I came back mid-way through Audrey’s reception to give her a party-perfect update to her look: we changed her updp to a beautiful side swept ponytail and added a bright pop of coral-pink on her lips!f143

I love Susan’s classic, graceful beauty and was so pleased to have been able to do her makeup for her bridal portraits as well as her hair and makeup for her rehearsal dinner! Unfortunately I wasn’t available on her wedding day (major sad face inserted here) but am so thrilled to have just gotten my hands on all theses beautiful images by the dreamy, magnificent Thisbe Grace Photography.

Taylor’s wedding day beauty | Charla Storey Photography | Swingin’ D Ranch

25 Apr

Happy Friday! Everyone, meet Taylor, one of my fall/winter 2013 brides who was as sweet, wonderful and lovely as she was gorgeous. She has the sparkliest eyes I’ve ever seen (so obviously we totally played those up!) and the thickest hair of all time. Ever. (I think I’ve said that before, but Taylor totally wins the prize). She wanted classic, wedding glamour so I used a smoldering grey palette on the eyes, with a neat, sharp winged liner and matte skin with big curls and the perfect little floral topper. Enjoy these beautiful images by Charla Storey Photography from their wedding at Swingin’ D Ranch!

Thania’s Dallas engagement shoot with Havi Frost Photography and Jen Rios Design {hair and makeup}

28 Jan

I am loving these gorgeous engagement photos taken a few weeks ago by the ever-talented and lovely Havi Frost Photography. Thania & Miguel wanted a duel-setting shoot; something sweet and romantic and something urban and city-scape inspired. So Jen Rios Design went to work (with gorgeous floral by Wedfully Yours) in setting up two scenes at the White Rock Lake and downtown Dallas at the Meyerson Symphony Center. 

thanialovesmiguel-10008

Thani – whose chiseled cheekbones I raved over on Facebook and Instagram that day – (I’m convinced) were put on this earth just for my sculpting enjoyment – wanted flawless skin, dramatic eyes and structured, but not-too-perfect curls for their shoot. Enjoy!

WED :: Mila’s wedding day beauty with Feather & Twine Photography at Piazza in the Village

17 Jan

Sweet Mila came to me wanting understated glamour and an elegant bridal look but most importantly, she wanted to look like herself. We kept her makeup really clean and fresh, adding a pop of color (purple!) on her eyes. We swept her dark silky hair up into a sleek chignon and sent her down the aisle to marry her prince charming. She treated her maid-of-honor to a day of beauty too! Enjoy!

My favorite thing about this image? Mila came to me for an appointment around 8:30AM on her wedding day … and here she is, cake cutting, late night and all, still looking just as flawless as when she left my chair early that morning!

Outdoor Dallas Engagement Session :: Jasmine’s hair & makeup

29 Jul

I absolutely adore this outdoor engagement session with my bride Jasmine!

dallas-wedding-photographer-golf-course-fashion-engagement-session-jasmine-trey-002

She wanted outdoor-friendly, smoldering, smokey eye makeup … so instead of the traditional black and grey used to create a smokey eye, I made it daytime-approriate by using taupe, slate grey and a hint of plum. Pair that with carefree, voluminous waves, and you get this  this fashionably sassy engagement shoot by Amy Karp Photography!

And enjoy this special feature on the hair and makeup from the shoot. I incorporated the pink/gold theme into a shimmery, fully lined eye in deep burgundy, lighter pink and gold with glowing skin and bronze cheeks. Her hair is a little haphazard, a little messy, but big, full and loaded with volume.
