Christina’s elegant at the Salcombe Harbour Hotel

Christina’s elegant and pretty wedding took place at the Salcombe Harbour Hotel in May. This is such an impressive location, with breathtaking views across the Salcombe estuary so I set my make-up chair up by the window to take advantage of all the natural light flowing in and so that Christina could enjoy the view across the water while she had her make-up applied.

Christina wanted a natural timeless look for the day with slightly defined eyes but overall not too much makeup. She has an olive skin tone and nothing looks better on olive colouring than deep shades of warm colours like chocolate browns, earthy tones and gold’s. So we chose a soft smokey eye using browns and gold’s and lots of lashes to frame her eyes. Then on the cheeks and lips we used rose tones to add a subtle pop of colour.

I never leave until the bride is in her dress partly because I like to be on hand for final lipstick touchups and also because I love seeing the whole look come together. Christina wore a Ritva Westenius wedding dress and I loved the clean lines of this gown. The overall look was really classic and elegant.

After the wedding Christina wrote me this review:

“So pleased with the make up for my wedding. Eve is so professional and such a lovely person to have helping me to get ready. I couldn’t recommend her enough!”
