showtime: Gail’s wedding trial

Gail-Trial1

Hello dolls!

Wedding season is upon us, and I’m swamped with beauties! I can’t wait to share with you all the beautiful brides I’m so privileged to work with. I’m already behind and can’t keep up with these lovely ladies, but I’ll do my best to keep updating you all with new looks and pretty faces. Check out gorgeous Gail’s wedding trial!

Gail does not wear makeup often (beautiful, healthy, glowing skin!).  She wanted nothing more than to look like herself and not covered up to the point of being unrecognizable, which is totally understandable.

To bring out some of her best features, I lightly contoured her nose and cheekbones, showing them off a little more 😉
A soft, smokey eye and classic winged falsies to complete the look!

Stay tuned for more, my loves! xo

Hi everyone!

Andrea and her ladies were open to bold eyes (just like her!) to go with their stunning dresses. I had so much fun with all of you beauties! You make my job SO EASY!

Congratulations you love birds! Your love for each other is the perfect example of what a great marriage should be! <3<3<3

Hi everyone!

It’s been a crazy couple of months! I’ve been wanting to share with you this gorgeous bride, and beautiful soul Rowena and her stunning bridal party for the longest time!
I couldn’t tell you how much fun I had working with Rowena and how lucky I am to have met her! She is just nothing but sweet and wonderfulness and such a beauty. People as beautiful as Rowena make my job so easy.

It’s crazy how makeup is on a whole other level than what it was before. Sometimes, it’s out of control. I’m seeing a lot of over-contouring, heavy false lashes, and lip suctions??! Holy nuts and bolts.
It’s super fun to play with makeup, but let’s always be (and look) ourselves, okay? 😉 Isn’t that the most beautiful?

Weddings are such a special occasion, and of course – we want to look our absolute best. Instead of looking like a completely different person, let’s be the best version of ourselves. That’s my jam. Natural glam!!! =P

Thank you to Rowena and her girls for letting me post. xo

showtime: Before & After | Wedding Trial with Gianna

Click for a closer look!

Just look at this stunner of a bride to be, Gianna! She’s absolutely gorgeous, inside and out, and so much fun!
This beautiful soul seriously has THE most amazing skin ever. She takes great care of it and it sure does show. Makeup application is seemingly flawless and easy when you take good (and strict) care of your skin! Like Gianna! 🙂

I am so honoured and excited to do makeup for Gianna’s wedding in Spain (yes, SPAIN) in just a few weeks!
Her look is perfect. She wanted a fresh, glowing skin look to go with her soft, bridal dress, flower crown and the hot weather!
I used very minimal makeup. Remember that a little goes a long way. Lining her waterlines were totally unnecessary.
I can’t wait to see the look pulled together and share it with you all. Stay tuned.

Here are the products I used on Gianna:
Foundation: Makeup Forever 117 + 140
Concealer: Makeup Forever camouflage cream
Setting Powder: Ben Nye translucent powder
Brows: Anastasia Beverly Hills dip brow in dark brown
Eyes: MAC Burgundy Times Nine palette: Embark on crease; Honey Lust on lids; Grand Entrance (MAC) in inner tear duct
Mascara: L’Oreal waterproof Voluminous Extreme in Black
Eyeliner: Morphe (black) Slate gel eyeliner
Lashes: Ardell in black whispies (MY FAVE)
Blush: NARS Orgasm
Contour: NARS Laguna
Highlight: MAC Soft and Gentle
Lips: MAC Patisserie
Set face with MAC Fix+

I love this girl, her groom is one lucky man! I’m ecstatic to share the love in España, along with my love!
It’s gonna be good times indeed!

xoxo
