My Best Friend's Wedding

This post is well overdue. Apologies to those of you who have been waiting. I've been lacking flow...
But I've got my writing hat on now and I wanted to share with you a piece on what was to many, the wedding of the year. My best friend Krishna got wed to her soul mate on a scorching hot weekend in July and I was honoured to be doing her wedding make up!

So how do you make up someone who never wears make up? Krishna has great skin so the lucky thing doesn't need to wear make up - ever! But it was her wedding day and she wanted to look great in her photos so for a couple of days only she was willing to be the centre of attention and let me touch her face with my make up brushes! I had been waiting for this day for a very long time and knowing her as well as I do it only took one trial and a little bit of faith from Krishna for us to come up with the perfect look for her.

It was an Indian wedding so colour was a must and given her love purple I did a soft smokey eye with violets and indigos using a combination of MAC and Front Cover eye shadows. I even managed to get her to wear false eyelashes! Eyelure Naturalites are my favourite lashes for someone who wants to wear falsies without them looking too much. All I did with her skin was use a touch of MAC Face and Body foundation to even the it out and give her a bit of a glow. Bobbi Brown Uber Beige Pot Rouge was used for slight colour and contour on her cheeks and the look was finished off with Bobbi Brown Beige Lip Colour and a slick of clear gloss over the top.

Krishna looked beautiful but still like herself and it just goes to show that brides don't need to wear tonnes of make up to look good on their wedding day. Everyone knows my love of natural looking make up, flawless skin and making my brides look real and I was uber chuffed with how my best friend and her two sisters looked on the day.

It was a perfect wedding and all the clothes, accessories, hair and make up looked just gorgeous. Enjoy the rest of these beautiful photographs of not only the make up but everything else that looked pretty too :)

If you liked any of the looks I created for Krishna, Krupa and Kirti and you are interested in booking me for you wedding day please get in touch :)

Just love
