 So, I am super late on blogging this gorgeous, brunette beauty …. but better late than never! Jennifer’s wedding day look included a palette of soft beigey-nude-browns and pretty pinks. I created a sideswept, softly curled updo that we topped off with a pretty little bling. Enjoy these gorgeous images from her Paradise Cove at Lake Grapevine wedding by Nicole Berrett Photography.

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.

I absolutely adore this beautiful bride (and her glamorous style)! We did a bronze & mauve colored palette on MihnTu’s eyes with winged liner, flawless skin and a pretty pink lip and a big, full updo. Her bridesmaids all requested really fun, great looks (see bold-eyed bridesmaid below) and updos all around! Such a beautiful group! Enjoy theses gorgeous images by the lovely Sarah Kate, Photographer!

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!

Courtney’s natural wedding beauty with NBarrett Photography at Gather McKinney

10 Apr

Courtney & Ben said “I Do” in a sweet and beautifully intimate ceremony this spring at Gather McKinney. Courtney was a no-makeup kind of gal, so she wanted to keep her look as clean, simple and natural as possible.

1601000_10102117317216217_1614897452_n 1926873_10153918572985621_1938484475_n

So we did just that! Pretty, smooth cream foundation, a little bronze and coral pop on her cheeks, taupe on her eyes and loads of mascara, with a pinky-natural pout and she was ready to go down the aisle. But! Let’s not forget that hair!!! I LOVE when my brides opt for braids! Courtney straightened her naturally corkscrew-curly hair and we did soft, smooth waves and two braids on either side that met in the back for an infinity crown braid. We topped it off from with a few fern leaves (from Bows & Arrows). Her overall look, a little Grecian, a little boho and whole lot of natural, gorgeous, goodness! Stunning images by NBarrett Photography. Enjoy!

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!
