This beautiful bride-to-be contacted me recently about makeup for her October wedding. When she and her mother, Cindy, arrived at my home for a Consultation with Makeup, I was awed by Jean's beautiful skin and stunning eyes!
Jean rarely wears anything more than mascara, but wanted to ensure she looks radiant in her wedding photos. She was concerned about looking and feeling "made up" -- "Foundation drives me nuts!", she said with a grin. So working with light-weight products, we created a beautiful "no makeup" look for her that had her skin glowing and eyes lighting up. I used a just a few false lashes and a hint of brow color to define her eyes, a mix of light-weight liquid and SPF-free mineral powder for her skin, and then blended a lip shade just a hint rosier than her natural color. Jean and her mom were thrilled!
(** Please note: I am NOT a photographer! But I am learning..... please forgive the fact that these shots are a bit over-exposed. )
When Jean looked into the mirror at herself for the first time after I'd completed the makeup, she got this beautiful, wistful look on her face.....
And then I had her stand in front of a back-drop and give me a little sassy attitude. She was all for it!
