A Real Irish Colleen

Hey everyone,

I don’t blog nearly enough about my lovely Brides. The lovely girls who I have the pleasure of making up, for the biggest most glamourous day of their lives. I need to start updating this more and more with some of the looks and makeup, to share with you.

So meet Colleen, one of my gorgeous Brides from April from Co. Kerry:

 

Colleen had booked me so far in advance ( April 2010) I was so excited to meet her and her mom when they came for their trial earlier this year. Colleen is a natural beauty with FANTASTIC eyebrows and the most beautiful eyes. I know she was going to amazing. Colleen loves makeup too, so we had great fun.  The morning of her wedding was a breeze, down in Castlemaine Co. Kerry. It was a full house with 4 bridesmaids also. As usual I had my camera in hand and took some pics below.

 

Colleen’s base was a nice natural warm tone and I kept the empasis for her eyes.  Using a a nice sweep of black liquid liner and very gently using earthy tones for her eyes.  She has gorgeous big eyes so I wanted to focus on that.   Nice dewy cheeks and highlighted and contoured her face matched with a natural pink lip = Classic and timeless.


 

 

 

I love the colour of the bridesmaid dresses, they suited each of the girls perfectly.  Came the makeup nice and natural – again bringing out the eye colour and leaving the skin with a dewy spring finish!

Big congrats again to Colleen and Eddie.

Perfect Nude

I know its been a while but I am trying to keep up with the blog entries 🙂

I am HUGE fan of nude lipsticks.  And I think they look even better in the Spring/ Summer time when you dont need to be wearing all that much makeup during the day.  Go for a nude lippy during the day and jazz it up then at night with a little berry or red without having to go to much effort.

Celebrities like Kim Kardashian are very fond of the nude lip, and almost always team it with a sexy smoky eye.  I have listed below some of my favourite nude lipsticks and gloss that I am constantly robbing from my own work kit to put in to my own!!
