I was contacted by a lovely lady called Priscilla enquiring about my services for her friend – Ijeoma. Without a consultation I was booked for the wedding based on my body of work. I was also booked to stay the day with the bride.
On the wedding day, I arrived at The Premier Inn Hotel, Edmonton and set up to begin with her mother while the Talented hairstylist – Chrissy Bales prepped the bride’s hair.
When Ijeoma’s hair was done, I swiftly began work. Her skin was relatively dry so I spritzed over her face – MAC Fix+ spray and using my fingers, massaged in Embryolisse Lait-Creme concentrate. A little goes a long way and you can feel the skin beginning to soften. Love it!
Her brows were also very scarce so I filled in using gentle strokes – MAC brow pencil in spiked. I then brushed in MAC eyeshadow in swiss chocolate and finished off with a clear brow gel to keep the hairs in place.
On her eyes I began with my favourite base, MAC paintpot in Soft ochre and using a mix of MAC eyeshadows in Twinks, Carbon, Embark, Bronze and Swiss chocolate, I created a soft wash of colour that looked gorgeous against her skin. This was finished off with some liner and her own lashes.
Using a damp beauty blender sponge, I applied Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24hrs Foundation in a mix of 13 and 14. I concealed any blemishes and highlighted under her eyes using Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin enhancer in 12 and 13. Due to the dry nature of her skin I was very careful with the use of powders, I substituted my normal setting powder with MAC Mineralize skin finish in both Dark and Deep Dark which I applied using a big fluffy brush.
Blush used was a mix of MAC Fever and Dollymix. A Beautiful Golden sheen was added to her skin using MAC extra dimension skin finish in Shaft of Gold.
On the lips, I started with NYX slim pencil in Dark brown, applied MAC lipstick in Peachstock and MAC Vampify gloss in Spanking Haute.
Ijeoma was incredibly happy with her look and she looked absolutely stunning in her beautiful Gown!
Many thanks for trusting me and using my services. Wishing you a beautiful Married life 🙂
