3 Bridal Makeup Briefs slayed by UK & International makeup artist, Joy Adenuga

UK and international bridal makeup artist, Joy Adenuga recently had a shoot where she interpreted three real bridal makeup briefs on the reigning Miss Barbados UK, Milan Lovelle. Speaking about the shoot, Joy Adenuga said;

Natural looking makeup is a norm for most brides, I was inspired by a couple of my brides this year who wanted a bit more oomph in their bridal look.

With the help of stunning model, the current Miss Barbados UK and hairstylist Debbie Oye of Prestigeflair, I recreated their looks.

These looks were done on actual brides following the briefs the brides sent.
