So over 5 months of planning later, 3 weeks ago was my brothers wedding. In those 5 months, I managed an abysmal 3 blog posts! I thought I would show you a little snapshot of the looks I went for for the wedding weekend.
It was the first time I had my make up professionally done (if anybody lives in East London and is looking for a MUA then feel free to drop me a message - i'll point you in her direction). I was seriously nervous beforehand because I am fussy when it comes to make-up. very fussy. Overall however, I was happy with how the two looks turned out. The only thing I would have changed was a dewier look on the first day. It photographed beautifully but in real life it was just a bit too dry looking for me. The next day I brought that up with the MUA and she addressed that by using MAC strobe liquid (something she never dupes she said).
The next day my clothes were purple so she went for a dark purple smokey eye and lighter lips. Initially the lips were too barbie pink for me so I asked that she add a bit more colour and I was happy with the result. As I have hooded lids I have always found it easier to play up my lips and not do much with my eyes. I basically just lack the skill. However, because the day before I focused on the lips, I wanted to play up the eyes. The purple smokey eyes were made up from a mixture of MAC, kiko (shadows which she used wet) and bellapierre pigments. The MUA was a big fan of the kiko shadows and they looked really pretty so I might look into getting them. Doubt I can get it to look anything like this though.
So there you go. Hopefully from now on, normal blogging will resume. I'm excited to get back into it as it's been pretty much 6 months of barely any blogging. If there is anything in particular you would like to see than drop me a comment.
Till next time...Toodles! :)
