A fairytale wedding

On Friday I had the pleasure of doing the make-up for Katie. Katie was given my details by Philip Harvey of 20-20 Sounds, who also happened to be our DJ for our own wedding last year. We had a trial at the end of January and luckily she liked what I did and I was booked! Her wedding ceremony was at Upnor Castle and her reception at Bridgewood Manor hotel.

On the day I had five ladies, including the bride to make-up. Katie's dress was a very pale pink and her bridesmaids all wore soft grey. Her make-up was fresh and glowing with a soft grey smokey eye. I also gave her a full set of temporary individual lashes for the day

I primed her skin with YSL Top Secrets Protective Make-Up base. This has an SPF 30 and really helps to brighten the skin. I left this to settle in, then used Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua base along with Laura Mercier Secret Concealer. I highlighted using the classic YSL Touche Eclat and a touch of Benefit's High Beam on the brow.

For her cheeks, I used Pixi Bronzer all over followed by Pixi's Pick-Me-Up Pink blusher.

Her eye make-up is all by Urban Decay, I used Skimp, Zephyr, Gunmetal and Crystal. Along with Urban Decay's 24/7 Liquid Liner. After I applied the individual lashes, I blended them with her own with a coat of Max Factor's Waterproof False lash effect mascara. It's one of the few I trust to really stay on even when tired, tearful or raining!

Her lips were made up using Laura Mercier's lip stain in Shy Pink and Pixi's Maxi Lip Booster.
