Here are a few photo's from the gorgeous wedding I did the makeup for in Wales. I stayed in the hotel the night before, as it was about 4 hours from my house, and had such a lovely morning with them all. We got the opportunity to get to know each other and have a good old gossip and lots of fun. I did the makeup for the bride, four bridesmaids, two flower girls and a guest.

I had already done the wedding makeup for Kate's sister Rebecca  about 4 years ago, who was one of her bridesmaids.

For Kate's flowers girls the mums wanted a tiny bit of makeup so they felt involved and special, so I used a small amount of blush and a tinted lip conditioner.

The makeup I used on myself and a mini review of a few of my favorite Bourjois products-

 

Face-

MAC- Prep and Prime skin- As you can tell if you have read my previous posts I always use a primer before applying foundation as it gets your makeup to last on your skin, and helps with a smooth application of  foundation.

HEALTHY MIX SERUM FOUNDATION- 16 hour radiance booster- A while ago they had sent me Healthy mix serum which I love for a natural finish foundation. Even though it is a sheer foundation it still covers redness, it has a natural satin finish that mimics the look of radiant skin, not too shiny not too matt.

MAC- Studio finish concealer- I have spot prone skin so need to go back with concealer in target areas, this MAC concealer is a  full coverage.

HEALTHY BALANCE UNIFYING POWDER- This powder is ultra fine so sets the foundation without looking powdery and dry.

 

Eyes-

SMOKY EYES TRIO EYESHADOW- I used the three eye shadows from the 13 brun wood pallet, I've got to say I am picky with eyeshadows but these were easy to blend and did have a good colour pay off. I was a fan of this colour combination  this palette comes with a olive green, warm red and black, these colours suit a lot of people but especially green eyes as the red in the brown will make green eyes look brighter.

LITTLE ROUND POT INTENSE EYESHADOW- I went back into the outer crease of my eye with the #10 black mineral based eyeshadow as you only need a small amount to create drama.

VOLUME CLUBBING BLACK JACK MASCARA- This mascara is great if you like volume, you can really build up your lashes to create drama.

QUEEN ATTITUDE KHÔL KAJAL- I used this all around my eye and in my waterline, it does last well in the waterline.

 

Lips-

MAC- Oak lip pencil, To the future pro longwear lipstick & clear lipglass.

 

My ProChart using LITTLE ROUND POT INTENSE EYESHADOW in #4

 

Before a photoshoot with a designer I designed this ProChart using LITTLE ROUND POT INTENSE EYESHADOW in #4 & QUEEN ATTITUDE KHÔL KAJAL.
