This week I’m going to take you through getting ready for a family friend’s wedding from hair to shoes, lets go!
First up was hair, me being me no way was I having the stress of doing it myself so the lovely stylist Maria came to my rescue! I went for a up do with on trend braiding and a few loose pieces.
Usually for an event I would have my makeup done professionally, but unfortunately my usual artist was already fully booked (she’s fab so I understand why!) so it was down to me!
As I was wearing a pink and cream outfit I wanted the makeup to compliment it so decided for a pink/champagne eye with a pink gloss (easier maintance). I started with eyes and to achieve the look I wanted had to use an array of shadows and some blushes! Here’s the shadow list not in order: Makeup Geek – peach smoothie, whimsical, MG Blush- head over heels, romance, Too Faced- Strawberry Bon Bon, Tartelette- caregiver, wanderer, Bobbi Brown blush in 41. For glitter I used Too faced glitter glue as a base with Barry M snowglobe. Liner was brown as softer and L’Oréal infallible finishing with Eyelure Luxe Lashes in Trinket!
On my brows I used Benefit precisely brow in shade 3, ABH clear brow gel and the light shade in sleek contour palette to carve out.
For base I used my trusty old faves! Primer- Too faced hangover, Foundation- Chanel perfection lumiere velvet(50), Concealer- Nars creamy in custard and vanilla, Bake- Laura Mercier loose powder, Powder- Rimmel stay Matte, Contour- NYX powder kit, Bronzer- Nars Laguna, Blush- Makeup Geek Romance, Highlight- ABH x Nicole palette Kitty Kat and day dream, Setting spray- Urban Decay all nighter!
Onto lips: Liner- Charlotte Tilbury pink Venus, NYX butter gloss in vanilla cream pie!
Nails- The Beauty Yard (all about nails blog coming soon!)
Finally it was outfit time! Dress- New look (alterations by The Dressmaker), Jacket- Zara, Shoes- ASOS, Facinator- The Dressmaker!
It was a great day and I had an amazing time!
