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…

 

Jane’s mum who freshly baked the most amazing raspberry and white chocolate scones the morning of the wedding ;)  

Most of the time I’m normally doing makeup for “real” brides which is my favourite type of makeup, however it’s nice too to do makeup sometimes for photoshoots and for the models that come to do these. I never really get to meet the groom either at real life weddings let alone do their makeup lol! So on the odd occasion it’s also great having a chance to do some subtle male makeup for a photoshoot/training day. Below I’ve attached some photos from makeup I did for a couple of photography training days my husband Nigel Fleming was running with the theme being bridal. 

The first model is Destiny. As the bouquets were pink toned I keep her eyes these tones also

 

Destiny with her “husband” Jay who is in fact her boyfriend in real life. I used MAC Face & Body Foundation on Jay just to even out the skin tone and a dust of powder to flatten any shine for the camera flash.

Summer bridal season is well and truly here and I’ve had the pleasure of seeing so many beautiful girls this summer morph into true Princesses ready to marry their Princes! Fairytales still do exist I believe :)  

Nicola and her grogesous bridesmaids and flowergirl. The fact that the girls were all blonde and blue eyed meant their baby pink was just perfect (Flowers by Janice Watt, The Flower Studio). Such a perfect summer bridal wedding colour 

Nicola, who knows a thing or two about makeup herself as she works for Benefit. So great doing makeup for her :)

 

Gorgeous Stephanie, this girl just loved every single second of her morning getting ready. Loved the atmosphere in her house :)

Beautiful Lizie, who’s mother -in-law Gail I worked with in Ulster Bank Financial Services. Gail and I were invited to the hen party in Carrick-on-Shannon. Great night! I’ll insert a wee photo below of Lizie and I :)

The fab bridesmaids, Lizie’s two sisters and her best friend Grace

Lizie and I while she was still a singleton! (married a dairy farmer hence the cow dress!)

 Orla, who’s house was just full of her family on the morning of the wedding with us having nine makeups to do on the morning. Many thanks to Louise for assisting me. Orla was just so calm and a truly beautiful bride

The stunning bridesmaids
