Summer has officially begun! June kick-started the season with a flurry of beautiful brides, bridesmaid's and mother of the bride's. From a 'no make-up' make-up for Alison in Bicester, to a glamorous smokey eye for Kirsty after her Las Vegas Wedding, with a myriad of beautiful looks in between. My wedding's have had me flying across Warwickshire and Worcestershire visiting plenty of stunning venues this month including Shustoke Barns, Ashton Lodge, Warwick House and even The RSC Theatre! I've also been lucky enough to receive some beautiful cards and chocolates from some very thoughtful brides, so thank you!
I also made-over the wonderful Alice for her 'surprise' 40th birthday party in Warwick. She had accidentally discovered her lovely husband was planning a surprise party and wanted to show up in style! We went for a glamorous party look using Eyelure false eyelashes, Nars Copacabana Multiple to highlight and created a bold red lip courtesy of MAC's Russian Red. Her reaction when she looked in the mirror afterwards was so special and she's already booked in to have a make-up lesson with me next month!
A new kit-addition that deserves a mention this month for rescuing my oily-skinned clients is 'Becca's Ever-Matte Priming Perfector'. This fantastic primer eliminates excess oil for mattified skin that lasts up to 12 hours, crucial for those long wedding days! It extends the wear of make-up whilst simultaneously minimising the appearance of pores which, is a common concern I often come up against. I am a big fan of Becca products in general and also carry their Shimmering Skin Perfector's and Beach Tint in my kit.
This month, I even managed to squeeze in a few days away for myself in between appointments (with work e-mails replied to whilst I was there of course, not exactly a chore with this view!) I well and truly recharged my batteries ready for a busy summer ahead! Plenty of last-minute Prom bookings have come in this month so I'm looking forward to beautifying girls for their big night throughout June and July. I'm also looking forward to an exciting styled shoot with some incredible local wedding suppliers. See the results and behind-the-scenes images on my Facebook and Instagram pages soon. Thanks for reading and I hope you all enjoy your Summer!
