Amy’s Bridal Session :: Smoldering, Dramatic Makeup

2 Jul

I LOVE a bride who’s not afraid to go full on drama … and Amy totally rocks this smokey, sultry, smoldering look in a major way! With her porcelain skin, fierce freckles and sparkling green eyes … she totally nailed this fashionable shoot taken at one of my favorite spots – 3825 South Bowen in Arlington. Now pretty please, feast your eyes on all this goodness!

Glamorous Bridal Hair & Makeup :: Courtney’s Wedding at Event 1013

7 Jun

Someone! Cue the confetti, because this lovely girl just sparkles! Courtney’s gorgeous forest-fairy bridals at Grapevine Springs Park and her adorable (totally custom-EVERything) wedding at Event 1013 will make you swoon. Seriously, Courtney & Quinn …. cutest couple award, right here!

I typically am a little skeptical of styling bride’s hair totally down for their wedding day … so many factors are in play to ensure it holds the style. But Courtney’s sleek, romantic, Hollywood-inspired curls are just to die for… and they we just as beautiful at 10am as they were for her exit at midnight! Along with her curls, a soft smokey eye and pretty lashes were on Courtney’s must-have list.

Nicole’s Underwater Bridal Session with Amy Karp Photography

2 May

I love my job. Seriously. And I love being stretched and pushed creatively and professionally outside of what’s comfortable and routine. Which is why, when Nicole booked me for her wedding and then told me she wanted her makeup done for her underwater bridal photoshoot with none other than Amy Karp, my heart skipped a beat!

Wedding day waterproof is a must, obviously. But tears of joy are no comparison to an hour-long dunk in a swimming pool, so this was going to take some research and a little trial and error before our shoot! With just the right products, I was able to create Nicole’s flawless bridal look and literally sealed it in so she was free to dance and play in the water with her makeup fully in tact. Just take a look at these images. So beautiful, whimsical and vivid. So original!

Cheers to our bride Nicole and the forerunner in underwater wedding photography, Amy Karp!

Warm, natural, golden wedding makeup and romantic hair {Linda}

18 Mar

Meet Linda, friends! One of the sweetest brides I’ve ever worked with! She and I hit it off the moment she walked in the door and created several different looks for her bridals, boudoir session (at Nuvo Room) and her Big Day (at the Filter Building)!

For her consultation, we did a low, loose and twisted, curled, updo on the side.

At her bridals, we took the twists to the back of her head and did a style flip and took it down with beautiful tousled waves for her boudoirs.

Then, on her Big Day, we created more of a softer, low bun! Add lots of natural, soft, romantic volume on top and voila! Makeup for her bridals and boudoir was a light smokey eye and for her wedding day, we went more of  a soft, glowing, golden route. All the looks were gorgeous on her!

Meet Chelsea, my super sweet, full-of-life, Aggie bride who walked down the aisle at the beautiful Ashton Gardens on May 26th! Here’s a look at her gorgeous Aggie-inspired bridals on the A&M campus in College Station by the awesomely cool JP Beato Photography.

She wanted big, bold, statement-making red lips, long lashes and thick black liner … and that’s exactly what she got!

{I adore this photo of the bride and groom from her reception!}

{love this idea! she had her back to the group the entire time I did her makeup so that at the end, she could do a reveal photo to catch their reactions to her completed bridal look!}

{proof that even my party girls look fresh-faced and fabulous at the end of the night!}

bridals {susan}

17 Apr

stop it. get out. i can’t even take it. i literally just died when (the fabulous, crazy-talented) Brandi Burkett {of Brandy Burkett Photography} sent me these photos.

susan & brad tied the knot this past weekend at her parents amazing home nestled in the piney woods of east texas – the same location where these photos were taken.

prepare to swoon.

susan wanted dark, dramatic eyes with soft, glowing skin and glossy pink lips. since her ceremony & reception were outside, i didnt want to do anything too heavy, so we created a gorgeous smokey eye using navy blue and emerald-green, in lieu of black and grey.

see the entire shoot here.

bridals {EB}

10 Apr

elegant. romantic. exquisite.

 

 EB completely embodied the classic, glamorous bride … and with that flawless complexion and those striking cheek bones, she was the perfect canvas. EB wanted to play up her naturally porcelain skin tone with dramatic matte eyes and a faint berry cheek. She came to me totally against lip color, but I managed to talk her into a beautiful nude-pinkish-mauve shade of matte lipstick (that she loved so much she went out and bought for herself)! We finished the look with corner falsies and voila!
