Afia and her Indian/English wedding at Marwell Hotel, Winchester

It was a lovely sunny, but cold day at Marwell Hotel in Winchester for Afia’s wedding today!

When I met Afia for her makeup trial she was very open to me suggesting what makeup would work for her Indian/English wedding.

After having a little chat we knew we wanted to create something special that reflected both cultures, and as Afia has very modern English tastes she had to feel comfortable wearing the bridal look – something which I feel often get’s lost when choosing a wedding look.  We decided to keep the eyes quite classic Indian with golds, bronzes and plenty of shimmer but with an English lined eye (not too much in other words!) and a beautiful pair of false eyelashes.  I lightly filled in Afia’s already gorgeous eyebrows and then worked to create a flawless base.  Afia is 8 months pregnant at the moment so her poor skin is a little undernourished, so I packed in the moisturiser!

I lastly finished her bridal look with big, bold red lips using Mac’s Ruby Woo and matching lip liner x
