Diary of a Makeup Artist

13th -19th September 2010

This week I have the pleasure of doing Claire’s bridal hair and makeup for her black and white themed wedding. I am sure she will enjoy her ride in the limo she left in! (Featured in blog 9th August )

It was Nancy’s wedding too and I really enjoyed creating all the hairstyles for the bridesmaids, as well as creating Nancy’s chosen hair style. Short bobbed hair was given volume, plaits, low buns, curls and half up half down were some of the styles created and I had lots of fun meeting them to.

Two trials also kept me busy this week and I enjoyed meeting Karen. I applied a light grey using Jane Iredales putty and crushed ice. Black individual lashes were added to make them look fuller and bolder. A light blusher was applied to highlight the cheek bones and cinnamon shimmer lipstick complimented the look. Her hair was curled and pinned loosely so it had a soft finish. A comb that Karen had brought was placed to one side of the hair style.

Rebecca and her Sister had a trial for her New Years Eve wedding. She chose a classic up do which crossed over at the back and the hair folded over each section creating an elegant up do. This was complimented with a small comb with small pearls placed in the hair where it crossed over at the back. The make up Rebecca wanted was light natural coverage. The base used was MAC face and body over Laura Mercier foundation primer. The eyes were soft browns to define and open the eye lids and individual lashes were placed on the outer corners just to thicken the lashes and make them look more open. Rebecca sister had bobbed hair, so I blow dried it to give it more volume then using wide barrel tongs I created some flicks. Her make up included a nice bade to give great coverage and to even out the skin tone. Bobbi brown gel eyeliner in black was used to create a well defined eye on both the top and bottom lashes and then smudged to softer finish. This brand of eyeliner is my favourite as dries quickly.
