Bride of the month

Bride of the month

Hope you are all having a lovely week. I’m back to show you again my bride of the month. I love doing bridal makeups its so different than regular day to day makeups, its much more personal.

I find as a makeup artist you really get to know the bride as a person, which I love. It is very important as I need to create a makeup style to suit their personality. A brides day is the most important day of their life so its so awarding to enjoy the moment with them.

Tina was a spring 2016 bride, I know this seems like a lifetime ago now as the months have just flew this year. Where has the time gone?. I always wait for brides to send me professional photos of the day to post up a blog ,as it lets me show you the special moments of the day.

 

Tina was the nicest person ever and so calm.

Her makeup was Glowing and flawless. Look at that highlight.

Foundation was Mac Studio fix fluid and Nars radiant creamy concealer.

The eyes were all Matte tones with lashes and smoked in the waterline to add definition.

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.
