  • Bohemian 1970s Bridal Makeup Tutorial

    This is a great look for brides that prefer a more natural bohemian feel to their makeup and definitely one of 2015’s key summer trends. The main focus is on the eyes, and although the shadow is subtle the soft earthy tones buffed into the socket finished with strip lashes give a real doe-eyed effect.  The skin should be kept fresh with a light weight foundation and bronzer to add that beachy sun kissed feel. 

    *************************************************************************************************

    Start by applying a fawn toned shadow to the eyelid.

    I used MAC Paint Pot in Groundwork £15.50

    The brush I used was Crown Brush Firm Shadow £4.59

    Eyeliner was another important tool in 70s makeup but to keep it more natural apply a brown cream liner along the lash line and then soften with the eyeshadow brush, extending it a little towards the outer lash line.

    I used Maybelline Gel Liner in Brown £7.99

    how to do 70s boho bridal makeup

    Build up the eye shadow colour but try to keep to natural and earthy tones. Blend a deeper taupe from the centre of the eyelid to the outer corner.

    Next blend a deeper shade of brown into the socket line and a little under the bottom lashes.

    I Used Seventeen ‘Peep Show’ Palette (no longer available). A great alternative is Clarins Eye Quartet Mineral Palette in ‘Forest’ £32.00

    The socket brush was Crown Brush Deluxe Crease £3.49

    how to do 70s boho bridal makeup

    TIP: Build up the colour slowly as you don’t want the eye shadow to look too heavy.

    Using a strip lash that compliments this style, normally I would opt for natural looking lash that is thicker at the base (for a Brigitte Bardot look) and has a natural finish. Fit the lash to your natural lash line, and trim the access from the outer corner of the strip.

    I used Ardell Demi Wispies False Eyelashes £5.49

    how to apply a strip lash

    Duo Striplash Adhesive ‘Dark Tone’ £8.39

    Using tweezers to hold the lash, press the lash into your upper lash line and hold into place until the glue has dried.

    how to apply strip lashes

    Instead of blush opt for a bronzer to create a tanned look. Use a natural-looking bronzer to achieve the effect as this gives the skin a healthy glow.

    I used Illamasqua Bronzing Duo £26.00

    Real Techniques Blush Brush £9.99

    how to do 70s boho bridal makeup

    Apply the bronzer anywhere on the face where the sun would naturally hit it. Sweep it from the forehead, to the cheeks, a little across the nose and then down to the chin.

    how to do 70s boho bridal makeup

    TIP: The soft shape you create should be like you are tracing the number 3, but if it starts to look like the number 3, its too heavy and you have applied way too much bronzer!

    To give that real fresh feel, finish the look with a nude lipstick or a frosted translucent gloss. For that real Boho look avoid lip liner and keep the lips as natural as possible.

    I Used Illamasqua Sheer Lip Gloss in Opulent £16.50

    Ta-Da!… The finished Boho 70s Bridal Look!!

    The 20s is one of my favourite eras when it comes to make up as I love a bolder lip and a bit of sparkle. It’s a great look for winter brides and if you don’t feel brave enough to wear a really dark lipstick opt for a lip stain instead for a softer look. 

    Here is my simple step-by-step tutorial including the products I used to create this look.

    ******************************************************************************************

    First apply a nude matt cream shadow, from the lash line up to the brow bone to create a neutral base.

    I used MAC Paint Pot in Painterly £15.50

    20s bridal makeup tutorial

    Using a champagne cream shadow apply over the eyelid, stopping just above the socket.

    I used Vintage Selection Paint Pot by MAC £15.50

    20s bridal makeup lucy jayne

    TIP: To create better adhesion for loose glitter use a cream eye shadow

    Cover the cheeks with a tissue to prevent the loose glitter from dropping onto your cheeks and getting messy and for a more contemporary look keep the glitter simple!

    I used MAC Glitter ‘Reflects Pearl’ £17.00

    20s bridal makeup lucy jayne

    Line the lips with a darker lip liner to create a precise shape and this will also prevent the lipstick from ‘bleeding’.

    I used MAC Lip Pencil in Spice £12.50

    20s bridal makeup tutorial

    Tip: To keep your lipstick lasting longer, colour in your lips with the lip pencil

    Using a lip brush apply a berry toned lipstick which is key for the 20s trend

    I used MAC Lipstick in Rebel £15.50

    TIP: To keep you’re lipstick lasting as long as possible blot your lips with tissue then re-apply lipstick.

    Apply a deep pink blush for that ‘pinched cheek’ look

    I used MAC Powder Blush in Dollymix £18.00
    Real Techniques Blush Brush £9.99

    20s bridal makeup tutorial

    Add a slick of gloss to finish this contemporary 1920s bridal look

  • Very Vintage Wedding at Lympne Castle

  • I love it when I get to see my brides photos, and one in particular that I knew would be utterly gorgeous was Kerry! When we met at her trial it was apparent that her attention to detail was second to none, especially as she was making everything herself and her thrifty mum was collecting hundreds (may be a slight exaggeration!) of vintage tea pots for her afternoon tea. This was her choice of wedding breakfast and as a huge tea and cake lover I am a big fan of this idea! It was a December wedding at Lympne Castle and this vintage wedding theme was slightly on the festive side. I think if you are going to have a winter wedding – this is how you do it!

    As Kerry’s bridal style was vintage inspired, her makeup was too. Her skin was kept quite matt with medium to full coverage foundation in MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NW10, which is a perfect colour for her porcelain skin. To create that natural ‘just got in from the cold’ soft pink cheeks, I used a sweep of pastel pink blush in Well Dressed and for more intense colour I added a pop of a deeper pink on the apples of her cheeks in DollyMix. For Kerry’s eyes I used a combination of short and medium individual cluster lashes from Ardell to create a ‘sweeping’ flick effect that complimented her pretty eyeliner flicks in Blacktrack, and no vintage look is complete without the signature matt MAC Rubywoo red lips!

    This wedding was styled beautifully and if you saw it in a magazine you would think it was a wedding shoot or designed by a professional wedding stylist. This is why my brides are so cool!!!

    Enjoy this Christmassy wedding feast for the eyes…

  • Mini Moon at the Ox Pasture Hall (Hotel Review)

  • Back in September I was contacted by a very nice man by email, it wasn’t the normal ‘I have $1000000 and want to give it all to you if you can give me your bank details and pin number’ spam emails I am used to! It was an invitation for a complimentary stay in what looked like a beautiful country hotel – The Ox Pasture Hall, Luxury Boutique Hotel in Yorkshire, in return for an honest review. As I live in the South I thought it was a bit to far for a one day stay and I pretty much wrote it off, that was until I had a light bulb moment!! We were planning on having a few days away after our wedding for a mini moon and hadn’t decided where to go. We are an outdoorsy couple and fancied going somewhere in the UK for a post wedding chill out. When I realised we could bring our dogs it sealed the deal! 

    We set off on our journey hoping for beautiful countryside, lovely dog walks, friendly people and importantly somewhere we can unwind. That is certainly what we found!


    Ox Pasture Hotel North Yorkshire

    The Ox Pasture Hall is set in amongst 17 acres of lush green countryside surrounded by fields, woodland and a lot of sheep! It’s a cosy retreat and regarded as the most romantic hotel in Yorkshire! When we arrived we were checked into our room which was an absolute delight. It was a large airy suite with plenty of natural light (as a bridal makeup artist I am always drawn to the natural light!) There was the added luxury of a tv a in each room, huge bed and his and hers basins along with a walk in power shower in the most beautiful bathroom (this was especially nice because our shower at home is from the dark ages). It was rubbish weather and a little walk from the main building, but this wasn’t an issue because there was shelter and it was nice to walk through the prettiest courtyards. I can imagine how lovely it must look on a sunny day!

    Bedroom Suite at Ox Pasture Hotel Yorkshire

    Bedroom Suite at Ox Pasture Hotel YorkshireWe booked in our afternoon tea reservation at 3pm so we quickly tidied ourselves up and went down to the bar. The afternoon tea was served in the ‘snug’ area in front of a warm cosy fire and it was amazing! I love nothing more than a good brew, cakes and scones (in that order) so this was such a treat for me. Mr Brown is quite the ‘mans-man’ and didn’t really get what I was fussing about untill he tucked into the warm home made scone! We can safely say he is an afternoon tea and scone convert now! The dogs were allowed everywhere other than the restaurant so we had them with us, Betty the pug was too nosey to settle down but our staffie Murdoch laid in front of the fire while we had a little snuggle on the sofa and sunk into a massive food coma. 

    The hotel was a nice combination of a warm rustic country pub, stylish restaurant and luxurious bedrooms. My favourite part was the pub and the welcoming rooms that surrounded it, furnished with chesterfields, and over sized cushions. It was a shame that while there was a roaring rustic fire in one room, in another was a dated electric fire. Being in the wedding industry I can help but have a nosey at the wedding facilities. The Dovecote Suite is purpose built function room that resembles a large modern barn, it sits amongst the rest of the building seamlessly and is the main facility for weddings, like all weddings the occasion is the same but the brides style is different and the barn-like function room is a perfect canvass should a bride want to dress it with their own personal touches!

    Ox Pasture Hall Wedding Venue Yorkshire

    We booked our evening meal quite late as we was still so full from afternoon tea! Our waiter bought us out two glasses of prosecco while we mulled over the menu. Us Browns are really into our food and everything sounded delicious. When the food was presented to us it looked like something from master chef and tasted incredible, I might even have to say Michelin star standard! We enjoyed our food whilst our friendly waiter chatted away with his local knowledge and funny anecdotes.

    We retired to the snug where we enjoyed red wine in front of the lovely open fire, and like the sociable couple we are checked our Facebook and Twitter! Who said romance is dead?...

    Ox Pasture Hotel North Yorkshire

    The following day we woke after an amazing sleep in the giant bed, and it must have been that quiet that even the dogs didn't wake us. We had to get a riggle on so we could make the most of the hotels grounds and of course breakie before our drive back home, daan saaf! Mr Brown opted for the standard full English but I was still so full from our 3 course meal so I went continental. We grabbed our walking boots and explored the hotel grounds, in the rain, with the dogs.

    We had such a great stay and it really is a charming and friendly place. I think the only shame is that it isn't closer to us, especially when the barman was telling us about the Christmas accommodation. How nice to be able to stay somewhere as lovely as that and be catered for, so we don't have to worry about cooking the Christmas dinner! 

    The Ox Pasture Hall is close to so many great spots to visit. While we was here we made the most of the fantastic surroundings and explored the area.

  • FAQs: What to expect from your bridal makeup artist

  • What happens at the initial bridal makeup consultation practice session?

    The consultation is not timed and my promise to the bride is that I will only leave once she and her bridal party are 100% happy I normally suggest allowing 30 min’s – 2hrs per person and the consultation will need to be carried out during the day because daylight gives the truest reflection of how their makeup will look. I create face charts with in depth notes of every member of the bridal party so I know exactly what I am doing on the wedding day.

    The wedding day is discussed at the consultation and I provide the bride with a timetable for the morning so she has a clear idea of the makeup running time. I also incorporate the hairstylists times, find out if the photographer needs time with the bride for formal photographs (this will mean getting ready earlier) what style her dress is and how long it takes to get into it and also if she needs to talk to the registrar. Timing is so important on the morning of the wedding and the last thing I would want is to have to rush. I explain that I would allow 30/45 minutes for each member of the bridal party and 60 minutes for the bride, who I always do last so she is immaculate just before getting into her dress. I like to create a fun and relaxing environment for the bride to enjoy the experience.

    How do I help the bride to find the right look for her big day?

    The most important thing is to enhance natural beauty and create flawless skin; the rest is listening to my clients needs and then building upon that to design their perfect wedding look.

    What I have learnt is that my opinion only matters to a certain extent. I have the skill to apply the makeup and give advise but when a bride has her ‘perfect wedding look’ in her mind its my job to intemperate it the best I can. This will start by initial chats on the phone or by email and once I meet my brides at their consultation (normally 6 – 8 weeks prior to the wedding) we have a chat about their wedding style, their personal makeup style, colours, and discuss images of makeup that the bride likes. I always explain that once I start to apply the makeup, it will always be a more minimal/natural version of what I think they want, because I never assume what I do will be the finished article. My brides will then see their makeup, we look at the option of using lashes (strip or individual) and the do the tweaks and changes of colours to build upon the final look. Changes are sometimes minimal but other times we can work together to create a much more dramatic finish.

    Describe which brands you use

    I try to use a good cross section of premium products that will last the duration of the day and well into the night and whether it is a summer or winter wedding. It all helps to makes the bride feel pampered, because this will be a once in a lifetime occasion. The main brand I use is MAC, I find that the MAC products are great for fashion and bridal and the quality and longevity of the products are what’s important when it comes to bridal makeup. I also use Dermablend, which is a full-coverage concealer, it is a concealer that is waterproof, smudge-proof, non -transferable and full coverage so brilliant for covering severe blushing, tattoos, birthmarks and I also use it as a concealer for acne. I continue to invest into new products all of the time.

    Other Makeup and Beauty products I use:

    Nails – OPI Nail Polish, ASP Gel Polish

    Lashes – Ardell Lashes

    Makeup – MAC, IllamasquaBare Minerals, Benefit,  Smashbox and many more!

    … If I am happy to use it on myself I am happy to use it on others!

    Do I provide makeup services for other members of the wedding party?

    Yes! I like to include as many members of the bridal party as possible, I understand that sometimes its not possible for everyone to attend the consultation so I will then allow a little more time on the wedding morning so we can discuss their needs before I apply any makeup. The thought of someone else applying your makeup can be quite daunting for some people. If a nervous mother of the bride/bridesmaid/mother in law is toying with the idea of makeup but they are worried they will feel pushed into looking like a clown/transvestite (I hear this a lot lol!) I suggest that even if they are not sure they should come to the bride’s consultation and they can get to meet me, we can have a chat about it and I can give them the reassurance they need. If they are happy I can then apply their makeup as a trial with no obligation that they have to commit to it on the wedding day. I am glad to say that they aren’t scared by the end of the trial and will generally book in for makeup on the wedding day. On occasion when a bridesmaid has been adamant that they don’t want their makeup done they have a change of heart on the wedding morning so as long as time allows I will always try to accommodate them!

    What happens on the wedding day?

    When it comes to the wedding day I believe that specialising in one thing is far more important than being adequate in two (on average I can apply makeup for 5-7 ladies on the wedding morning, time allowing). I like to keep to makeup application only the wedding day and being completely confident in my skill and service. I work alongside some amazing hairstylists that I am happy to recommend to everyone because their attention to detail is the same as I mine. I like to focus on the makeup and it has to be perfect! I do everything I can to make the wedding morning a fun – not nerve-wracking experience and I like to fit into the environment. I do what I am there to do, help out with any dresses if asked, give a final makeup touch-up, I will leave samples of lipstick/lipgloss that I use on everyone and sometime concealer, if any of the bridal party has a ‘breakout’ (they may need to touch up later in the day) and leave once everyone is completely happy.

    Do I offer other beauty treatments?

    Yes. I offer a few beauty treatments to give my bridal clients a wider service. The services that I offer are normal manicure, pedicure, Gel manicure/pedicure and spray tanning (I am also in the process of training in Eyelash Extensions). Having a full understanding of the above treatments means that I am able to advise my clients if logistically I am unable to carry out the treatment. There is nothing worse than a terrible spray tan or lash treatment so I am able to advise what are the best brands to use, timings and sometimes recommend a therapist if I am unable to do it! The additional treatments I offer are a great source of income the most important thing is that the bride has a great experience every step of the way and I am glad that I can cater for their pre wedding pamper parties or hen do’s.

    I hope that has been helpful!! LJ xx

     

     

     

     

  • Skin Face Mapping

  • Following on from my post about my wedding skin prep (you can see my post here) I wanted to look further into acne and what your spots mean.

    What are comadones & cystic acne?

    Comodones = Black Heads & Whitheads

    Cystic Acne = Spots that are more like lumps that you can feel under the skin. When they are visible can look red, swollen and are generally quite painful.

    What does Noncomedogenic mean?

    This is a term applied to oils, lotions, and skin creams that do not block pores. Noncomedogenic products are also sometimes referred to as non-occlusive. The theory behind using lotions that are noncomedogenic is that it won’t block pores, and won’t cause spots.

    Have you ever wondered why your spots appear in certain areas and what this means? The ancient art of Face Mapping can help identify the cause of blemishes by splitting the face into zones.

    face mapping lucy jayne makeup

    Zone 1 & 2 Forehead

    Spots on the forehead tend to indicate a stressed bladder or digestive system.
    To help ease this, try increasing your intake or water, green tea and fibre-rich foods that help dispel toxins and excess waste. Contact spots are also common in this area where grease or products from the hair can creep onto the face, so try and keep your hair up and out of the way.

    Zone 3

    Alcohol and dairy are said to be the main causes for spots in this area as well as reactions to food allergies. This is t-zone acne. More sebaceous glands in this area means bigger pores which can lead to excess oil production, comodones and inflamed spots.

    Zone 4 & 10, 6 & 8

    Spots close to your ear and even dark circles around the eyes can be caused by dehydration. Make sure you keep well hydrated throughout the day by drinking, at least, eight glasses of water a day and avoiding coffee, tea and salt whenever possible.

    Zone 7

    This area is skin is full of dilated pores so make sure your make-up brushes and anything that you bring close to your face are kept clean and products are noncomedogenic. Try to reduce high blood pressure for an internal solution to clearing spots in this area. 

    Zones 5 & 9

    Stress, too much sugar and sometimes dirty mobile phones can be the cause of cheek spots. Spots plus a red flushing on the cheeks may also be a sign of Rosacea.

    Zones 11 & 13

    Typical for us ladies, this is the area that will be most affected because of our hormones. In these areas you will have more lumpy cystic spots that will linger and sometimes leave a bit of scaring. Another interesting point, breakouts in this area indicate when you are ovulating (and on which side).

    Zone 12

    Stomach, if your diet has been loaded with rich and heavy foods then consider a detox or adding more fibre to your diet.

    Zone 14

    Spots here can indicate that your body is trying to fight off an illness. Take it easy if you begin feeling unwell and drink plenty of water to give your body some time to relax

    Please note: The acne causes listed for each facial region are general guidelines and may not apply to everyone.

  • The Festival Beach Bride - Styled Shoot

  • At the end of last Summer Kelly and Laura (Festival Brides Blog) organised the Summeriest of all bridal shoots. Right now I am looking through these beautiful and vibrant images and it just makes me feel soooo ready for the Summer… 

    The set styling of the sand dunes was incredible, such beautiful colours to play with! Lots of peachy-coral, turquoise, lilac and pinks. The colours were perfectly complimented by the different dress designs. The first dress was a bespoke design from Wilden Bride the second was a boho maxi from Ell and Cee and the last was a sequin delight by Sarah Seven. (Note to self: DO NOT try on any of the above just before a very tall gorgeous model!)

    The makeup and hair looks were always going to be push the traditional bridal boundaries. Perfect fo…

    Claudia had quite curly hair but it needed to be ‘beached up’ a bit. I used a curling wand to create more defined waves as apposed to messy curls and then  used a surf spray to create texture.

    The first of the two makeup looks was quite vibrant. I used lots of coral shades with a hint of red and metallic gold to create a ‘burnt orange’ eye shadow. I kept Claudia’s skin natural and dewy as her freckles looked so lovely – they needed to show, I used a coral blush to give a hint of sun kissed peachy skin. The sun was starting to set and we still needed to shoot the last Sarah Seven dress, so for the last look I was given 20 minutes to change makeup and get our lovely model back to the beach! No pressure… I kept her hair the same and maxed up the makeup! I applied loads of gold glitter around her eyes and also on her arms and hands. To give extra emphasis to her eyes I also carefully applied gold leaf along the crease. Looking back I wish I had used more (I could ALWAYS use more) but never mind, I think Claudia still rocked the look of a bridal sun goddess! 

    Here are some of the beautiful images to help inspire you for your special day – Especially if you are a Festival Beach Bride!

  • Chic Bridal Makeup

  • Their are so many brides that are inspiring me at the moment. I am getting ready for my own wedding day in November and I must say that I am loving my job at the moment. I love it anyway but when I can talk weddings and get ideas from my cool brides, it makes it so much more fun.

    I am keeping my wedding ideas quite secret (don’t worry I will be shouting about it once its happened!) but for now here is one of my recent weddings that I absolutely adore. Bride Sarah was effortlessly chic and was so much fun. Her excitement and joy was captured perfectly by Benjamin Toms (who is also my wedding photographer) he took the most beautiful photos of her big day. 

    I still haven’t decided on my own hair and makeup and yes I will be doing my bridal makeup, but I think timeless with a hint of glamour is always a good look! Watch this space…
