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!

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.

Beautiful Hair & Makeup :: Erin’s Wedding Day at The Room on Main

12 Jul

Happy Friday! Allow me to introduce you to my beautiful bride, Erin. This pretty girl and her huge group of sassy, hysterical bridesmaids were so much fun to work with! 992876_10101606816014788_191214744_n

For her big day at The Room on Main, we went for a softer, bronzer-greige smokey eye to make her green eyes sparkle, peachy pink cheeks and the perfect pink pout! Isn’t she gorgeous?

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.

Ashley’s simply chic wedding style :: makeup & hair

16 May

Ashley is the kind of girl that you look at and think to yourself… “She’s so cool. I wanna be friends with her.” She’s effortlessly chic, down to earth, a little boho, and just about as naturally pretty as it gets. (the kind of girl who can swipe on a little mascara and look drop dead gorgeous, sigh.) And, when she agreed to let me use a more-orange-than-coral lipstick on her for her Big Day, well … that just took it to a whole different level. I should mention that since her wedding, I’ve become totally obsessed (hehe!) with Obsessive Compulsive Lip Tar). Please enjoy these ah-maz-ing images from Ashley & Greg’s big day at the Magnolia Hotel, photographed by one of my favorites of all time, Sara & Rocky Photography.

I should also mention that while Ashley’s updo was one of my favorite hairstyles I’ve done to date (golden/diamond hair accessory from White Gown Showroom), she also had a mid-reception gown change and hairstyle flip! Her glamorous waves were perfectly topped off with an chic, oversized flower comb!

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!

underwater-photography-dallas-texas-nicole-004

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!

{Candice} gorgeous glam wedding makeup

12 Mar

Say hello to my beautiful bride, Candice! For her big day  bridal style, Candice wanted flawless, glowing skin, smoldering eyes and pale pink-nude lips, a look inspired by Charlize Theron.

claffey_wedding_031_WEBclaffey_wedding_527_WEB

To give her the depth she wanted without going total smokey-eye, I used a soft taupe eyeshadow as the base and layered a sparkling mocha with hints of mauve and raspberry in the crease and corner. Tight black liner and super fierce lashes made her crystal blue eyes look even more intense! A perfectly pink pout was the finishing touch for her glamorous bridal look (she looks like a Barbie, no?)
