New mum beauty…Michelle’s wedding at The Italian Villa, Poole

It’s new mum Michelle’s wedding today at The Italian Villa in Poole!  Michelle was suffering from a little baby brain earlier in the week, where she forgot to pick up her wedding dress from the seamstress – but she luckily remembered in time and thus the wedding prep went swimmingly this morning.  Michelle wanted a really soft, pretty ‘new mum’ look – so just something to brighten up those tired eyes and inject a little warmth and highlight to the skin.  I kept the eyes nice and pretty using an Urban Decay palette Naked 3 and keeping to the pinks, with using the darker side just on the outer corners to strength the look and contour ever so slightly.  I then worked hard on Michelle’s skin, priming with a couple of different primers – undercoating with a highlighting cream, then adding a couple of layers of vitamin rich foundation.  Then I added a Clinique airbrushing concealer pen under the eyes, on the middle of the forehead, down the nose and on the chin.  Finishing with the usual blusher, highlighter and a little bronzer.  For Michelle’s lips I used MAC’s Creme Cup lipsticks to keep that pink, soft element x
