Elegant Bride.

“With any long-sleeve or high-neck gown, it’s a good idea to choose makeup & hair that highlight the details of the dress. We did a soft romantic updo with loose curls and added an old Hollywood flair with a deep side part. I did classic demure makeup with lots of pinks and blushes and used dewy foundation for a radiant glow to her face.” (Gown: Lucia Rodriguez, LW4710)

“The glamorous beaded gown & dramatic earrings called for this 1920’s-meets-modern-day look. I prepped her hair with Push powder & volume spray from Big Sexy Hair, teased and curled each section, and pinned up flowing pieces for a voluminous side swept look. For sultry makeup, I did a smokey eye with plum brown eye shadows, paired with a plum bold lip.” (Gown: Eve of Milady, 348)

“This classic strapless blush bridal gown called for a more natural hairstyle and makeup. We left her hair down with loose curls and used a nude palette on her eyes. To add brightness to her look, I used blush on her cheeks and a pink pouty lip.” (Gown: Oleg Cassini, CWG568)

Prep Your Hair & Face ... “A week before the wedding, do a deep conditioning treatment on your hair and a sugar scrub on your lips, face, and body,  for a beautiful wedding glow.”

Touch Up With Clear Powder  ... "After a night of dancing and sweating, if you use a colored powder for touching up, it can make your face look dirty in photos. Opt for clear powder.”

Prep Your Hair & Face ... “You’re going to be looking at these photos forever. So rather than getting a trendy look, opt for something classic.”
