Novella was my 1st official Bride of 2015. We had a trial late last year and our consultation session was proof that sometimes a trial is very important especially if you are wanting to try a look outside your comfort zone. During the trial we paired gold toned eyes with purple lips, she’s a huge fan MAC cosmetics Heroine lipstick. She ended up changing the original look for a bold eye and nude lip instead.
Another point to make, Novella doesn’t wear any foundation or Concealer by MAC cosmetics. This is one of many reasons I stock different branded foundations in my kit. We eventually went for one of my favourite Foundations – Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer. This is a multi tasking formula that can be used as a foundation, concealer, highlighter etc I absolutely love it and use it as my personal foundation and concealer.
On the big day I arrived at her hotel – Bexleyheath Marriot Hotel to set up and start on her Chief Bridesmaid while my bride had her hair done by AVOS HAIR .
After her hair was prepped, I began on my bride. I started by cleansing her face and then giving her skin some hydration that instantly made her skin beautifully supple.
On her eyes I did a mix of pinks, burgundy and deep browns . For added drama some strip lashes were added.
Her face was prepped and primed. Then Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer was buffed into her skin. I concealed and highlighted with the same brand in a multitude of shades to give her face definition. This was all set with some Laura Mercier loose powder and MAC Mineralize skin finish in Dark and Deep dark.
The look was completed with a coral/pink shade on the lips subtly defined with a dark brown lip liner.
Absolutely loved the final look.

I received this message the very next day from Novella – ”Hey Joy, Just wanted to say thank you so much for making me look beautiful on my wedding day. May God continue to bless you”
AMEN To that, Thanks for using my services, here’s wishing you a beautiful married life 🙂
