The one request that 95% of my brides have when we do a trial is ‘I want to look natural’. This description is completely different to everybody as one persons natural is another persons nightmare. To ensure that we are singing off the same hymn sheet I’ll usually ask a number of questions to get a feel for the type of person they are and what is natural to them. This week’s bride is a perfect example of a really light bridal makeup.
Today’s bride is the very beautiful Claire. Claire wanted a really really simple look as she wouldn’t wear much makeup on a daily basis and as all brides do, wanted to feel comfortable and herself on her wedding day.
As you can see Claire is a stunning girl anyway so I did extremely light eyes with browns to accentuate the colour of her own. Then I added a few single lashes,with some light highlighting and contouring and a pink stained lip to finish it off.
This is quite a daring look for those who would be used to heavier makeup application but is very effective and a stunning look for those of you who are willing to try!
Would you try this for your wedding day?
Hello Beauty Lovers!
I just want to share my favourite picks of the week. In the spirit of Halloween I can’t help but mention some of my favourite bodypainting products and tools as well as a few beauty products that I am using at the moment that I love!
Hello Beauty Lovelies!
As you know I do alot of weddings. It is a fantastic part of my job, which means that I get to partake in someone’s special day. I am always delighted when brides are kind enough to share their photos with me.
I am an avid reader of many blogs and often buy products based on reviews that I read. This usually works out, but there is one purchase that I was really disappointed with, the Shu Uemura eyelash curler. It was touted as the holy grail of curlers, from Lisa Eldridge to our very own Beaut.ie this tool couldn’t put a foot wrong!
I have been rocking something a little different from my usual French Manicure. One of my favourite colours is blue, so I decided to go for an aquamarine colour. You know I love my glitter, so I went for a sparkly top coat. If that wasn’t enough, Ying (from Penrose Beauty) added some green and silver sequins to the accent nail for extra sparkle.
