Alternative Bridal Makeup

As a bridal makeup artist it’s not very often that I get asked to create a look a bit out if the norm. When I met Lynsey her bridal style was definitely a little different… After chatting to her we decided her style was more ‘Ethereal Woodland Fairy’ than ‘Classic Bride’ and the more gold leaf and glitter the better! She explained that the wedding was also going to be on stage in a gothic woodland scene hand made by her fiancé. AMAZING!

Admittedly Lynsey’s makeup was a bit crazier at her trial, multi coloured crystals, gold leaf and glitter but on the wedding day it was a slightly tamer version. Her hair was done first by the wonderful Vicki Lord so we felt like it would have been too much to have mega makeup as well as really dramatic hair. Vicki and I would have been creating competing not complimentary styles! She also had a change of heart about the mix of golden green eyeshadow and gold leaf, so we stuck with greens and silvers.

Lynsey wanted to keep all of the emphasis around her eyes with strong green shading and big flicks. The added drama was created by strip lashes and little crystals around one eye. Her skin was beautiful so I just used a lightweight foundation with loads of highlighter, to give a flawless dewy finish.

Here are my behind the scenes pics of the wedding morning and some professional shots from Miki Photography.
