Emily wanted a soft smokey eye makeup, gorgeous clear skin and a French roll hair style for her wedding at Hedsor House. She also booked me for her bridal party, wanting the makeup and hair styling for all of them to look classic, elegant and refined.
Emily wanted a rich smokey eye in chocolate tones, we avoided black as we didn’t want to wash out her complexion. We added individual lashes to thicken her own and creamy blushers to contour and add natural lustre and sheen to a winter complexion.
Emily’s hair, like many of my clients was super fine. Pre trial we conversed over Skype and email about possible treatments and specific conditioners to help thicken the appearance and promote healthy growth.
To add density and volume to Emily’s style I used a small piece of hair styling donut along with thickening and volumising products to a blow dry and roller set.Her French roll was finished off beautifully with a pearl hair piece.
Emily’s absolutely gorgeous sister went for a flawless skin finish too, along with a smokey eye with aubergine and antique gold tones. I also gave her layers of mascara to really help those blue eyes pop. For hair I set into 25mm tong rolls with a heat protection curl cream for body, texture and shape and brushed out into a looped bun.
