Verity’s wedding : The Great Tythe Barn, 22 August 2014

I was really looking forward to Verity’s wedding day. When we met for her trial, she told me all about her wedding plans, and everything sounded beautiful! She was very clear at her trial that she wanted smoky eyes on her wedding day, as she usually defined her eyes well on a day-to-day basis and didn’t want to look too different on her wedding day. Many brides prefer a ‘natural’ look, so it was lovely to be able to do something slightly heavier and more glamourous with Verity’s bridal makeup.

Once I had completed Verity’s eye makeup using a combination of MAC and Dior grey and black eyeshadows, lots of MAC Smolder eyeliner and Revlon false lashes, her skin was perfected to create a flawless base using Dior Forever Skin foundation. I then set her base makeup with Bobbi Brown sheer loose powder, added a touch of bronzer to give her skin a lovely glow, and finished with a soft pink lipstick by MAC.
