Today I had the enormous privilege of doing the bridal makeup for a truly lovely lady. Sarah was marrying her Australian beau with a city wedding in Southampton, where Sarah is originally from. The couple had spent a lot of time planning this special day, with the Groom even drawing up a spreadsheet with times, names and numbers so that everyone was super organised. However, he didn’t plan on five women all needing hair & makeup done – oh and having a giggle with a glass of bubbly! Needless to say we had 10 minutes to spare for Sarah to put on her wedding gown and get to the church on time!!
Sarah wanted an elegant, natural makeup to match her beautiful Parisian-like features, with just a hint of colour along the crease of the eye and adding definition with false eyelashes. Sarah also wanted to keep the lips light and bridal pink, so I used Bobbi Brown lip liner in Pale Pink and lipstick in Pale Mauve. I also added a hint of contour with Nars Laguna Bronzer and blusher in Orgasm.
I loved working with Sarah and her wonderful family, and wish her all the best in her married life…with plenty of cats!
