Eve of Milady Gown, Hair & Makeup by Beauty by Terrie

Bridal Look by Beauty by Terrie

A Romantic, Natural Look

“The elegance of this gown inspired a romantic, natural look to complement it. For her eyes, I used MAC’s Brownluxe palette. For her lips, I used a nude lip color topped with a clear gloss. I added false lashes to allow her blue eyes to really pop. For her hair, we chose a gorgeous side up-do with simple pearl accents by Sterling Hairpins to showcase the gown’s dramatic back design.” (Gown: Eve of Milady, 4344)

Terrie's Bridal Beauty Tips

Plan Ahead!  ... “Set up a trial appointment with your makeup artist to test different colors, looks, and styles. During your trial, bring false lashes to see if and how they would work for your look.”

Step up Your Skin Care... “Cleanse and moisturize your skin morning and night to prevent potential breakout and keep moisture in your face. Healthy, hydrated skin will take your makeup better and look flawless.”

Timeless, Classic Look

“The classic look of the gown called for a timeless hairdo and makeup style. I chose a faint peach shimmer for her cheeks and a pearly coral lip color to match. Her hair is pulled back and off her face, keeping the focus on her eyes lined with deep browns to bring out the blue color.” (Gown: Lucia Rodriguez, LW2041)

A Touch of Glamour

“I complemented her fair complexion by creating bold eyes with a hint of gold. I finished the look with a red lip color with blue undertones. Her hair is swept half up/half down to draw the focus to her face.” (Gown: Oleg Cassini at David’s Bridal, CWG739)
