Dami’s Wedding

Firstly to everyone who always ask about my hair, this is the lady behind it – Dami 🙂 She’s the CEO of St Claireshair. Majority of the hair I own is by Dami. She is such a lovely lady and a joy to always work with on her shoots.

When she spoke to me about her wedding I decided to gift my services to her which was a huge delight to her 🙂

On her wedding day I arrived at her prep location, did my set up and started after her hair was prepped by Hair by Abike.

Dami has combination skin but with a very oily T-zone. Her skin was cleansed using Garnier micellar water and hydrated with only MAC fix + spay.

Her brows were filled using Anastasia Beverley Hills brow definer in chocolate. On her eyes I used sorely Violet voss holy grail eye palette and some glam mink lashes.

On her skin I applied a pea sized amount of Embryolisse lait cream all over her face followed by Becca Ever matte primer on only the T-zones. Foundation used – Armani Luminous Silk foundation followed by Kevyn Aucoin The etherealist concealer. This was set using Laura Mercier loose setting powder in Translucent followed by a mix of MAC studio fix powder in NC45/50.
