hire

I’m so excited to be a part of this amazing project, and can’t wait to share my experience!

 

Ok, so here’s what I need from you…

I have already asked on twitter earlier what people would like to read on a wedding hair and make-up blog (things that haven’t been repeated over and over again!) Now is your chance to help build the blog into something useful for future brides… so…. GO!!!
