What is your most memorable wedding?
A fabulous London based client hired the Facebar team for her two ceremonies which were taking place in New York and in Sicily. Our brides' brief was for us to create stunning, fresh, modern make-up looks for the actual ceremony days and also more glamorous looks for her evening receptions. Planning for the wedding begun a year before, where consultations took place where we designed and trialled several different makeup looks before the bride made her final decisions on the looks she wanted. We created mood boards, selected the best products for our bride to use and gave the bride a customised skincare regime to follow, including product recommendations for her to use in the crucial months leading up to the ceremony dates.
It was incredibly rewarding for us to be there to see our bride enjoying every moment of her two stunning ceremonies and a real pleasure for Facebar to create the make-up.

What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Get your skin looking amazing and you will look and therefore feel your very best on your special day!
But how? By drinking plenty of water (boring, but so true!), using the right skincare products and making sure that your skin is well hydrated (regardless of your skin type) - this is absolutely vital for achieving flawless and long-lasting makeup.
Our makeup artist secret tip is using Rodin Face Oil in the lead up to your wedding day, it is a must if you want gorgeous, glowing skin!
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
As professional makeup artists we are experts in making our clients feel fully relaxed from the moment they sit in our makeup chair. So whether our client is a model about to do a shoot or show, an actress who is about to walk the red carpet, a client going on a first date, or indeed a bride on her wedding day (yes, we know that this is probably the most nerve-racking event of them all!) we are able to relax our bride right from the off, beginning with our deeply relaxing facial massage which is followed by the light touch of our artists' brush, so by the time the bride looks in the mirror she knows she's physically and mentally ready to walk down that aisle!
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
Get your maid of honour to carry a mini-retouching makeup kit for you. This should include a few blotting papers to remove any shine from the t-zone, a few cup-tips and of course the lip colour / gloss you are wearing for a fast touch up - you'll be kissing lots of people and sipping champagne, so a little touch-up a few hours in is a good idea. All of these items can easily be carried in a small clutch.
