Meet Daniella Makeup & Hair

Having worked with Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist, Daniella Ingle on some cool styled shoots, we wanted to share her work as a recommended supplier. We love her eye for fashion forward looks, using trendy accessories for bridal looks and our most recent shoot she created bridal looks with loose curls, a statement velvet head band, the most incredible celestial star head band and also a sweet bow detail. We interviewed Daniella for her tips on hair, skin and makeup which we know Brides-to-be will find useful!

Bridal Hair - Styles, Care & Fashion

Q. We are in love with the trend of Brides wearing statement earrings. What sort of fashion forward hairstyles would you recommend to compliment this?

A. As you know, I am the biggest obsessive of the bridal ponytail, there’s a comfort that comes with an everyday hair style that gives brides the confidence needed to conquer their day. Done well, a simple ponytail can be elegant, modern and super chic. I also predict the traditional bun will be making a huge comeback this year, it’s pretty, understated and frames the face, neck and décolletage perfectly. Buns are also do-able with all lengths of hair, leaving it a great option for any bride.Team these simple up-dos with a pair of incredible earrings and you have the makings of a pretty awesome bridal look.

Q. What are the best hair accessories options for fashion forward Brides?

A. The world is literally your oyster when it comes to hair accessories right now. Gone are the days of the simple tiara, we now have crowns, headbands, slides, bows…you name it! I think it's really important to follow the style of your dress. If you have chosen a traditional dress, a modern headpiece may look odd but if you’re all about the statement…then stick to a simpler style of dress and accessorise the hell out of it. Just treat it like the best outfit you ever wore, style it up.

Q. What are your top tips for looking after your hair so that it's in tip top condition for your wedding day? Do you have any fave products too?

A. When it comes to hair, leaving longer periods between washes is fantastic for giving it all the goodness it needs. Natural oils are key! Hair masks, leave-in conditioners and hair oils such as Argan are fantastic too for an extra boost of nutrients. My tip; when you apply these, have a hot steamy bath. The heat will relax your hair opening the follicles…allowing the full benefits to absorb into the root. 

My go to hair product…Kerastase Elixir Ultime.

SKIN + MAKEUP

Q. What's your advice for looking after your skin ahead of your wedding day? Do you have any fave products too?

A. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!!! Try to drink 3 extra glasses of water more than you normally would each day. Your skin will thank you for it and you will see a huge difference. If you don’t have a good skin care routine in place, now is a great time to introduce one. Speak to a professional and ensure you’re buying only products that are going to work with and for your skin type. My tip; Introduce one product at a time to avoid overstimulation which can lead to irritation or breakouts.

Q. Tell us about your signature bridal makeup style... 

A. This is a great question. I don’t like to label myself with a ‘signature; bridal look as each of my brides are individuals and I pride myself on being able to adapt to each of their ages, styles and preferences. Allowing my brides to feel their most beautiful wearing as much or as little makeup as they’re comfortable with…that’s my signature style.

Q. What colour tones and shades would you recommend for Brides who want a modern, yet timeless makeup look for their wedding day?

A. Neutral colours always work for a timeless look. A colour palette that enhances the brides eye colour, helps to define features and flatters their skin tone. The undertone of skin can play a huge part in finding the perfect colour, ie. pinky skin tones should lean toward blue undertones and cooler colours like taupe and champagne. Yellow skin tones should lean towards orange undertones such as coppers and warm browns. Trials are a great opportunity to work with my brides and match what ‘technically’ works with their dream look.

Q. What colour tones and shades would you recommend Brides who want a super fashionable makeup look for their wedding day? 

A. With bridal makeup, trends don't really work. You can adapt certain aspects such as brows or a statement lip, but fashionable makeup is gone before the wedding album has come back. That's one of the things we love most about makeup though, how fast changing and evolving it is, it’s art! You don’t want to look back at your wedding photo and think “what on earth did I look like!” Stay true to your style and features and take advice from your makeup artist.

Q. What are your must have makeup products for Brides on their wedding day?

A. There are 3 products I recommend all brides have ready for their big day;

  1. Eyelash glue…tears are the devil for making the inner corner of lashes pop off.
  2. Your chosen lipstick…great to keep topped up throughout the day.
  3. Translucent powder…keep any shine at bay by having a mini powder in your bridesmaids handbag. If you’re not sweating…one of the guests who kiss you will be.

About Daniella

Q. Tell us about how you fell in love with hair + makeup and why you love working with Brides on their wedding day.

A. From a very young age, I watched my mum applying her winged eyeliner and eyebrows. She never left the house without them! I could french plait her hair from the age of 6 and growing up in the dance world I always had to be stage ready and able to adapt my skills to any role required.

As a very fair natural blonde I also had to learn quickly how to use my colourings and apply makeup suitably.

Being part of any bride's wedding day is like the biggest honour you could wish for. The one day in their life when you can bring their dreams to life. Allowing them to feel and look their most beautiful. Seeing the reactions from a bride's final look will forever be my most rewarding moment.

Q. Which areas do you cover and do you have any favourite venues you love working at too?

A. I cover all North West England but am already looking forward to my first destination wedding in Tuscany next year (excited squeal). I have only been in the wedding industry for just over a year but already have built fantastic relationships with venues and suppliers. I'm super excited to visit more over the next coming years.

Q. Should all Brides have a makeup trial before their wedding day?

A. A lot of makeup artists offer trials in their packages as a requirement. I have a slightly different stance on them though. As important as it is to build a good rapport and understanding of your bride's style, I also believe they’re booking with you because they have seen your skills and trust your abilities. They are booking you as a person and it’s important that you can gain an understanding of their style.

If they would like a trial, I always advise 2-4 months before the big day as I feel until they have their dress, they don’t truly know what style they are going for. A lot can change in the wedding planning stages and I have found my brides who have trialed too early, always end up having a second trial closer to the date.

Just communicate with each other, send inspiration boards, ideas and styles you love. Trust in your artists skills.
