Glamorous Bride.

“The dramatic gold gown called for  glamorous makeup and hair. For more intense eye makeup, I used rich plum shadows and lined the top of her eyes with waterproof black eyeliner. I applied MAC’s fluid fix foundation with a dual fiber brush and then plum foolery blush, also from MAC, on her cheeks. For voluminous hair, I did soft romantic barrel curls with a 1-inch Babyliss flatiron and lightly teased for height.” (Gown: Lucia Rodriguez, LE8400)

“I mixed soft peach & bronze shadows on her eyes,  ‘Captive’ illuminating peach blush from The Bridal Suite NY on her cheeks, and Dolce Vita lipstick & ‘Orgasm’ lipgloss from NARS on her lips. I curled her hair with a 1” Babyliss flatiron, set the curls with L’Oréal bold control hair spray, and finished the look with Design Essential Silk hair gloss.” (Gown: Lucia Rodriguez, LE8420)

“For a flawless face, I used Temptu S/B airbrush foundation and MAC’s golden bronzer as a blush. I used muted browns on her eyes paired with a nude lipstick and ‘Xoxo’ lipgloss from the Bridal Suite NY. For the regal hairdo, I pinned barrel curls into a low side swept bun with a slightly off-center part, topped with an elegant headpiece.” (Gown: Oleg Cassini, CWG 770)
