Real Weddings – Melissa’s 1920’s themed wedding!

I was super excited about Melissa’s wedding as it was a 1920’s inspired theme which meant there was going to be some heavier make up involved!

When I met Melissa at her trial, I felt like I had known her for years, which made doing her make up even easier! On a day to day basis she wears a fair bit of make up (by her own confession….not mine!) so she didn’t want to be any different on her wedding day!

Just lips to be added and hair to be finished!

We wanted to stick with the twenties theme and go with an exaggerated winged eye liner, Melissa had perfect eyes for this look. I built up the eye shadow with browns and a soft grey and then went fairly heavy with the eyeliner, and of course some flare lashes! I used Melissa’s own foundation as she likes the coverage it gives. Contouring and Highlighting worked well with this look and to finish it off a ruby red lip!

As the hotel rooms were some what cosy I didn’t stay to see Melissa in her dress but she sent me some photos and she looked amazing! Her sister-in-law did her hair and she was picture perfect!

I also did a couple of the bridesmaids make up and they all looked lovely!

The wedding was at the Square on Berkley Square in Clifton, which was a perfect setting!

Congratulations Melissa, I hope your day was everything you dreamed of!

Stay Gorgeous

Grace xoxo
