She Is Light: A Soft & Pretty Bridal Beauty Study

June 14th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

This afternoon on the wedding blog we are getting gorgeous, with a seriously soft and floaty bridal beauty study from Brides Up North Featured Supplier Ashley Tyrrell Make Up Artist and images by India Hobson Weddings.

Some of my very favourite Northern wedding industry suppliers have contributed to this piece including: The White Room Sheffield, Pashmina Rainbow (which I am proud to assist my best friend Jane with – take a peep at the gorgeous new website), Swallows & Damsons, House of Istria (not technically Northern but we will adopt them as our own – and they are stocked by The White Room Sheffield), Rosie Willett Designs and Conrad Bladford.  Be sure to check them all out.

Before we get on to the pretty – now that I have your attention – a little technical message if I may.  Huge thanks to all of you who are swelling the ranks of the Brides Up North community over on Facebook.  The Brides Up North Facebook page is a great place to keep up to date with happenings both on the blog and behind the scenes, get in touch with me, my Featured Suppliers and the Northern wedding industry at large.  There is always a lot going on there, so be sure to pop over and LIKE the page.

.

For those of you that already have, it has come to my attention (thanks for letting me know!) that the Brides Up North updates might not be showing up in your Facebook feeds.  Apparently Facebook has made a few changes.  Lucky for us, one of my very favourite non wedding blogs (go visit them here if you like feathering your nest as much as I do), dealt with this this very morning, and I have borrowed their step by step guide to help us out.  Thank you!

.

I have tried this myself and it really does just take a second – think of all the wedding lovely that you will be rewarded with!

Ashley Tyrrell Make Up Artist says: This Bridal make up is soft, pretty and feminine.

.

We started off with a natural look to work with the hair – down, curly, soft but with volume. The bride’s skin was already flawless so I used a light (in texture) foundation and a touch of concealer as and when required.

Peachy hues were used on the eyes along with golds and natural browns. A darker brown was applied to the upper lash line with an angled brush, with a touch of colour through the brows helping to frame the eyes with lashings of mascara top and bottom.

I used a bronzer to define the cheeks slightly and a ‘barely there’ lip colour to complete the romantic and feminine look.

Ashley says: Similarly to the bride; I used soft tones in gold, bronze and brown on her eyes and blended the brown out to keep a soft romantic look without harsh lines. Lots of mascara was applied to the lashes to ‘open up’ the eyes. Brows are so important to me; they frame the eyes, so I filled in between the natural hairs when a deep brown/almost black powder with an angled brush.

A touch of pink on the apples of the cheeks made for a fresh and natural blush and complimented this with a pinky-nude tone on her lips.

Super Sunday!

October 9th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Morning all!  It’s been a busy week.  I’ve been a guest of the UK Wedding Shows, a guest of Leafy Couture at the Harewood House wedding evening and a guest speaker at the Forward Ladies Positive Women’s Day in Sheffield, talking about “Blogging For Business”. 

.

If you would like to come along to a similar seminar in the future please contact me to let me know.  If the demand is there I will get something arranged!

.

Today I’m at The Wedding Affair at Newby Hall, Ripon from 12pm – 4pm.  Drop by and say hello!

.

So, guess what?  This time next week I will have been married for one whole year!  Time really flies (especially when you spent the best part of that year juggling two lives as a lawyer and – if you don’t know the story behind that, click here). 

.

I’m so excited as my lovely hubby is planning on whisking me off for a few days away to a secret location.  How I love him!

.

I actually have an admission to make – we still haven’t chosen the final edit for our wedding album.  Who would have thought it?  I’m a bad wife (but a good wedding blogger!). 

.

To rectify things, I have decided to devote some blog posts next week to my reflections on a year of marriage, what marriage means, looking back at the past year and my hopes and dreams for the future.  I would absolutely love it if you would chime in with your own comments and help to get some constructive discussion going here on the wedding blog

In the meantime – if you so desire, you can see my wedding pictures here:

It’s not all going to be my personal memoirs though… you’ll also find the usual mix of bridal fashion, real weddings, news and supplier showcases gracing these silver swirly pages, and boy do I have some corking wedding inspiration to share with you, like this bridal shoot that I styled last week at Rockliffe Hall, that’s in today’s Sunday Sun! (North East). The full set to come soon on the wedding blog so just a sneak peek for now…

Are You Ready For Your Close Up? Supplier Showcase: Ashley Tyrrell Make Up Artist

October 3rd, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

Having previously chatted by email, I recently met Featured Supplier Ashley Tyrrell Make Up Artist at my Brides Up North Yorkshire Tweet Up.  What a stunner!  This lady is quite the advocate for her own skills. 

.

Today, I talk to this talented make up artist (who is based in Leeds but has car, will travel) about the art of a painted face, the dos and don’ts of your wedding day war paint and how she can help.

.

.

How did you become a make up artist?

.

My make up career started in 2005 at Central Manchester College of Health and Beauty where I gained an ITEC in beauty therapy. Here, I touched on make up and found that I loved the creativity and playfulness of it. I wanted to know more. I went on to a local collage to study media and theatrical make up which then lead me to the School of Make Up. In 2008 I attended an intensive ‘Combined Media’ course. This included media/fashion and editorial make up, media/ fashion and editorial hair as well as fashion styling. I also studied prosthetics and special effects make up. I received in depth tuition from some of the most respected and experienced make up designers in the industry.

.

.

.

What services to you offer?

.

I offer brides and the bridal party hair and make up for their special day. If it is a large bridal party or an early ceremony sometimes a team of hair and make up artists is a good idea. I have made some good friends in the industry and sometimes a small team is needed.

.

.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Ashley Tyrrell Make Up Artist

.

.

What products do you use and why?

.

My make up kit contains many of the finest products available, each product is picked for its quality and suitability. I use products such as MAC, Chanel and Illamasqua. I am passionate about beneficial and pure products and I am against animal testing so I use natural products such as Bare Minerals and Arbonne.

.

.

.

.

Why should a bride to be have her make up professionally applied?

.

Many brides come to me for their wedding make up to take the stress off themselves and achieve a fresh look which will last all day, helping you feel great and look amazing! The make up I apply will be natural to the eye but flawless and heavy enough for your photography, which is the lasting memory of your day.
