Romantic Hair and Makeup for Vanessa's Wedding!

I can't get enough of Vanessa's gorgeous wedding photos!! The Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club was the perfect backdrop for this dreamy wedding. I think the makeup and hair Vanessa chose complimented the scenery so well!

Vanessa's up do was a very loose romantic style with curls set at the base of her neck.

For Vanessa's eye makeup, I applied shimmery rose gold eye shadows with a full set of lashes. Her foundation was airbrushed on with Temptu s/b foundation for a luminous finish. Her lipstick was MAC Cremecup - one of my favorite soft pink bridal lip colors!

Gorgeous bride!!

I am so in love with everything about this wedding!! Not only is the couple, Liz and Ryan, so adorable together, but their wedding took place in the most romantic venue with the most amazing florals and decor (see vendors below). I first met Liz and Ryan when they were engaged for a styled wedding shoot (the images and video are featured on the home page). The shoot was a totally different style than their actual wedding, so it was fun getting to create both looks on Liz.

To achieve her dewy complexion, I airbrushed her foundation, blush, and bronzer. The formula I used was the Temptu S/B formula, which is long lasting and gives a very hydrated look. 

For her hair, we went with a style that was inspired by a picture she sent me. It was mostly down, but with some structure to help it last longer and be out of her face. She loves braids, so I made sure to incorporate that into the style.

I am so lucky to have the most amazing brides as clients! Lisa was a sweetheart the first day I met her at her trial. She was also taking her engagement photos that day. Using your engagement photos as a bridal trial is a great way to test how the makeup photographs. After the trial, we discussed subtle changes to enhance her look to stand out more on camera, while still looking natural.

On the wedding day, I airbrushed her foundation, bronzer, and contour with Kett Hydro airbrush makeup. Lisa told me that it held up even after her crying most of the ceremony! For her hair, we added extensions and created a half up style with curls. I am in love with how everything turned out! She was such a beautiful bride, and I'm so grateful for my part in her wedding.

I am in love with this makeup and hair look I created with my beautiful bride, Rosemary! I say with, because it is a collaborative process with my brides to make them look exactly the way they want! She was such a sweetie; I really enjoyed getting to know her the months leading up to her wedding.

When Rosemary and I met for her bridal trial, she knew exactly the type of look she was going for: voluminous curls, and brown smokey eye with nude lips. To get a flawless finish to her skin, I used waterproof creme makeup with a thin layer of airbrush foundation on top.

An essential part of every trial is to take photos of the completed look! This is so important because it allows both the bride and me to see how the makeup photographs, and it gives me  the opportunity to really study the photos to make any improvements for the wedding day. We made a few adjustments for her wedding day, including adding some flowers to one side of her hair. 

I can't get over how glamorous and GORGEOUS Rosie looked with her completed look in her wedding dress. I got this message from her the next day:

I love how my makeup looked so natural and so beautiful thank you so much!!

Congrats again to Rosemary and Sal!!
