“I chose glam waves with an exaggerated side part to complement this beautiful Old Hollywood style dress! I used a 1-inch bio ionic long barrel curling iron and Moroccan oil medium hold luminous hairspray. ” ... “Jada has beautiful cheekbones and a light caramel tone to her skin. To accentuate her gorgeous features I chose a matte, warm and bronzey palette, fluffy faux mink lashes and nude lip. I created a sharper, more defined brow, using black smokey liner for her lashline and waterline for a sultry look to be paired with her bombshell waves and deep side part.” (Gown: Dream Couture by Laura, Ariana)

“Beauty is subjective,” says makeup artist Ivonne Barish. “When doing makeup, I select what you consider to be your best feature, make it a focal point, and enhance your natural beauty so you can feel your best.” ... “I consider your personality and dress style,” says hair stylist Natalie D’Angelo, “to create a bridal look complementing both.”
Natalie & Ivonne’s Bridal Beauty Tips:
Add Color ... “Adding a little balayage or color to your hair before the big day will give dimension to any hairstyle, allowing details to show up better in photos!”
Start Early ... “Have your hair blow dried for your rehearsal dinner so you can wake up ready to go for your hairstylist the next morning!”
Last All Night ... “Always use extensions for any half-up or all-down hair styles, which help the style hold all night long!
“I gave Jada a half-up/half-down high pony. This off-the-shoulder look was very sultry so I wanted a hair style to match. I used a 1-inch bio ionic long barrel curling iron, Moroccan oil medium hold luminous hairspray, and locked it in with Got2b freezing spray.” ... “Because of Jada’s million dollar smile, I chose my most requested bridal look for this year. A champagne shimmer and iridescent glitter on the lid, wispy lashes, thin winged liner and a mauve muted lip to go along with her playful half-up/half-down hairstyle. I paired this look with a soft, dewy, and sculpted base and brows paired with a rose colored blush.” (Gown: Eve of Milady, 377)
“For this dress, I decided to give Jada the Kim K-inspired wedding style. I gave her a middle part and slicked the sides back using Redken wax blast and Got2be freezing spray. I then gave her those iconic waves using a 1.5- inch bio ionic curling iron and combed them out using Big Sexy Powder Play Volumizing and Texturizing Powder.” ... “I kept this makeup simple with a ‘clean, barely there’ look so Jada’s natural features could shine through, using a half lash on the outer corner of Jada’s eyes, light to medium coverage foundation, and neutral tones for the eyeshadows and lips to match her middle part and ‘sleek’ hairstyle.” (Gown: Eve of Milady, 377)
