Before the Wedding
It’s very rare for me to gift a bride my services on her Wedding day but I made an exception to this Lovely bride – Dami. She’s the CEO of St Claireshair. Majority of the hair I own is by Dami. She is such a lovely lady and a joy to always work with on her photoshoots. When she spoke to me about her wedding I decided to gift my services to her which was a huge delight to her.
On her wedding day, I arrived at her prep location, did my set up and started after her hair was prepped by Hair by Abike. Dami has combination skin but with a very oily T-zone. I started off with cleansing her skin with Garnier micellar water and hydrated with only MAC fix + spay. Then her brows were filled using Anastasia Beverley Hills brow definer in chocolate. On her eyes, I used sorely Violet Voss holy grail eye palette and some glam mink lashes. On her skin, I applied a pea-sized amount of Embryolisse lait cream all over her face followed by Becca Ever matte primer on only the T-zones.
For the foundation, I used Armani Luminous Silk foundation followed by Kevyn Aucoin the etherealist concealer. This was set using Laura Mercier loose setting powder in Translucent followed by a mix of MAC studio fix powder in NC45/50. How stunning does Dami look though!
For Dami’s second look, she wanted to sparkle and glow! So I started working on her eyes by applying Urban decay glitter liner in glam rock all over the lid then used my fingers to press in MAC glitter in Silver.
I then applied Danessa Myricks enlight powder in gotcha glow to the highest points of her face. On her lips, I applied a high sparkle gloss from MAC. It’s a limited-edition gloss, unfortunately. Her hair was done by the fabulous Chrissy Bales.
