#BNBridalBeauty: For The Bride Who Loves Colours and Glamour | Joy Adenuga



We love when vendors in the wedding industry collaborate to create a beautiful body of work. This time, some amazing vendors in the UK headed by award-winning makeup Artist  Joy Adenuga in collaboration with celebrity wig specialist Chrissy Bales, bespoke bridal wear designer Alonuko and high fashion and beauty photographer Sean Whitty came together to create this bridal special.

Speaking on the inspiration of the shoot, Joy Adenuga said, “The makeup looks were put together to inspire brides who want a play on colours, in a soft yet glamorous way. The hair looks demonstrated the versatility of Frontal wigs for brides who wanted an alternative to the traditional “up-do”. Bridal hair can be fun, long and wavy or even short and sassy like the bob!”

Look out for the description of each look after each picture.


Something Blue 
Another take on the tradition of the bride having something blue. Keep makeup neutral with a pop of blue in the inner corners of the eyes.
Pink champagne 
Love pink but dread looking like a barbie doll? Keep all colours on the eyes matte with a hint of silver shimmer in the inner corners to avoid too much pink.
Shimmer and sparkle
Avoid glitter overload by applying it only below the lower lashes and ramp up the gloss intensity on the lips with a pearly shimmer mixed in with your chosen lipgloss.
The Glam Bride 
Want your eyes to stand out but scared of smokey eyes? Go bold with your lashes and keep everything else nude and neutral.

    Make up on a bride should be classic, not trendy! Brides that rock ombre lips and other trends on their wedding days are going to look back at their pictures in five years (possibly less), and regret their decisions. Let your looks be timeless. It should transcend decades! For that reason, only the 3rd look works for me – the lashes on the 4th are too much!

      That’s the most important lesson o learnt from KJB and Tinkerbell, you are also right but some looks get dated and you may eventually regret it if you go with trend
      Well done @Joy, always fantastic and she does all colours and eyeshapes! ?

    Nice looks. Black is truly beautiful. Just see how the dark skinned ladies in the pictures look so beautiful. Its really tough to get make up on darker skinned ladies right, and the make up artist did an awesome job. They all look fine. Weddings are personal. Whatever a person chooses to do is fine as long as it makes them the happiest. I don’t think there should be one specific style to follow…just as long as it makes the bride beautiful. Nice one

    A question please. How do you maintain a synthetic wig in the style of photo 1? How do you keep the strands in place without destroying the locks at the end? Do you brush or comb?
