It was lots of fun to do Karina’s bridal makeup and hair at her home in Didsbury, for her wedding at Capesthorne Hall in Cheshire. Her theme was Rat-Pack era Hollywood glamour so she wanted a modern twist on a 1940s style to go with her beautiful, vintage-style dress.
After trying a few different styles based on the mood board she’d created, Karina decided on a low, tousled bun sitting on the nape of her neck, with lots of soft curls around her face. The overall look is pretty and romantic, just like her dress and flowers. We used the roses in her bouquet as inspiration for her makeup, using rosy pinks on her eyes and cheeks with a brighter pink on her lips. I gave her some classic 1940s eyeliner flicks to finish off the vintage look.
