As a makeup artist it’s really important to get hair and make-up that work well together. Here The V Team opted for a wide blunt fringe clip on by Balmain and curls that frame the eyes and cheek bones.
The brows are defined but in a colour that works naturally with light blonde hair… it is good to choose one shade darker than the blonde. You can see I’ve also blended warm golden copper tones on the eyes that really bring out the pale bluey-green colour. And I’ve added an extra lick of mascara on the lower lashes with a soft white eye-pencil along the inner lash-line to really open up the eyes.
Lashes on the top and bottom of the lids also creates a doll-like flutter that works with the fringe and curls.
I’ve applied subtle contouring for a gorgeous flawless soft-focus complexion and a pop of pink glossy colour which is a fun way to round off this modern, retro look.
The 1960s’ bridal look offers a classic vibe, one that is natural, but pristine, inspired by Audrey Hepburn…
Make-up: An overall matte finish is required for this look, with full coverage. Add cream-gold or cream-silver under the eye from the inside corner, and a light brown to blend into the crease of the lid to create drama to this classic and sultry look. Subtle liner is applied halfway along the under eye, but not inside. A thick line of black kohl is added to the top lid. Lashes that are fine and separate in style are applied to open up the eyes even more. Eyebrows are defined in-keeping with this retro look. Matte nude lips are a must and brides can match nail colour with lip colour.
Hair: A beehive style is iconic to this era, but this doesn’t have to be very high. Leave a front section of hair out, and set the back section from the crown in curlers. You can create a beehive or chignon, before clipping the front sections to the side, framing the face. Use shine spray and hairspray during styling to fix the look and to ensure a sleek finish. This elegant style elongates the neck and works with 1960s style high or square necklines.

More and more brides are opting for false lashes… and this photograph taken by Penny Young of one of the brides shows exactly why… she looks so demure, yet flirty… And this is how lashes can take make-up to the next level of special…
The bride opted for a rosy, pink look, with glossy kissable lips… the eyes set the final look off; this look is all about the lashes – and the shadow is there to bring it all together, keeping the lighter shades to the inside of the eye, and building up the colour to the outer black edge. #lovelashes

I see the beauty in all of my clients, but taking a naturally pretty bride and bringing out her inner beauty with the art of make-up is such a joy for me.
This bride has lovely features and I have applied #Airbase airbrushing foundation to reduce the redness on her nose and to even out skin tone.
The lashes open up her eyes, allowing the stunning green to sparkle.
Rosy cheeks and soft pink lips are subtle and pretty to balance out the dramatic eyes.
