Winter Wedding Makeup in Worcestershire

Lapstone Barn Styled Shoot with Tulle & Blue.

Back in February, I had the pleasure of assisting the amazing Jane of Tulle & Blue for another Bridal styled shoot.  The theme for this one was the romantic winter bride.

Lapstone Barn is a glorious building dating back to the 18th century & is nestled just outside the picturesque village of Chipping Campden.  The backdrop is simply breath-taking & it’s the perfect venue for a couple wanting that rustic but elegant feel to their wedding day.

When I saw Jane’s mood board I instantly fell in love with the theme.  The colour scheme with soft hues of dusty rose & French blues gave me the feeling of romance & ethereal elegance.  With this beautiful country venue situated in the Cotswolds as the backdrop my ideas flowed.


With the makeup I chose bronze & gold shades knowing it would complement the theme perfectly.

As a Worcestershire wedding makeup artist, I’m all about the skin, It’s your canvas.  I believe bridal makeup should be about showing off what we have naturally not about hiding behind a mask of foundation, it should enhance the face not change it.  With this in mind & using the 2019 catwalk trends as inspiration, I opted to keep the skin on our beautiful model’s light & dewy with a fresh sun-kissed finish knowing that this is suited for any skin tone.  Airbrushed makeup is perfect for giving a flawless finish without the heaviness, so I added in a drop of highlighter to the airbrush foundation which helped lift the skin & create a natural glow.

I kept the eyes neutral using soft bronze & taupe with a hint of gold for highlighting.  I kept emphasis on luscious lashes to frame the eye.   Bronze really complements blue & worked so well on both models.  On the lips I used the just-bitten look as inspiration, applying the lip with a flush of colour from the centre & feathering it out with a fluffy brush really enhances the lip without overloading on colour.  It’s perfect for a light & airy finish which is bang on trend for this year’s brides.

The shoot was incredible, with a team of fantastic suppliers.  We worked together seamlessly as always & created a beautiful elegant bridal shoot that can be an inspiration to anyone planning a winter wedding day.
