It was an early sunny morning when myself and the hairstylist (Alice) turned up to do Sophie and wedding party’s hair and makeup. There were lots of people to get glammed up – seven in total for hair and makeup! Sophie was getting ready in a local B&B in Newquay, then she had cars arranged to take her to Lusty Glaze Beach.
Its was a great atmosphere as they were all getting ready, and Sophie didn’t seem nervous at all.
Sophie’s makeup was a nude look with a glowing, flawless skin. I used Temptu airbrush foundation, which covers amazingly but looks very natural, and Mac brown eyeshadows for that nude look to compliment Sophie’s brown eyes. The look was finished with a Mac lipstick in Yash, which I recommended that Sophie have of her own for the day so she can top up if needed.
The photographer, Paul Albion Row, was great fun to have around snapping away. His photo’s are always amazing.
When we saw Sophie in her wedding dress we were stunned – she looked incredible!
Once we had finished all of the looks, we said goodbye to Sophie, her friends and family and wished them well.
Sophie contacted me a few days after the wedding to thank me for the makeup. She said it lasted all day and into the night. I saw her photos taken by Paul and it was great to see the makeup not moving.
The wedding day looked amazing. Who couldn’t ask for a better venue than right on the beach in Cornwall?
