First of all I need to stress that I think every bride should hire a makeup artist to make her feel like royalty on her big day. It is the one day where you not only want to feel but look your absolute best. That said, even Kate Middleton did her own makeup, and it turned out beautifully. ( Although she had the best in the business supervise her while doing so !!!) The big key is do not over think things and go out to the counters and spend €’s on 10 different items that you probably won’t even use. Simple and straightforward products that will keep a good place in your makeup bag even after the big day, that’s what you want!
Bridesmaids Makeup – By Dawn of glamour by Dawn So many brides ask me is it common for the bridesmaids makeup to be a certain way on the day, also alot think that just because the bridesmaids dresses are purple or pink that the eyeshadow that the bridesmaids should be the same aswell. That is definately not the case, in all cases of makeup – you choose colours to enhance the eyes. If you want to go for smoky look, then that’s fine but make sure it suits.
Both James and I were beyond delighted when Keith agreed to photograph our Wedding on April 12th this year. From our very first conversation, we were amazed at his professionalism and his attention to detail. His genuine warmth and friendliness immediately assured us that we were in safe hands. We were absolutely confident that our wedding photos were going to be amazing based on the already excellent standard of his work. His passion for his job shines through every time.

Spring Makeup by Dawn of glamour by Dawn So with Spring upon us and lately we have been graced with some fantastic weather. Not sure how long it is gonna last (knowing Ireland, about 5 mins) but we sure will make the most of it. Although it’s not very hot it is still important to protect ourselves so be sure that when wearing makeup that you have some with a little SPF it. Or mix a very light SPF with some of your primer before putting foundation on. If not using foundation, just apply some bronzer around the frame of your face and a little under the cheekbones just to warm up the skin and bring a little of it done along
