I thought I’d mix things up and offer a 'how to' on our editorial look. Do you often flick through magazines and think, 'Oh that’s beautiful' but in the back of your mind you're thinking, 'I don't know how to do that'? Well here I am to share some ideas on how to create a simple yet alluring look. This may be a starting point for your wedding makeup or perhaps the catalyst to a departure from your regular routine. It is a guide to inspire and introduce you to products and ideas, not to dictate what you must do. If I can introduce you to one idea that in some way guides you to success... that is my success.
Sometimes the most simple change or an introduction to a seemingly basic product can make a big difference.
Don’t be afraid to try something new, as I have written in the past it’s makeup not a tattoo. My style is light handed and I like to see skin. That said it takes time and practise. This 'how to' is for a simple, fresh look so don’t be afraid to add or subtract for your wedding day.
You may be using a makeup artist for your wedding. It can often be a challenge to communicate what look or style you're after. There are always new terms and techniques so arm yourself with one great thing, knowledge. If you can narrow down some ideas and find the key products used, seek them out and try them. Alternatively when you have your trial, chat to your artist and make them aware of where your head is at with your intended look. They may need to top up their kit or find some of your new favourite products. They will of course have their go to products and this is where you can really enjoy the collaborative aspect of your makeup journey. Often things you learn throughout his process will stay with you and may even help create what could be your future signature look.
So arm your good self with some inspo, a few key products and create. Grab the girls and make it an event or pour yourself a glass and have some quality 'me' time.
