I simply love it when brides send me their wedding photos, because I have often left before she slips into her dress.
I received this picture yesterday, from a beautiful bride of mine from a few weeks ago who got married and held her reception at the impressive Askam Hall in Penrith.
It was my first experience of being a Wedding Makeup artist at Askham Hall. It really is a lovely building, with an amazing feel of history, and as corny as this may sound, it feels like the hall enjoys that it is now used for weddings. I’m all about ‘the feel’ and ‘sixth senses’!
Lisa, wanted a good coverage foundation, and I used Illamasqua skin base with Mac powder to set in her skin tone followed by Illamasqua setting translucent setting powder. Wedding makeup needs staying power, so I used Mac fixing spare, which is like hair spray for your face followed by more setting powder. Her eye makeup was very natural, using Mac brown eye shadows and a Illamasqua brown pencil. This lip colour suits her perfectly and is Mac Syrup, which is one of my favourite bridal lip colours, so much so I am doing my sisters wedding makeup in a month and I think I will be using that colour on her!

Rachel is getting married in May and yesterday was up in the Lake District so booked her hair and wedding makeup trial. She is not a massive makeup wearer and wanted something quite natural and subtle.
Using mainly Mac cosmetics and individual false eye lashes we achieved this look.
I don’t normally remember to take before and after pictures at a trial, but on this one occasion I did!
A wedding makeup trial can be really nerve racking for some brides, who are not used to wearing much makeup. However, the whole idea of the appointment is for me to get to know you, and you to get to know me, so on the wedding day itself everything is calm and relaxed.
There is no set format, some brides show me pictures from the internet or magazines, some have seen some pictures on my website that they like and others have no ideas, so we have a little chat, look at a picture of your dress and simply trust that I have understood the sort of thing you want or that will suit you. I work with you, to make you still look like you, but the best version of you.
