Immortal Muses – bridal edition

 

In aid of National wedding month I thought I would compile a collection of brides throughout history who inspire me. Whether it be fictional or real they are all style icons with their glamourous dresses and spectacular headwear.

Inspiration – Sylvia Ji

My good friend Lisa introduced me to the work of Sylvia Ji. Studying Fine Art I was always drawn to figurative forms of painting.

Sylvia Ji is a young painter who inspires me with her bold use of colour, movement of paint and subject matter.

Sylvia always paints women, some of them being symbolic reflections of herself or portraits of people she knows. The eyes of the subjects always inflect both mystery and soul.

Joseph Young Wedding + Promo Filmmaking, MUA Naomi Mckeever

Joseph Young is an extremely talented videographer, I've had the pleasure of working with on a few occasions.

His work mainly consists of Promos and wedding films, each of them having a polished cinematic style.

I'm really excited because I've managed to book him for my wedding and thought it would be selfish to keep his skills to myself, so to all your brides I would suggest you contact him to capture the magic of your big day.

Here's some examples for his latest work-

My Lesson for Florence Sunnen

 

This week I held a one on one makeup lesson for Florence Sunnen. This was our first session together so we started from the basics.

 

 

We covered how to create flawless skin without using heavy foundation. Contouring, highlighting, soft definition for the eyes and how to make your lips look fuller.

 

Here's a photo of Florence with foundation on, I haven't applied concealer under her eyes as I find it better to conceal after eye shadow to prevent the drop down sticking to the under eye area.

Skin-

  • Massaged in complete comfort cream
  • Fast Response- eye cream
  • Lip conditioner
  • Prep & Prime- skin
  • Face and body- foundation, in N1
  • Select cover-up, in NW20
  • Mineralize skinfinish- in Light
  • Harmony- blush (used as a contour, for more advice see my previous lesson blog)
  • coygirl- blush
  • pearl- cream colour base (highlighter on high plans of her face)

 

Here's a photo of Florence at the end of our lesson.

Eyes-

  • Sublime nature- paint (base for eye shadow to keep it on all day)
  • Vex- eyeshadow
  • Copperplate- Eye shadow
  • Industry- eye liner (soft, water proof)
  • False lash- mascara

 

Brows-

  • Omega- eye shadow ( applied with an angel brush)

 

Lips-

  • Soar- lip liner
  • Patisserie- lipstick

 

Florence was an amazing student really listening to what I was telling her, I'm looking forward to our next lesson where we're going to be more daring as she loves experimenting with her makeup.
