Lauren and her very sunny New Forest wedding at Careys Manor, Brockenhurst

This morning I had the wonderful pleasure of doing Lauren and her bridal party’s wedding makeup, in the gorgeous Careys Manor Hotel in Brockenhurst in the New Forest.  And what a sunny day for a wedding!  Lauren lives in Bournemouth, so knows the forest well and really wanted to celebrate her special day in this beautiful setting – and who can blame her?!

Lauren wanted her makeup to look quite natural, yet still have that ‘wow’ factor.  So I kept her base very simple using MAC face & body foundation, and added a light touch of blusher followed by a little highlighting on the top of the cheek bone.  I then drew emphasis to the eyes, creating a medium to deep smokey eye with a neat line and gently popped a neutral eyeshadow through the brows.  I then finished with a bespoke lipstick I made for Lauren x
