Real Wedding: Natalie & Ryan at their Family Home
Katie is a makeup artist with over 15 years of experience in the industry, and her love of weddings is second to none.
This was a special wedding for me to be involved in, as the bride was about to be my sister-in-law. As a makeup artist you don't usually get to witness the rest of their big day so when you get to be a guest the wedding and see the "first glance" etc. it is such a great feeling.
Natalie had chosen a gorgeous vintage inspired dress and wanted a look that complemented it without looking like she was from a specific era. She has a very natural classic look so we kept it very simple, with a fine lined eye with a small flick, clean fresh skin and one of my favourite lip colours, Truly Red by Laura Mercier.
With just the one bridesmaid, it was a very chilled out morning. Gemma, the bridesmaid, wanted a very natural makeup, so we used soft taupe colours on the eyes and a lipcolour, a couple of shades deeper than her natural lip.
The wedding had a very relaxed and fun atmosphere and was held at a friends incredible house with views for miles. The reception was held in a marquee with a gin bar and wonderful live band! Both the bride and the red lipstick remained in tact as she danced the night away.
