Airbrush makeup

Real Bride Jenna

Last year with had the pleasure of doing makeup and hair for Jenna. Her  early spring wedding took place at Vie  and her and the bridal party were getting ready at the Le Meridien in  Philadelphia. Jenna was definitely a very glamorous bride and she had a vision of a modern yet classic look that we always love. She wanted a smooth vintage style on her hair and a very Hollywood makeup with a pop of fuchsia lip color. I think this look fit her perfectly!

BRIDAL BEAUTY LOOKBOOK - WEEK 10

I can't believe this is already a 10th look in our series!!!
I love red hair and freckles so needless to say I was very excited when we received Maddy's portfolio as a potential model for this shoot! 
With such a classic features and fiery hair Maddy doesn't need a lot of makeup or complicated updos to look amazing.
Once again we kept her look very classic and elegant with a little modern twist on her hair style.

We created this incredible look by applying a light matte shadow all over the lid, we popped in a natural looking strip lashes and accented the eye with blown gel liner. Liquid foundation by Kevyn Aucoin, peachy pink blush and a light lip.

This look once again shows us that we really don't need a lot of makeup and many different shades on our eyes to make a statement. Choose one vocal point in your makeup and stick to it, while keeping everything polished and neural.

BRIDAL BEAUTY LOOKBOOK - WEEK 9

I must say that this week's look might be my favorite we created so far. I just love, love, love classic makeup and hair. A 'movie star' worthy sexy smooth waves, a deep red lip and simple eye makeup. What can be better? I always tell my brides that you just can not go wrong with this look. Trends pass but  an elegant timeless makeup and hair will never go out of style.

I am so in love with the incredible detail on  this dress "Pemberly" by Carol Hannah.  The rhinestone shoulders are modern yet so red carpet. With a dress this stunning you do not need a lot of jewelry and hair accessories- just sparkly studs by Ti Adoro.

BRIDAL BEAUTY LOOKBOOK - WEEK 7

This weeks look is very easygoing and relaxed but still with a touch of glam. We wanted the hair to be very soft and messy to balance off these marvelous earrings by Ti Adoro.

We created a soft smokey cat eye effect in the shades of  eggplant and a used a bright glossy berry on the model's lips.

The whole look was a great compliment to this flawless 1920's inspired dress " LIndsay" by Nicole Miller.

BRIDAL BEAUTY LOOKBOOK - WEEK 6

This week's look is classy and a little sassy!

We created a cat eye by lining the eye with a black pencil and popped the lip with a cherry gloss. 


With makeup this dramatic we wanted to keep the hair soft and casual so the whole look is not too overdone.

BRIDAL BEAUTY LOOKBOOK - WEEK 5

In this week's look I wanted to show how a little bit of eyeliner, a tad deeper lip and a different hair style and accessories can totally change the look!
We kept the makeup very similar to what we did last week, I only added a bit deeper eyeshadow, more black eyeliner and changed the lip.
Jackie pulled the hair back in a loose romantic updo, we wanted to keep it as soft as possible with lots of loose pieces framing the face

BRIDAL BEAUTY LOOKBOOK - WEEK 1

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. 
All makeup by 

Model is wearing a Practically Perfect dress by Sarah Seven and a Flourish Caplet by Ivy & Aster.

We though that this delicate headpiece would be perfect compliment for this look! - by Untamed Petals.
The model was also wearing earrings by Ti Adoro (not shown on photos)

PHILADELPHIA BRIDE - ASHLEY

 Ashley and Matt got married on a beautiful summer day in Villanova, PA. We got there bright and early to get started on the makeup and hair. What a great bridal party this was! 
   Ashley wanted a little bit more dramatic eye with a false strip lash, her skin is naturally stunning so I just enhanced it a bit with the airbrush foundation, a bit of cream blush and some bronzer. She wanted her lips to pop without overpowering the whole look so I gave her nice rosy shade to compliment the rest of the makeup
Here is the beautiful review Ashley left for us:
  "It was so wonderful working with Aleksandra and Jackie. I had my trial in July at the studio and was immediately impressed -- they were both so friendly and warm, and made my mother and I both feel very comfortable. I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted, and they executed it perfectly, explaining their techniques along the way and had plenty of patience for all the questions that we had that day. 

  On my actual wedding day in August, I had a few minor last-minute changes to what I was hoping for -- it didn't phase them at all. Together they were able to perfectly achieve my dream bridal look, and did an amazing job on my bridesmaids and our mothers, too. The five of us cover a variety of skin types/tones and hair types/thicknesses, and in the end we all looked our best individually but also collectively. 

 I felt relaxed and pampered on the morning of my wedding, and I am so grateful to Aleks and Jackie for that. Their professionalism throughout the whole process made for a smooth and enjoyable experience overall. I would highly recommend their services to any bride (or anyone else with professional makeup needs), and look forward to finding an excuse to work with them again." Ashley Fortino
