Basic Bridal Makeup & Hair

IMG_6750 copy

 My friend Carolyn is getting married in a couple of months, we had a go at her wedding makeup before (here) with drugstore only products and much as I loved her glow the eyes were a little heavy and many of you suggested I use higher end products given that it’s her special day – consider me stunned, haha. So this time I mixed in some more expensive brands and I’m really happy with how it turned out, natural but polished. You can see what I used below and the application video at the end of the post, I also threw in a little bit of hair for those totally stuck for ideas,I just curled it and brushed it out with my fingers for a bit of undone texture..
