Letter from the Editor

Managing Editor

Summer is almost here and to celebrate we bring you a most beautiful cover from our friends at Blades and Beauty in Antrim, showcasing the freshest of summer looks.

Our cover model Michaela is working the hottest barely-there make-up trend, inspired of course by Meghan Markle’s wedding day look.

Who can forget the fresh-faced look Meghan rocked on that amazing wedding day? I knew I just had to see how it’s done – and believe me, it takes real skill and lots of time to create this barely-there look.

The talented team at Blades and Beauty are super creative and specialise in dramatic make- up and editorial looks – they are most at home on the catwalks of Europe - so I set them a challenge to show me how to create a stripped back, fresh- faced beauty look.

I’m sure you will agree they have nailed it and I think this barely-there look is one that we are going to be seeing a lot more of in the coming months.

And of course don’t forget, while our cover models are stunning, they are normal Belfast girls! Here at Local Women we use local talent and we love to see girls-next-door like Michaela from Dundonald shining. If you want to be a cover girl or model for us – drop me an email.

This month’s Local Women features some amazing local ladies and we are proud to bring you the best of real life stories from your area from our team of award-winning writers.

Local Women is your magazine – so if you know someone who should be featured in our pages let us know!

Until next month,
