Nicola’s wedding at Hilltop Country House

I first met Nicola at Hilltop when she came along for her food tasting and also Hair and Make up trial – not at the same time! With her were her lovely husband to be Matthew and their gorgeous little boy Toby and we had a couple of wonderful hours in their soon to be wedding venue!

I was delighted and honoured to meet such a caring, honest, warm and friendly girl who dedicates her work to looking after people and her 2 beautiful sons and in return I was ready to look after and pamper her on the morning of her wedding.

Nicola arrived at Hilltop with her 2 bridesmaids and “mini Mum”

Team Meik Make up which this day consisted of Myself and the lovely Jacqui did hair and make up for the entire bridal party including her 2 lovely bridesmaids Gillian and Julia.

Nicola wanted a very fresh natural look and wanted to use golden tones on her eyes, to enhance their natural blue tones. Nicola has lovely skin which we wanted to glow and I really wanted to enhance her pretty eyes that seem to smile!

We used MAC foundation and buffed it into Nicolas skin, we wanted to keep the look very fresh and dewy too so we also used creme blush also by MAC which is one of my favourites – “Brit Wit”.

For a lovely glowing highlight I delicately applied strobe cream to the areas of the face that I wanted to highlight.

I believe it is always important to frame the eyes by making sure eyebrows are neat and defined and we just lightly filled and shaded Nicola’s with a smashbox brow palette, this is an item I love using in my kit and lots of people like to buy, I think it iften gives a much softer look than a pencil and applied the product with my Ruby and Millie slanted brow brush.

I put a very delicate contour into the sockets of Nicolas eyes to define and enhance the shape and we used a chocolate shimmer eyeliner in a  waterproof long lasting  gel formulation which we gently blended into the lash line for a lovely soft look. We completed the look on Nicola’s eyes with lashings of Opulash in Black by MAC.

This lady was a truly beautiful bride inside and out and I wish Nicola and Matthew all the love, luck, laughter and happiness in the world for their future together.
