Leah’s Wedding

Leah first got in contact early 2017. I was eventually booked without requiring a trial. We did do a trial closer to the wedding to finalise her looks.

Her wedding was held at Froyle park estate, Alton. Hair was by Papachichistyle.

Leah has normal to almost dry skin so I made sure after cleansing I moisturised using Embryolisse lait cream.

Her brows were filled in using Anastasia Beverley Hills brow definer in chocolate and combed through using MAC brow gel in show off.

I then primed her eyelids using MAC paint pot in Laying low. Main eyeshadows used – Anastasia Beverley hills eyeshadow in Pink Champagne and Violet Voss holy grail eyeshadows in Ploof and cool beans. I avoided using any dark shade as Leah did not want any dark eyeshadows on her eyes aside the eyeliner. The look was finished off with glam mink lashes.

To prep the skin I used Smashbox photo finish foundation primer. MAC orange corrector was then used on any areas with pigmentation.

Bride wanted her own foundation used – Makeup For Ever HD foundation stick. I can’t remember the exact shade used unfortunately…. Under eye concealer used was NARS ginger set with Laura Mercier loose setting powder in Translucent. This was also used sparingly around her face with a large fluffy brush.

To add definition to her face I used Smashbox contour kit in Deep. I then highlighted using Becca shimmering skin perfector in opal followed by MAC blush in peachy keen.

On her lips I defined around the edges using MAC lip liner in Cork followed by MAC lipstick in Lovelorn and lipgloss in dreamy.

Leah was a sight in her custom made Alonuko ball gown! So beautiful! Thanks Leah for the booking.
