Makeup Artist at the The Old England Hotel in Bowness

Serena, is just one stunning bride and I loved being her Makeup Artist at the The Old England Hotel in Bowness.

She was blessed with a gorgeous warm day in June.

Serena wore mainly Charlotte Tilbury and Mac Cosmetics.

I primed her skin with Serena’s own primer and foundation, which I am always happy to do. Sometimes people are embarrassed to ask, but I am more than happy to use your own products, especially if you love them and know they work for your skin type and tone.

I then used a Mac paint pot to prime the eye area, this makes the eye shadow stay on all day (and night), followed by dark brown shadows, a Stila waterproof liquid liner and of course waterproof mascara.

Serena chose (well I recommended and she agreed!) one of my favourite bridal lipstick shades ever, it’s called BRAVE by Mac, my other it SYRUP by Mac. BRAVE is matt so stays on super long, and the shade suits almost everyone and just seems to suit a bridal look. The makeup was set with Mac Setting Powder and then Mac Setting Spray.

I think the two key things people expect from my work is a flawless look in pictures and makeup that will last on the day.
