Let them eat CAKE!! 5 days to go!!

Mayflower events and their super yummy cakes will be joining us once again to help celebrate our 1st Birthday! Just 5 days to go until our fair now and here is one of the top 5 reasons to visit…


At each fair they have almost, if not completely, sell out as their yummy cakes and treats are always so popular, and look so pretty too.


They will be running our vintage tearoom, serving tea, coffee, cake and other delicatable delights on beautiful vintage china. So you can sit and relax in between browsing the stalls and taking part in the craft workshops!

Mayflower Events specialises in organising, styling and catering for tea parties and supplying beautiful vintage crockery, vintage china, cakes and catering for weddings, engagement parties, hen parties, stag parties, birthday parties and christenings in Sussex, Surrey and Kent.

Tell us a bit about you and what you do/ make….

I am a Make-up Artist and Hairstylist based in Brighton offering a full range of make-up and hair services including vintage styling.

What do you enjoy most about being a Make-up Artist?

I like the variety and the fact that no person is the same. It’s always exciting to interpret what the customer wants and see them smile when they look in the mirror. I also love problem solving on customers such as those who suffer with redness or rosacea etc. It’s always a nice feeling when you can show them that they can have the make-up they want and feel confident.

You will be providing a vintage parlour workshop for The Fairy Tale Fair- what will your parlour involve?

I will be offering a range of taster vintage hair and make-up sessions from false lashes to victory rolls. I will also be offering glitter tattoos for children and adults who fancy it! Plus I will be selling a range of vintage inspired pretty products for customers to take away and use/gift to someone. I will also be offering tutorials on how to do various make-up and hair styling.

Can people pre-book with you, or find out more?

Yes people can pre-book by emailing me at mailthebeautyartist@gmail.com I will also have a booking list running on the day so people can pop themselves in to a slot. I have lots of photos and further information on my website too at www.thebeautyartist.co.uk

You took part in our Christmas Fairy Tale Fair- did you enjoy it?

Yes I did, it was so much fun! I can’t believe how many people came along especially considering how grotty the weather was. There was a lovely atmosphere there on the day and I loved the variety of different stallholders who were there. Everyone who attended looked very chuffed with the fair.

What are your plans/ ambitions for the future? Or have you already achieved them?

It’s been a great achievement establishing a name for myself as a vintage styling expert over the past 6 years and I am pleased to have been one of the first, if not the first, to bring vintage styling to Brighton many moons ago! Going forward, a natural progression for me eventually will be going into teaching new stylists as I mentor a few new stylists now. I am excited to see what the future holds for The Beauty Artist!
