It’s always lovely when I see the whole bridal party having fun in the morning getting their hair styled and makeup applied, and really celebrating together those last few girlie moments before one of them goes off to be somebodies wife! It brings back all those secret planning chats at the back of the class, discussing what wedding dress you’re going to wear or what flowers you want – even though you’re just 14! So I always adore coming up with designs for the bridesmaids & flower girl as there is a sense of freedom to their approach.
I like to design something similar to their gowns, as I know how much effort it takes to pull a colour scheme together so I want to work with that. It’s also good to keep the makeup almost identical to each other to get a more unified look, where the eye isn’t constantly distracted by the different combinations of colour in photographs. For flower girls I like to keep it really simply with just a sweep of a sweet pastel colour for the eyes and a tiny amount of blush.
