Winter Wedding Bride Vintage Style

Vintage Hollywood Style Bride

Loved working with our stunning vintage-styled winter wedding  bride Hannah from South Wales.

If you’re a winter bride to be, here’s some fabulous retro beauty inspiration for your special day.

Hannah and her now husband Mark married at the wonderful Rose Dew Farm located on the stunning heritage coast of  South Wales.

Vintage Hollywood style bride

Vintage Hollywood-glamour inspired our beautiful South Wales Bride Hannah on her winter wedding day.

Hannah is a gorgeous brunette with classic porcelain skin. She loves all things vintage and the golden era of Hollywood glamour. So it was only natural that she chose vintage inspired hair and makeup for her beautiful rustic, vintage-inspired wedding.

I loved her attention to detail and adored her 1940’s inspired nails. They worked perfectly with her vintage Hollywood winter wedding theme.

Winter Wedding Bride – Hollywood Style

If you want to feel like a movie star as winter wedding bride then go for the classic sophistication and timeless elegance of a Hollywood screen siren.

Choose luxurious foundations infused with subtle illuminators or mix your favourite with Charlotte Tilbury WonderGlow to give you that radiant Hollywood glow.

Classic red lips give you instant Hollywood screen goddess glamour. Precise application is essential to perfect your pout. So use a lip liner combined with a statement red lipstick with a stain finish like Rouge Dior Couture in Red Smile.

Vintage Hollywood wedding hair

Soft romantic Hollywood style curls with a pin up style of the 1940’s for our vintage inspired winter wedding bride Hannah

Keep the drama in your lips and opt for a barely-there cheek tint with just a hint of colour. Finish with a smooth slick of black eyeliner above your top lashes.

Complete your Hollywood bridal look with soft, bouncy waves. Set your hair with a deep side parting using Percy and Reeds Abundantly Bouncy Volumising Mousse. Curl using heated rollers or hot tong individual sections of your hair. Then pin in place and leave your hair to cool for at least 15 minutes.

Gently brush through your long soft waves and spritz with shine spray. Then sweep the hair up at one side with a jewel encrusted hair accessory. This will give you the perfect Hollywood bridal look for your special day.

Hot and sticky environments combined with wedding nerves put your makeup under pressure on the day. You need ‘melt-proof’ formulas and oil free beauty products that stay put in a heatwave.

Choose your beauty products wisely or you’ll end up looking more ‘radio active’ rather than radiant bride-to-be.

7 TOP TIPS to Find the Best Wedding Makeup Artist

Find the best wedding makeup artist

So ow do you find the best wedding makeup artist for your wedding day?

A professional wedding makeup artist will transform you and make you look truly beautiful on your wedding day.

The right makeup artist is highly experienced and has the talent and expertise to make you look like a super star.

What you don’t want is someone just out of beauty school practising their skills on your face, on the most important day of your life.

screenshot-39-1

So how do you find the BEST wedding makeup artist for you?

 

1.     DO YOUR RESEARCH

 

The secret to booking the best wedding makeup artist is to treat it like an interview. You need to do your homework and ask the right questions, so you can book the best professional for you.

Typing in ‘best wedding makeup artist’ in Google is no guarantee that you’ll find the best. You need to do some legwork.

Search for makeup artists in your area but be prepared to also go further afield if you don’t find a local artist that excites you. Read forums, check testimonials and ask your friends and family for recommendations.

 

2.     LOOK AT MAKEUP ARTIST PORTFOLIOS

 

Look closely at wedding makeup artist portfolios and search for those with a wide variety of looks. You don’t want a ‘cookie cutter’ makeup artist who only does one look for all the brides she works with.

If every bride’s skin is the same colour and they all have heavy ‘#instabrows’, then that’s a red flag and a sign that makeup artist might not be for you.

 

3.     BOOK YOUR MAKEUP ARTIST EARLY

 

Contrary to popular belief you need to book your wedding makeup artist sooner rather than later.

Some wedding makeup artists will tell you to book as late as six to eight weeks before your wedding day. That’s really cutting it fine and you’ll be in real trouble if you don’t like how they make you look.

So draw up a list of two or three of your favourite makeup artists and then check their availability as soon as possible.

And NEVER be pressurised into booking your wedding day makeup artist before you’ve had your trial.

find a wedding makeup artist with a wide variety of styles

Look at wedding makeup artist portfolios for a wide variety of bridal makeup styles

 

4.     ALWAYS HAVE A WEDDING MAKEUP TRIAL

 

This is not the time to cut corners. Always invest in having a makeup trial before booking a makeup artist for your wedding day.

It’s worth spending more to find a professional makeup artist who has the skills and products to ensure you look perfect on your wedding day.

Your makeup artist will be spending your wedding morning with you.  So you want to find someone who is warm and friendly whom you trust to make you look fabulous.

So be prepared to invest in more than one trial if you need to. You wouldn’t dream of only trying on one dress and sometimes it’s the same with your makeup artist.

 

5.     IF YOUR MAKEUP ARTIST ‘DOUBLE-DIPS’ RUN AWAY

 

A dirty makeup artist is a dangerous makeup artist.

Poor hygiene standards can cause the transfer of contagious infections such as herpes simplex, impetigo and conjunctivitis.

Take a close look at your makeup artist’s kit. Dirty makeup bags and smeared product residue is not conducive to good hygiene.

book you wedding makeup artist

Always check your makeup artist’s hygiene standards before you book them for your wedding day

The ultimate sin is if your makeup artist ‘double dips’. Once your artist has used a brush on your face they should NEVER return it to a makeup product without cleaning it first.

If your makeup artist doesn’t use a makeup brush cleaner then run away – as fast as you can

 

6.     CHECK YOUR MAKEUP ARTIST HAS A LIGHTING KIT

 

Pro makeup artists have pro lighting kits.

Lighting is crucial for your wedding day makeup. Stately homes and castle venues are often notoriously badly lit and natural daylight can be hard to come by in your hotel room.

Your makeup artist should be prepared with natural portable lighting, especially for early morning starts.

 

7.     GET A SCHEDULE FROM YOUR MAKEUP ARTIST

 

If you want everything to run smoothly on your special day make sure your makeup artist gives you a schedule.

You should be allowing up to two to three hours for the bride’s hair and makeup and between 45 mins to an hour per bridesmaid’s hair and makeup.

For larger bridal parties you also want to ensure your makeup artist has an associate they can bring to work with them to help get your favourite ladies get ready on your wedding day.

And ask them if they are willing to stay for last minute checks and touch ups before you leave to say ‘I Do’.

 

If you follow all these steps you’ll find the perfect wedding makeup artist for you and ensure you look your most beautiful on your wedding day.

Are you trying to resist on #worldchocolateday so you can fit into your wedding dress?

Well now there’s a chocolate that makes brides more beautiful the more they eat.

Cambridge beauty therapy chocolate will help give you that gorgeous bridal glow for your wedding day.

The more you eat the more radiant you look. If that sounds too good to be true then I don’t blame you – I was sceptical at first.

However the  Cambridge scientists who created it claim Esthechoc will also give you more defined, firmer skin as well as slow down the signs of aging.

o-esthechoc-facebook

ESTHECHOC – The Chocolate Every Bride Should Eat

They say that by eating one bar of the Cambridge beauty chocolate every day you will see visible signs within three weeks. Although it may be smaller than your usual favourite treat it packs a big nutritional punch.

Esthechoc is a delicious dark chocolate that is infused with very powerful plant extracts. According to the company one  7.5g bar of the beauty therapy chocolate also contains as much anti-inflammatory astaxanthin as a 300g serving of salmon.esthechoc

Participants in the clinical studies had improved blood supply to the skin which boosted oxgen to the skin and improved respiration.

All of that adds up to brighter, glowing skin which is perfect for brides looking for that gorgeous ‘lit from within’, natural glow on their wedding day.

Esthechoc won Best ‘Beauty From Within’ Award in 2016 and is now available to buy at Harrods and online at Dermacare Direct.

To celebrate the 1st Anniversary of  a charity that is very close to our hearts here at Coco Bella.

Pritchard & Moore is the first charity bridal boutique where ALL profits go directly to help fund life saving research at Cancer Research Wales.

Having lost my own beloved mother to that vicious disease I wanted to help support this charity.

As a bridal boutique it’s a perfect match for us at Coco Bella.

Bridal Designers such as Welsh designer Stephanie Allin, Ellis Bridal, Jonathan James and Ronald Joyce, to name but a few, have donated stunning wedding gowns to Pritchard & Moore.

It was also a chance to support the wonderful Alison George who manages the charity bridal boutique for Cancer Research Wales.

Alison is like the ‘bride whisperer’ – she can take one look at you and know exactly what gown would make you look fabulous.

She’s also hilariously funny and always makes me laugh.

Maxine knows how to capture every bride’s best angle on their wedding day.

Not only is Maxine super talented but she also has a wicked sense of humour.

It was her camera lens that captured these perfect moments.

We were blessed with a secret location on a fabulous farm in the heart of the Welsh Valleys.

We couldn’t have asked for a more gorgeous backdrop.

The lovely Lisa from The Urban Flower Studio  is one of the most creative and exciting florists in Wales.

She crafted the exquisite bridal bouquet, floral accessories and stunning garland for the horse.

Together the brilliant Love From Ellie and fantastic Lumi Event Design brought charming rustic bridal style to life, in the barn of this working farm and stable.

Both so original, beautiful and quirky – I especially adored the fabulous armchair.

How to Find the Perfect Foundation for Your Wedding Day

bridal-makeup-cocobella-3

How to find the perfect foundation for your wedding day.

So how do you know find the perfect foundation for your wedding day?

The prefect foundation will transform your skin on your wedding day. It will even out your skin tone, make you look radiant, hide any imperfections and give you a flawless natural look.

But how do you know which product is right for you and what actually works?

As a makeup artist I’ve tested hundreds and hundreds of products to find what delivers and looks flawless under HD cameras.

(And I’m not sponsored by any cosmetics companies so I’m not biased in any way.)

I know what works. I know which products give you outstanding results, do what they promise and live up to the high demands of your Wedding Day.

So this is my insider’s guide on how to find the perfect foundation for your wedding day.

Because you deserve to look and feel fabulous on your special day!

 

HOW TO FIND YOUR PERFECT FOUNDATION

Know your skin type

It’s crucial to get to know your skin and to remember that it changes from season to season, as well as over time.

The best way to figure out your skin type is to see how it feels after it’s freshly cleansed, but before you apply your moisturiser.

DRY SKIN

If your skin feels tight and a little uncomfortable then it’s very likely you have dry skin.  A hydrating foundation will benefit your skin tremendously.

You want to look dewy and glowing on your wedding day so a hydrating product is essential.

  • Chanel Vita Lumiere Foundation £33 – dewy and soft, very light but lovely hydrating foundationchanel-foundationBourjouis – Healthy Mix Serum Foundation £9.99 – this budget option looks great in daylight, gives radiance to your skin and is packed with vitamins

 

OILY SKIN

If your skin tends to look shiny and you have some larger, open pores then your skin is most likely oily.

An oil free, long wearing foundation will suit you and can help control and cover breakouts.

It needs ingredients that will work hard throughout your wedding day to prevent your makeup sliding off your face before you say I Do!

  • Clinique Pore Refining Foundation £25
  • Laura Mercier Silk Creme  Oil Free £35  (particularly excellent for acne suffers)
  • Laura Geller Balance and Brighten Baked Foundation £26

laura mericier oil free

 

 

 

 

 

SENSITIVE SKIN

Sensitive skin can range from dry to oily, but is prone to redness and can also be itchy or blotchy. You may also suffer from conditions such as rosacea and eczema.

A treatment foundation will help soothe your skin and keep redness at bay so you have the perfect foundation on your Wedding Day.

  • Dr Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation £45 – a treatment foundation packed with vitamin C, airy light, giving you beautiful skin
  • Oxygenetix £38 – created in partnership with dermatologists this foundation is remarkably healing

MATURE SKIN

You may feel your skin has lost its natural radiance and laughter lines seem much more pronounced. Hormonal changes can wreak havoc and you may have discolouration and pigmentation as well as an uneven skin tone.

It’s definitely worth investing in foundations with high performance, active ingredients that restore a youthful glow to the skin and have rejuvenating, added skincare benefits.

  • Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation £29.50 – magic in a bottle for softening lines and blurring imperfections
  • Joan Collins £25 – skincare and makeup in one giving a light veil of soft coverage which is very buildable
  • Dior Skin Star Foundation £32 – active skincare and ultimate radiance in one for a beautiful youthful glow

Diorskin-Star-Foundation

 

Test your foundation in natural daylight

It’s vital that you see what the foundation looks like on your skin in natural daylight. Especially f you’re in the middle of a department store at a makeup counter.  The lighting will not give a true reflection of how that foundation looks on your skin.

So don’t be afraid to ask for a sample. Most cosmetics counter staff are very experienced and want you to find a perfect match.

So be bold and ask.

At the very least take a swatch of the product on your skin. Then step outside and have a close look with a mirror in daylight.

 

Match your foundation to your neck

Place some foundation along your jaw line and down your neck. It should blend seamlessly.

There should be NO tell-tale tide mark on your neck

Try a couple of shades alongside each other to compare which truly matches your skin perfectly.

Allow the foundation to settle on your skin for five or ten minutes. Some foundations have a tendency to change colour once on your skin, so give it time and check if it’s still a perfect match.

If this sounds like a lot of effort just remember, it will prevent you from risking looking the colour of an ‘oompa lumpa’ on your special day. And help you avoid making an expensive mistake.

 

Use a high performance primer

Primers are a godsend.

A great primer acts like a base coat smoothing out any imperfections. They help create a perfect canvass on which to apply your foundation, so you look flawless and  help your makeup last all day.

  • Cosmetics a la Carte Rose Dew £39

A wonderful cream primer that’s non greasy but leaves skin perfected – allow to settle on skin for five minutes before applying your foundation.

  • Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance £29

laura mercier

Created by the legendary makeup artist this primer is one of my personal favourites. It gives the skin an almost ethereal glow and makes your skin feel wonderful.

  • Becca Ever Matt Poreless Priming Perfector  £28

Instantly absorbs excess sebum on oilier skins, refines open pores making them almost invisible, lightweight on your skin but leaves it feeling velvet soft.

 

Apply in fine layers

On your wedding morning after you’ve cleansed and moisturized and prepared your skin with a great primer then you’re ready to apply your foundation.

The absolute key to a flawless look is to apply a little in a very fine layer and to blend it seamlessly into your skin.

You can apply your foundation using your fingers. Pour a few drops into the palm of your hand – your natural body heat will help warm the product and this helps enhance a smooth application.

Dot your foundation on your T zone first – the central part of your face -forehead, nose and chin. Apply lightly and sparingly with your finger tips.

 

And blend to perfection

Then begin to massage with gentle strokes blending to the outer planes of your face, almost as you would your moisturiser.

It should naturally disappear as you meet your jaw line.

Now take a soft synthetic brush and gently buff your foundation moving in soft circular motions, again from the centre of your face outwards, creating a flawless finish.

If you want more coverage, then apply a little more, sparingly to those areas where you feel you need it, blending with finger tips and then buff again with your brush.

Your skin will look soft, radiant and beautifully perfected.

HIRE A PROFESSIONAL ON YOUR WEDDING DAY

Most brides want to relax on their special day and know they simply don’t have to worry about their makeup because they are in the hands of a professional.

If you truly want your makeup to last till the very last dance on your wedding day then you need aa makeup artist to apply it for you. It truly is worth the investment and you will benefit from our expertise and high performance products.

So get in touch today and let us make you look and feel truly fabulous on your wedding day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How to get Beautiful Hair on Your Wedding Day with Hair Extensions

Beautiful blond woman in image of the bride with flowers. Beauty face and Hairstyle. Picture taken in the studio

Hair extensions can be a bride’s best friend.

If you’re dreaming of long luscious locks on your wedding day but your hair is more ‘blah’ than a wet Sunday then it’s time to consider hair extensions.

Extensions give you longer, thicker, fuller hair that looks completely natural and gives you so many more OPTIONS and choice for your wedding day hair style.

As well as adding length they are also a terrific way to add volume and body to fine and thinning hair and they work for all face shapes and all ages.

And depending upon the type of extension you choose you can have stunning long hair for your hen night, your wedding day and your honeymoon as well as for up to 6 months after your big day.

You just need to know your ‘wefts from your clip-ins’ and with a little insider knowledge you can get your dream bridal hair style for your wedding day.

Hair Extensions can be a bride's best friend in your quest for the perfect bridal hair style

TEMPORARY HAIR EXTENSIONS

  • Human Clip-in Hair

Clip in extensions are temporary and just as the name suggests they can be clipped into your own hair whenever you like.They are ideal for your wedding day if you don’t want the commitment of longer-wear fitted extensions.

It’s important to choose the right bridal hair stylist who’s experienced with fitting extensions to avoid the tell-tale bumps in the hair that can be caused by the extension clips.

You need to choose a bridal stylist that can place your clip in extensions strategically, just where you need them for your individual bridal style, to create length and thickness that looks natural.

You need to match your clip in hair extensions to your own natural hair shade. If you are looking to change colour then do so before you purchase your clip in extensions in order to get a true match.

Curled and waved styles are perfect for blending your clip in extensions with your natural hair and look beautiful on your wedding day.

Coco Bella Bride offers you a bespoke and couture range of clip in extensions that are individually tailored to your natural hair and your bridal hair style for your special day.

 

  • Synthetic Hair

There are more affordable synthetic options but you have to choose carefully as most do not tolerate heated styling over 120 degrees.

Synthetic hair tends to be the more detectable and can sometimes be difficult to blend with your natural hair.

Hair Extensions offer your endless choice for your bridal hair style.

Hair Extensions offer your endless choice for your bridal hair style.

SEMI- PERMANENT HAIR EXTENSIONS

Semi permanent hair extensions are more discreet and virtually undetectable, long-lasting and can be styled just like your own natural hair.

Semi-permanent hair extensions are applied to your own hair ‘strand by strand’ and last for many months with the right  aftercare. They give you endless choice when choosing your perfect bridal style for your wedding day.

NEVER skimp on the quality of hair you buy or the fee for an experienced professional to fit your hair extensions.

ALWAYS have a consultation to decide which method of application is best for your hair type and lifestyle.

Do your research as there are an awful lot of people out there who are not qualified hairdressers and have taken a one day course and are advertising their ‘services’ – you want to avoid them at all costs!

Hair Extensions give you extra length, fullness and volume for your wedding day

Hair Extensions give you extra length, fullness and volume for the perfect bridal style on your wedding day

When should I have my semi-permanent wedding hair extensions fitted?

Ideally 2-3 weeks prior to the wedding day.

This will also give you time to get used to wearing them and caring for them

If you are planning to have colour make sure you have that done first so that your hair extension specialist can do a perfect colour match for your.

Extensions do take extra effort but Coco Bella Hair extensions will last up to 8 months with the right products and maintenance. And you will get a tailored plan for aftercare from Coco Bella with everything you need to keep your hair looking fabulous during your honeymoon and long after.

How much will it cost?

The price will depend upon the amount and length of hair extensions you will need to create your bridal hair style.  We will create a bespoke plan for you with a tailored guide to best type of extensions for you so you can have the beautiful bridal hair style of your dreams on your wedding day.

Get Your Gorgeous Bridal Glow with Airbrush Makeup

airbrush-temptu-1

Get your gorgeous bridal glow with the secret weapon of Hollywood ‘A-listers’ and professional makeup artists – airbrush makeup

It gives you flawless, radiant looking skin without ever looking heavy or ‘caked on’.

Instead of being applied with makeup brushes or sponges, airbrush makeup is sprayed onto your skin. Microscopic particles of makeup form a fine mist which gently covers the surface of your skin, giving you a perfect complexion.

temptu-coco-bella

Coco Bella Bride uses global brand leader in airbrush makeup – Temptu -favoured by Hollywood ‘A-listers’ and pro makeup artists alike.

 

The application is so fine that airbrush makeup is used under Hollywood HD cameras (which show any flaw or imperfection, no matter how small) and creates a ‘soft-focus’ effect on your skin..

Airbrush makeup looks like a second skin and photographs beautifully, but feels super light as if you’re not wearing any makeup.

It is also a godsend for more mature skin as unlike traditional foundations it doesn’t settle in fines lines or open pores but instead creates a flawless, almost invisible smooth layer on the surface of your skin.

Temptu - global leader in airbrush makeup

Coco Bella Bride will custom blend the perfect Temptu Airbrush shade for you.

As well as being touch proof and kiss proof it’s also waterproof – so it’s going to stay put no matter what you get up to on your Wedding Day.

Just remember to blot those tears with a tissue rather than wiping or rubbing.

At Coco Bella Bride we use airbrush makeup global brand leader Temptu.

Temptu airbrush makeup has a sheer texture but it is also easy to build coverage with less product.  And unless your skin is especially oily, most skin types will not need to be set with powder after an airbrush makeup application.

It is important that you gently exfoliate and moisturise your skin regularly in the run up to your wedding day, as this is essential to create a great base for you airbrush makeup application.

But you can be confident you will have that beautiful bridal glow that will last all day with airbrush makeup.

TOP BRIDAL HAIR TIPS

  • Don’t leave your Bridal Hair Styling Trial to the last minute.

Appointments fill up fast especially during the summer months. You want to make sure you leave enough time to get your hair looking fabulous in the run up to your wedding.

 

  • Don’t opt for a high trend style that doesn’t reflect the real you.

The last thing you want is HAIR REGRET on you wedding day. By all means don’t be afraid to experiment but not the week before your big day! Those wedding photos will be with you for the rest of your life – make sure you love the way you look before you commit to a drastic cut. You want to look like the best version of yourself on your wedding day.

And your husband or wife to be should still recognise you as you walk towards them!

 

  • Regular, long term treatments are essential to get your hair in peak condition.

If you want gorgeous, glossy hair for your special day then you need to start taking care of it now. Invest in quality products that are tailored precisely to your hair type that will deliver the results you want. It really is worth the investment in professional products that will do wonders for your hair condition as well as making blow drying and styling easier for you.

  • No last minute colour changes

Never opt for a dramatic colour change at the last minute before your wedding. If you hate it you will regret it and it will ruin your day. Instead start experimenting EARLY with colour. You CAN go from dark to blonde if your heart desires – just do it the right way with a professional and with care for your hair condition along the way.

You can have the bridal hair style of your dreams with Coco Bella Bride and with plenty of planning and our professional hair care.
