I had the pleasure of doing Lisa’s bridal makeup on the 8th July 2016 in Douglas Co.Cork. I arrived in the early morning to the stunning Maryborough Hotel

I set my area up in the outstanding bridal suite. It was filled with natural lighting which was a massive bonus for me, I was ready to get into the job. Lisa was surrounded by friends and family and everyone was calm and relaxed.  They were enjoying each and every moment. It was a pleasure to be part of the day.

I did a trial on Lisa a few months back so we were both happy to keep the same look we originally discussed . We decided to go for a soft glam eye with a simple flick liner to had definition and to add volume to her lashes. The complexion was flawless with perfectly sculpted cheeks with a soft rosy blush to the apples of the cheek.

Lisa’s Dress was stunning. It was elegant with a classic twist, it suited her to a tee. The veil was absolutely mind-blowing, it was the most amazing veil I have seen over my years of doing bridal parties. I took these two photos myself the morning of the wedding to capture the detail.

Her dress and veil was from Folkster In Co. Kilkenny.

The  nude bridesmaids dresses were from Asos , very simple but just so beautiful and complemented Lisa’s stunning gown.

The morning of the wedding Michelle and her two bridesmaids were very calm and cheerful despite a very early start they were excited about the day ahead.

Michelle wanted a make-up look that would suit the theme of the day. So I took into account the time of year , décor, styles of dress and what would suit Michelle to perfection.

The Make-up was a classic look with my unique style. I went for warm brown shades on the eyes which I used The blank canvas master palette. I added a tint of champagne pigment on the lid to really make them eyes pop perfect for the Christmas season. The skin was fresh with a dewy glow with chiselled cheekbones and a peach tone blush on the apples of the cheeks. I finished off with a bold Deep red lip. I LOVE red lips on brides for a christmas wedding it’s so festive.

Enhance your eyes with Baby Doll lashes

Enhance your eyes with Baby Doll lashes

Lashes are a must have in my kit when creating makeup looks. They can intensify the eye makeup and can give the illusion of a bigger eye shape.  Lashes come in different lengths, thickness and styles. I have always found it difficult to find the perfect lashes, the brands would lack in a selection of styles or the band of the lash strip were too thick and are difficult to apply to the eyes.

I Have finally  found the most spectacular lashes.  Baby Doll Cosmetics are an Irish company who launched in 2013 at the RDS. They have a wide range of lashes in different lengths and thickness to suit all individuals.  I have been using BAbydoll lashes for about a year now and I still love them as much as day one., the quality of the lashes are amazing they are lightweight and easy to apply.

The lashes

My favourite are the 870 lashes, they are an average length with a demi wispy effect. The lashes are natural but yet still achieves fullness of the eye.

870_3_large

If you prefer more length and minimum thickness the 795 are the ones for you. I get asked so many times, what lashes i’m wearing when wearing these beauties, the 795 they are light enough for daytime use. They are perfect if you naturally have thick lashes but need to add that extra length.

7955_large

If you like the full dramatic look the 807 are your dream lashes, they have amazing fullness and are super dark, perfect to add definition to the eyes.  Great lashes for party nights out perfect for  a bold make up look.

8014_large

You can purchase The lashes at http://www.babydoll.ie/ , hurry up and show off them lashes girls. There is also new lashes just been added to the Babydoll family  704 and 711 super excited to try them. I am wearing 870 lashes in this makeup look.
