Before the photoshoot – clothes, make-up and tack!

I created a poll on my Instagram where my followers could vote if they wanted to have a like before behind the scenes of a photoshoot I had with the amazing Elizabeth ❤️

They could vote for blog or vlog, neither or both. And they voted for both!

So I thought I would share what I wore, what I did with my hair & how I prepared Danza on here. Then make a make up vlog with some top tips for your next photoshoot!

What am I wearing;

Top is from Quiz I really love this shop as it has clothes for all different shapes and it is not very expensive.

I am wearing black high-waisted jeans – hides a multitude of sins!! Which are from American Eagle

My shoes are from Schuh and they’re on sale!! (Omg I’m so jealous right now!) link to the shoes – they’re beautiful and really comfortable!

Danza is wearing her Micklem bridle I bought her second hand.


I am not great with make-up it has to be said! So it is very simple. If you want to know what I used – you’ll have to check out the vlog.

I will say this though! I bought a new foundation from No7 and I absolutely love it. Here is a link to it. Cheap, easy and variable- so cool!

I wore my hair natural as didn’t have time to curl it – which was my original plan.


So I don’t have any fancy brushes i just use a curry comb and body brush first. I then take a sponge or a cloth dip it in water and slide over to get even more dust out the coat(black horse is like a magnet for dust) before finishing it off with show shine. Mane and tail gets a brush through with main and tail tetangler.

And we are now ready to go!

Hope you enjoyed this little one even though it is a bit different from my normal blogs!
