The perfect bride

Written by Melodie Briere. Posted in News.


There is no perfect time to get married , a winter ceremony can be as romantic as a summer or a golden autumn wedding. I guess it just needs to be with the right person. That said , there are many ways of getting the perfect make-up !

All cultures have different preferences when it comes to their wedding makeup. Some prefer very heavy smokey eyes with a bold red lip with gloss on top. Others will choose to have an ultra natural complexion with  soft pink lips , touch of blusher and a little  bit of mascara for eye definition. Whatever you prefer I have one advice , book a trial. 

The trial will make sure you know exactly what to expect on your special day. You will be pampered and have nothing else to worry about than saying " I do". During the trial the makeup artist has to know what you will wear, if you have a vail (no lip gloss!!!) , if there is a theme and obviously if you've seen anything in a magazine that you would like to recreate to suit your face.

Make sure you take good care of your skin starting a few months prior to the big day (you should take care of it married or not) . Sisley has top of the range , very natural skincare , although expensive I had very good feedbacks from their customers. I personally use the hydra life range from Dior , smooth and hydrating , it leaves your skin supple,plumped and soft.

I hope this will help prepare you for your big day. Don't be afraid to contact me for a trial or if you have any questions.

Bisous ladies.
