Real Wedding

 

The one for me: Matthew and Luzio met on a beach in Rio de Janeiro. "Matthew was advising someone about his allergies, but the person didn't speak English," says Luzio. "I stepped in to translate, and we got talking. We had our first date later that evening and were instantly attracted to each other."

Melissa Barker, Editor of Your West Midlands Wedding magazine
Melissa x
Hair and make-up artist, Laura Timms Mowinski tells us how to create the perfect look even if you don't normally wear make-up.

"We have so many brides that either don't wear make-up or a very small amount day-to-day, so they come to their trial unclear of what they want and all say the same thing 'I still want to look like me.' It's about emphasising your natural beauty and helping you feel comfortable and confident. If you're going for a minimal look, you might want to focus on your skin in the run-up to the wedding. If it's healthy, radiant and glowing, then you may feel as though you need less coverage. I always recommend a trial to all my brides, especially if you're not used to wearing any products.

"Eyes – I'd always recommend a soft, neutral look. If you're not used to wearing black liner, then I'd try out a brown version as black can be quite a harsh hue. With regards to lashes, I tend to point my brides towards cluster lashes just placed on the outer corner of the eye, so it really opens them up without using a strip lash.

"Base – For those of you who don't wear foundation, start with a tinted moisturiser and add to the base until you're happy with the coverage. All artists have a variety of products for different skin tones and required coverage. A light blush can be added to enhance your natural beauty, and when paired with a subtle highlighter looks beautiful."
