I adore this bride’s classic-cool, city-chic style! Check out her stunning, contemporary gown, dramatic statement accessories and that sassy fur vest at her reception (it was a winter wedding)! Bright eyes, pretty pink lips, and effortless loose waves for Chelsey’s big day. Enjoy these gorgeous images from Anna Routh 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!

Abby’s wedding day beauty |Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth | Tracy Autem Photography

I enjoyed every minute of working with this beautiful bride – from her bridal portrait day at the Rosewood Crescent Hotel to her BIG beautiful day at the Fort Worth Omni Hotel before heading to the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. I am always so thankful when my bride’s allow us the opportunity to provide hair and makeup for their entire group – and Abby’s six bridesmaids, mom and mother-in-law all got a full day of beauty!

Aside from Abby being totally gorgeous, gracious and lovely, she is also the proud of owner of the longest, thickest, most hair I’ve ever had to wrangle into an updo. The result (challenged my creativity a bit) and ended up being one of my favorite bridal updos of all time! Take a moment to enjoy these beautiful images by the ever-lovely, uber-talented Tacy Autem Photography!

Engaged | Vicky & Daniel with Allen Tsai Photography at the Dallas Arboretum

26 Mar

I love stylish couples…. and Vicky & Daniel are just that! These recent Dallas transplants are tying the knot in their native Southern California this Spring and are working with the lovely and talented Allen Tsai Photography! Their engagement shoot took place at a few of my favorite places all over town – The Dallas Arboretum, Klyde Warren Park and Nasher Sculpture Center.

1391922_747889705235742_946446457_n-1 1560545_747889721902407_1366252115_n 1970850_747889825235730_74058377_n 155186_747889881902391_1563195624_n 1947559_747889808569065_1643326474_n

Vicky’s makeup is defined but classic and soft in a palette of cool grey and pinks, and I used a 1-inch barrel curling iron to give her shoulder length hair tons of voluminous curls and pinned it up for a side-swept updo. (style note :: the gold & pink gown she is wearing … totally couture! The fabric was imported from France and the gown was hand sewn just for her – so glam!

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!

Lauren’s classic glamour Bridal Portraits | Brandi Burkett Photography

12 Dec

1450101_10151876092915777_1779361449_n

Stop. First, can I please just point out this bride’s perfectly porcelain skin, gorgeous black hair and the most ladylike red lip I’ve ever seen a bride pull off? Lauren is the epitome of classic glam and grace. Not to mention these photos were taken by the ever-lovely, dream-to-work-with, wildly-talented Brandi Burkett of Brandi Burkett Photography. It all reminds me of a modern approach to Gone with the Wind, no? That unmistakeable southern charm it just too pretty. Enjoy!

I’ve known this gorgeous gal since we were much younger …. Lauren’s the little sister of one of my very best friends, the mayor’s daughter and the sweetest gem you’ll ever meet. We even grew up on the same street together, (I’ve spent more time of the Dean family back porch than I can account for!) so I was beyond thrilled when she asked me to do her wedding! (insert shameless plug here  —–> I also planned her wedding too, through my sister company Life is Pretty, LLC).

WED: Marissa’s big day at Omni Fort Worth with Tucker Images :: Haute Hair

13 Nov

For Marissa & Yosi’s gorgeous wedding at the Omni Fort Worth, Beauty & the Blush was booked for a full day of haute hairstyles for the bride and her maids, which made me super excited because usually I’m busy doing makeup the whole time that I don’t get any of the super-fun and creative hair action on weddings days (which is fine because I usually leave that to my curling, poufing, pinning extraordinaire assistant Linda, who totally rocks).

IMG_1699(pp_w920_h667)I absolutely love Marissa’s undone braid-into-side-ponytail goodness that totally balanced her beautiful, feminine, delicate lace gown. Her bridesmaids varied from chignons to ballerina buns and braids all around.

Special thanks to my sweet friend and wildly talented friend Britney of Tucker Images for capturing these great, swoon-worthy detail shots for me!
