Make-up for a wedding at the Asylum chapel in Peckham

Make-up for a wedding at the Asylum chapel in Peckham

The delightful Lindsey got married at the Asylum Chapel (AKA Caroline Gardens) in Peckham in London: This beautiful, dark old chapel was bombed in World War II and has a faded grandeur that comes to life when it is lit up with candles and adorned with flowers, making it increasingly popular for London brides who want a cool venue with a bohemian vibe and a spiritual atmosphere.
Lindsey’s wedding was captured by Surrey based wedding photographer Sofie Hughes: (image shown here cropped from the original), and she wore a delicate vintage style silk and lace gown by up-and-coming London based wedding dress designer Dana Bolton: 

To create Lindsey’s natural make-up look, I applied Giorgio Armani Maestro foundation in shade 3 and Clarins Instant Concealer in ’01’ where needed to enhance her porcelain skin. I then set her base by dusting on Dermablend Setting Powder and then Laura Mercier ‘Matte Radiance 01’ powder to give her skin a delicate glow.

I then applied a light matte bronzer, and warmed her cheeks with MAC ‘Rosy Outlook’ – this powder blusher is ideal for giving a peachy bloom to fair skin tones.

I kept her eyes simple by applying neutral shades from Urban Decay’s Gwen Stefani palette and then lining Lindsey’s eyes with a dark brown gel eyeliner for definition, followed by some Eylure ‘Cheryl’ lashes for a romantic flutter.

Finally, I applied Bobbi Brown lipstick in ‘Sandwash Pink’ to enhance the bride’s natural lip colour for a classically pretty bridal look.
