Katie got in touch with me wanting perfected, radiant skin and bouncy lush hair for her wedding at The Bingham Riverside, Richmond. I gave her romantic, wavy hair and subtle eye makeup, resetting the bad relationship she’d had with skincare and makeup since her teens.
During Katie and I’s initial consultation over Skype she asked for a bright funky makeup, she was keen to experiment with something ‘out- there’. After chatting more and finding out how she’d had skin troubles in her teens; acne, oil over- production with confusion on how to treat it, I convinced her to let her natural beauty shine through with the help of a facial ( she booked on at the Gina Conway at Aveda salon in Wimbledon ) and some gorgeous and technical skincare, foundation and layering work by myself. We used Exuviance’s Gentle Cleansing Cream with Exuviance’s PHA Bionic Facial Pads. I moisturised with La Roche Posay’s B5 Gel and her skin with finished with a combo of Vichy Dermablend Foundation, Dermacolour by Kryolan and Bobbi Brown Retouching powders.
During the trial we set her hair with some hot rollers, I prepped with Batiste Dry Shampoo and L’Oreal Go Create Sculpting Spritz and finished with Vo5 texturising spray and root powder and Schwarzkopf Got2B Freeze Spray. I then adorned her hair with dainty lilac and pink flowers provided for me by the incredible Ali at Bloomologie. Perfect romantic, wavy hair and radiant skin.
