Few months ago, while browsing through Pinterest, I had an idea to create some beautiful inspirational images showcasing stunning bridal makeup and hair as well as interesting jewelry and accessories. I approached my friend Carina Romano (Love Me Do Photography) if she would be interested in working with me on this project. She agreed and brought on board Ivy the owner of Lovely Bride Philadelphia.
I am so excited to introduce this series to the readers of my blog!
The first look I wanted to try was this very romantic yet elegant makeup with focus on a bright red lip, neutral eye and soft, dreamy loose waves.
The model's skin was primed with Mineral Primer and then evened out with a light application of Liquid Mineral Foundation ( I used stippling brush). Kelsey had this beautiful ivory skin tone which I wanted only enhance a bit with a Creme Blush in Taffeta lightly applied with fingertips. Her eyes were kept very neutral; I used the Shanghai Nights Eyeshadow Quad: I applied Bamboo and Cherry Blossom all over the lid and a very very light accent of Beige-ing in the crease. This model had naturally stunning long eyelashes so I only had to curl them and applied few coats of mascara. I really wanted to create a strong brow so I filled it out with a brow pencil in taupe. The fiery lips were accented with Vixen Lipstick.
