Project Description

Rock chick Leanne visited me today for a Bridal make-up trial.  We had a great, girly morning talking about our love of music and going to gigs.

As Leanne’s trademark look when going out, is a strong, smoky eye, we decided on using that look for her wedding day.  Paired with minimal blush and peachy, natural lips.

Leanne has great skin so I prepped with Bobbi Brown cleansing oil and Hydrating face tonic and used the Vitamin enriched face base and Hydrating eye cream.

She has great freckles too, (which she hates!), but I insisted we see those through the make-up, as I love that and they are so pretty.

I used a Long-wear foundation and then corrected and concealed underneath the eye area, then lightly powdered down the t-zone.

Brows were kept natural and feathery with just a bit of eyeshadow and brow gel.

Eyes –  I used cream eyeshadows and created a soft, smoky eye and then applied some Red cherry false eyelashes to add more drama.  A Bobbi Brown pencil in Jet was then applied in the waterline.  I then added some water resistant mascara on both top and bottom lashes.

No bronzer was used, as I love the contrast of pale skin and dark hair, a beautiful look.  A cream, nude peach blush was used in Fresh melon and then a shimmer brick in Pink glow along the top of the cheekbones.

Lips were prepped with lip balm then blotted off, a pencil applied all over then a gorgeous natural shade of lip colour in Hibiscus by Bobbi Brown to finish off the look – perfect!
