Sophie- Modern Fifties Style Makeup for an Orleans Gallery Wedding

Sophie was very specific in that she wanted a semi- vintage- inspired look but wanted to keep things modern, bright and youthful with a fresh and light base. She didn’t want to look cliche as she had done at a previous trial so we tried a few makeup and hair looks for her wedding day during her trial.

During Sophie’s trial we toyed with a french side plait blended into Hollywood styled waves. A modern nod to a vintage look which also kept one side of her face exposed. Whilst she loved this she decided that actually she wanted a semi victory roll half up half down style with some small fresh flowers entwined.

A subtle contoured eye using Bobbi Brown eye shadows with a small flick ( Inglot and Surratt liners) and lashes added subtle drama to Sophie’s look, we finished with a pink nude lip and peach based blusher and bronzer to keep any red flushes at bay- Sophie didn’t want to be layered in foundation so with some clever colour correction we avoided that.
