My second wedding this year was again with one of my favourite Wedding Photographers, Laura McCluskey. Ally contacted me after Laura recommended me ( isn’t she a sweetie?) She already had someone fabulous to do her hair and wanted a Make Up Artist to complete the look.
I absolutely LOVE that so many of this year’s Brides are brave enough to go for a gorgeous red lip. Each of them wanting their own specific tone to set off their individual look. Ally chose Clarins’ Ruby Lip Liner. It went perfectly with her skin tone and beautifully auburn hair.
I kept everything very fresh for Ally, at her trial we tried a bronzed smokey eye but we both decided it competed too much with her dress, head piece and red lip. We settled for a natural bronzed palette of pinks and oranges which are part of the Clarins Spring Summer 2013 Collection.
The Bridesmaid’s each had a loose idea of what they wanted, I gave Geri a sexy smokey eye along with her red lip to go with her heavy fringe, Nissa wanted something natural but sexy so to compliment her gorgeous big brown eyes I gave her a cat eye of lashes with a just bitten red lip. Anna wanted to look natural and radiant so we kept the red lip, added a gloss sheen and made sure her eyes had a glamorous glow.
Isn’t this ‘Mother’s first look’ the most beautiful picture?!
These last two gave me goosebumps…
