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!
