Loverly x Tartan Fairytales


Hey lovlies, something a little different today from us - a joint post!

We were inspired by the gorgeous dresses from Lover.ly and thought that we could match some makeup looks to the dresses!

Lover.ly is a website with everything you could possibly need to help plan a wedding!
Bridal gowns, bridesmaid dresses - all in the one place! You can check them out here and they even have a free app which so you can plan on the go, you can get that here!

I can tell you now, Gemma & I had way too much fun looking at all the gorgeous dresses, and now want about 10 of them.


Laura is right there! I was looking through all these gorgeous dresses thinking 'Oh I want that for mines!' then 'Oh no it has to be this one!' and I'm not even close to being engaged never mind married. But hey a gal can dream right! The first dress I picked was this stunning strapless, mermaid lace dress.


This is definitely a dress I could see myself wearing on the big day! So simply stunning however still breathtaking! As a make-up artist my imagination started going wild. So many options for this dress. However I opted to go for a slightly vintage look for this dress.


With the vintage look in mind, for this dress I am going for a bright red lip paired with gel liner that will be winged out. Either subtly or extreme! To add a little something extra to deepen the look I chose Eylure eyelashes to be applied. My personal favourites are Nadine Coyle's pair. Then finally to add some colour to the cheeks I would use a bronzer to add a slight contour!




The first dress I picked is a gorgeous lace number too! Only my one isn't strapless, the colour is beautiful but i'm struggling to decide on one single colour... Ivory/Gold/Bronze! The website says Ivory/Bronze, so we will go with that...



Which is quite fitting, because the look i've chosen to go with here, is a gold/bronze look, topped off with a nude/light pink lip! This dress is absolutely gorgeous, and definitely something I could see myself wearing! 


The second dress I chose is this stunning Oscar De La Renta gown. My favourite EVER wedding dress designer, all thanks to 'Say Yes To The Dress' and 'I Found The Gown'! I wanted to chose a dress that had colour in it. Even though I probably would never pick a wedding dress with colour in it myself, they are stunning! R.I.P Oscar, you will definitely be missed.


For this dress, most people would probably go for really casual and plain make-up. However I have slightly went the opposite way! For the eyes I would do a slightly smokey taupe eye, like the colours in the nars duo below. Then lined with grey eyeliner that would be smudged out, both on the upper and lower lash line. As it is basically a high couture gown, I would also do a strong contour and highlight on the cheeks, think Kim Kardashian! Then round it all of with a stunning nude lip. 



My second dress is a Monique Lhuillier gown, a stunning white, strapless lace dress. I really love this dress and think with a classic look, and a gorge veil, it'd all tie together perfectly!


Like I said above, I think a classic look would compliment this dress perfectly! So, have opted for some winged eyeliner, a good strong brow and a classic red lip!



So guys that is how we would do our make up for these wedding dresses. What do you think about them? 
Would you have done anything different? Let us know!

Also remember to check out the amazing Lover.ly website here! It was an absolute pleasure to work with these guys!

Until next time guys, lots of love!
