Lisa Matthews Make-Up Artist. Wedding make-up for the bride and her maids.
My bridal beauty career really started with Chanel, as their VIP make-up artist. I was always the artist that was sent the brides. “Oh go to Lisa, she does a lovely bride” they would say. So, I built up a reputation as the “bridal make-up artist”. And I loved it – still do.
And it all started with Louise. We had a consultation and decided on her look, which was a natural light weight foundation, coffee and cream colours on eyes, with a bit of definition, a soft pink blush and delicate rosy petal colour on lips.
Louise wanted a bridal make-up that I am now very well known for – my signature look. A look that is classic, natural, healthy, with lovely glowing skin and a soft smoky eye. All very pretty and looks wonderful in natural day light, plus photographs beautifully. And I know, that your make-up photographing flawlessly is so important because we live in a world of digital photography and super duper phones.
So, my brilliant beauty tricks and techniques, have helped many a bride along her beauty pathway. And, it’s all about the preparation and putting lots of beauty effort in, especially for the wedding day. Boring as it is but you need to drink lot’s of water – it is the most important thing you can do for your skin – hydrate. That and exfoliate. Eat tonnes of fruit and veg and get a decent night’s sleep! A light tan – to give yourself a nice little glow – can work wonders for your complexion as well. Don’t forget your vitamins to help sort out temperamental skin.
Once you have you skin looking tip top then you really won’t needs tonnes of make- up. It’s simple really – your make-up will only look as good as your skin underneath. And if you skin is great then you make-up will look fabulous!
