    Wedding Makeup Winter Makeup Tips

    So this time of year plays havoc with our skin. Central heating, wind, rain and cold. Urgh, our poor skin needs a lot of extra TLC to keep it in tip top condition. If you are planning a winter wedding, it is especially important to take care of your face and know which makeup styles suit this time of year.,

    So we have some top wedding makeup winter makeup tips from London College of Fashion trained Hair and Makeup Artist, Susie Boyland. Susie is a London College of Fashion trained Makeup and Hair Artist

    She loves working one-on-one with each of her brides to help them find a wedding day makeup look that’s beautifully true to them.

    As we have already said, our skin can take a real battering over the winter months. Coming in from the cold to a centrally heated house, office or shop can cause your skin to panic. Your makeup needs a great canvas to work on, so as the temperatures drop you need to take extra care of your skin, especially if you’re getting married this winter. Here’s our tips on remaining radiant and glowing:

    Use a gentle exfoliator as part of your beauty routine twice a week. If your skin is becoming sensitive or red, reduce the use to just once a week.

    Use a 50 pence piece sized dollop and smooth gently over your face. Let the particles touch your face gradually. Gently massage into the face, slowly and carefully, and let the scrub do its job. Go for an exfoliator that doesn’t have harsh looking beads in it. Try not to scrub away at your skin in short bursts; this will only cause damage and irritation.

    Moisturize your skin inside and out. Drink lots of water and moisturise your face daily. Opt for a simple water-based moisturiser as this will nourish dry areas, or go for a natural product such as It’s All About the Face Hydrating Face Cream by Pureza Beauty.  

    Lips can really suffer over the colder months, often becoming chapped and flaky. Use a soft, moist toothbrush to gently exfoliate  any dead skin away in in circular motions. Apply a good layer of lip balm to protect and moisturise them every day.

The aim for this look is to be well presented rather than over the top. Think Jennifer Aniston rather than Kim Kardashian! Start with a great foundation designed for a long day like Estee Lauder Doublewear; this will give your skin a flawless base from which to build on.

Use a powder shadow, like MAC’s Shroom, to add a subtle shimmer underneath your eyebrows, the cupids bow of the lip and along the tops of your cheek bones. Remember the key is a natural sleek look -it is easy to end up looking like a painted clown, so build the look up gradually and step back and look carefully between each step.

    Make your eyes the focus of your radiant snow queen look. Create an elegant smoky eye using golds, bronzes and browns with an eye shadow palette like Urban Decay Naked. Keep both your cheek and lip colours similar shades to your natural colourings. A pop of blusher on the apples of your cheeks and a touch of tint or balm to the lips adds a subtle amount of sheen without looking too overdone.

    So there you have it. Look after your skin and keep it subtle ladies 🙂

    Wedding Makeup – Autumn 2014 Beauty Trends

    Today we have a brilliant advice post by top Chelsea based wedding makeup artists Pamela and Andrea, who are taking us through the key looks for the Autumn season. Pamela and Andrea are taking us through 3 key looks so there is something to suit everyone for your big day…

    Fashion week is over and what a corker it has been, especially for us make up fanatics! Over the last 4 weeks in 4 different cities around the world we have been keeping a watchful eye of the latest make up trends to hit the catwalk to report back to you.  Okay, so some of the key looks may be a bit much for your autumn/winter wedding but we are here to interpret them so you can give a subtle nod to this seasons looks as you walk down the ‘catwalk’ aisle.

    LOOK 1 – As always the natural look played its part on the runway especially in London with shows such as Jill Sanders and Stella McCartney. The models were all fresh faced and had a healthy sporty vibe. The colours used to illuminate and shade were in soft nude, lilac and taupe.

    KEY PRODUCTS FOR THIS LOOK ARE: Chantecaille – Real Skin Makeup, Tom Ford Lip Colour – Sable Smoke, Ellis Faas- Light Eye Highlighter in Lilac

    LOOK 2 – There was a large emphasis playing on metallic make-up.  Whether it was silver and gold eye liners shown on the Chanel catwalk to bronze lipstick at Rodarte. Metallic mania is going to be all over the place in the next couple of months which can be hard to wear but if done right can look beautiful. Take inspiration from the Donna Karan and Atluzarra catwalks who did a subtle dusting of glitter eye shadow this is much easier to wear.

    LOOK 3 – LASHES!! A bride to be’s best friend and also a hit at Versace, Rochas and Gucci shows this season. Extra long lashes gave the models a doll like prettiness and would look perfect at any wedding.
