Makeup for a wedding at Ramster Hall in Surrey

“Catherine was professional and friendly and really listened to what everyone wanted. I was so happy with the make-up on the day and got so many lovely comments from everyone. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend”Emily Conroy 

Emily got married at the beautiful Ramster Hall in the Surrey countryside:

Ramster Hall is a family-run wedding venue just outside the pretty village of Chiddingfold in Surrey. It features three impressive halls set around a courtyard, and is surrounded by 20 acres of beautiful gardens. It can be hired exclusively either as a wedding reception venue or for a civil ceremony for up to 160 guests.

Emily’s wedding day was captured beautifully by Surrey wedding photographer Sophie Duckworth (images cropped by me here so that you can see the make-up more closely):

The bride wanted a super-natural make-up look for her wedding day, to complement her plaited up do by Lucy at Hair That Turns Heads.

I began by using Avene Skin Recovery Cream all over, as Emily has very sensitive skin, followed a little smoothing primer, and Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder foundation in the shade ‘1 Fair’, which is their lightest shade.  I then used a little NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer in the shade ‘Vanilla’ wherever she needed a little more coverage, before setting everything by buffing in some translucent powder and dusting on some Benefit Hoola Lite bronzing powder to warm her complexion.

I used a light, neutral blusher to warm her cheeks (Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in ‘Mood Exposure’), and Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in ‘Highlight 01’ to highlight her cheekbones.

I used a softly shimmering light pink eye shadow on her lids, and lots of brown waterproof mascara to help define her eyes.

Emily doesn’t really like the feel of lipstick, so I applied Charlotte Tilbury lipliner in the shade ‘Pillow Talk’, followed by NARS lip gloss in the shade ‘Chelsea Girls’, a neutral pink gloss to enhance her lips.
