Real Brides: A Family Affair

Port Wine Stain Cover Makeup

I often get referals from my brides, so can end up doing the same people’s make-ups for various different weddings. This was the case with Ann and Mags. I did Ann’s make-up for her wedding one year and then the following year I got a call from her sister saying that she would like to book me for her wedding too.


Ann was a gorgeous girl who booked me because she had a large port wine stain on her neck that she was desperate to cover up for her wedding day. She has a trial with another make-up artist, but wasn’t happy with the results. We did  a trial with my airbrush, but in the end we decided to use the Vichy Dermablend instead as it just doesn’t budge all day. We had a lovely morning and they had a great wedding day.

Roll on a couple of months and I was back with the family again. It definitely makes things easier and you know everyone already and the bridesmaids trust you. Below are all the sisters who were bridesmaids for both.

It was so funny, when they sent me through the pictures, I got near identical pictures of their sister Teresa:

I love the way that both girls went for a very different palette of colours, which made their whole weddings stand apart from each other.

It was lovely to work with them again and hopefully I will get to see them again for the next wedding.

I hope you are enjoying my real brides section. If you would like me to talk about anything else, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Lots of love,
