On saturday I had the pleasure of doing the make up and hair for Rebecca and styling the hair for her bridesmaids. I met Rebecca only a short time ago when she saw my sign for the studio and called to enquire about wedding make up.
When she came in for her trial I felt like I had known her for years which was great and made working with her and her bridal party even more fun! Even her glamorous mum got in on the action (she reminded me of my mum who is also very glam!)
Rebecca told me she had originally planned on doing her own make up but after a blue eye shadow incident for one of her birthdays her fiance suggested that maybe she shouldn’t! After a chat about what she wanted we established a natural but defined look would be best and definitely no blue eyeshadow!
The other thing we had to work with was an amazing head-piece Rebecca had from Herione Harbutt, it was beautiful and had a slight vintage feel to it so we wanted to create a hair style that worked well and showed off the headpiece.
For the make up I wanted to create a subtle warmness to the eyes, I used limit and nooner for the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette in the socket and outer corner to create definition along with a few short and medium flare lashes, everything else we kept very natural, a dewy looking base with Illimasqua skin base and a pink blush, Rebecca finished the look off with her own lippy.
For the hair the style was a loose frech braid going from one side all the way round with the rest of the hair softly waved and loose. We kept it off the face which meant the headpiece was perfectly on show!
For the bridesmaids I curled their hair and used the Batiste XXL Plumping Powder to get volume through the top and back before sweeping the curls over to one side, I finished off the styles with the cute flower clips that Rebecca had got from etsy, they had the perfect amount of sparkle in the middle. My favourite quotes of all time came from Rachel “Grace you are like a hair wizard!”.
I think you will all agree that Rebecca looked absolutely stunning, and I have to confess, I never get emotional when it comes to weddings but when I saw her in her dress it actually bought a tear to my eye!
I had such a lovely morning with everyone, the sun was shining and even the photographer Simon got involved with doing up one of the bridesmaids dresses!
