Blue eyed Bride

I just love a good wedding don't you?
I honestly think those are some of my favorite makeup looks to create.
There is something quite magical about knowing you are helping a woman look and feel beautiful on one of the most important days of her life.
My latest bride, Jen, was no exception.
She was such a joy to work with. Smart with a wicked sense of humor and excellent style.
She wanted simple, chic and elegant.
Classic bride but with a hint of drama.

 I created a simple look using varying shades of brown & bronzes and accentuated her eye shape with a dark brown liner and a soft fringe of lashes.
A little about her bridal style:
She scored her dress for $99 (holla!) and then splurged on an amazing statement necklace to set off the whole look.

                                               Congratulations Jen and Steve!!

                                   I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!

Thanks for letting me be part of your special day!

J-J-Jaded Eyes

A few weeks ago I asked for makeup models to try out a few new looks and my girl Q was happy to oblige.
I was inspired by an image I found on Pinterest
 I instantly fell in love with the jade green smolder and knew that would be the perfect look for her going away party that evening.

Q loved the jade green color and with her brown eyes the end result was a slight departure from the original but definitely suited her.
The teal color is absolutely on trend right now as well so we are ahead of the game!
