Rosie- Perfected Skin and Gold Smokey Eyes at Babington House

Rosie and I met for coffee at St Pancras to discuss her wedding at Babington House. As a sufferer of teenage and hormonal acne she wanted everything covered for the day in as natural and flawless a way as possible. She also wanted a dramatic gold smokey eye.

Rosie’s skin had a thorough cleanse; I first used Simple Cleansing Milk to remove surface dirt and debris then cleansed with a polyhydroxy acid to really soothe and remove any impurities. It’s also a great hydrator. I finished with an anti bacterial tonic water with rose extracts, Heal Gel Intensive and Murad Oil and Pore Control Moisturiser with SPF.

We went with a full on gold and brown winged smokey eye and nude lip so her base had to be completely flawless. We also went a bit crazy on sculpting her incredible cheekbones. We chose powder illuminators and blushers to help mattify but give her complexion subtle sheen and I used Kryolan Dermacolour and Vichy Derma Blend- both amazing, highly pigmented oil free foundations and concealers for her combination/ oily skin to give a truly flawless finish.

Her gorgeous Mumma opted for FULL. ON. GLAMOUR with flawless skin, a navy and grey sparkly smokey eye to compliment a bespoke gown.
