Leeming House Penrith

Faye got married at Leeming House Penrith in August. I love the first picture above, it’s just what you would hope a wedding morning would be. All the girls chatting, getting ready, while the hair and makeup professionals do their thing!

Faye was a relaxed bride and at her trial wanted to be very natural and subtle as she’s not a huge makeup wearer.

However on the day I did one of her bridesmaids first, with a smokey eye (using brown earthy colours) and some extra individual false lashes and Faye decided she wanted to have that too.

I think the phrase ‘smokey eye’ makes people think about the girls from ‘The Only Way is Essex’, however it’s just the name of the technique, you can do it in any colour and as subtle as you wish.

So for Faye with her fair skin and strawberry hair with bright blue eyes I used brown and gold tones, the extra lashes as to look as natural as possible but really make her eyes stand out without being too ‘made up’ don’t you think?

The other thing is, when you have makeup on with jeans and a cotton top, some people can feel quite over the top. But once the princess dress goes on, and the hair is styled and the diamonds are sparkling makeup some people feel they want more makeup.

As I always say, there’s no right or wrong.

The most important thing is for you to feel great, if that means hardly any makeup that you want to do yourself or lots of false lashes applied by mean, it’s fine AS LONG AS YOU ARE HAPPY x

Abbey House Barrow

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:

AIRBRUSH COVERAGE

You apply it in layers, so you can go as light and natural or as heavy and full coverage as you want.

IT LASTS

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!

Wedding Makeup Artist North West – Broadoaks

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.

Mobile Wedding Makeup Artist at Broadoaks

As a MOBILE WEDDING MAKEUP ARTIST I love working at Broadoaks, the location is wonderful, the building is beautiful whether it’s a bright Sunny day, or even if it’s pouring with rain.

There’s always a chilled atmosphere and nothing is too much trouble for the staff.

This wedding was particularly relaxed, and the bride so friendly and bubbly, and easy going.

She has a beautiful bone structure, but did have some redness on her face, so I really wanted to give her a flawless look and make those beautiful eyes and cheekbones stand out.
