Bridal make up marathon by Claire and Emma

Posted by Claire, at June 12, 2012

Saturday morning. Jubilee Weekend. The buzzer goes. Emma McBride is at my door and its 7.15am. Coffee was calling as I scrambled my make up gear together ready to head out to our biggest make up marathon to date.

On arrival Sarah and her four bridesmaids were highly organized and were cleansed, toned, primed and ready to begin the make up step by step. Sarah’s mum, who I had met previously at her trial was also there ready to be made up for her daughters big day! Emma and I had a quick discussion and realized that each bridesmaid had their own individual style and the make up needed to reflect this. Emma’s make up kit is extensive to say the least, Mac, Bobbi Brown, ID Bare Minerals, Lauder, Benefit, Chanel, Clarins and more. Between us I am sure we have kept John Lewis Cheadle in lucrative business this wedding season, as this little snapshot will reveal…..

And that is just the half of it, under the table we had another two suitcases filled with goodies a girl could only dream of. Some of the girls had requested false lashes of which we were happy to apply and the looks were glamorous, but natural and still maintaining the classic bridesmaid feel.

Our beautiful bride Sarah, she looked absolutely stunning once the make up was completed…

Tip – In order to keep the make up smooth and long lasting I used Estee Lauder ‘Idealist Even Skincare Illuminator’ as a make up base prior to the foundation application. This amazing new product is well worth the investment for those of you who wear foundation on a regular basis.

Once the hair and make up was complete we said our goodbyes and wished all the girls the best of luck. Once again thank you so much for having us and allowing us play a small part in your special day. We hope you had a wonderful day and hope to see you all very soon.
