When it comes to wedding makeup do’s and don’ts, it is really important to listen to the professionals.

Do find your perfect primer. Every skin type deserves it’s primer match. A primer should balance and prepare your skin for the rest of the makeup.

Do find your ideal foundation. Is it dewy or matte, lightweight or full coverage?

Do make sure that you get your bronzer in the correct shade for you. Some can be very orange and this is not a good look when you are trying to create a natural looking makeup.

Don’t use cheap makeup brands because you are trying to save money, premium brands often far exceed the cheap brands in terms of their quality and application.

Don’t get carried away copying a makeup look that has been modelled by someone who is completely different looking from yourself – it will not look the same.

And don’t apply the makeup yourself if you are unsure or nervous about doing it – just use a professional and you will get a result which far exceeds anything you will be able to achieve when you should be feeling pampered and relaxed on your wedding morning.

For most Brides, wedding eyes are the most important part of their makeup.

I always get asked to enhance my bridal client’s eyes, and there are many ways to draw attention to wedding eyes.

One great way to enhance your eyes is to use an eyeshadow that picks out your eye colour.

The second way to enhance your wedding eyes is to highlight in the inner corner of the eye.

The third way to draw attention to your eyes is to put on lashes that add volume and length. These do not need to be outrageous to draw attention. The more subtle they are, the more that others will think they may be your own luscious lashes. No one needs to know!

Your eyebrows frame your face and so making sure that they are in tip-top shape is of utmost importance when you prepare for a perfect wedding makeup.

I personally always recommend a brow wax and tint on your eyebrows to create a base shape and colour that will form the perfect brow, and then anything more can be added with makeup. It is not a permanent eyebrow service and so you can always go back to your old eyebrows if you do not like the results.

I have trusted Benefit Cosmetics with my eyebrows for years – since working for them in the days where they were in Selfridges, London. They take particular care over your eyebrow arch, and if you think that you have little/no eyebrow to work with, think again, as they can make your brows seem more full and luscious than ever with a clever tint that matches your natural hair colour, which is perfect for a wedding day. I find that the boutiques have the best range of colours for eyebrows as they stock the ashy tones too.

So give it a go, a new eyebrow look will transform your face and once you start, you will never look back.

When it comes to eye shadows, choosing the right makeup colours are key to enhancing your eyes.

If you have blue eyes, the best makeup colours to go for are the peachy, brown or gold, pink or orange tones within eyeshadows.

If you have green eyes, then the best makeup colours will be mauve tones such as plums, purple-browns and pinks.

If you have Hazel eyes, then you can experiment more with all makeup colours as you are likely to suit many of them, try golden brown tones to start and go from there!

For dark brown eyes, try browns, navy blues and greys and even black colours.

Choosing the right makeup colours is essential and your professional makeup artist will help you to find your perfect makeup colours to bring out those beautiful wedding eyes.

What is the holy grail of wedding makeup? The one tip which will keep every bride happy and every groom in awe of their new wife? Be your own beautiful self.

You will be pleased to hear that this does not mean that you must go down the isle with no makeup on, but what it really means is that you can be yourself on your wedding day even with a professional makeup artist’s application.

If you aim to be the most beautiful you that is possible, then your partner will appreciate that more than if you try to be something that you are not. That is my top makeup tip – to embrace and enhance your most beautiful features, show them off to their full by choosing complimentary colours and shapes for your makeup.

Your makeup should make you feel really special, beautiful and mostly, give you the confidence to be yourself.

A wedding trial is primarily for the bride, the purpose of it is so that you are able to hone in on the look that you have been hoping for and adapting it to suit yourself and perfect it.

I am often asked if it is necessary for any others in the bridal party to also book in a wedding trial ahead of the big day itself. The short answer is that it should not really be necessary as long as they come with images of what they want to achieve on the day. When I make an exception to this, is if there is something of particular concern to an individual in the bridal party and that having a wedding trial will iron out this worry.

Whether you have a wedding trial or not, your wedding hair and makeup artist should be able to interpret the look that you want and the best way to succeed is to have clear images and ideas of what you are after.

Wedding makeup artists tend to use a variety of premium makeup brands and I am no different. Rather than favouring one particular brand, I try to find the best products from across each brand to ensure that your makeup is of the best quality and finish.

So many people ask what wedding makeup brand is my favourite and to pick just one or even two would limit me, so to name just some, these are the wedding makeup brands which stand out to me and make my job such a joy…

Charlotte Tilbury is wonderful for foundation, I also love Nip and Fab for it’s slightly more affordable foundation range, and for those who love coverage, I can recommend Nars. As a wedding makeup artist, I use a lot of MAC eyeshadows as their pay-off on the eyes is second-to-none, and I am also currently loving some of the tones that come with the Jaclyn Hill eye palette.

Another wedding makeup brand which should be hailed is Hourglass, I especially adore their powders, as they make skin look flawless and smooth.

I could go on and on, so come and try out all of these luxurious wedding makeup brands at your trial and see for yourself just how powerful wedding makeup can be!

When you are considering your wedding eye makeup, it is good to consider three important things.

Firstly, if you are a glasses wearer you need to decide if you are going to be wearing them on your big day or if you are going to opt for contact lenses. In my experience, if you do not mind doing either, you will get a much clearer wedding eye makeup look if you choose contact lenses. Do make sure you put them in ahead of the wedding eye makeup application. This will ensure that you do not smudge the eye makeup when you are putting the lenses in.

Secondly, consider your eye shape when choosing that all important wedding eye makeup. There are certain techniques that suit differing eye shapes. Take a look on google if you do not know what your eye shape is as you should be able to work it out based on likenesses from descriptions you can see on there. This will then guide you as to what wedding eye makeup will enhance your eyes.

And finally, consider the colours which you are going to choose for your wedding eye makeup. You want the colours to compliment your skin tone, hair colour and eye colour. Getting the wedding eye makeup colour right will transform your look and make your eyes pop.

 

Follow these simple tips and tricks and you should end up with a wonderful wedding eye makeup result.

On your wedding day, you want your lips to look full, smooth and super kissable. It is easy to achieve when you know how, but getting there is not a quick process.

Firstly, invest in a good lip balm. It is good to exfoliate when necessary and then leave the lip balm on to do its work right at the beginning of your wedding day. That way, when your lips come to be worked on they will be super soft and any product will stay on longer and glide on smoothly for the best wedding lips.

Secondly, I tend to use lip liner for two reasons. One is that it will make the lips appear balanced in shape as you can cheat the lip line so that they appear completely symmetrical. And two is that it will help your wedding lipstick to last longer.

Thirdly, use a lipstick, then blot the lip, and then apply a little more wedding lipstick if necessary afterwards. This will allow you to see the colour when it has settled on the lip and stop any shine from overwhelming you and making the colour appear too bright.

Fourth, if you want added shine, why not use a lipgloss to finish off the look. It can look absolutely stunning and will make those wedding lips all the more luxurious on camera.

Fifth, if you are not a lipstick person, you can create a really subtle look by going sparingly with just a little nude lip liner and the smallest touch of lipstick on your wedding pout and this should not budge when you kiss the groom! Still use a lip product where possible as it will look better on camera and will finish off your makeup beautifully.

Wedding make-up artistry is different from other types of makeup application. Wedding make-up artistry takes time to learn. It is only after years of experience having made up many faces and seeing those images come to fruition in the professional wedding pictures that you know what works.

Wearing SPF in your make-up will not make for a good photograph – you will often get a flashback on the camera and it can create that ghostly appearance on the skin that you so often try to avoid.

You will need to wear more make-up than you might think in order for it to read on camera for your wedding. This does not mean that the wedding make-up artistry needs to be done in a larger way on your face or indeed really harshly – but the pigments need to be strong whilst your professional wedding make-up artist maintains smooth finishes.

Wedding make-up artistry is worth the investment. You will not have to lift a finger to do your own wedding make-up – unless you particularly want to do any parts of the make-up yourself. And you will feel relaxed knowing that your wedding make-up is going to last the entire day.
