Yesterday I had the great pleasure of doing the makeup for bride Amanda, on what shaped up to be a beautifully sunny day – just perfect for a fairytale wedding. Amanda’s wedding dress was based upon the Disney animation Snow White, and came from the Disney wedding dress collection, so it definitely had impact in it’s stunning crimson colour. To match her dress, Amanda had red roses in her plaited hair – so designing the makeup was quite tricky. Amanda didn’t want anything too much, nor did we think red suited her english rose complexion. So instead we opted for a coral colour for the lips, and kept the makeup very classic bridal so as not to over power the occasion and that incredible dress!
