Non-Traditional Bride

“Given the short dress and birdcage headpiece, we knew she was a fun, non-traditional bride. The pop of hot pink was the perfect lip color. I added a sheer peachy-bronze highlighter called ‘That Glow’ from Sybél Cosmetics on the top of her cheekbones and down the bridge of her nose. For her eyes, we went with a soft and subtle mixture of flat browns and a buffed-out bronze crease. We kept the hair down with soft, flowing curls to frame her face and highlight the headpiece. We used ‘Sebastian Zero Gravity’ spray to ensure long-lasting curls with a flexible hold.” (Gown: Lucia Rodriguez, LW9123)

A Timeless Look

“The classic sweetheart neckline allows for the dramatic chandelier earrings, double-strand headband, and old Hollywood chignon hairstyle. This flawless look was created with temptu S/B airbrush foundation; it is the perfect choice for long-lasting coverage. Her eyes sparkle with shades of bronze, cranberry, and deep brown from NARS. I applied a waterproof black gel eyeliner with a thin angled brush on her top lash line and inside her waterline at the bottom. I chose a berry lipstick called ‘Bridal Berry’ from Sybél Cosmetics to complement the deep rose blush on her cheeks.”(Gown: Oleg Cassini at David’s Bridal, CWG738)

Elegant Simplicity by The Bridal Suite NY

Elegant Simplicity

“The elegant simplicity of the dress allowed us to do a lot with her makeup. I applied MAC pro conceal and correct pallete with a  MAC 287 duo fiber foundation. I used MAC studio fluid fix and applied it with a MAC 132 Duo Fiber Brush using circular motions to create a flawless airbrushed look. I used a mixture of plums, soft browns, and off-black on her eyes using ‘The Bridal Suite’ eye shadow palette from Sybél Cosmetics. She’s got beautiful wide eyes, so I lined the top and inside the
waterline on the bottom of her eyes to really define the shape. To complete the look, I gave her a strong lip in the shade of deep wine using ‘Currant Mood’ lipstick from Sybél Cosmetics.” (Gown: Steven Birnbaum, Violet)
