Wedding Guest Hair & Makeup

wedding hair

Despite the miserable weather and constant rain that plagued us during the past week, I woke up on Saturday to glorious sunshine and a sense of excitement as it was my lovely friend’s wedding day. It was an absolutely perfect day and I thought I would just share with you my hair and makeup from the occasion. Thankfully, because the weather was so cheery and dry, I was able to wear my floral-bright Topshop dress, better demonstrated here, paired with some nude heels and coral pashmina.

For my updo I simply pulled my hair back into a basic ponytail, loosened the hair into a hole just above the hair-tie and then pulled the ponytail up and through again. I repeated this until the end of the ponytail was tucked away and then I pinned it all securely in place.

For my makeup I wanted to keep it light and natural with a touch of peach and coral on the lips and cheeks. I am still obsessed with peachy-toned makeup with plenty of warm, golden highlighter and glossy lips so I started off with my trusty Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch primer which gives the skin a wonderful, even base for your foundation. My foundation of choice for the day was Chanel Perfection Lumiere followed by Bourjois Concealer Stick for those pesky dark circles and troublesome blemishes. I added some warmth and contoured cheeks to my look with the Clarins Splendours Bronzing Compact and popped Benefit Coralista on my cheeks for a perfect peachy glow. On my eyes I chose a beige and a taupe shade from the Accessorize Lovely Day palette and softly blended them together over my lid and into the crease. My lashes were treated to a few layers of Clinique High Impact Extreme Volume mascara and my brows defined with the HD Brows compact. I highlighted my brow bones and cupid bow with Illamasqua Gleam cream highlighter and added a swirl and a sweep of powder from the Sleek GLO Face & Body Highlighter to give my skin that lit-from-within-glow. Just before I scooted out the door I grabbed my Clarins Lip Perfector in Candy Shimmer for a glossy, pink lip to complete the look. And there we have it!

What do you think of my wedding makeup and hair?

    Your hairdo is super pretty and elegant, I love it! I really like your makekup aswell – I'm quite curious about the perfection lumiΓ¨re foundation. I've read kind of mixed reviews on it. I've tried the pro lumiΓ¨re but sadly it has discontinued πŸ™ it was a lovely foundation!

    Such a beautiful look. I really want to try "Gleam". Have you tried the Tom Ford cream highlighter from the "Shade & Illuminate" duo? If so, how do the two compare?

    You look so pretty! I love your dress, it really makes your eyes stand out. That Clarins bronzer is such a pretty compact, I don't think I'd ever be able to use it xxx
