Martina- Radiant summer make up and sixties inspired updo for a Barn Wedding

Brides, Country Leave a Comment

A low key, natural makeup look with a nice bright lip for her summer wedding  was requested from Martina.  She had the most beautiful wedding dress and wanted to show it off and let it speak for itself. And that is what she got.

Martina was quite keen to try her hair pinned up and away from her face during her trial in South London. We set it in some curls and had a play with shape and texture at the back. We decided on this soft sixties inspired updo. The head piece makes it especially beautiful.

Tina, the lovely Mother of the Bride required a blow dry from me to tame her already larger than life hair. She wore a beautiful bespoke dress, made by a local designer. It reminded me of something my Grandmother would have worn, lovingly tailored and in an unusual and classy colour. Her fascinator is one the best I’ve ever seen.

Martina wanted something classic yet youthful for her Bridesmaid and sister, Gemma. We opted for a smart and sassy low chignon and a coral/ pink lip. Not to be without her usual lashes Gemma was super chuffed that I had bought some especially for her.

And yes, those gorgeous red lips stayed on all night.
