I have just received the most stunning photos from Ali’s wedding day, taken by the talented Emma Moore Photography and had to share them with you all!
The first time I worked with Emma was at Philippa’s wedding where she perfectly captured Philippa and George’s enchanting February wedding; so I knew I was going to be in for a treat when Ali and Eric’s wedding photos landed in my email inbox!!
For Ali’s wedding, I created the makeup for her and her bridesmaids and worked closely with Holly who crafted the beautiful hairstyles for Ali and her bridal party. Ali wanted the most natural, relaxed look possible for her makeup and really only wanted it to enhance her gorgeous features. Ali found me through Gemma Sutton, as I’m a member of her pro team.
How I created the look
To create this look, I prepped Ali’s slightly dry and sensitive skin with MAC’s Fix + followed by Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream. I find that the better the skin is prepped with skincare, the better the makeup will look and last on the skin. I then used Charlotte Tilbury’s wonder glow primer followed by MAC’s Face & Body foundation on Ali’s skin with a touch of concealer under her eyes to give her a glowing, radiant base. I followed this with a cream highlighter and blusher (Hush and Ladyblush both by MAC) on her cheeks to give her a flush of colour.
For Ali’s eye makeup I used a neutral palette of creams and taupes to create a soft warm eye makeup that made her blue eyes pop. I used plenty of mascara to make the most of Ali’s long thick lashes, as well as a soft brown liner in Ali’s lashline to give her eyes added definition. At Ali’s trial, we tried a variety of sheer neutral lipsticks and lip glosses but on the wedding day, Ali wanted to keep her lips bare to keep her makeup looking super soft, fresh and natural.
I loved working with Ali to create this look – she was super chilled and such a pleasure to work with. She looked so radiant and happy on her wedding day and I think the makeup just enhanced her natural beauty.
Until next time, cheerio chums!
