With all this horrible, cold, wet, windy Edinburgh weather around I thought today was the day to go back to a beautifully sunny day in May 2015. I spent a really lovely morning with Alex and her party at her parents house in central Edinburgh.

Alex and Hugo had gone for mixed vintage feel for the wedding with 30’s inspired dress and 60’s inspired décor so for her makeup Alex felt a modern vintage feel would work well. For foundation I used one of my hero products, Face Atelier. It gives a wonderful look to the skin, not too glowing, just the right amount of radiance, so works well for that vintage feel, with out being too flat. Her eyes were very neutral, just a bit of definition and a black liquid line to give that vintage feel. I used a very soft orange red on the lips which is a nod to vintage but softer and we felt more modern. The colour I used is one that I love for this exact look. In fact it is just a lip liner from Kiko – Strawberry Red 707 – and I pop a natural lipbalm over the top.

Hair was by the fantastically wonderful Keith Marshall

The photographer Lisa Devine took the most amazing photos so here it the link to the album on her site. Just stunning!

Eilidh – Longniddry, East Lothian Wedding – Bridal Makeup Artist Edinburgh

Like many of the brides who approach me to do their wedding, Eilidh told me that she didn’t really wear makeup on a day to day basis and didn’t really know what she wanted. In these occasions I tell my brides we will keep the makeup very soft and naturally radiant so that they do not feel too different from normal.  My brides should look effortlessly beautiful and the makeup should never shout.

I was recently remind of this image by Dom at Duke photography, who took the image, while we were at a recent wedding showcase at the wonderful Carlowrie Castle. We shot it a while ago but I don’t think I have ever blogged it so am doing so now. It is such a wonderful image that captures the vintage feel of ‘Flm Noir’ perfectly. Is this a look you are considering for your wedding?

Such a lovely morning with Laura and her ladies at Prestonfield House in May last year. There was a modern vintage feel to the wedding and that is what she wanted for the makeup and I think she looks stunning with her glowing complexion and soft warm red lips.

I met Lynne when I was recommended to her by her sister-in-law Gemma, who’s wedding I had done about a year before. Its always really lovely to get recommendations and follow up on brides.  Gemma was one of Lynne’s  bridesmaids so we had a good old natter and catch up as I did her makeup.  I had such a lovely  morning making up Lynne, her maids and her Mum ! It’s such a delight when everyone feels so comfortable with you, and you them, that you  are fully accepted into the morning as just one of the family. Feel so privileged to have the job I do.
