Having been a makeup artist and hair stylist for 20 years, I've seen some fashions come and go. One thing I have always felt is that a natural looking makeup for your wedding day is always the best way forward. Its really lovely to have a smokey eye makeup or a bold lip colour but sometimes it can look too much together on the wedding day, especially if you are someone who needs a good coverage foundation as well. Its all about getting the balance right.
There are so many beautiful, light reflecting and glow enhancing makeups on the market now. Its lovely to be able to create a light and natural look without using heavy, chalky foundations and powders, which can deaden the appearance of the skin and don't allow the skin's natural radiance to shine through.
I recently purchased this stunning makeup palette from the Space NK store in Bristol. The brand is 'Hourglass' and they have a fantastic range of foundations and powders. This is one of my favourites. The 3 colours are designed to refine the complexion giving an amazing soft-focus finish, which can be used to gently contour the face. I purchased this specifically for bridal makeup and to be used on a variety of skin tones. It's a very fine and subtle finish which gives a little extra luminosity to the skin without making it look shiny, perfect for wedding photography. 'Hourglass' makeup is available from Space NK Stores in Bristol, Bath and nation-wide.
