Holly and Joe’s Wedding Day

In General, Weddings on

I wanted to share a recent wedding with you all that I did for the new Holly Gardner, the pictures are fantastic so here I am spreading them for everyone to see!

Check out Damian at DSB creative – Brilliant!!


Holly had quite dry skin so a hydrating moisturiser was applied first. I left it to soak in for a few minutes before applying a satin primer  to keep a young, fresh look to her skin. Foundation buffed into the skin and brows set in place with a wax and powder.

Moisturiser – Embryolisse

Primer – Illamasqua satin

Foundation – Nars Sheer Glow

Concealer – Illamasqua Skin Base Lift & Derma Palette

Brows – Elf Brow kit

Holly wanted smokey eyes so I applied a shadow primer, cream shadow and Urban Decay naked palette to achieve the look. Black eyeliner and lashes finished off the eyes.

Eye primer – Elf

Cream Shadow – Maybelline colour tattoo

Eyeshadow – Naked Palette

Eyeliner – Illamasqua gel precision

Finishing the complexion is really important. I like to put everything wet and waterproof where it can be on first then set with a powder product. The key is many thin layers for a lasting makeup.

Daniel Sandler – Waterblush

Illamasqua – Gleam

Mac – Soft & Gentle

Nars – Orgasm

Nars – Translucent powder

Holly had a quick check on everything, we bronzed her up a little more then put the final touches in place for her lip and then set her whole makeup with a setting/sealing spray.

Mac – Pressed powder

Max Factor – Lipfinity

Elf – Setting spray

Happy Ending

These are some of the best wedding photos I’ve seen, a huge shout out to Damian the photographer.

I would like to wish Holly and Joe all my love and best wishes for their future together.
