Real Bride, Cerian

Back in the summer I had the pleasure of doing Cerians make-up for her big day as well as her bridesmaids and Mum... Here are a few images from the day. Cerian wanted emphasis on the eyes with a neutral lip and fresh, glowing skin.

Couture Bridal Wear Shoot

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of doing the make-up for a new look book for E&W Bridal Couture, shot in Cardiff by Oliver of OJ Creative. The collection, designed by Sophie is a range of bridal separates and dresses which are absolutely gorgeous and really unique. The make-up was very simple with glowing, highlighted skin, a flush of mauve eyeshadow and neutral lips.

Strong Bridal Make-Up Before and After

I often get asked for something a a little bolder than the natural bridal make-up look, if you want to add some glamour to your wedding day, or usually wear strong make-up daily then this is the look for you. 

This look is all about the eyes using natural browns, golds and a feline flick as well as layers of individual lashes.

Here are a few steps involved in getting this gorgeous look, and a before and after shot.

Key Products used: Avene Moisturiser, Smashbox Photofinish Primer, MAC Paintpot to prime the eye, Lorac MegaPro Eyeshadow pallette, MAC Pigment in Tan, MAC Face & Body Foundation, Illamasqua Lipstick in Starkers.

If you'd like to discuss bridal, prom or special occasion make-up please get in touch.

Styled shoot @ Hensol Castle with Cwtch The Bride

A few months ago I had the pleasure of being involved in a Vanity Fair styled photo shoot with top welsh wedding blog Cwtch The Bride. They had a wonderful idea, to use real local brides to model a collection of Two Birds bridesmaids dresses as well as Mooshki vintage dresses, all set in the idyllic location of Hensol Castle. The shoot showcased some of the best wedding suppliers across South Wales, including amazing hair styling by Yume, Cardiff as well as beautiful dresses, headpieces, flowers and wedding props.

Here are some of my favourite images from behind the scenes, more pictures can be seen on my facebook page and bridal portfolio.... enjoy! X

Before and After Bridal Make-Up

Firstly I need to thank Georgia for allowing me to put up a before and after picture of her getting ready for her wedding day.

Georg wanted a natural look, but with a brown smokey look to her eyes and neutral lip.

These are a few images showing some of the steps involved in doing the make-up for her big day. Sadly I don't have any to show you of her foundation or skin work but you get the idea, I hope you enjoy! If you'd like to know more about bridal make-up please email me for information. info@jessiemakeup.com
