Love Never Fails :: Beth & Brody featured on Southern Weddings

22 Aug

Shortly after being married, beautiful Beth was diagnosed with Leukemia … sending her and her new husband into a tailspin of emotions. A handful of us are so lucky to have met this amazing couple during their six-month anniversary photo shoot! I mean seriously, look at those gorgeous sparkling eyes!

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!

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!

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!

Dramatic Wedding Makeup {Vanessa}

Meet Vanessa, my super sweet, ultra cool, totally gorgeous bride that knew how to rock a dramatic look.

Intense slate grey, black and shimmery smokey eyes, fierce lashes, a full brow and a perfectly hot-pink-berry-red pout to match that out-of-this-world red hair of hers. I LOVE this look … and this sweet bride! Her wedding party was just as sweet, and totally excited about their beautiful bridesmaid looks.

Ashley’s vintage-chic wedding

31 Jan

One of the best things about my job is doing makeup for my friends’ weddings! Take my sweet friend Ashley for example: This blonde bombshell is a cowboy boot wearing, Miranda Lambert loving, southern belle that met her match in a wrangler wearing, horse riding, deer hunting cutie named Brent.

1

They said their “I Do’s” under the setting October sun, followed by their vintage, shabby-chic reception, all set in the hills of Conroe county right outside of Houston. Ash wanted glowing skin, peachy pink cheeks and a smokey grey eye with an emphasis on tight, black liner, drawing the focus to her beautiful, sparkling eyes!
