Glamorous Bride.

“I created a soft, smokey eye using  brown and tan shades, putting the darker shade in the crease and blending out. I used dark brown liner on the top lids and light brown on the bottom to bring out her blue eyes. I curled her hair with a large barrel iron and wove a small braid into a side chignon, leaving some hair down to add softness to her face.” (Gown: Eve of Milady, 4349)

“The inspiration for this look was the classy gown. The eyes have soft, natural makeup, pulling attention to the deep rose lip color. For her hair, I curled it, brushed it out, teased it, and then pinned it up section by section. The highlights in her hair add a gorgeous dimension to the low updo.” (Gown: Steven Birnbaum, Jo)

“To bring out the blue in her eyes and her bouquet, I used Drumbeat red lipstick by Mary Kay, which has blue undertones. The eye makeup is soft and the subtle browns balance out the bold lipstick. I curled her hair with a large barrel iron, applied a serum to her hair, and then pinned it into a half-up and half-down style.” (Gown: Lucia Rodriguez, LW4672)

Makeup and Hair That Lasts! ... “Use a facial and eyeshadow primer to make sure your makeup lasts all day and doesn't smudge. Before your wedding, I recommend the Keratin hair treatment to prevent frizz and help achieve a sleek blowout."

Bright is Beautiful... “For a bright look, use a shimmer powder in the corner of your eyes. Consider your face shape and hair color when deciding your hair style. Highlights add beautiful dimension to any hairstyle.”
