LYNDSEY- Before & After

Photography by Nigel Fleming Photography 

I have been very neglectful of my blog and am going to have to play catchup! The month of December is just so busy with makeups, girls going out, winter weddings etc and then every year between Christmas and the New Year I am inundated with bridal enquiries. So that’s where I’ve been and what I’ve been doing! I didn’t win the lotto and am not sailing the world on a yacht with a private jet unfortunately:) If any of you lovely customers of mine do win the lotto please let me know, I am willing and able to travel around the world with you as your private makeup artist, just saying :)

On Saturday I had the pleasure of doing my first wedding of 2014 for the gorgeous Gemma.  Gemma loves her eyes dark and so what a bride says goes! She really suits a dark eye and was a beautiful bride. Her bridesmaids were wearing dusky pink so I kept Gemma’s lips this tone and added a hint of pink to the outer/top socket of the eyes too. The eye makeup is clearer in the second photo. 

The three fab bridesmaids (complete with straws in their champagne so as not to smudge their lipstick!)

Gemma’s gorgeous mum Pauline who made me so welcome in her home and looked like one of Gemma’s sisters, not her mum!

I had two of my Eyes & Brows Makeup Masterclasses in November, back to back on a Tuesday and Wednesday night. On the first night I took some photos before everyone arrived and someone close to me cheekily commented that it looked like nobody turned up! So for the second evening I got some photos taken. Hopefully they’ll give you a better idea of how it all works. Louise was my model for the second evening and did a great job as an eye and brow model. Aoife McShane was my model on the Tuesday night and was an even better eye model but unfortunately I don’t have any photos of her :(  If you would like to come to the next masterclass keep an eye out here where i’ll be advertising the dates for the new year.

Hiding the wine lol! :)

 Myself and Edel who came all by herself :)

At the end of the evening I finished Louise’s smokey eye with some bronze glitter to add sparkle for the festive season :)

 

This is by far my busiest  year for weddings with weddings now running right through until New Years Eve and I had a booking this week for 2016! I’m so lucky to be so busy and thank you to everyone who recommends me and comes back to me time and time again for makeup. I really do appreciate your support.

Danielle got married at the end of June and really was such a beautiful bride. Danielle loves her eyes being well defined and also loves her blusher and as she suits this look we did that for her bridal makeup. I loved doing her make-up with her bridesmaids on the morning of her wedding.  As Danielle was so well organised I had time to take a few photos of Danielle and the bridesmaids in their dresses and with those stunning flowers.

 

 

Before the hair and make-up look, having breakfast part one! 

 

For all of the photos by the official photographer for the day and to see all of the amazing details Danielle had at her wedding (and the husband of course!) have a look at Erica Irvine’s page –  http://ericairvinephotography.wordpress.com/2013/08/14/danielle-cathal-june-2013/

On Thursday morning I did makeup for a very good customer of mine, the beautiful Stephanie. I don’t usually take photos of my customers as most people are camera shy and usually still not that dressed when they’re in with me but I talked Stephanie into a quick iPhone photo before she left to go to the wedding. I’m really glad she agreed to a photo, just stunning.

A photo of how the eye makeup looked looking down, a funky twist on a 60′s look. And a fushia pink lip to add colour as Stephanie was wearing a classic black dress to the wedding. I really love the fact Stephanie had freckles from her recent holiday and she didnt want them covered up. I think freckles are so youthful and keep makeup looking fresh. Gorgeous girl, I don’t think Stephanie actually knows how gorgeous she is which makes her even nicer!
