Want to look your very best for the big day? Be sure to book up for Durham make-up artist Lyndsey Morgan's new pre wedding pamper packages, with LVL, dermaplaning and brow shapes and tints now available alongside her regular make-up services. "LVL is a treatment that gives the natural lashes length, volume, lift and colour," explains Lyndsey, Make up Artist of the Year finalist in the 2022 English Hair & Beauty Awards. "It's perfect for opening up the eye area and a fab alternative to false lashes, lasting between six to eight weeks. Dermaplaning, meanwhile, is a manual exfoliation technique using a medical-grade scalpel to gently remove dead skin and peach fuzz. It's a quick procedure that gives immediate results, diminishing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and superficial pigmentation.
