Looking back over the year at some of my portfolio work, and came across this beautiful 1930’s art deco inspired winter bride. I personally organised this styled shoot back in March, at the National Trust Portland House located in Weymouth. I wanted the makeup design to be very much my interpretation of the 1930’s party scene, with a modern twist. As often I feel that couples want to go with a theme, but get bogged down in making it authentic – whilst they should really do their own take on the era, and make it personal to them. Which is what I wanted to reflect in the makeup design.
I started of with the eyes and made a very basic outline of a smokey eye, then filled in the centre of lid with MAC’s glitter in gold. I then neatly lined the eyes and used some vintage looking false eyelashes by Eylure. Filling in the brows to a natural arch and depth, I then created a flawless base for model Chloe – using a formula I have personally created for her. Something which I do for all of my models and clients I regularly work with. I then swept a strong line of peach blush along the cheekbone, and used MAC’s lipstick in Rebel with MAC’s dazzleglass in Funtabulous (discontinued) over the top to finish x
