Bride Magazine Photoshoot - How we got the Bridal Look

28th Aug 2019

It was a magical day modelling for Bride Magazine and having makeup artist, Elaine Marie Buckley create my bridal look.  I was so pleased with the transformation my makeup made, which you can see in the before and after pictures below!

Elaine from shares with us how she got my strong makeup look to work with the stunning ivory wedding dress by Eternity Bridal, shown in the picture above.
"I kept the eyes fresh with eyeshadow shades of warm champagne in Mac Cosmetics, I also used Mac Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid to make the Catherine's skin look fresh and flawless.  We used Eylure's Enchanted Flower Ranger faux lashes as they had a fuller lash look, these were from Undercover Glamour. I love an elongated eyeliner look, which follows the almond shape of Catherine’s eyes beautifully, I achieved this using the Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner Pen. The blusher I mixed from my blush artistry palette to compliment the stunning cool pink lipstick. The lipstick was from Charlotte Tilbury in the shade 'Queen' and I topped this with Makeup Forever in the shade 'C207 creamy fuchsia pink'."

To get the big hair transformation, I am wearing my Undercover Glamour clip in hair extensions which have made my hair both longer and thicker to get a more glamorous look.  I am wearing colour no.2.6, our Caramel Mocha Blend, as above.  I love how the lighter brunette (natural brown) creates a sunkissed, highlighted look. I am wearing our 18 inch hair extensions, I am 5ft 5 so you can see how this length looks in the pictures.  I am wearing our Deluxe set of Hair Extensions, which are our thickest and best hair extensions.  I really recommend our thickest sets of hair extensions (Deluxe) for your wedding day and special occasions and especially if you are aiming to create a show stopping hair style.

Elaine created two different wedding makeup looks for the day, for the different bridal dresses worn.  The pictures below show the first look and the first bridal gown worn.  The makeup was the same as the above description just the lips started off in a natural shade.  The natural look complimented the bridal gown by Mary's Bridal and from Dress Code Nine.
