“This dress inspired me to put Alexa’s hair up to show off the gorgeous neck piece. I curled her hair using a 1-inch Bio Ionic long barrel curling iron and Kenra Thermal Styling Spray to set the curls & Kenra Volume Hair Spray to finish the look.” ... “With her glamorous bridal gown and updo, I chose a more striking makeup look with deeper and warm-toned chocolatey eye shadows, sweeping them from upper lash line to just beneath the brow bone. I blended the eye shadows out towards her temple to give a ‘blown out’ effect and smudged a Kohl Eyeliner along the lashlines for a sexy lived-in smokey eye, accompanying that with a deep contour to accentuate her cheekbones.” (Gown: Dream Couture by Laura, Diana)

“Beauty is subjective,” says Ivonne Barish.“When doing makeup, I select what the bride considers to be her best feature, make it a focal point, and enhance their natural beauty so they can feel their best.” ... “I consider your personality and dress style,” says Natalie D’Angelo, “to create a look complementing both. ”

Natalie & Ivonne’s Bridal Beauty Tips:
Be Selective ... “When looking for a makeup artist for your wedding day, do some research to see if their work complements the look and feel you are going for on your wedding day.”

Start Early ... “Seek out a reputable esthetician and start a skincare regimen as soon as possible so you can look and feel your best for your big day.”

“This dress inspired me to keep her hair down, laying on her shoulders. I used a 1-inch Bio Ionic long barrel curling iron to create the Hollywood waves and Kenra Volume Hair Spray to set the whole look.” ... “Alexa has such a timeless beauty, I only wanted to enhance that. I kept her makeup subdued, soft, and effortless. Her complexion was clean and more of a matte finish. Her shadow, blush, and lipstick were muted soft pastels and the lashes I used were a combination of short and medium clusters to go along with a more traditional, romantic bridal look.” (Gown: Portia and Scarlett, PSB1024, at Bossina Couture)

“I opted for a soft yet glamorous makeup look to go along with flirty ponytail. I swept shimmering copper and terracota shadows on her eyelids with a voluminous lash to make her brown eyes stand out. I used a nude liner in the water line to give her a ‘doe eye,’ adding a rosier blush to complement her caramel undertones.” ... “I put her hair in a romantic side ponytail to show off this stunning dress, using a1.25-inch Bio Ionic long barrel curling iron, Kenra Heat Block Spray, finishing with Kenra Shine Spray and Volume Hair Spray.” (Gown: Dream Couture by Laura, Manhattan)
