“I used Make Up Forever Ultra HD Foundation, to give her great coverage and hydration. I made her eyes really pop by adding a soft mixture of plums, complementing it with a shimmer highlight and individual lashes. I gave her a soft glow by using a rose blush adding MAC’s ‘Soft & Gentle’ highlighter. Her true pink lipstick is ‘Speed Dial’ from MAC with a Chanel gloss on top.” (Gown: Oleg Cassini, CWG 782, $1,158)

Nicole & Cristina’s Bridal Beauty Tips:

Wedding Photos Last Forever ... “When it comes to bridal makeup, don't go for what’s trendy go for what complements you best!”

The Eyes Have It ... “Lashes are always a good Idea. They open the eye and photograph beautifully!”

Choose Your Look ... “Get a look that makes you feel your best.”

Regal & Romantic.

“Her lips stand out with a pop of pink/coral from Juliette lipstick by NARS. I used Chanel’s blush #55 In Love, for a youthful glow.” Each hair look was inspired by the dress, accessories, and location. “I went for soft romantic looks, using ARROJO dry shampoo to add body and volume as I curled the hair with a 1-inch Conair curling iron, finishing each look by using Sebastian Shaper Zero Gravity.” (Gown: Oleg Cassini, CWG 670, $1,450)

Golden Glow.

“I used MAC Studio Fluid Fix for a long-lasting foundation, applying it with a fluffy foundation brush and buffing it into the skin for natural coverage. I gave her eyes more definition and shape by using Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof eyeliner on her top and bottom waterline. I applied individual lashes for drama. I used MAC's Refine Golden bronze as a blush to warm up her face.” (Gown: Oleg Cassini, CWG 782, $1,158)
