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!

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!

Wed :: Claire’s vintage-chic Big Day with Loft Photographie in Kaufman, TX

11 Nov

Claire’s wedding details were so perfectly enchanted and charming, it is one of my favorite weddings to date.

 ClaireJordanblog14

Little white church with a steeple on the corner of Mulberry Street (in Kaufman, TX) for the ceremony, old town square bank building converted into a venue space for the reception, an antique french crown on her head, and a party that ended with dancing in the streets – clearly you can see why I love this vintage-chic wedding so much! Enjoy this adorable wedding and all the bridal beauty below!

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.

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}

14 Mar

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.

{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?)

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!
