The Villa San Juan Capistrano - Romantic Bridal Makeup & Hair

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. 

Laguna Beach & Huntington Beach Wedding - Lillia and Will

I'm so excited to share Lillia and Will's beautiful wedding pictures by Lokitm Photography.  Their wedding was divided into two separate days with the ceremony held in the gorgeous Laguna Beach, and the reception in Huntington Beach! Lucky me, I got to get her ready twice!! 

I used Kett hydro airbrush on Lillia for even, long lasting coverage. I brought out her eyes with matte, warm brown eyeshadows and lashes for a little drama while keeping it soft. 

Also, can I just say I LOVE her tea length dress. It pairs perfectly with the shoes and the charming backdrop!

 

Thank you Lillia for choosing me as your wedding makeup and hair artist. I am so honored and happy to have met you!

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!!

Bridal Makeup

I love doing bridal makeup! Making the bride feel her most beautiful and confident on a day she will always remember is so important to me. I get to witness and be a part of those precious moments before the bride is about to walk down the aisle, surrounded by her family and closest friends.  

The photos below are from one of my beautiful brides, Bree.  She had done a bridal trial before her wedding, so she was able to test out the makeup look. By the time her wedding day arrived, she had decided to change the eye shadow colors slightly to include more purple tones (which brought her eye color out even more!)

Elegant Bridal Makeup and Hair - Nikki's wedding in Houston

Nikki was a beautiful and kind bride I was lucky enough to work on. The wedding day prep went very smoothly due in part to us having a bridal trial previously.  For brides like Nikki who aren't used to wearing makeup, a bridal trial ahead of time allows the bride to get comfortable with the way she looks and feels wearing makeup.  Even just filling in eyebrows and covering up dark under eye circles can be a shock to someone who is not used to looking that way. It is also a good time to test out wearing false lashes, which can be a bit of an adjustment when its new. As a makeup artist, a bridal trial is helpful for a couple of reasons. It allows me time to look at the trial pictures and really evaluate what worked and what could be enhanced, adjusted, etc. I also keep a detailed list of what products and techniques were used in the trial and any changes we may decide to make so that both the bride and I can feel confident that the result will be exactly what she wants.

For Nikki's makeup, I used Kett Hydro airbrush makeup to apply her foundation and subtle contours. This foundation is just excellent for on and off camera. It provides a natural transfer-proof finish, yet it can cover up blemishes, scars, and tattoos easily. Under her eyes I used my foolproof MAC Pro Longwear concealer. This stuff is long lasting, full coverage, and does not settle into creases. She chose to wear a pair of soft feathery lashes to bring out her eyes without being too dramatic, and I think they did just that. For her hair, she chose to keep her hair off her shoulders and paired with a birdcage veil for an elegant look that I think ties in so well with her venue and dress.

Beautiful Bride - Brittney's Wedding in Houston, TX

Here are the pictures from my bride, Brittney's, wedding in Houston, TX. Her beautiful photos were taken by Ama by Aisha.  Brittney was such a sweet bride with the most gorgeous green eyes! For her makeup, I used Kett Hydro Airbrush foundation to create a flawless base that doesn't look thick or heavy. I also used the airbrush to subtly emphasize the contours of her face.  For her eyes I did a very classic and timeless look that has just the right amount of drama to bring out the beautiful color in her eyes. Enjoy the pictures!
