A couple of months back, I was lucky enough to team with up a group of amazing creative wedding industry professionals on a Bridal Shoot located in Leigh-on-Sea. We had two themes for the shoot; Urban Chic and Boho bride. Before the shoot, I had time to plan my make-up designs to match the different themes.
The first look we shot was the Urban Chic. Personally, I love a bolder bride who is not afraid to move away from the traditional bridal make up and choose a statement look for her wedding day. This theme allowed me to create something different and really experiment with the make-up.
Although keeping the skin fresh and glowing, this look was a little more glamorous than a traditional natural bride. With a smoky wing liner and a gorgeous cherry lip. Our model, Sophie, had stunning blue eyes and the dark smoky cat eye really worked well with them, making them stand out even more. Defining the brows and contouring the cheekbones slightly to accentuate Sophie’s natural facial features, the look came together perfectly.
The second look was more of a traditional bridal look; Boho bride. As much as I love brides going for something a little different, nothing beats the traditional natural bride. After the Royal wedding, classic beauty has never been so popular.
On your wedding day, you still want to look like you and avoid being unrecognizable. A flawless but natural version of yourself. As always, my main priority for this look was flawless skin. So, I focused on good concealing, highlighting the right areas on the face. As well as adding a peachy, rosy blush to add colour back into the face. Natural make up still needs defining, so I used neutral shades on the eyes with a darker colour to define the crease and a soft dark brown along the lash line. Our amazing hair stylist Rhyannon created a stunning hairstyle for this theme and it was just right to keep the make up fairly simple. It worked perfectly together.
As a make-up artist it was my job to ensure the make-up was looking flawless at all times. Including lipstick was topped up, powder was reapplied, and the face was camera ready.
The final shots are so beautiful, and I am so proud to have been a part of them.
