Wedding Makeup for Mature Brides

I love creating wedding makeup and bridal hairstyles for my mature brides and older ladies. So whether I’m working with the bride, mother of the bride or mother of the groom, it’s always a pleasure.

It’s undeniable fact that as we get older, our hair and skin changes.

So it is essential that your bridal hairstylist and wedding makeup artist is used to working with mature skin.

They will have to have the right knowledge and techniques to know how to get the best results.

As we approach menopause things definitely start to change.

So even if your hair is thinning or you’re in the midst of hot flushes, don’t worry – I understand!

From selecting the right products to showing you a variety of different hair styles, I know just how to make my mature brides look and feel amazing!

Whether you are a mature bride or mother of the bride or mother of the groom, there is no time limit for the trial run.

This means you’ll be able to try different looks for both wedding hair and bridal makeup.

I normally hate having my photo taken you did my hair and makeup exactly how I had hoped. It made me feel so much more relaxed and confident on the day!!

Chat to your makeup artist before the trial run so you can get a feel for the way she works.

You might want to wear your hair up or down, as we age our hair tends to get thinner and can become a bit coarser.

It’s all in the prep

Your wedding hair stylist may opt for a blow dry, curling tongs or even heated rollers. I confess – I do love a heated roller – you’ll get root lift, oomph and a gorgeous sexy va va room to your wedding day hair style.

Don’t be in a Rush
