Alex's Bridal Makeup and Hair
It was the lovely Alex's Wedding Day yesterday and we had a wonderful time! We started with skin preparation using Sonya Skincare to provide a great base. We used the Clinique Chocolatte collection for her eyes. Starting with the light brown to the inner eyelid, yielding to the medium brown at the outer edge, with just a touch of MAC black on the outer edge on the lash line. We used Smashbox Brown cream eyeliner on the top lash line. On the outer bottom lash line, we smudged in a little brown to bring more definition to her eye shape. After applying the flawless airbrush foundation, we added Clinique's Aglow blusher to contour her cheekbones and Clinique's Poppy Love lipstick finished her bridal makeup. To create her hair, we crafted height at the crown and added a plait to each side. This led back to an array of barrel curls pinned into shape and placed mini white roses throughout to give her the perfect look she wanted, with soft curls to her bangs to frame her face. For her step-daughter, after using Sonya Skincare, we developed a natural look using Clinique's Strawberry Fudge on her lids with Rimmel's neutral brown blended into the crease. Once her airbrush foundation was added, she had Clinique's medium bronzer to contour her cheekbones and Clarin's Mink Pink lipstick to finish. To see the reaction of her husband-to-be when he saw her is one of the things that makes my job so wonderful!
