The Fall: The Hair.


A Bridal Hair Tutorial Showing Brides How To Create Perfect Tousled Sexy Waves and A Boho Braided Updo For Your Wedding Day.cover  The Fall: The Hair.


If you stopped by the blog last Monday afternoon you’ll have seen our super easy but oh so covetable smokey eye and bold berry lip beauty tutorial. If so, then you’ll also be aware that we made a solemn promise to also share with you lovelies how to recreate the beautiful hairstyles from our most recent piece of editorial – The Fall.

And so, without further ado I’m going to pass you over to the talented Claire Salter who will walk you through the necessary steps to achieve tousled perfection and bohemian braids for your big day and beyond.

Honestly folks I just know that you’ll love the two looks so much that you’ll be trying to recreate them for yourselves faster than you can say ‘two pronged curling tongs’.

Promise.

Tousled Perfection

Claire Salter: To create this sexy relaxed hair firstly you have to be relaxed yourself!

Don’t stress about waking up that extra hour or so on your big day to wash your hair. Hair that isn’t freshly washed styles much better so wash your locks the day before and then you can concentrate on your beauty sleep.

To create this look I used a Two Pronged Pearl Pro Styler by Remington; a handy tip is to use a heat protective glove this allows you to wrap the hair right around the barrel without burning your fingers.

Firstly section the hair around the base leaving about an inch section from ear to ear and then clip the rest out of the way.… View the full post.

The Fall: The Beauty


Cover Image quote2 The Fall: The Beauty


For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to be a redhead complete with freckles – a kind of chic, upmarket Pippi Longstocking if you will. Unfortunately Mother Nature did not bless me with such a stellar aesthetic but this hasn’t deterred me from appreciating such a beautiful combination in other folks. This may also explain my teeny tiny obsession with Mr Eddie Redmayne.

Ahem.

Moving on.

It was perhaps obvious then that I would choose a titian beauty for the first piece of Rock My Wedding editorial that I would direct. I mean how could I not, especially for a season so resplendent with flaming colours. It was also really important to me to push the boundaries a little bit when it came to the beauty looks on this shoot…a little bit less bridal, a little bit more edgy.

It was a risk but you folks loved it…especially THAT berry lip.

We guessed that you lovely lot would adore Abigail’s beautiful smokey eye and stained berry lip as much as we did so we’ve asked the super talented Claire Salter who created the beauty for us on our latest editorial shoot to share her product recommendations and tips for creating the whole “The Fall” look.

Let us know if you are going to give it a whirl lovelies.

Autumn Berry Lips

Claire Salter: This look was all about creating a dewy look for the skin combined with an Autumnal berry strong lip. Here are a few guiders and tips to recreate it for yourself:

The key to any long lasting look is a well applied base.… View the full post.

Coping With Eczema & Reactive Skin On W-day.

Or any day for that matter.

Now before I begin I want to make it clear that I am not a doctor, or a dermatologist, or that I in any way regard myself as a skincare specialist. If you do suffer from a skin complaint that is affecting your confidence and/or well-being then you should at first consult your GP and if from the relevant recommendations and/or prescriptions you are still not happy with the results then request a referral to a dermatologist. It could be that you are suffering from an allergic reaction and patch tests might be an option.

What I am is a sufferer (some 30-odd years as it happens) so what I can share is what I use to manage the condition effectively and what I avoid to prevent future flare ups. This is obviously personal to my experience and my rather diva-ish epidermis, I invite anyone else who has any advice, queries or recommendations to drop a note in the comments box at the bottom of this post.

You may also have noticed that we are testing out a little bit of new functionality with this particular feature, the top image is in fact A SLIDER GALLERY, you can peruse (and pin) all of the beauty stuffs mentioned below, do let us know what you think!

Who Cares If It Rains?!

Nope. I didn’t give two hoots about the weather on the day I was going to say I do. I was just concerned I would end up with sore flaky red patches, puffy swollen eyelids and lips so dry they split at the sides and I resemble the joker from batman.… View the full post.
