A Blushing Bride in Lake Garda

My Beautiful friend Gemma recently got married in Lake Garda, and the images are so breath taking we could not, not blog about her wedding.
An intimate wedding of 29 guests, Gemma and Andy’s big day was one of the most amazing weddings we have ever seen.
Gemma’s wedding planner arranged for a local makeup artist to do Gemma’s makeup which was flawless and Gemma wore ‘Blushing Bride’ on her lips.
Gemma and Andy were married by the Mayor at the Town Hall followed by their reception on the veranda of their hotel Villa de Sogno, overlooking Lake Garda.

Thank you Gem for letting us share your beautiful day.

Tell us Your Love Story

Our Gorgeous Red Lipstick is named Love Story and since we have launched, although we are a bridal themed make up brand, our lipstick 'Love Story' has started a theme of being the beginning of real life love stories....

It started with my good friend Ruth, who in January the minute our website launched bought the lipstick 'Love Story' as she wanted to be our first purchase, later day I called her and she mentioned that she had met a guy who she was going on her first date with later that week. She said wanted to have a gorgeous red lip for the evening and our shade would be perfect..... six months on they are madly in love and planning on moving in together!

Our second story started with one of Jennifer's (our sister) clients, Jennifer works at Kitty's beauty salon in Manchester which stocks all of our beautiful lipstick shades. One of her regular Mani/ Pedi clients came in to prepare for a holiday she and her boyfriend were going on the following day, that day, after getting her nails done, she bought 'Love Story' to take on holiday with her. Two weeks later Jennifer's client came into the salon, excited and smiling, her boyfriend had PROPOSED!!! Jennifer asked for all of the details and one of details from that evening was she was wearing 'Love Story'!

These are the stories we have been told as they have been to people close to us, but if our theme for this gorgeous red is true, it really is a 'Love Story' in it's self.

Love Story is available via our website for £12!

We would love to hear your Love Stories

Our Lipsticks on the Runway!

Backstage photo by Elizabeth Stuart
Me and Kitty were lucky enough to be invited to the amazing Elizabeth Stuart's Fall show and our beautiful lipsticks were worn on the models to complement the amazing gowns!
The only obvious lip colour choice was 'Just Married' (our nude lip colour) chosen by Pamela and Andrea MUA, as Elizabeth's Dresses are so unique and romantic that only neutral lip work work.

At the Start of the Runway
The Show showed trends of fairy-tales and nature - which looks to be hot this autumn -how exciting! Colour trends look to be dusty pinks and glitter - what you imagine when you think of a sugarplum fairy and our beautiful lipsticks are the perfect accompaniment for any whimsical look.

If you are bride looking for Happily Ever After - Elizabeth Stuarts Gowns are definitely the choice for you, marry this with a neutral lip and it is a match made in heaven!

Flower Trends look to continue being moss, earthy tones, elderflowers and hydrangeas - we love!

Our Beautiful bridal lipsticks are available
Elizabeth Stuart bridal gowns are available - stayed tuned for the fall collection it is definitely something to look out for!

Looking after number one – Your skin

In the run up to your big day, you need to start thinking about number one – you! At the end of the day this means your skin. Here are some important steps to follow to gain that natural glowing bridal look.

With the changeable weather us Brits have, we need to make sure that on those sunny days, even if it is a little cloudy to wear an SPF – whether this is in your foundation or just a light amount of sunscreen before you leave the house (imagine being sun burnt or peeling in your wedding photos!).
Also if the weather is cool remember to moisturise – ensuring your face, knees and elbows are especially looked after so that if you are tanning the tan does not stick to your dry patches.

If you are working out in order to lose those last couple of pounds from your hen do and pre-wedding celebrations – remember to take all of your makeup off before you work out! Nobody cares what you look like at the gym or at your classes. 
If you wear makeup when you are working out, your body will try to expel heat and toxins, which will clog in your pores, making your skin hold all those baddies you need to get rid of.

Choose a good skin care regime. Start early – not a week before and find a product which suits you. Stay away from anything which includes alcohol (ethanol) or ‘aromatherapy oils’- these are not natural for your skin. 
The skin care brand which we would recommend is Environ, especially their AVST range which formulated exclusively for the International Market. These moisturisers contain vitamin A and antioxidants including vitamins E, vitamin C, Green Tea Extract, Honey bush and Rooibos Tea Extracts, Resveratrol and Beta-Carotene – basically lots of skin goodies! We have recommended this range to friends and family who have mentioned noticeable improvements and compliments.

You can get Environ from good beauty salons or
