“London Makeup Artist Nadine and London Hair stylist Bethany at Blush were absolute stars on the wedding morning, not only making everyone look and feel beautiful but helping to keep everyone calm and happy on a morning I could imagine could get quite stressful sometimes. They managed to turn my tiny sitting room into a very efficient and comfortable salon for a very large, loud and excitable bridal party for our bridal hair and makeup. I couldn’t have asked for more, they got the day off to the perfect start, thank you!!!” Felicity (wedding 29th December 2012) Blush review and “thank you”

To create a vintage inspired bridal makeup look the combination of a classic red lip and silky glossy hair, either up in a chignon or down with a gorgeous blow dry, is always a great combination for a winter wedding. Pale winter skin shows off a red lip and nails perfectly. Think Grace Kelly or Rita Hayworth for vintage siren inspiration. Here I used YSL lips in Red Muse and Chantecaille Alabaster Future Skin which is the lightest purest Alabaster for pale yellow skin tones. Forget lip liner, this is a modern red lip on a vintage makeup look. It needs to be wearable and still look great when it’s not fresh but a bit lived in.
Take inspiration from the hair and makeup of the on screen sirens of yesteryear, but do not be too literal or it can look a bit “try hard” A red lip and strong eye makeup is great for on screen but for most of us it can be too OTT. Try leaving out the thick eyeliner and false lashes with a red lip and go bare on lids with just a hint of contouring using Bobbi Brown Nude on Nude palette and a subtle black line using Mac Black Track liner. Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara will give volume without smudging.
Oh to have the beautiful skin and full lips of my Bride today!
London Makeup Artist Blush recommends how to get the full lip look for your wedding day, by using Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation in Alabaster and Clarins Nude lipstick brought out the best of both for her. Lucie you looked beautiful. Congratulations!!
