“How do you want to feel on you wedding day?” Probably one of the most important questions I ask my clients when we meet for a trial. Every last detail needs to be taken into account to really capture the brides style and personality. The answers I receive vary from very natural, like myself but polished, to all out Hollywood glamour. Which is why I love my job! No two people are the same, have the same style or personality so each wedding I do is a new adventure.The theme we tried to achieve during my test shoot with photographer Paul Cruse was raw, organic, fresh with a hint of glamour. Our model Ellie really suited the look I created for her with her long flowing hair which I wanded and brushed out.

To prep her skin I used one of my favourite skin primers by Laura Mercier. It is a beautiful radiant primer with a golden glow to really let the light bounce off the skin. I buffed MAC studio sculpt foundation over the top using a MAC 130 duo fibre brush to polish the gel texture into the skin. This foundation is full coverage so really makes the skin appear flawless – not hard when your model is as beautiful as Ellie. It has a gorgeous dewy finish so it photographs beautifully. To keep the glow I lightly contoured the skin with MAC mineralize powder to add shape and moisture. I applied MAC blush in tenderling and margin on the apples of the cheeks to create a natural flush. To finish the skin I spritzed Clinique moisture surge face spray.

On Ellie’s eyes I used the Morphe 35N pallette to enhance the socket and highlight the brow bone. I then smudged MAC coffee pencil along the top lash line to add definition. To finish the look I used MAC lip pencil in soar and used fulfilled lipglass over the top to create the perfect rose tone.
