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.
