Ibiyinka’s Destination Wedding (Malta)

Ibiyinka my stunning US based Bride. Her bridesmaids first got in contact with me towards the end of last year for quotes before she got in contact to finally book beginning of 2018.

No trial was required and I was booked for the bride, her mum and sister.

I arrived in Malta a day before the wedding, didn’t get the chance to explore the city as I was already tired out from a booking the day before and needed to really rest in time for the wedding.

On the big day I woke up to a glorious sunny day. Had breakfast and made my way to the bride’s mum to start work. This was followed by working on the brides sister then the bride.

Yinka has very cute freckles all over her face but she wanted them covered.

I started with my usual cleansing and hydrating routine. For destination weddings I love incorporating more illuminators into the skin routine as this looks amazing in the sun. For natural radiance I love using Charlotte Tilbury’s Wonder glow.

Her brows were filled in using MAC brow pencil in spiked.

Yinka has small and beautiful eyes, she was worried the eye makeup wouldn’t stand out but I told her to trust me 😉

Eyeshadows used – MAC shadows in woodwinked, texture, swiss chocolate and embark, followed with Ingot gel liner in 77 and natural mink lashes.

I prepped her t-zones with Becca ever matte primer. Foundation used was NARS all day luminous weightless foundation in a mix of Cadiz and Macao. To conceal and highlight under her eyes I used Kevyn Aucoin etherealist super natural concealer which was set with Laura mercier translucent powder. This was also used to set the rest of her face.

To keep her skin looking radiant, I used my fingers to apply MAC lustre drops in Sun rush to the areas on her face that catches the light followed by MAC extra dimension highlight in whisper of gilt. Blush used was NARS orgasm.

Yinka’s look was finished off with NYX slim pencil in dark brown followed by Delilah cosmetics lipstick in honesty. This was finished with MAC lipgloss in Nymphette.

My bride was a sight in her dress after her hair was completed by Elizabeth (touchedbeautyservices) for Charishair.
