Hair and Makeup Wedding Tori Harris London

Stunning Wedding Hair Tutorial

Revisiting this stunning hair tutorial today!

This is the look I created for the Glitzy Secrets campaign - absolutely adore this stunning, natural look.

How To:

Step 1: Find your parting and section the hair into four sections. Pin the two sides – from the hairline to just behind the ear – and the top half of the back.

Step 2: Tie the remaining hair – the lower section of the back – into a low ponytail.

Step 3: Curl the hair in the ponytail with GHD’s, spray with Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray and backcomb from the tip of the hair to the root to create the stuffing. Pin up into a bun shape.

Step 4: Take the top section of the hair and curl individual sections – gently backcomb the roots and lightly pin into place covering the bun section. I used pins in the middle to hold the height on top.

Step 5: Take the side sections and curl small 1 inch (2.5cm) sections, lightly tease the roots and then pin over the pins from the previous step. Leave the ends of the curls out.

Step 6: Pin in the ends of each of the curls, covering any remaining areas where you can still see the ‘stuffing’.

Step 7: Loosely curl the front sections to finish the look.

Brand Shoot Hair & Makeup – Corporate Hair & Makeup

Hair and Makeup for Headshots

Brand shoots are increasingly popular within the wedding industry right now and I can see why - more personal then an old fashioned headshot I am a huge fan.  At The Boutique - our bridal shopping destination in Fulham we had amazing wedding planner Louise Perry and her right hand lady Natalie visit us on Tuesday to have some great new shots taken in our beautiful wedding surroundings.  Wedding photographer Guy Collier was here to take the photographs and videographers White Dress Films here to shoot the promo video - phew, what a busy day!  Mrs Jones Tea - our resident caterer here at The Boutique supplied a delicious afternoon tea - of which we're still eating the leftovers!  I did hair and makeup for both ladies which was a real pleasure having worked with so many of their brides over the years. 

Engagment Hair Tutorial

Want a glam hairstyle for your engagement celebrations but want to do it yourself?

This is a super easy up do to master and we absolutely adore this stunning, natural look.

How To:

Step 1: Start by brushing out your hair and lightly straightening if it's curly.  You want it to be sleek but still packed with volume!

Step 2: Find your parting at the front and run it back as far as seems natural to you. 

Step 3: From the end of your parting run a pin tail comb down to behind your ear to create the front section and pin out of the way. Repeat for the other side of your hair.

Step 4: At the back tie this section into a pony tail and lightly tease out.  Plait the pony tail and secure with another band.

Step 5: Plait the two side sections. 

Step 6: Hold the very tip on the plait and push the hair up to loosen the plait. Repeat on all 3 plaits.

Step 7: Pin up the hair making sure you tuck in the ends of the plaits - you can curl any loose puts to help them blend in. 

Glowing Makeup Tutorial – Natural Bridal Beauty.

Revisiting this stunning makeup tutorial today!

This is the look I created for the Glitzy Secrets campaign - absolutely adore this stunning, natural look.

How To:

Step 1: Start by prepping the skin using your usual cleanser and moisturizer. For a long lasting look ensure you use a primer.

Step 2: Tori used Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation for a light and natural finish before going in with concealer for more coverage where needed. She applied Touché Éclat under the eyes and finished with MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Powder.

Step 3: To shape the face Tori defined Amy’s brows with a clear brow gel before using a light brown powder to slightly define them. On the eyes she used Illamasqua cream eye-shadow – Vintage Metallix in Courtier to create a shimmery base and a highlighter in the corner.

Step 4: To finish the eye-shadow Tori blended MAC Woodwinked into the outer corners creating a soft, golden shimmer. She also blended a little Woodwinked in under the eyes.

Step 5: As Tori wanted Amy’s eyes to be naturally defined she used a soft brush to blend a little of Bobbi Brown’s Gel Liner in Sepia along the lash line. For full and defined lashes she used plenty of mascara and then topped up with individual lashes from Eylure.

Step 6: To warm up the skin Tori used MAC So Sweet So Easy Cremeblend Blusher on the apples of the cheeks and then a light dusting of Benefit Coralista to finish. To create a soft dewy look she added Illamasqua Gleam in Auroa to the cheeks and under the eyebrows.

Step 7: To finish the look Tori used MAC lipstick in Angel.
