Christmas Party Make-Up

The party season is looming and its the perfect opportunity to experiment with new looks. If the idea of having your makeup done for a night out fills you with dread you can rest assured you wont end up looking like a drag queen, caked in heavy makeup.

Elegant, party make-up doesn't have to mean layers of heavy eyeshadow and thick black eyeliner, see below a few of my favourite glamorous red carpet and party looks, perfect for the festive season.

Real Bride, Laura

I've just received these gorgeous images of Lauras wedding morning, photographed by Maria Farrelly. I spent the morning in Cowbridge getting Laura, her bridesmaids and her Mum ready for the big day. Laura and the girls wanted glowing skin and a natural, classic bridal make-up. I love Lauras wedding dress from Stephanie Allin Bridal, stunning! x

Natural Bridal Make-Up

Last post covering a recent photoshoot for a bridal house in Swansea. This make-up look is natural and a classic look for a bride, particularly someone who wears no or minimal make-up.

Key points for this look:

Light base colour correcting any blemishes.

Emphasized the natural brow with brow gel.

Enhanced eyes with individual lashes and a light brown shadow.

Please get in touch if you'd like to book wedding make-up or make-up for a special occasion.

Vintage Wedding Make-Up Before & After

'Vintage' is very popular for weddings, whether its a vintage dress, accessory or make-up.

Its great to be able to take different influences from each decade and adapt them to suit each client and event. Be it a 1940's soft coral lip and small flick eyeliner or 1950's bold red lip with a strong black flick and extended lashes, a personal favourite is the 1920's, a soft smokey eye and deep plum lip.

I recently did a photo shoot for a bridal collection and have some behind the scenes images and steps involved in achieving an adapted 1920's look, enjoy x

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.

Bridal Make-Up Trial Swansea

Here are a few snaps from a trial earlier today with gorgeous bride-to-be, Sophie.

Sophie wanted lots of lashes, which we achieved by building individual lashes so that they still looked very natural with a soft flick, some natural contouring with flawless skin and a pink/nude lip.
