From just bitten cherry pouts to deep bold raspberries and washes of dusky roses on the eyes and cheeks…..we are seeing a return to romance on the runway and our Brides.

A perfect style for any spring bride…Whether you choose to go bold with a statement stained lip (M.A.C Versicolour Stain in Last Minute) or find your inner English Rose with a flushed cheek (Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Rosebud)…… pair with soft undone hair and lots and lots and lots of flowers for an ultra feminine look.


There is nothing more timeless and flattering as natural beautiful glowing skin….this look most defiantly has Megan, The Duchess of Sussex influence all over it!

It’s more than just a bit of highlighter! It’s an all over glow inside and out!!

As bridal specialists we can help you created this look with makeup but it does require a helping hand from you too… prep is vital to creating this successfully!!

1.    Start your skin routine in well in advance to your wedding (at least 3 months). That last thing you want to do is to use anything new and have a disaster.

2.    Up your water game!! Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!!!....a hydrated skin is a glowing skin! Even if you only have a few weeks to go it makes a huge difference to not only your skin your dark circles to.

3.    Update your skin care regime….visit a skincare specialist, tell them what you are hoping to achieve and how long you have till the big day! 

4.    Treat yourself to a facial or 2 or 3….we love and the amazing range of treatments available at The Source Clinic in Morningside.


Brightening Bronzes, Glowing Golds, or Starry-eyed Silvers…This season’s eyes are awash with metallic tones.

Think of it as an modern, effortless take on a classic smokey eye. Paired with a soft set of lashes to add subtle drama to compliment any bride-to-be’s look…from classical to cool.

Winged Liner is back….think less Instagram and more bold, sultry like Bardot or soft, flirty flicks like Hepburn. 

This look is undeniably striking and sexy, but balanced with a glowing skin and neutral hues to compliment your lips ….it’ll have you slinking down the aisle in 2019! 

Fear not….. We’ll make sure your wings are tear proof too!




Ever a classic and always a statement….Reds are back on our Brides lips for this season.

There is a shade to suit all we’ll help you find it and matt velvet textures will add a touch of Parisian chic.  

Bridal Fashion has evolved away from the classic this year and we are seeing more jumpsuits and geometric designs on our fashion forward Brides…..a bold tomato red lip would be the perfect pout for these fashionistas. 


Lauren and the creative team are professional, highly successful Artists with years of experience within the industry. 

We understand, timings, logistics and how to work alongside both the bridal party and other professionals. Using our industry experience and technical skill we will create a make-up design that is completely personal to you for your special day.
