I have just finished beautifying the gorgeous bride Carina and her maids at The Milling Barn in Throcking – Nr Baldock. Carina chose a curly side updo, a little volume on the crown and pretty flowers to finish the style perfectly.
Carina also chose a summery flawless makeup, individual lashes and a golden glow looked absolutely beautiful and will compliment her Blush coloured wedding gown.

Happy New Year! If you are a lucky bride-to-be planning your wedding this year then what an exciting time for you and a huge congratulations on your engagement.
You’ve probably booked your venue and perhaps even chosen your dress then why leave your hair and make up to the last minute? After all, such expense getting every detail perfect, don’t risk ruining your big day by booking an inexperienced make up artist/hairstylist. You need to be able to trust your make up artist that they can deliver on the day, that your make up not only looks flawless from when it’s applied but also last thing at night and that your curls/waves are not looking bedraggled and your updo is still intact – when you are waving your guests off after a wonderful and magical day.

Here are a few pictures from a recent wedding at Ashridge House in Berkhamstead. The wedding of the lovely bride Michelle, her 6 bridesmaids, mum and aunt so a total of 9 hair and makeup’s completed in 4 hours. They all looked absolutely amazing in and no doubt had a wonderful day.
Michelle chose a smokey charcoal and silver eye, defined with lots of liner and lashes, she also wanted an elegant yet modern hairstyle that represented her fun and lighthearted personality as well as complimented her dress and the gorgeous setting.
The bridesmaids were all in a deep burgundy dress which was perfect for a Winter wedding, the rich colour commanded a strong defined socket line (eye) so we chose a gorgeous sparkly berry shade by Morphe cosmetics and a glamorous set of lash extensions to finish the look. The hair was in a side bun and adorned with a sparkly crystal and silver hair comb.
Here what the bride had to say after the wedding

Such a great feeling knowing that you helped make the brides day even more special
Let’s face it, as we get older we can no longer get away with the things we once did for example drinking on a school night, skipping on sun cream and essential skincare and for most women like me, getting away with wearing zero makeup.
But what are you supposed to do when you’ve got kiddies to look after, a household to keep in shape and a busy work schedule to juggle, finding time to yourself is impossible. Well I’ve put together a quick 2 Min No-makeup Makeup routine especially designed for busy-mums or those who can spare very little time on their makeup in the mornings.
Step 1 – dab a little concealer under the eyes (or where needed)
Step 2 – a large kabuki brush apply a thin layer of mineral foundation (or liquid)
Step 3 – using an angled brush apply black/brown shadow to fill brows
Step 4 – using same brush apply a little of the shadow close to the lash line (or pencil)
Step 5 – apply a little mascara
Step 6 – Dust blush or bronzer on the face (concentrating on cheeks)
Step 7 – apply lipstick or gloss of your choice
Quick and easy, you’ll feel awake and ready to face the world!

It’s been a busy Summer with plenty of weddings for us here at The Makeup Girl St Albans, myself and my team have beautified numerous

August Bank Holiday weekend was our busiest yet and we travelled throughout Hertfordshire, London, Bedfordshire, Essex and Bucks to
beautify brides and they looked amazing. It’s wonderful when it all comes together and our clients are happy with their hair and makeup. We have met some lovely brides and their families in the past few months who have looked after me, my assistants and of course my bump (I’m expecting a baby in Dec) with a steady supply of cold drinks and sweet goodies…yummy and of course helping us carry our heavy cases up and down gorgeous venues that don’t have lifts.
So it was an Amazing August and here’s to a Spectacular September as the season is not over yet. I temporarily hang up my brush kit at the end of October (to have my baby)for a few months but this doesn’t mean that I am not available to meet for a consultation or a chat to discuss your requirements as 2013 is already filling up fast. If you’re looking for a premium hair and makeup service then contact us ASAP.
