Michelle & Chris

I am Michelle Jacobs, and I married my handsome groom Chris on a wintry afternoon last year. Jane Foster was recommended to me and was both friendly and professional. I booked a trial bridal makeup session along with my two bridesmaids and my mother.

We went to Jane’s salon for a consultation and trial makeup session. We took along pictures giving a look that we wanted, along with pictures of our wedding outfits. Jane suggested that all of us go with the theme of metallic makeup, not because I’m an edgy anti-bride, but the metallic shades had a soft, light-catching sheen and a radiant effect, perfect for a wintery day. On the day, the creamy eyeshadows looked more natural than powdered mattes, not creasing or fading, even on my mother’s older skin. We all had the rose-gold shade since we all have medium tone skin, which I wore over the entire lid for an expensive effect, whilst my bridesmaids and mother had the colour dabbed on the inner corners for an extra glint.

We all chose different neutral metallic lipsticks for a non-shiny, matte and velvety soft finish. The subtle glam, shine and glow shimmers stayed put for hours.
