Real Wedding

With a background in dancing & pageantry, our gorgeous bride, Carin looked incredible wearing a sophisticated makeup look, emphasizing her natural beauty. I took extra care to keep her makeup very clean & precise, & our team was especially excited to show off her beautiful hair by giving her a sexy, loose curl (which paired perfectly with the elegant neckline of her dress). Carin is undeniably beautiful & her bridal party was one of the most fun groups we’ve had the pleasure of doing makeup for!

Leave it to wedding planner, Maria Socha from Sealed With A Kiss to coordinate a stunning wedding featuring bold red bridesmaids gowns & elegant white flowers amidst the gorgeous backdrop of Hotel Albuquerque. & thank goodness for the immeasurably talented Tony Gambino for capturing it all!

Emily Joanne Photography provided these incredible images to capture how exquisite the bride looked in this gorgeous setting.

The September weather couldn’t have been more perfect – from prep to final touches on hair & makeup this was one of our most memorable weddings & we’re so excited to share these images.

Get that “Happy Bride Glow”

Last week, my client, Candace, came in asking for a moderately smokey eye & a beautiful natural looking lip for her engagement photo session. In preparation for her loveliest day (her wedding is coming up in the winter of 2014), Candace wanted to try out a makeup look similar but subtler than the look she envisioned for her wedding. Because Candace already had gorgeous skin & loooooong, enviable eyelashes, I focused on giving her the iconic ‘happy bride glow’. I used my favorite highlighter from Victoria Secret – the very subtle pinkish tone gave Candace the most youthful, ‘lit from within’ look. Lorac’s Pro Palette also came in very handy for rimming her eyes in the shade “Pewter”. Typically, I avoid lining the bottom lashes, but because we were working on an engagement session & not a wedding (where we risk the bride crying off all of the bottom eyeliner), I went for it! & let me tell ya, the bottom liner MADE THIS LOOK; it was the perfect final touch.

Aren’t these photos gorgeous (& gee whiz, doesn’t he look HAPPY? Maybe I should have called it the “happy groom glow” 😉 )

We just adore this couple! Thank you Candace for allowing us to be a little part of your love story.
