Bridal Photo Shoot Parkanaur Nigel FlemingPhotography Linen Green Dungannon | CATHERINE FLEMING MAKE-UP

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.

Yesterday, Nigel was doing some photography training for a fellow photographer and I did Keely, the model’s, make-up. My two loves in make-up are bridal make-up and photoshoots so the combination of both just made for my perfect day! Hair was by David Graham Hairdressing, Linen Green. Dress by Bonita Bridal, Moy and Brooch Bouquets kindly supplied by The Flower Studio, Dungannon. The venue was Parkanaur which is just a stunning setting for a wedding – Santa’s reindeer galloped past at one stage! Do reindeers gallop? Hmm, not sure what the correct terminology is on that one, but…anyway it all added to a great day out!

For Keely’s make-up I did a classic bridal look. I used By Terry Rose de Rose liquid blush which is just beautiful. It claims to ” include Rosamine, a natural carmine botanical pigment drawn from Rose petals, containing translucent matte micro-reflectors that sculpt the face with fresh, natural rosy lights” and it really does smells of fresh roses and is so luxurious and gorgeous on the skin, it gives a radiant flush to any bride’s cheeks. At £40 for a bottle it’s not cheap but then every bride deserves to feel special on her wedding day

For the eyes I used two eyeshadows from the Urban Decay Naked palette ( “Toasted” and “Hustle”), a small amount of black eyeshadow under the bottom lash line and added some false lashes (Eylure) to really define the eyes. For the lips I used a Rimmel pink lipstick “Vintage Pink” and added some gloss.

It would nearly put me in the notion of being a bride again!!

This photo of Keely outside before she turned into a Cinderalla bride shows the make-up in daylight which is good for any bride to know how their bridal make-up will photograph in daylight. She just looks flawless.

And last but not least, the photographers! Nigel absolutely hates having his photo taken so I sneakily took this one when I had the chance!
