As you all know, I had the priviledged position of doing my sister’s make up for her wedding a couple of weeks ago. I really enjoyed doing it despite my nerves about it all. I didn’t think to be honest that’d I’d be good enough. I mean, I love make up, I own lots of it, but I’m not actually very good at it! Having said that I think I did a pretty good job when it came down to it! So I plan to just share some pics followed by a list of the items I used.

Most of the photographs are courtesy of the fantastic John at http://www.cornishweddingphotography.co.uk/. Please go and check out his site. Thank you John for allowing me to use them here.

Primed and ready.

Doing the eye make up.

A hairy moment with the liquid liner. I find it almost impossible to do on myself and even harder to do on someone else!

Onto the mascara!

Don’t smile while I’m lining your lips! πŸ˜‰

And here’s the finished article!

So there we have it. I’m pleased to say that it lasted all day too πŸ™‚

Anyway, for reference, here’s a list of all the products used:

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Pebble
Estee Lauder Lucidity Translucent Powder in Medium
Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer in Light Medium
Elf Eyebrow Kit in Light
Clinique Pore Minimiser Primer in 01
Benefit 10 Powder (just the bronzer side)
Nars Orgasm Blush
Mac Soft & Gentle MSF
Estee Lauder Double Wear Lip Liner in Tawny
Clinique Butter Shine Lipstick in Pink-a-Boo
Clinique Lash Power Mascara in Black
Estee Lauder Double Wear Liquid Liner in Graphite
Mac Subculture Lip Liner
Mac Soft Ochre Paint Pot
Bourjois Gris Pailettes Eyeshadow
Mac Silver Fog Pigment
Mac Sweet Sienna Pigment
Mac Fix+

I must while I think of it thank both Clinique and Estee Lauder for providing me with several of the items used and some that weren’t. I and Elisabeth were truly grateful. In particular I must recommend the Estee Lauder foundation matching service. You make yourself an appointment and they match up your foundation according to your colouring and needs and they send you off with a 10 day sample of foundation, free of charge, a great service and one we used to get the right foundation for Elisabeth’s base.

Finally might as well show you how gorgeous my girls looked along with my FotWD (Face of the Wedding Day!).

If you’ve got this far, well done! And thanks for reading as always.
