Flawless Beauty.

“To accentuate Kristen’s dress, we kept her hair away from her face with a side updo, adorned with a jeweled headband. This flawless look was created using Temptu S/B Airbrush foundation, rich plum shadows to define her blue eyes, MAC’s 'Soft and Gentle' skin finish for a highlighter, and ‘Porcelain Pink’ skin finish as a blush. For her lips, I used ‘Speed Dial’ pink lipstick from MAC and ‘Bella’ lipgloss from The Bridal Suite NY. For the more dramatic reception look (photo to the left), we added black shadow to her eyes and ‘Reel Red’ cream color base from MAC to her lips.” (Gown: Matthew Christopher, Carrington, at Designer Loft)

No Look is Complete without Lashes! ... “We use Demi Lashes from The Bridal Suite NY to complete each look and bring out the eyes.”

Regal Elegance.

“We used Sebastian Shaper Zero Gravity hairspray and a regal headpiece. I gave her skin a satin smooth finish with Studio Fix Fluid foundation from MAC. I used Kat Von D shape + light eye contour palette on her eyes. The look is completed with ‘Devotion’ coral lipstick and ‘Pink Peony’ lipgloss, both from The Bridal Suite NY.” (Gown: Oleg Cassini, CWG734)

Traditional Glamour.

“I applied Arrojo Refinish dry shampoo to her roots, then used Hot Tools 1” curling iron for voluminous romantic curls. Makeup Forever Ultra HD foundation gives her a dewy youthful glow. I used traditional plums and browns on her eyes. Then I used ‘Queen’ highlighter and ‘The One’ red lipstick, both available at The Bridal Suite NY.” (Gown: Oleg Cassini, CWG748)
