On the Saturday of Easter weekend I went along to the Woodlands House Country Hotel in Brent Knoll to do the hair and make up for Blanca, her mum and sister.
The bridal party were Spanish and they had a lot of their family staying at the small hotel, that meant only one thing…. It was very loud! But it was so much fun, and to be honest hearing lots of people around me speaking in Spanish made me feel like I was on holiday!
Blanca’s sister opted for a lovely simple hair style, it was a volumised half up half down style with small braided details at the side. Fir her make up I created depth on the outer third of the eyes with a brown tone and used black gel liner on the outer third only. I kept the skin nice a glowy with a cc cream and a mineral powder over the top and finished off the look with a light pink lipstick.
Blanca’s mum hardly spoke any english so after a few hand gestures to indicate the hair style she wanted I went through and straightened her hair but flicked the ends, I then put volume through the top with some plumping powder. For her make up I kept it fairly natural with the skin and a soft definition on the eyes, but we finished it off with a bright red lip! I am judging by the thumbs up and the si si si that she was happy!
For Blanca we wanted to create a softly curled side style that had a twisted braid around the back and then all the curls were gathered to the side. Blanca had ordered a lovely headpiece that had peach toned flowers in that finished the style perfectly. For her make up we kept the skin looking soft with a glow, again using a cc cream with a mineral powder and a soft peach blush. Here eyes were defined with a soft and a deep brown shadow and a winged gel liner. To finish off we used a peachy pink lipstick which was Blanca’s own.
I had so much fun with them all and even had an invite to Madrid…..when is the next flight?!
Congratulations Blanca, thank you for including me in your special day!
