Brianna’s Wedding Day Makeup

I was excited to do some bridal glam makeup on this beautiful bride, Brianna, for her wedding day. I also got to pamper her mom with a makeup session, who was her matron of honor. What a fun morning we had doing makeup, laughing and drinking mimosas!

Jessi and BABs

This exquisite bride-to-be found me via a google search in Washington DC, where she currently lives. However, she is getting married closer to her husband’s home town in Aiken. We talked back and forth for a while and I was so excited that I finally got to meet her and get to know her better! She also brought her amazing friend, BABs (which stands for Bad Ass Bitch) with her. (If you’d like to learn more why the call her BABs, check out this link Here. Her story is heartwarming and inspiring. Seriously, click it. You will get goosebumps.)

Back to makeup. Jessi has all sorts of beautiful colors in her wedding flowers so we wanted to keep the eye simple with a red lip and that is exactly what we did! Here is her final look.

Stylized Photo Shoot

I recently had the wonderful opportunity to partner with Pamela Williams Photography and do the makeup for a stylized bridal shoot.  I was so excited to be asked along with other local businesses involved like Flowers on Broad, The Marion Hatcher Center and House of the Bride.  I also got to meet the sweetest model, Jordan.

Brianna’s Bridal Trial

Another day of fun in my studio with a new client, Brianna! Brianna is getting married and wanted a new dramatic look for her wedding day. When she got to my studio, we discussed everything about her look that she wanted. She showed me pictures of what she loves and doesn’t like. (Did you know that what you don’t like is just as important as what you do like?). We talked about her dress, her wedding colors, and her hair. This way, I can create a cohesive look for her wedding day. Here is her final look…..

Details on her makeup look:

Airbrushed foundation: Dinair in Vanilla and Olive Beige Soft Glow

Concealer: IT Cosmetics Bye, Bye Undereye

Contour: Bare Minerals – Deep End

Blush: Mac Cosmetics

Eyes: Makeup Geek Cosmetics, Tarte liner, Pat McGrath Labs, Urban Decay

Brows: Colour Pop

Lips: Bare Minerals

Lashes: Red Cherry

I’ve also created a face chart to go along with Brianna’s look….

Jessie and Linda

I was so excited when these two made an appointment for Jessie’s bridal trial and a trial for her mom too!  We got everyone relaxed and had a great time!

Jessie wasn’t too sure of what she wanted for her big day, so I created a soft, contoured eye with a bit of smoke using the colors in her wedding….navy and pink.  Of course, you all know me, so it wasn’t only those two colors to create her look but that is what started it.  For the wedding, we will also add false lashes to complete the look.

For Linda, the mother of the bride, we stayed with a simple and polished look for Jessie’s big day . . . radiant skin, classic eye, topped with lots of mascara, and a pink/slightly berry lip.

Lauren’s Bridal Trial

When brides decide to hire a professional makeup artist for their wedding, it is so important to do a makeup trial first.  This allows the bride to be able to adjust her look before the wedding day.  This way, on the bride’s big day, she can sit back and relax knowing that she is going to look exactly like she has always pictured!

Lauren came to me for her bridal trial where I spent some time with her and got to know more of what she wanted.  Here is Lauren’s final bridal look.

I’m a guest blogger!

Katelynn and her Bridal Party

As you already know from my blog, I love what I do!  I am extremely lucky to have such amazing, sweet and beautiful clients and the other day was no different!  Katelynn, the gorgeous bride, and her sweet bridesmaids were so much fun to be with on her wedding day.

On the wedding day, the bride sits in my chair and gets to take a moment to enjoy the whole process of the day without any worry!  The bridesmaids get pampered as well.  On each bridesmaid, I try to do different looks customized to each one.  I take into consideration on what the bride wants for her wedding party, as well as what make her bridesmaids feel most comfortable.
