Sorry I haven’t posted in ages. I don’t know where the time is going?
‘Wedding Season’ is fast approaching, and as a Wedding Makeup Artist in Bowness it seems I am jam packed with Bridal Makeup Trials.
A trial is when my ‘bride to be’ comes to have a chat and practise run before the big day. Not everyone opts for this as they simply don’t have time, but I would say 90% of my brides do.
Trials with Makeup by Polly, Wedding Makeup Artist in Bowness
Having a trial means I know exactly what you want on the big day, and you know exactly what you are going to get. It makes the wedding morning relaxed and easy as we have met, so are at ease and you can relax knowing you were happy at the trial.
At the trial itself you are welcome to bring some pictures of what you like in terms of makeup. It gives me a good starting point on colours and how strong or natural to go. Also the name TRIAL means we can try different things. Ultimately by the end of it, I want you to still look like you, just the best version of you. I might think some black eyeliner looks fab, but if it just isn’t you then let’s not try that. You need to feel as comfortable and confident as possible.
Here are some phone snaps (excuse poor quality) of some #bridestobe2017 who have had their trials in the past couple of weeks.

Roxanne, her sisters and bridesmaids were such a lovely and lively bunch, considering we had a very early start for her wedding at Abbey House Barrow. Roxanne has kindly just sent me these pics from her wedding in June, earlier this year.
All the bridal party opted for airbase, the airbrush makeup system – where the foundation is applied with a small airgun. It goes on as a fine mist, all my brides say it feels like air is being blown on their face and they can’t believe it when they see makeup there. My favourite things about using airbrush for weddings are:
You apply it in layers, so you can go as light and natural or as heavy and full coverage as you want.
It’s silicone based, which means it goes on and stays on! Perfect for weddings as it can be a long day and you want your makeup to last. Also great on hot days, as with some foundations the heat can make makeup slide off.
At the end of the day makeup is all about your preference, there is no right or wrongs. (Ok so there are a few wrongs) My point is, I will work with you to make you happy, if that means super natural makeup or a heavy smokey eye, I will suggest and offer input if you like.
Ultimately I will listen and ensure you look and most importantly feel the best and most confident person you can. For some that means extra lashes and lots of blusher, and for others it’s a slick of tinted moisturiser and lip gloss. What ever type of bride you are we will work together to make you look absolutely fabulous!
Nichole was such a fun bride at her wedding which took place at Broadoaks Country House in Troutbeck. They have recently installed a gorgeous lodge on the grounds which was the location of where the bride and her party were getting ready. The lodge is amazing with 2 hot-tubs, one inside and and one outside. The lounge area has been designed with a wedding morning in mind, as there is an enormous mirror on the back wall where there was plenty of room for me the makeup artist and the hairdresser to work our magic.
At Nichole’s trial she was a glasses wearer, and as I recently got mine lasered I was raving about it which inspired her to get lasered, so on the wedding morning I was greeted with a perfectly sighted bride all because I had given her the boost to get it done!
Nichole opted to try the Airbrush Wedding Makeup at her trial and loved the results. Good coverage, with a flawless finish and she was impressed with how long it had lasted. I think that’s the best thing, it lasts 12-24hours compared to traditional foundations.

Excuse the lack of professional photos as these were just taken on my phone. These lovely ladies were bridesmaids at a wedding I was makeup artist at, in Milthorpe yesterday. I always want to do before and after pics, but normally forget with all the wedding day excitement, however yesterday was a rare occasion when I remembered!
Both girls are stunning either with or without makeup, but you can see from these pictures that you don’t have to do anything too drastic and the difference it makes.
They both chose to have Airbrush Wedding Makeup, which is when the foundation is applied using an airgun. You can go as natural or as heavy as you like by applying more layers. I like to use it as it offers a flawless base, and will last all day long as it is silicone based.

Lisa McKean and her family were such a lovely bunch. So friendly and a very fun atmosphere to work in.
Lisa got ready for her wedding at The Punchbowl in Crosthwaite and then celebrated her reception at Broadoaks in Troutbeck. Both beautiful venues.
Her photographer was www.tireedawson.co.uk, I simply love her work. So much so, my sister has booked her for her own wedding in October!
The bride, Lisa suffers from oily skin, which was great to know as her Wedding Makeup Artist. I used some special oil control lotion and she opted for airbrush makeup to give her flawless skin and cover any spot acne scarring and breakouts. Lisa all chose to have a gentle smokey eye and natural individual false lashes to help make her eyes stand out.
