i’ve defiantly not blogged in a while , but if you count instagram as a blog then i defiantly have , does anyone else think social media is a bit to much right now , its so easy to take over your day and as a small business trying to be seen and generate new customers i need to be active. but i have put a reminder on my phone to try and limit my usage so if you think i am being quite on there am just trying to balance life , 2019 has been such a great year for me i’ve been kept very busy by my lovely brides ( thank you ) and i have created a space for my brides to visit for there trial. In the summer i took on a assistant to help me on wk end weddings , she is still learning (we can all never stop learning hey )and i am also training her to work along side me , her name is india and at the moment she is just helping me and watching , if you book a second artist with me for your large bridal party , its not my assistant who is booked its some one of the same skill set as my self. i may get india to write a blog for me on here so you can get to know her as well. Here’s what’s still to come for 2019….. ( along side a/w weddings )

I would say foundation is something very personal and also how you want to see your skin look on your big day. I always like to know what my brides use for there foundation , over the years I have come across a lot of different foundations, BB creams , tinted moisturisers brands and I have my favourites as do you. I will always use your base if it’s something you love. What you have to remember is when you apply your base it will look different to how I apply it due to what brushes I use and my attention to detail. You can always ask for more or less after your trial , it’s only make up and that’s the whole point of a trial to adjust it to your personal preferences.
What you will find In my kit ……….
Nars sheer glow - it’s not sheer that’s for sure I would say it’s medium to full depending on application but it’s got a glow and it’s a nice finish , looks like you have make up on but will see you into the night while dancing with your bride tribe or groom 😜
Charlotte Tilbury light wonder - this is a lighter coverage and it has more of a glow then nars sheer glow , I really like this because Its not too heavy and it looks expensive.
Mac - studio fix this is one that will cover all and last all night for that bride who likes a full coverage.
Mac face and body - this is water based and I love to use this on the mother of the bride , it’s light and give you a glow just enough for a mum , for brides who don’t want a lot I would also use this but mixed with a concealer for extra stability and lasting power.
Nars tinted moisturiser , it’s got good coverage for a tinted moisturiser so in some cases this is plenty
L’Oréal true match - this is a good all rounder I know it’s only ‘drug store’ but it’s actually really nice and expensive looking , it’s very similar to Armani which is very popular so I like to have this in my kit and the colour range is great.
Laura Mercier photo finish foundation. - this is new to my kit and I think it’s going to be a firm fav it’s luxary and the right amount of coverage in my eyes. It’s got a lovely glow and seems to stay well . I am just learning about the colours and once I get my head around them I will buy some more.
Illasmasqua skin base - this is medium buildable coverage. its got a natural finish to it and will conceal your imperfections and give you a smooth overall look.
I probably have a few more hidden in there but these are my most used. That’s just foundations , concealers are a whole other world.
It takes time to learn about the colours of a new foundation brand , some have pink undertones and some have yellow so it’s good to see what you use most and what colours are your favourite and then get a few and mix them to find the best match for each client . I tend to use 2-3 colours on one face , I believe we are not one colour across are face so I like to make your skin look as natural as possible by mixing a few colours .
On your trial I may try a foundation and feel like on your wedding day you may benefit from a different one and by all means if you don’t like the look of your foundation just say , it’s only make up and can easily be changed on the wedding day.
Ask your self how you like to see your skin look
Do you like a glow across your skin ?
Do you like a matte finish ?
Do you like to see your fresckles ( if your lucky enough to have any that is )
Do you like a full coverage ?
Do you like to not see much make up but know you have something on to even out your skin tone?
Do you touch your face a lot ?
Do you get sweaty ?
I can ask a million questions and a lot of the time brides don’t know the answers but if you have any specific make up habits just tell me and I can learn how you like to see your self . 😊
Before your foundation I will always prep your skin, have a look and feel and do what I think will help your make up stay in place . I like to use a organic natural moisturiser and then a primer. Lip scrub if needed and always a lip balm. The is Something you can do before the big day and that is to look after your skin , make sure you have a good skin care routine in place and drink plenty of water it really does make a difference to your skin type. A good diet and exercise can also have a massive effect on are skin.
I hope you got a little insight into what you might find if you book me for your wedding day/trial.
Until next time !!!
