I recently did the makeup for Gemma and Emmette, both models, for a photography workshop day at Nigel Fleming Photography. This was held at Parkanaur. Gemma and Emmette are two gorgeous people so it was just a pleasure doing their makeup. They both have amazing skin and great features which makes applying makeup so much easier. For Emmette I just used MAC Face & Body Foundation, light powder, and slight contouring with vaseline on the lips. As Gemma has beautiful sallow skin and dark eyes I kept the tones in keeping with her skin tone and added false lashes with a pinch of blusher on the cheeks to add bridal prettiness. I also changed her lips to a red lip half way through the day for something different.

I first met Emma a few years ago when she came with her best friend Sarah (pictured below as a bridesmaid)  for a “Lashes and Flashes” Makeover Photoshoot (hair, makeup and photoshoot experience). Emma’s bridesmaid, also Emma, was one of my very first brides so it was such a pleasure doing this wedding as I not only knew Emma, the bride, but I also knew her bridesmaid (and sister-in-law Emma) and Sarah her other bridesmaid who was a bride of mine a few months previously! (I hope you’re not lost, this is all a long winded way of saying we all had great craic as we all knew each other well!)

I‘ve had the busiest year so far and blogging hasn’t been top of my to do list! I absolutely love doing makeup and chatting to people and other than washing my makeup brushes blogging is my least favourite thing to do! It seems to take me so long so I’m trying to get caught up with some of the beautiful girl’s makeup I had the pleasure of doing over the summer and share with you how they all looked.  I may not put a lot of text or writing with these blogs and the photographs do the talking anyway :)  

Stunning Jane and her bridal party – one of the hottest days of the year…
