Love is all around ... it’s wed­ding sea­son

Rutherglen Reformer - - School News -

The re­cent burst of sun­shine re­ally did make us feel that Spring was in the air but there is also some­thing else – love.

Yes it’s that time of year again ... wed­ding sea­son is here.

Nowa­days wed­dings take place pretty much all year round in a stun­ning va­ri­ety of venues, but the peak times are still from April to Septem­ber/ Oc­to­ber.

It’s a busy, busy time for peo­ple work­ing in the wed­ding in­dus­try but it is a lot of fun too.

Some­times some­one’s big day can feel like a bit of a re­union for me be­cause I get to see lots of familiar faces, like pho­tog­ra­phers and stylists I love to work with.

It’s also great to see any new venues that have popped up or that have been ren­o­vated. I know there are a few this year that I’m dy­ing to see.

Get­ting to play a part in a bride’s spe­cial day is very, very spe­cial and I love ev­ery minute of it.

Even bet­ter though, is when I get to see the pro­fes­sional wed­ding pho­to­graphs.

Get­ting to see your stun­ning bride look­ing flaw­less in her pho­to­graphs is an amaz­ing feel­ing that never gets old.

I wanted to share a few of my favourites and en­cour­age you to please send me your wed­ding pho­to­graphs if I did your makeup on your big day. I have to con­fess, I’m not re­ally a pow­der-puff girl –but I do ap­pre­ci­ate they are nec­es­sary for the longevity of your makeup.

And I love Chanel’s Peche pow­der be­cause it has a beau­ti­ful two- tone ef­fect.

This means it works as a colour cor­rec­tor. In some lights it looks quite pink, in oth­ers more yel­low –the idea be­ing that the pow­der will give off a warm hue to suit the light­ing it’s be­ing worn in.

Pow­ders can of­ten ap­pear flat and dull on the skin, but this one def­i­nitely doesn’t.

I’ve tried dozens of pow­ders but al­ways go back to this one.

When I’m work­ing at wed­dings the last­ing power of my makeup is cru­cial, so pow­der is an ab­so­lute must.

A bride who looks pic­ture per­fect at lunchtime still wants to look fab­u­lous at mid­night, so set­ting the makeup cor­rectly is a very pre­cise tech­nique and I’m go­ing to share that se­cret with you.

Once you’ve ap­plied your foun­da­tion, take a tis­sue and sep­a­rate the two lay­ers.

Lay one tis­sue layer on to your skin and pat in very gen­tly.

Us­ing your pow­der puff, pick up some pow­der – not too much – and tap it into the tis­sue which is placed against the skin. Al­most like bounc­ing the pow­der puff off the skin, not push­ing it in.

Re­move the tis­sue. By us­ing this tech­nique you have re­moved ex­cess oil from the skin, whilst at the same time de­liv­er­ing just enough pow­der to set your base with­out your face look­ing dry and clogged.
