#Lashes or no lashes? for #bridal make-up choice??

Lashes or no lashes? That is an important question… one, perhaps you thought you’d never ask??? But as a bride choosing her make-up for her big day, ask yourself now!

What is a #bridal # makeup trial?

Even the last minute of booking need a bridal make-up trial and proper consultation… why? Well, without it no make-up artist, no matter how skilled and experienced they are,  can truly be as prepared as possible for their bride… and no bride, no matter how confidence and pretty they may be, can really put faith in a look that has not yet being tested out first… after all it is the single most exciting and important day of your life to date (for the most of us!!!)

Make up Bridal trials are all about making your bride-to-be feel confident and beautiful, so they know exactly what to expect on the day of the wedding. We often fear the unknown, and being afraid on your wedding day is not an option, especially when it comes to the make-up.

Finding out what look a bride is looking to achieve, asking about the style of the dress, hairstyle, colour scheme and achieving the perfect finish is all done during the consultation! Tony Gameiro photos Kent

Also, the trial is a great time to make any last minute changes, it is also a lovely opportunity for a bride to get to really know how the make-up artist works, and for the make-up artist to really take the opportunity to make you, the bride-to-be feel totally at ease.

Make-up tips for those #laughing #crying days…

Brides… Weddings…. Make-up…. oh no kissing…. champagne… laughter… tears of joy… HOW CAN I STOP MY MAKE-UP FROM SMUDGING?

This is a beautiful summer bride of mine from Summer 2017, and her stunning and vibrant images taken by Tony Gameiro award-winning Kent photography, reminded me just how much brides cry and laugh on the most magical, often emotional day of their entire life.

Weddings are cry-laugh days and these days can be a bit of a nightmare if you haven’t got your make-up sorted… here are three tips:

  1. Have tissues just in case… if you are a traditional bride – tuck it up in your garter. Remember to dab the tears preferably in a mirror as opposed to wiping or smearing across your face.
  2. If properly applied, make-up should have staying power – opt for waterproof mascara just in case.
  3. When it comes to lipstick… apply liner and primer, plus you can always spritz a fixing spray all over your face to set and finish your look giving it more staying power for those tears of joy and that nervous laughter.

Amazing before and after #bridesmaid picture…

My lovely bridesmaid from last month has allowed me to share her before and after photo of her make up I did for her.

Many people do not like to be seen without their make-up, but it isn’t anything to be afraid or ashamed of, I really see the beauty in all of my clients, and when I bring out that beauty with a natural make-up look, it is really great to be able to see the transformation of confidence.

This bridesmaid has suffered with burns on her cheeks from having to use steroid medication when she was younger, and as a result was left with very red cheeks and sensitive skin.

I used @airbasemakeup to give a very even and flawless coverage lasts all day. As you can see I have applied the make-up to completely reduce the redness and inflamed appearance of skin, but still creating a crimson blush look that all sexy bridesmaids need. Under the eyes have been focused on too, reducing dark circles. I have defined eyes and eyebrows to bring out her beautiful eye colour – that as you can see have an amazing sparkle of confidence in the after photograph.
