What a bride wants

Here I go again…it’s been over 4 months since my last blog post! I am really just terrible at keeping up with this. However, in my defense, it is wedding season so I have been working like a mad woman and my boyfriend and I got a puppy so that has been keeping us very busy! Anyways, enough of my excuses…on to the makeup.

With the number of weddings I have been working on this summer, I thought it might be fun to share the most requested look I get for brides and bridesmaids. This would definitely be the luminous skin (with some highlight and contour of course), a neutral eye with a pop of shimmer in gold/bronze/peach, big lashes, and neutral lips with a hint of pink.

Every client is a little bit different of course…some like black on the waterline and some like white, some like a lined lip with a lipstick and some like just a dab of gloss, some want a winged liner and some want none. However, the overall look is always pretty, fresh, polished and a little bit sexy!

Here are a few examples of this look on some of the beautiful clients I have had the privilege to work on this summer!
