Real Weddings – Alice’s fancy up do!

On friday of last week I got to do the very lovely Alice’s wedding hair and make up.

I went along to her mums house to get Alice, her mum and one of her bridesmaids ready for the big day.

Alice came in for her bridal trial about four weeks before the wedding and we worked out a look that was perfect for her.



(not the best lighting for this pic!)


Alice wanted a make up look that would emphasise her eyes so we went with a subtle smoky eye. I used a mac paint pot in Painterly as a primer and then foxy from the naked 2 palette as a base, I created the depth on the socket line with limit and nooner and added darkside and blackheart to the outer corner of the eye, all from the naked 3 palette.

I also used short and medium flare lashes along with brown liner . The skin was kept very fresh with mac’s face and body foundation and a pink blush.

We finished off the look with a coral lip using Im-Passioned from mac.



For Alices hair she wanted an up do that incorporated a braid and a messy bun but she also liked her hair to be big too! So I created volume across the top and the sides, french braided along both sides and then used the rest of the hair to create a messy buy at the back! I absolutely love the finished results!

Alice was getting married at Merchants Hall and despite the sky looking very grey the rain held off until around 5pm (It’s good luck to have rain on your wedding day apparently!) and by then they would have all been sitting down to eat!

Alice I hope you had an amazing day, and thank you for having me as part of it!

Stay Gorgeous

Grace xoxo
