Its always a pleasure to work on a sister and get invited back to the family to work on a second sister 🙂
Introducing my beautiful bride – Jennifer whom I met when I worked on her elder sister – Sandra’s wedding 2 years ago. You can view my post on the wedding here….
No trial booked as she trusted me after my work on her sister.
On Jennifer’s wedding day I arrived at her prep location at the Selsdon Park hotel, Croydon. Did my set up while the hairstylist – Avos Hair finished off prep on the hair.
I prepped her skin by cleansing with Garnier micellar water and hydrating with a pea sized amount of Embryolisse lait cream. This was massaged into her skin using my fingers.
While I let the creme sink into her skin, I groomed and shaped her brows using MAC brow pencil in spiked.
Jennifer wanted nothing gold on her eyes but something romantic without going over board. MAC paint pot in Constructivist was my eye base to aid longevity of the eyeshadow followed by MAC cosmetics eye shadow in Star violet. This was the main colour used which she loved. I then gently smoked it out with a combination of deep browns and a hint of black. This was finished off with a liner and wispy lashes.
I primed the outer perimeters of her face using Smashbox photo finish foundation primer and Becca poreless priming perfecter used only on her t-zones.
Foundation used was Lancome Teint Idole Ultra in 11 and LA Girl pro concealer in Fawn. This was set using both RCMA no colour loose powder and MAC studio fix foundation in NC50 for a bit more coverage under the eyes. The rest of the face was set with just MAC blot powder in dark.
Jennifer loves blushes so I lit up her face using MAC blush in Dollymix and Bobbi brown shimmer brick in bronze for that extra glow. Already blessed with killer cheekbones, Jennifer didn’t need any contouring. I just warmed up the outer perimeters of her face with MAC mineralize skin finish in Dark deepest.
To finish up the look I firstly defined the outer edges of her lips then used one of my favourite lip combo’s – MAC lipsticks in both Please me and Lovelorn. No gloss applied.
My bride was glowing! Loved her dress!
Thank you so much for the booking Jennifer. Wishing you a blessed marriage.
