The Vintage Wedding

I have known this bride since we were in elementary school, so when she came to me and asked if I could do her make up of course I said yes!

Her wedding was going to be vintage themed, so I knew I wanted to do a classic look. For her first trial run I used pink and gold eye shadow, and we loved how it turned out. For the next trial, I used brown and gold eye shadow with some cream shades, and we knew that that was the look for the wedding!

As always, I started with a clean and moisturized face. Moving from there, I applied Dr.Brandt Pores No More primer. While the primer soaked in, I started with the eyes. The reason I do eyes first is if I have fall out from the eye shadow (or mess up), I don’t have to re-do the foundation and powder.

The eye shadow  that I used for this wedding was Urban Decay’s Naked Palette. I used the shade virgin to set the eye primer and then applied naked to the outer crease, using that back-and-forth windshield wiper motion. After I blended those, I applied buck to the outer crease (over the top of naked). When those had been blended, I took tease and applied it to the inner lid and  packed sidecar to the middle of her lid.

When her eyes were complete I began applying makeup to the rest of her face. I took a damp beauty blender and used Nars foundation to her primed skin. After I dabbed the liquid all over her face and down her neck, I put concealer on her T-zone and blended it with the same beauty blender.

With a big fluffy brush I set her foundation with the setting powder by Fiona Stiles.(In regards to face makeup, I always use the same products). The bronzer by Benefit Cosmetics is my go-to. I love it because it has grey undertones that prevent your skin from getting that “muddy” look. When I applied the bride’s bronzer, I started at the tip of the high point of her ear and went down the hollow of the jaw bone. I stopped at the center of her eye and didn’t take it all the way down to her mouth, because I wanted it to look more natural. I then took my angled brush and blended the bronzer out by going with the line I created and also brushing it up with light strokes. I like the bronzer to blend into the blush, which I put on the apple of her cheeks. I used the Elizabeth Mott blush in the shade peach pink.  The highlighter I used was Mac Cosmetics in the tone soft and gentle. I love using this product for brides, (or anyone for that matter) because it is so beautiful and compliments the skin. I put the highlighter on the highest points on the apple of the cheeks.

I want to say congratulations on your wedding and wish you a life time of happiness!

Wedding Styled Shoot

When getting married, you may ask yourself:

Where do I start, and where do I want to get married? Who do I hire as a photographer? A wedding planner? Who will I hire to do my makeup and hair?

“Will you marry me?” A question that most girls dream about. The excitement starts here and so does the planning. I am here to tell you: do not get stressed. It will all work out, trust me. I was someone who asked the above questions not long ago, and I knew who I was going to hire as my photographer, but had no leads on a venue or dress style.

I will recommend to go online and research wedding vendors in your area. Also, ask friends that are married, and consult your photographer since they work with vendors for weddings and they are the best to ask! I have started to do makeup for weddings, but as of right now I am still starting out. I have worked as a MUA at a wedding, and on a wedding styled shoot. The ladies I got to work with on the shoot are awesome and they will help anyone who asks them questions. Now if I have a bride-to-be ask me for vendor ideas, I can send them their way. Those of us who work in the industry are here to help make your wedding as easy as we can, because after all this is your special day. After all is said and done, you get to spend the rest of your life with your best friend.
