Firstly, sorry this has taken me so long to post! I know I promised this last week, but I got caught up in doing some gorgeous weddings and photoshoots so it kind of got put on the back burner… but today I’ve actually had some time to do tons of paperwork, book more clients in and post a couple of things! So here is how I created a design I call ‘Peaches and Cream’ for our Modern Romantic styled shoot, which currently featured on My Wedding Fair
I started off by creating a medium to deep smokey eye using browns that either had a slight cooper element, or were underlined by a peach tone. All of which were by MAC. I then lined the eyes in a brown soft kohl and blended to give a smooth edge, adding false eyelashes by KISS in Peony, I filled in the brows finishing the eyes. Moving onto the skin I used 2 sets of primers by Dr Brandt and Smashbox – to smooth and prep the skin for foundation. I used a combination of YSL Touche Eclat Foundation and Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation to give the skin a good coating. I then used a blusher by MAC in Peaches (of course) and bronzer by Bobbi Brown in Golden Light. To finish I used a Bobbi Brown lipstick in Coral Pink x

I’ve recently taken the decision to update & change the design of my website to what you now see. Hopefully you’ll find it has more of a contemporary, simple feel with easy navigation and a nice clean look. I’m finding more and more that as the business grows, so am I (cliche as it sounds!) So I really just wanted to reflect that in the design and give it a more sleek finish. I also wanted it to have an instant impact with wonderful photography from Lemontree Photography – from our most recent collaboration (hopefully the first of many) and have an interactive element with my bridal makeup video all prominent. My client is always at the forefront of my thinking so I just wanted something relaxed and easy.
In the pipeline is an update of my logo design, which I am taking my time with to get right and many more photoshoots with my good friend Az of Lemontree Photography x
