This one’s a real favourite of mine! Smoky eye, contoured cheekbones and a nude lip, what’s not to love!!

This flawless, natural make up look enhances features by using very pale gold on eyes and soft corals on lips & cheeks

I’m a big fan of the Hollywood Glamour look!  To create this, embrace a classic red lip and focus on the brows and lashes.

This vintage look uses on trend copper tones and charcoal greys to define the eyes, with peach blusher and a russet brown lip colour.

Plummy red lipstick, pink blush and soft kohl on the eyes creates a classic contemporary look for this gorgeous bridesmaid.

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
