Recreate this beauty look with Bridal Hair and Make Up By Kimberley

Recreate this beauty look with Bridal Hair and Make Up By Kimberley: Image 1 We asked Kimberley Williams of Bristol's Bridal Hair and Make Up By Kimberley how she created this beautful wedding beauty look... 

For the timeless chignon, firstly prep the hair with heated curlers to give root lift, while using a volumising cloud mist gives a little more texture and hold. Back comb the back and crown before smoothing into a bun at the nape. The model's remaining hair was kept in its original parting and swept around the sides to cover the chignon. Her hair was so long, we had enough to put two small kiss curls on one side. Finally, it was fixed with a firm-hold hairspray.

Skin should always be prepped before starting the hair using a moisturiser (SPF-free to avoid flasback from the camera) and lip balm. You're then ready for a cream foundation and concealer under the eyes, around the edges of the nose and to cover any blemishes.

The eyeshadow we chose here was a soft bronze-taupe colour, to make her green eyes pop. We used a medium-brown powder for the brows and a black gel liner on the top lash line and half way across the bottom to open the eyes. Whispy false lashes were applied for added drama. A subtle peach blush and a touch of highlighter enhanced the cheekbones, and the look was completed with a translucent powder and classic pink lip. I particularly like Charlotte Tilbury's Pillow Talk lip shade.
