Our mission is to work with our clients to show them how to feel super-confident and look fantastic.

So, if you occasionally (or often) feel any or all of these:

  • frumpy and invisible
  • disheartened and frustrated when you look in the mirror
  • as though you are stuck on an emotional roller-coaster
  • aware that you are repeating the same patterns, reactions and responses and getting nowhere
or just recognise that your life could be more satisfying, exciting or fulfilling but you don’t know how to change things then shine is like having 3 best friends who will hold your hand while helping you transform into the confident, radiant, beautiful woman that you – and we – know that you can be.

Welcome to shineBarbara, Paul and Leighanne look forward to meeting and working with you individually or at our next shine event.

From Barbara’s What’s Stopping You? Workshop. Breaking down my goals into segments & identifying the beliefs that have held me back was really useful; I have never really examined my beliefs before or fully understood how they were blocking me. This was a thoroughly enjoyable chunk of ‘me-time’, very valuable & fun & very thought provoking. JH

From my perspective, I feel in the time since my day with Paul my life has changed for the better, I have developed a real motivation to improve the way I look through the techniques and advice Paul has given me, I feel more confident about embracing my feminine persona, I also feel for the first time that I am beautiful and not a mismatched ugly freak which has caused me much personal anguish, stress, shame and denial over the years.  Paul has been the impetus for this change.

I met Paul with nervous anticipation, that went as soon as he opened the door and I was led to his studio, what a beautiful location. Paul very quickly discussed what I was looking for and started his craftsmanship explained what he was doing and why with the makeup he was so exacting, nothing was too much trouble. I was left to get dressed in my first of many changes. Paul advised with some of the clothes that would photograph well.

It was a beautiful day so relaxing I wore some of my new dress’s that was fun to see them in print. Paul is not only a gifted make up artist but a gifted photographer. Rosy

Barbara is an excellent teacher while creating a space for us each to focus on our individual goals. For me it was an opportunity to get clear about what I want and how I have been blocking myself from receiving. I enjoyed it immensely. SA


I met Leighanne last year for a fundraiser she had organised at the Living Room in Manchester, in aid of the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

First of all, she is creative, to the point, great eye for detail and knows how to make people feel good. She also has impeccable style and a real good eye for little quirky details that just turn it up a notch.

For me as a trans woman it was quite a daunting event as previous events have all been LGBT based. I should not have worried as Leighanne doesn’t treat anyone different and you all get the same smile and attitude – in a good way.

Since then Leighanne has styled me for various events, including my gown for the final pageant i competed in, I came second as Miss Transgender UK 2017.
