The Purple Sash! – Muobo’s Wedding

Muobo was a bridesmaid at her friend – Yetunde’s wedding some years back. That was how we met 🙂  She contacted me to glam her up for her own big day.

We met up for a trial some weeks back where I had a sneak peek at her wedding dress, gorgeous!! Wasn’t sure at some point if I was looking forward to glamming her up on the day or seeing her in the dress!

On the day I arrived at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, London where I set up and waited for amazing hairstylist – Bunmi of AVOS HAIR to finish.

The bride was all about her lips being the exact shade as the sash on her dress. I had to mix a couple of purple lipsticks to get an exact match. Eyes was a cocktail of pinks, purples and golden bronze to compliment the lips. Bride also wanted perfectly groomed brows and her features contoured/defined.

Muobo definitely knew what she wanted but she was so right as she looked Absolutely Breathtaking when i finished.

I must have driven the photographer mad with my iphone camera as I took a million pictures!  These images went on my instagram page – and was promptly reposted by loads of Wedding Accounts including the popular ‘BellaNaijaWeddings’  page who reposted it twice!  “huge grin”…
