All you need to know about your Bridal Makeup!

How long have I been married?

Beauty isn’t skin deep, it radiates from within, and that’s so true! Bridal makeup isn’t just about your special day, it’s perfecting the look that enhances your natural beauty. Although I’ve been married for 27 years, I still remember my wedding day like it was yesterday! I got married in Kenya, so I did my makeup myself, but things have changed since then! Why wouldn’t you want a professional to make you look truly gorgeous, and take any extra stress away?

Book a trial!

I always advise a bridal makeup trial at least 3 months before your wedding day. It gives us time to address any skin concerns you may have, and to perfect your look. I allow 3 hours for a bridal makeup trial, and that’s usually more than enough time? I find brides have thought about their makeup a lot, and give me ideas as to what they love! Sometimes I have to interpret images to suit the bride, but that’s what a Makeup Artist is for, right? It’s important you look and feel fabulous!

It’s got to last all day!

Bridal makeup is designed to last all day, look beautiful, and photograph well. Natural makeup is perfect for ensuring it lasts all day, and most brides focus on dewy skin and neutral eyeshadows, with a nude lip. After all, who wants colourful smudging after the bride and groom’s first dance?!! A natural bridal makeup look highlights your features, ensuring that your are the best version of yourself on your special day! Click here to see the most popular lip colour for brides!

Consider everything!

Choosing your wedding makeup can be tricky. You need to consider the season, location, venue, dress, colour scheme, and your regular makeup look. There are also lots of different looks to choose from….natural, glam, dramatic, smokey eyes, vintage, and beach are just a few to consider! However, take inspiration from wherever you like, and I will work with you and your ideas to get the look you want. I’ll make it stress free, ensure your look lasts, and it’ll give you some pampering on your special day too!
