How to achieve a natural wedding make-up look
16 Jan 2018
Penny Pascoe of Make-up Artist Cornwall details why natural make-up is here to stay for 2018 and how brides and mothers of the bride and groom can achieve the look
From mineral make-up to beauty products featuring natural ingredients, we are seeing a continued preference for more skin-friendly and eco-conscious cosmetics. Allowing your natural beauty to shine through, these products are perfectly poised to enhance what you already have rather than mask your true beauty. As such, the natural make-up look will always prove popular as it offers an honest reflection of your daily appearance and will help you to feel comfortable on the big day.
Make-up artist Penny Pascoe is based in Cornwall and has 12 years of experience in the industry. Penny predicts that the natural look will be a firm favourite for 2018 and beyond and is a true advocate of natural beauty, continuously showing clients how they can look the best version of themselves with minimal effort. Using natural chemical-free products such as Tropic Skincare and Angel Face Mineral Cosmetics, alongside more well-known brands such as Urban Decay and Chanel, Penny demonstrates how a combination of these products can deliver a flawless, yet natural, look. Take a look at some of Penny’s transformations below.
Mineral make-up is one of Penny’s top beauty secrets. Made from natural ingredients, it ensures the skin is kept clean and healthy, minimising breakouts and blemishes by allowing the skin to ‘breathe’. Mineral make-up like Angel Face Mineral Cosmetics is light to wear and lasts all day and into the night yet still looks amazing. Penny says: “Even brides who do not regularly wear foundation/make-up are blown away by the product. I use this on each and every bridal party as well as on myself. I use Tropic Skincare as a moisturiser because it works brilliantly with Angel Face Mineral Cosmetics products.”
“This mineral make-up requires no primer as it works with the skin on direct application, settling into the pores and allowing the natural oils to come through, giving a youthful glow to the skin. It is amazing, even more so on mature skin. My mother of the bride clients adore the look it gives, especially when paired with a flattering and soft application of muted colours on the eye.”

Penny continues: “The eyes are so important in a makeover and once again I generally apply a natural look by blending different colours by Tropic Skincare and Urban Decay to create a subtle or a more dramatic look to suit my bride’s requirements.”
“Lashes are a brilliant way to open the eye for definition; I use a very light strip lash for a natural look or a fuller lash as required. One product I cannot work without is Blinc Mascara and Liner. It really is totally waterproof but amazingly it is removed with a water soaked pad.”
“The final application is the Finishing Powder by Angel Face Mineral Cosmetics which sets the make-up for the day and night.”
