Natural Wedding Day Elegance

Naturally Glamorous

“These soft waves are glamorous, complementing Nicole’s stunning gown.” ... “When going for a natural look, it’s all about skin! I prepped the skin with Revlon PhotoRedy Rose Glow Mist and primed it with Milk’s Hydro Grip Primer,  followed by Revlon’s Infallible Foundation in shade 809. I used Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder to set and be secure throughout the night! For blush, I used Milani’s Baked Blush in the Rose D’Oro for a natural fresh face look.” (Gown: Eve of Milady, 366)

Gabriella & Sandra's Bridal Beauty Tips

Be True to Your Vision ... “Choose a hair and makeup team that understands your vision. Trials are key!”
Extensions? Yes or No? ... “Keep an open mind about hair extensions. Rather than being overly dramatic, they can add that bit of extra hair to enhance your look!”
Keep It Organized ... “Everything must flow, from wedding décor to dress to hair and makeup.”

“This softly gathered half up style really complemented the delicate shoulder details of the dress.” ... “I wanted to enhance Nicole’s green/hazel eyes with golds and deep browns. I used the Morphe Artistry Palette. Even when going for a natural look lashes always add the perfect touch, I used the Kiss Lash Couture Naked Drama in the style Chiffon. The perfect lip combo for a cherry lip is NYX lip liner in the shade Burgundy, with NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Copper Penny.” (Gown: Eve of Milady, 1627)
