Busy day today starting at Studley Castle to Tammy and Russells fairly unconventional wedding. I was greeted by Tammy at the door whilst Russell was just getting out of bed. Only the second couple Ive known be together on the morning of the wedding. Tammys friend Jo was there who was going to be walking her down the aisle. Tammy wanted a relaxed bo-ho style hair do which was loose curls with extensions and a waterfall braid. Simple flowers were weaved into the plait to create her look. Jo wanted her fascinator built into the style so chose a half up, half down curly style which incorporated the style. Both girls were open to makeup styles, they just wanted to be flawless. So Tammy had a gentle smokey eye with some individual false lashes and a nude Tropic gloss and Tropic lip liner. Jo had grey eyeshadows and red lips which worked well with her dark hair and red dress she was planning to wear. Tammys white Vans and green laces will help her enjoy the salsa lesson they have planned later for their guests.
This afternoon was onto Coombe Abbey to meet Karen and Adele, Karens niece. Karen was very worried about how she was going to look today because she lives in London and we have only spoken on Skype so no trial. She is 50 and concerned that she is to old to look nice and never wears dresses. She had a simple bob style hair and a diamante side band. Simple and elegant. Her makeup needed to be natural but flawless so we used the airbrush to give her super smooth skin with some bronze to warm her up and blush to give her a beautiful bridal glow. Her eyes were very gently made smokey using creams and greys. Her fab eyelashes didn’t need much work and she was convinced she would be crying a lot so a waterproof mascara was best. I used Tropics Soft Focus finishing powder which is a must have for brides. It can be used throughout the day to remove any shininess without caking up the face with powder.
Adele had a purple smokey eye and pink lips. She was concerned about covering some spots she had recently come out in but the airbrush is perfect for covering imperfections on the skin.
I absolutely love my job. It gives me so much satisfaction to be able to help people like Karen feel good about themselves and its been a great day. Jessicas wedding tomorrow.
