Dani- Soft Shimmery Eye Makeup and Natural Lipstick for a Richmond Wedding

Dani got in contact with me via Cecilia Di Vita at Heart Aflutter Bridal which is where she got her gorgeous dress from! Like most of my clients, Dani never wore make up. She wanted to look her absolute best in photos but wanted to do so in the most natural way with a subtle hint of glamour.

During Dani’s trial we experimented with some lashes and a mid pink lip. Even that was going too far (!) So we calmed it down even more, ditching the falsies and giving her amazing lashes more mascara, and instead of lipstick used a tinted lip balm. Dani’s look ended up being a warm ivory gold shimmer across the lid and under her lashes, with a small liner flick. Her freckles were accentuated with Clarins BB Cream for a soft natural base and her blemishes were covered with Vichy Dermablend for a flawless but light coverage.

Her beautiful and crazy maids were our next step. Pam, her cousin wanted a sparkly eye with dusky mid pinks, taupes and accentuation near the lashes. Her lashes were already pretty incredible so no falsies needed! A fleshy lip finished the look. Dani’s sister Fabi wanted a more sultry vintage inspired look. A flick, cut crease to add depth and bright red lip added edge to her blow dry.

For Dani’s hair she wanted a soft, side swept, plaited bun. After setting her hair with some hot rollers I sectioned and plaited and wound them round and into themselves. We added small flowers provided by Jealous of The Roses into the plait to dress things up as there was no veil or jewelled head piece. I gave Dani’s beautiful Mumma a moisturising face massage, a glowy tanned base and really made sure those lashes were noticed with soft smudged liner and lots of mascara. A pink lip set off her navy jumpsuit- YES, JUMPSUIT(!).
