Before the Wedding
My lovely au naturel bride – Chinelle?. During our consultation, I actually lost count of how many times she mentioned the word ‘natural’. However, she left really pleased with our session?.
On the Wedding
On her wedding date, I arrived at the beautiful Landmark Hotel. I absolutely love this hotel! I started makeup before hair due to the hairstylist coming in at a later time. After cleansing her skin, I lightly combed her eyebrows using a clear brow gel and filled them in with just Anastasia Beverly Hill’s brow powder in Chocolate. This kept the brows looking natural. On her eyelids, I started with MAC paint in laying low applied all over her eyelids followed by Violet Voss Holy Grail eye palette which was used to create a soft wash of colours on her eyes. I skipped using any product in her waterline to keep her eyes looking soft and natural. Chinelle had individual lashes done some days to the wedding so I didn’t use any more lashes on her.
To keep her skin glowing, I mixed Embryolisse lait cream with Charlotte Tilbury’s wonder glow and applied it all over her face going down her neck. Foundation used was NARS all day Luminous Foundation followed by Too Faced born this way concealer. This was set using RCMA no colour powder. Blush used was NARS Orgasm and highlight used was by Becca cosmetics – A mix of Opal and Topaz. Finishing up on her lips, I started with MAC lipliner in Cork followed by Dose of colour liquid lipstick in Stone. Fenty gloss bomb in Fussy completed the whole look.
