Hen Parties

Looking For Cool Hen Party Ideas?

If you have a wedding coming up, or you’re looking for some new Hen Party ideas, why not go for something a little bit different, something with a touch of style and class?

Not every bride wants L-plates, tu-tu’s and sparkly cowboy hats on her hen night!

If you’re looking for a way to get the hen party going with a swing, but are stuck for ideas, why not start by preparing yourselves for an evening of glitz and glamour!

Hen Party Ideas – Get Pampered!

One great Hen Party idea is to hire a professional make up artist and a photographer for the evening. The Bride and her Hens can be pampered with all sorts of beauty treatments, including spray tans, manicures, pedicures, hair styling and finally, a glamorous expert make up. Then, the photographer can capture the final result with a series of beautiful portraits, or even boudoir style images, to keep as a long-lasting memory of the occasion.

Hen Party Ideas  – Hollywood Glamour!

The evening could even be themed, for instance, vintage styling for hair and make-up, like burlesque star Dita Von Teese. Or, maybe going all-out on the 1940’s Hollywood film star glamour, being made-up to look like Marilyn Monroe.

This can all be done as a great way to get ready for the big night out, so that you’ll be sure to be the best looking bunch of “Hens” in town. Or, you can make it the focus of a luxurious “girls night in”. Either way, it will be a night to remember!

Hen Party Ideas – Make Up Lessons

Or what about a make up lesson for the bride and her Hens. Essential if you are getting married abroad and will be doing your own make up. You will learn all the tricks of the trade from a professional make up artist, teaching you the secrets of perfect application. From how to choose the right foundation and achieve a flawless complexion, to how to get that sensual “smoky eye” look.

“We had a real chance to catch up and be girlie but still got to let our hair down and have a little party too!!!”

 “I really wanted to do something a bit nice for my hen party. No tacky L plates for me, it’s just not my thing! The make-up artist did a great job and we had a lovely evening, being pampered and felt very glamorous”

 

If you want a pampering makeover party, a group make up lesson, or you have your own unique hen party ideas, then contact Make Up Artist London.

Bridal Hair & Make Up

Make Up Artist London – The Specialists in Bridal Hair and Make Up

Every bride wants to look beautiful on her wedding day. It’s only natural to want your husband-to-be to think “Wow!” when he sees you walk down the aisle.

And, let’s not forget, your wedding day will be captured for posterity in your photos, so it’s more important than ever to look your best – all day long.

A professional wedding make up artist will know the tricks of the trade to make you look great, not only in the flesh, but also in the photos.

Bridal Hair and Make Up is a careful balancing act – looking naturally beautiful, without appearing washed out.

Flash photography emphasizes pink tones in the skin, so a foundation with a slightly yellow tone is advisable.

Nude and pale lip colours look washed out in photographs, so a wedding make up artist may choose a lipstick that’s one to two shades deeper than what you’d normally wear. Pinks, roses, and plums are great choices for bridal make up.

When getting quotes for bridal hair and make up, check what is included in the price. Does it include a trial run? Can they do your bridesmaids and Mother-of-the-Bride’s make up too? Do they provide an “All-Day” service, which includes hair and make up re-touches before the photographs, and a re-style for the evening?

Bridal Hair and Make Up – The Trial Run!

Why is it important to have a trial run before the wedding?  You’ll want to look really special on your wedding day, but this is not the day to be experimenting with completely new looks. This is a day to make yourself look the very best version of you. Your wedding day is probably one of the most expensive days of your life, so when it comes to your bridal hair and make up, you don’t want to take any gambles, and risk hating the way you look in the photos for the next 20 years!

We recommend that you to take a picture of your dress to your wedding hair and make up trial, as well as any headpieces, tiaras, combs, or veils. It’s essential for your make up artist to see your overall look.

Also, take photos of each different look your make up artist comes up with, making sure you take every angle, so you can have a think at home about which look you like best.

Bridal Hair and Make Up – The Wedding Day!

Make sure you leave yourself plenty of time to get ready. However long you think it might take – double it! Remember, the more of you there are, the longer it will take. Up-dos take longer than a blow-dry. And, as obvious as it might seem, make sure you, the bride, take priority. You don’t want to be flustered and rushing to get ready!

If you have lots of bridesmaids, it is best to have at least 2 hair and make up artists, so you can all be styled at the same time. Allow at least 1 hour 30mins for bridal hair and make up, and 45 minutes each for the bridesmaids and Mother-of-the-Bride.

You’re all ready for the big day. You’re wearing your dream dress, your hair and make up are done to perfection. You look stunning, and your Mr Right is waiting for you. Now, all you have to do is walk down the aisle towards him, and wait for that “Wow”!

Eye Make Up

If there is one eye make up product which can strike fear in girls everywhere……….it’s eyeliner!

It can be confusing. Should the line be thick? Thin? Liquid? Khol?

It really is a case of practice make perfect.

The truth is everyone’s eye shapes differ, so there really are no set rules on how you should wear your eyeliner….(I’ll be back with a full article when I have time 🙂

Make Up Lesson Scam

Warning!

Many so called “Make Up Artist Lessons” are cleverly concealed promos to get you to buy loads of the fantastic products that have just been demonstrated!! Phrases like this are common….

“A full range of “”””Superswish”””” make-up and skin products are available to try and buy from your image consultant during your make-up lesson…”

In other words, the advice you’ve been given may well have been geared to the expensive products they’ll encourage you to buy later on…..ouch!

At a Make Up Lesson with Make Up Artist London, we guarantee we do not promo any product! That’s not our style…

But – we’ll gladly tell you what we think is best for you. Whether it’s from Stila, MAC or Primark – if we think it’s good, we’ll tell you.

Glam Look

Many ladies (and even guys!) have been applying their make up the same way for years. – even though it looks unnatural or is simply a mess!

Do they  believe they need a Make Up Lesson? Not for a second! They learned how to do it when they were teenagers by copying the style of the pop and film stars of the day, or from their friends.

And they’ve been doing it the same way ever since!

It’s the same for many teenagers today. They see their favourite celebrities looking ultra glam in the magazines and on TV and try to copy their style. But, unless you know what products to use and how to apply them, it can easily look harsh and overdone.

And the ‘glam’look of the celebs has been done by…..a make up artist!

Applying Make Up

Sad to say but we meet many ladies, young and old, who have been using the wrong makeup, applying it badly and in the wrong order.

(And doesn’t that have a ring of the old Morecambe & Wise classic line to Andre Previn of ‘I’ve been paying all the right notes – but not necessarily in the right order’ – apologies to you young ladies who won’t know what we’re referring to!)

Not to mention spending fortunes on expensive products that, very often, are simply a waste of money.

Applying Make Up correctly is a technique. And learning how to do it correctly is priceless for ladies who want to look sensational without spending lots of money, and lots of time in front of a mirror!

Look at this way ladies – the guys think nothing of going to the golf pro for six lessons to sort out their putting technique – so I reckon the gals are entitled to invest in looking good!
