Here are a few images I took yesterday at the Oswestry Wedding Fair of our model Charlie who we styled in a 1960’s style, complete with bouffant, heavy liner, lashes and peachy hued cheeks. Image taken in the gorgeous original 60s campervan supplied by Split The Difference Vintage Campervan Hire.
Make-up used: Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation, Becca Backlight Primer, MAC Prep and Prime Powder, My Winkies Lashes – Lola, Milano Baked Blush, MAC Lipstick in Teddy, Anastasia Beverley Hills Highlighter.
I’ve been very busy with The Blusherettes lately, my vintage hair and makeup business which has been going from strength to strength since launching last year. My fellow Blusherette, Charlotte and I really wanted to showcase our signature style so we organised a 1960s-inspired shoot with some local suppliers and above are the results.
We wanted to capture the timeless romance and classical style of this iconic era, obviuosly this is helped by the hair and makeup but it’s the little details that we wanted to bring to it to show brides out there that you can be a modern girl and love vintage – it’s not fusty and dusty, it’s bright, chic and will never date!
We chose a dress that was reminiscent of something that would’ve been worn by the likes of Racquel Welch. Our model’s tiara also channels the period beautifully, and in the ‘after the wedding’ shots, she’s wearing items made from beautiful vintage fabrics that have been designed using 1950s and 60s style items as a template.
Of course the incidentals, like the beautiful bouquet in bright orange blooms, the gorgeous cake in fresh mint and white, and the quirky yet classic hand-stamped cultery also added to the vibe. Finally the invitations carry a retro colour palette that we felt helped create the right vibe for this fantastic era.
I hope you like it!

I’m very excited to announce my make-up and hair styling business is now live! I will be creating beautiful looks for brides, bridesmaids and anyone wanting a special make-over, as well as editorial looks. I’ve launched the Facebook page while I’m building the website which will be coming soon….Please have a look at Made Up by Verity to see some of the latest brides I’ve worked with…
As a fan of red lipstick, I am constantly on the search for the exact tone to match my skin, and I am pleased to have found Rockalily Lipstick! Set up by Ree Ree Rockette, Rockalily Make-up was created after she got sick of hunting for the right shade (I feel your pain Ree Ree!) So if you hanker for that foxy 1950s look, get over there!
