What is it really like being a bridal makeup artist in Kent?

Being a bridal makeup artist in Kent is great fun… there are lots of brilliant locations for weddings and I get to work with some great wedding suppliers too. Check out my new supplier page for my recommendation.

Wedding Seasons:

I love the fact that although there is a distinct busy time of year for weddings, that brides-to-be choose different times of year to get wed…

So I get to do summer looks, fresh spring make-up and warmer looks with richer tones for autumn and festive looks for winter. And whilst there are many trends that are ever changing… brides do like to choose looks based on season, as well as theme and of course their personal style.

Many brides still love a classic vibe, which brings out the natural beauty and there are other brides that love the really strong looks influenced by many of the youtube makeup tutorials and modern trends.

Bridal Shoots:

As there are loads of great bridal creatives in Kent, I get to do some lovely inspirational bridal shoots – in fact I did one just a few days ago with those  autumnal shades I just mentioned… here is a sneaky behind the scenes shot…

I love the strong lips contrasted with the shimmery shadow and full lashes… I’ll be sure to show you the photos soon.

Creatives do bridal shoots for a number of reasons, including to build their portfolio, experiment new looks or demonstrate the skills or show trends, and to get the shoots published.

You can see some of my published work on my press page.

Bridal Hair in Kent:

Again bridal hair is a personal choose, some brides like natural looks and others more classic or even structured up-dos. I have been styling hair for commercial shoots and video for a while and for bridal shoots, and in 2019 I’ll be adding bridal hair to my services, offering brides-to-be a choice of the most popular hairstyles.

Here are some inspirational photos that I have applied make-up on and styled the hair too…

Bridal Nails:

Not all brides remember to get the fingernails and toenails done until the last minute – I offer this service too – and the reason it is great to get your nails done is because then you are all set for the honeymoon too… I recommend you choose a shade or colour that no only suits your theme, makeup and personality, but one that you can live with for a couple of weeks…

My favourites include reds, corals and classic French manicure… but to add a little special touch you can include gems or details on the ring finger, which is a little reminder that you are now a ‘Mrs’ and married. These always look amazing on photos… if you don’t believe me check out some of these nails idea for your wedding day in Kent.

If you are a bride-to-be based in Kent, Greater London or surrounding areas please contact me regarding your special day.

Beach Babe Bridal Hair and Bold Black Lashes

This soft and effortlessly gorgeous bridal hairstyle really draws attention to the eyes and keeps long hair tamed during a summer wedding. Teamed with a flawless complexion and soft pink blush, these beach babe curls look amazing.

Creating the curls

To get the look, section the hair off from ear-to ear and tie the top into a knot ready for later. Take the lower section and tie it into a bun at the back of the head, securing it with pins.

Then take the top section of the hair and create some beach waves with a curling tong. Twist and fix it with spray to set the curl. Take the curls and secure them around the bun at the back, making sure to leave a loose curl to frame the face and that the bun is concealed.

Fix with spray and keep the curls relaxed and slightly tousled for an effortless look! You can add flowers and gems for more sparkle! Check out my short-hair-rescue tips for some more ideas: https://kelliwaldock.co.uk/2018/05/22/short-hair-rescue-three-styles-for-any-occasion/

Try it…  How does it look?
