"The vintage glamour of the setting and the gown inspired this look. A mix of gold and brown shadows from YSL was used on her eyes to create a smokey look to bring her from the day into the night. A shimmer brick highlighter from Laura Mercier adds a glisten to her cheekbones. A side-swept chignon hairstyle creates a softness to the face and highlights the beading of the dress.”
Brianna & Ashley’s Bridal Beauty Tips:
Wash Your Hair Before Styling … "Too much oil or moisture in the hair can make styles not last as long or fall flat."
Take Care of Your Skin … "Drink lots of water and moisturize every day and night."
Book Trial Beauty Appointments! … "Trials are typically booked 3-6 months before your wedding date."
“The deep v-neck gown and near shoulder-dusting earrings called for drama. Mixing two Makeup Forever lip colors for a red blend perfectly complements her skin tone. Kat Von D Shade and Light contour palette emphasize her bone structure. The classic hairstyle, pulled away from the bride’s face, brings attention to her earrings and bold lip, keeping the center of attention on her face.” (Gown: Eve of Milady, 4707)
A Touch of Bling
“The elegantly simple lace v-neck gown called for a classic hairstyle with glamour. Curled down styles are a great option to showcase some hair-bling. The makeup kept the same simplistic style, with a soft pale pink lip color from Makeup Forever and Temptu silicone-based airbrush foundation for an even complexion.” (Gown: Oleg Cassini, CWG795, $1,158)
