So first we started with basic make up, which is just a flawless base, with a wash of colour on the lips and darker shadow pushed into the lashline, blusher and some lipgloss. Now we've moved onto bridal!
I took some pictures of my model - at the moment we pair up and do each other's make up to practice - at different stages. Unfortunately the lighting isn't the best so apologies for that! Claire also had sunburn on her nose and it was peeling so I just avoided her entire nose which looks a bit weird but never mind! Also apparently we look alike, what do you think???
At this stage I had only applied foundation and concealer. Claire's skin is combination/oily so I used an oil-free foundation. Her undereyes weren't particularly dark to begin with so I didn't need to use any corrective products, I just used a concealer which was the same colour as the foundation.
This is the finished bridal make up (click to see close up). I actually totally forgot to put mascara on, I'd tinted her eyelashes a couple of weeks ago and they are still black so you can't really tell...
This was the first time I'd made a face chart so it was a bit weird! Normally you are supposed to prepare these before you do the model's make up, but yesterday we just filled it in as we went along.
Hopefully I will do lots more of these, and they'll get a lot more interesting!
