Our senior makeup artists have many years of experience working with brides to create the look they’ve always dreamed of.
Below they answer some of our bride's questions.
What is bespoke bridal beauty?
It’s about both the process and the products. At Cosmetics à la Carte we believe in natural, individual beauty, which means creating a look to suit your unique taste. We don’t have a catalogue of looks; each one is completely made to measure. As an artist, I help brides develop the vision of themselves, experimenting with different colours and textures. There are so many options. Do you prefer a complexion that glows, or stays matte? If you want a nude lip, which undertones will make your face truly come alive? With our bespoke blending services, anything is possible; there is no need for compromise on one of the most important days of your life.
What are your favourite products for brides?
I love hyaluronic primer for a flawless complexion, paired with Sheer Tint mattifying tinted moisturiser. A shiny t-zone doesn’t make a good photograph; Sheer Tint looks so natural and yet lasts all day. I also won’t do without Brow Ink precision liquid eyebrow pen, which won Best Brow Product in the Perfect Wedding Best Bridal Beauty Buys 2016. It’s great for definition that you can’t distinguish as make-up and lasts all day.
What would you recommend for a clear complexion in the run up to the big day?
Follow a simple, effective cleansing routine. A micellar water cleanser such as our Total Lift Off works extremely well. Exfoliate gently once or twice a week to keep skin soft and bright and create a beautiful finish for your makeup. Hydrate, especially the lips and around eyes. I recommend our Rose Hydrabalm for the lips and Hydralift anti-fatigue eye gel for the eyes. And finally, despite all the excitement - try to get as much sleep as you can!
