I travelled to Kos in early May to manage the beauty salons for Mark Warner. Knowing that I would very likely be required be the makeup artist for one (or more) weddings. So naturally I had to bring an extra suitcase for all the necessary cosmetics (well that was my excuse!)
For Justine – my first bride – we chatted and decided on simple and natural look for her big day, although you need to apply a little more than usual as the camera makes more look less. And we’re in a hot country and so it does need to fight against the heat. Justine had been on a shopping spree to Charlotte Tilbury and decided on the make-up she wanted – which was helpful.
Here is a break down of what I used. First of all we prepared the skin.
Charlotte Tilbury – Goddess Skin Clay Mask
Elemis – Rehydrating ginseng toner
Elemis – Pro Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm
Elemis – Maximum Moisture Day Cream
Charlotte Tilbury – Charlotte’s Magic Foundation Shade 4
Charlotte Tilbury – Hollywood Flawless Filter 2
Charlotte Tilbury – Airbrush Flawless Finish – Fair
Charlotte Tilbury – Legendary Brows – Perfect Brow
Charlotte Tilbury – Eyes to Mesmerise – Jean
Charlotte Tilbury – Luxury Palette – The Sophisticate
Charlotte Tilbury – Filmstar Bronze & Glow – light to medium
Charlotte Tilbury – Lip Cheat – Pillow Talk
Charlotte Tilbury – Matte Revolution – Pillow Talk
You can see from the photographs that Justine looked just lovely; she has a naturally content look about her so the make-up I used only enhanced her natural radiance. In essence that is what I want to achieve as well as bringing out Justine’s favourite features which in turn makes her look beautiful and radiant on her special day in front of all her friends, family and most importantly the groom!
