Bridal Beauty

    On your wedding day, I think it's very important to look and feel naturally beautiful.  Your photos will be seen and cherished forever, and I want to make sure that every bride looks like the most beautiful version of herself.  This is not the time to try out the latest makeup trend, or else the photos will look dated fairly soon (bright blue eyeshadow and 80's pouf dresses, anyone?)   Amanda is one of my recent lovely brides, and I had so much fun doing her makeup.  Amanda's wedding took place on a gorgeous ranch in southern California, during the day.  I decided to use one of my all-time favorite MAC lipsticks on her, in the color "Cosmo."  This is a mid-toned rosy shade, and it imparts a lovely flush of color on the lips that is really flattering.  The formula is an "Amplified Creme," which combines lasting power with nourishing moisture for your lips.  And of course, it has that yummy vanilla scent!  I airbrushed Amanda's skin using Temptu S/B foundation, a silicone based foundation that gives a soft-focus effect to the skin.  This foundation is designed to be applied with an airbrush, but it can also be applied with your fingers for a really nice result.     Bridal makeup is one of my absolute favorite things to do.  I love making women look and feel beautiful on one of the most important days of their lives.
