First of all, Congratulations to my sister Katrina and her new husband Brian. They were married on 3rd October this year and everything was great…
…especially the bridal parties make-up. By the way, did I mention that I did the make-up for the bridal party??Exciting!!
Katrina agreed to let me do her make-up for her wedding, so when I attended a 1-day make-up course at Glasgow I used Katrina as my model and practiced her special look. I also practiced again during a “practice party” at her house the week before the wedding.
The look was a nice, fresh, simple look with various shades of brown,rosy cheeks and a nice pink lip. I used the same colours for the bridesmaids too (including myself). The foundation was light, the lashes were long, the colours were blended and the lip-gloss was in my bag all day!
Katrina’s Make-up: Brightening corrector under eyes. Foundation to even out skin tone. Powder to set foundation. Light pink over eyelid and up to brow. Dark brown into crease, blended towards brow and out of corner of eye. Spot of white eye shadow to inner corner of eyelid blended aline lashline. Black maascara on top and bottom lashes. Light brown blush along cheek bones. Pop of pink blush on apples of cheeks, blended up along cheek bones. Pale pink lip-gloss on lips.
Simonne’s Make-up: Brightening corrector under eyes. Foundation on forehead, nose and cheeks, blended towards hairline and neck. Powder to set foundation and prevent too much shine. Light pink over eyelid to crease. Darker pink along crease, blended towards lashline and towards brow. Black mascara on top and bottom lashes. Pop of pink blush on apples of cheeks, blended along cheek bones. Pale pink lip-gloss.
My Make-up: Brightening corrector under eyes. Foundation to even out skin tone. Powder to set foundation. Light Pink over lid up to brow. Dark brown along crease, blended out towards temples. Black mascara on top and bottom lashes. Bronzer along cheek bones (been away and still had a bit of a tan ;-)! ). Pink blush on top of bronzer (along cheek bones). Pale pink lip gloss.
Alexandra’s Make-up: Powder to prevent too much shine. Light pink across eyelid to crease. A little black mascara on top lashes (would have prefered to use clear but didn’t have one!). Pink blush lightly brushed along cheek bones. Pale pink lip-gloss.
Mia’s Make-up: Pale pink lip-gloss and pretend blusher (she’s 3 and just needed to be amused during all the pre-wedding stress).
All-in-all I think I did well for my first wedding
Also, I have to mention that I used BeautyUK eyeshadows and was really impressed. They lasted ALL day (a good 10 hours!) and the little set I have has a good mix of 10 compatable colours. Not bad for £3.42 from Superdrug!
