We have been busy this week doing wedding makeup near Chippenham and have had the privilege of being part of two weddings. Last Tuesday I was in Yatton Keynell with Stacey who wanted a natural classic bridal look. So I used golds, champagnes and browns on the eyes, a flush of pink on the cheeks and lips. Stacey had her hair half up, half down with fresh flowers arranged in it. Her friend Jo as former bride of mine did her hair, she looked beautiful. Weather plays a big part on a wedding day it was good for Stacey although we did panic a bit when we heard some rolls of thunder.
The second wedding makeup was at the Manor House, Castle Combe. It was a glorious morning and the bride Sharon and her bridesmaid Jo were chilling when I arrived. Sharon’s wedding was 1920’s inspired with a beautiful 1920’s style wedding dress. We did not go full 1920’s makeup as it is very dark and the bride was not used to wearing makeup so we went as natural as possible but with good definition on the features. We used champagnes and earthy colours, used bronzing and highlighting and a hint of natural blush on the cheeks with a deeper pink on the lips. For Jo, Sharon’s daughter and bridesmaid, we used navy and champagne on her eyes to tie in with Jo’s dress, a beautiful navy chiffon dress, with a champagne jewelled bodice being finished off with a creamy fluffy bolero. Her eyes were complimented with a natural blush and lips. Sharon’s dream of having her wedding outside in the pergola on the lawns in front of the Manor House were realised, as the weather was beautiful. However everyone bought their wellies as the grass was a little wet.
We have also been busy with wedding makeup trials and are looking forward to the weddings taking place in May and June. Prom Makeup and Hair trials are also booked in this week and the first Prom is my daughters on the 12th May.
I have created a mood board for a glamorous prom look I hope you like it.
