Bridal Fashion Shoot for You & Your Wedding Magazine.

Winter Berry Bridal Fashion......

 Some words by Fran @ Gemma Sutton:
Winter Couples, rejoice! You're spoiled for choice when it comes to styling your wedding. Think festive glitter, sparkling white wonderlands, or as this shoot shows, a glorious mix of romantic, moody tones and juicy winter fruits.
The look is a combination of romance, colour and masculinity to provide a setting that's perfect for all parties involved. 

Some Top Makeup Tips on Gemma Sutton's Bridal Fashion Shoot by Miss Fairytale. 

When I saw the venue, The Elvetham, I thought WOW, this place is amazing! Absolute stunning, so grand and regal, set in wonderful grounds. It was a beautiful crisp winters day and the sun was shining.

 From the moment we got set our brief, I thought this look was going to be so much fun to do! The brief was a blown out smoky eye using golden and berry tones with deep berry lips. A heavy smoky eye is my absolute favourite look to do, so I couldn't wait to get started!
I then got to meet my gorgeous model Leonie who was also super excited about the brief. It was great to be paired with her! After some introductions and some time to get ready, we got started!
Firstly I stated of by cleaning the face with Bobbi Browns Soothing Cleansing Oil to ensure the skin was beautifully clean, then applied Bobbi Browns Repair Moisturising Balm, which smells amazing and is great at ensuring the skin stays super moisturised throughout this cold, wintery day. 
I then applied Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer all over the face and HD Brows Eye Primer over the eyes to ensure the make up didn't move all day long. 
As the brief was a smoky eye, I did the eyes first. I used the Charlotte Tilbury eye palette in Vintage Vamp to help create the look. From the palette I used the gold (Pop) over the lid. I then used the beautiful rich berry tones in the outer corners and socket (Enhance and Smoke) for some extra definition on the very outer corner of the eye I used Urban Decay Blackout. I then use a little MAC Gleam in the inner corner of the eye to warm it up a little.
For the under eye I used a mixture of both berry tones for the palettes. These colours really brought out the green in the models eyes. I then applied HB Brows Intense Black Eye Liner to the upper lash line and water line. To finish off I used Maxfactor False Lash Effect Mascara and lots of individual false lashes for a super dramatic look. 
I then moved onto the face, starting with MAC Studio Face and Body Foundation in N1 mixed with MAC Strobe Cream to give the skin a stunning healthy base. Over the areas of the face that needed heavier coverage I used MAC Full Coverage Foundation in NC15, under the eye I used MAC Studio Finish Concealer in W10. Over certain parts of the face I used MAC Select Cover-Up for a super flawless finish to the skin.
To slightly contour the nose and cheek bones I lightly used Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit in Farn. Using MAC Soft and Gentle Mineralize Skin Finish I highlighted the check bones, inner corner of the eye, bridge of the nose and Cupid's bow. I applied a little MAC Nude Cream Blush in A74 to the apple of the checks.
For the lips I used L'Oréal Red Lip Palette , the beautiful deep berry tone and then pressed lots of pigment over the lip colour to make to lips look velvety and matte, whilst also making the colour last longer.
Lastly to set the make up I used HD Brows Finishing Powder followed by a final spritz of MAC Prep and Prim Fix+ Spray.
The end look was sexy and dramatic, Leonie looked absolutely stunning!
This shoot was filled with fun and lovely people, I can't wait to see see the photos. 
Lots of love
