It's very easy as a makeup artist to fall into a pattern of applying the same makeup and using the same product on all clients. This however is a bad pattern to get into, as it is very important to realise that not all skin types are the same and not all products are going to perform the same and to their best ability when put on different skin.

I did a lot of research about which brushes to get. I needed quite a few brushes, but also didn't want to spend all my money on them.

I thought it would be interesting to see the journey I take in creating a makeup look from trial to wedding day. Below you can find photos from a recent bridal look I did on the lovely Lee. I have included photos from the trial, and a few pics of final product from the wedding day itself.
