Bridal Beauty With Betty

Lipstick, powder and paint
Life has been pretty hectic on the work front over the last few months, My make up brushes have been worn to stubs and I should have shares in Ardell false eyelashes!
 The summer is always hectic for wedding and hen party bookings and this year has been my busiest yet.
Lilly and I  have been whizzing up and down the motorway in Fifi the Fiat, with our trusty make up and hair kits sprinkling glamour and beauty all over the place.
Here are a few of my favourite looks from the past few months.

Smokey eyes and pale lips-such a great look

When does a job not feel like a job? when the bride to be, her friends and family are so lovely you secretly want them to be your friends too.
Planning Kat's hair and make up was a total pleasure. With her creamy white skin and fire red hair the possibilities were endless (this girl looks beautiful whatever you do) She decided on smokey grey eyes, porcelain skin and nude lips and the end result was breathtaking. Having originally wanted victory rolls for her hair, Kat and Lilly decided at her second trial that softly pinned up hair with a vaguely 1920's feel worked perfectly with her headpiece and vintage inspired dress.Dramatic eyes and pale lips are one of my favourite looks for a bride and it looks so good on Kat.

Audrey Hepburn Chic

The 1960's is a great era for bridal influences and Gemma looked like a young Audrey Hepburn on her wedding day. 
With a soft beehive, perfectly arched eyebrows and thick winged eyeliner, the hair and make up was a homage to another time but still looked fresh and contemporary with the use of light reflecting foundation and petal pink lipstick.
Gemma's husband to be excelled himself in our eyes by sending her a Mad Men Betty Draper doll as a pre wedding gift-what a guy!

Softly rolled hair for relaxed glamour

Everything about Rachel's wedding was just fabulous. From the amazing leopard print cake she made herself (and was icing the night before) to the personalised converse sneakers she had brought to slip on for later in the day,it was the perfect combination of beautiful design with a quirky home made element.
For her hair and make up Rachel wanted glamour with lashings of eyeliner and vava voom eyelashes softened by a fab pink Bobbi brown lipstick. 
Lilly roller set Rachel's hair before pinning it up in a soft bun at the nape of her neck. Her fringe was left to hang softly around her face perfectly framing those very high cheekbones.

beautiful Jasmin-
I absolutely loved Jasmin from the first moment I met her (and her very cute new baby) a plus size hottie with a love of Terry Pratchett and Adventure time, its fair to say we never stopped gabbing.
Jasmin's dress was fabulous with a purple accent so we decided to add a little bit of purple to her smoky eyeshadow and with her beautiful brown eyes it worked wonderfully. 
Jasmin's make up styling was all about the eyes with plenty of emphasis on them with liquid eyeliner and a smudge of black under the eyes too. Lips were a soft pink shade and Lilly created delicate curls going into a chignon to compliment her delicate tiara.

Emma is such a classic English rose and reminded me so much of Sybil from Downton Abbey, she has a perfect face and amazing features. Myself and Lilly adore a birdcage veil so loved creating Emma's soft roller set hair to compliment the fasinator and frame her face. 
Brides are often scared of wearing red lipstick on their big day even if its their trademark look but as Emma shows it can work beautifully and look just as graceful and soft as a pink lipstick if the eye make up and base is balanced properly.
