A few weeks ago, I collaborated on a modern bridal beauty shoot with stunning model Ella Kehoe and fantastic photographer Linda Betts. Afterwards, Linda consulted with me on my top makeup tips and put together this wonderful article for the County Brides Blog. You can read our professional advice regarding wedding makeup here!
Here are some of the edits from our shoot. I gave Ella a very soft waved hairstyle, and then added a modern plait studded with flowers. I wanted her beautiful freckles to be seen! So I opted for a sheer and radiant foundation base. To accentuate her eyes, I went with a deep bronze and kept the look very smoky and soft. Her lips had a simple swipe of gold shimmer gloss.
