Wed {monica}

28 Apr

i just adore this girl! i first met monica when i did her makeup for her boudoir session (va-va-voom!!) and was lucky enough to be able to do her wedding makeup as well! monica & jeff tied the knot on april 13th at hickory street annex in dallas.

soft metallics, long falsies and gorgeous, air-brushed-to-perfection, glowing skin were in order for her Big Day! seriously, how romantic and dreamy does she look?!

Here’s a few of my favorite shots by the awesomely talented Lauren Ammerman Photography!

stop it. get out. i can’t even take it. i literally just died when (the fabulous, crazy-talented) Brandi Burkett {of Brandy Burkett Photography} sent me these photos.

susan & brad tied the knot this past weekend at her parents amazing home nestled in the piney woods of east texas – the same location where these photos were taken.

prepare to swoon.

susan wanted dark, dramatic eyes with soft, glowing skin and glossy pink lips. since her ceremony & reception were outside, i didnt want to do anything too heavy, so we created a gorgeous smokey eye using navy blue and emerald-green, in lieu of black and grey.

see the entire shoot here.

this is one of my new absolute favorites – a must-have for any bridal makeup kit

Urban Decay – Naked 2 eyeshadow palette

12 ultra-rich pigments, soft shimmer and matte, in an array of taupe to greige, befitting of a glamorous bride

elegant. romantic. exquisite.


 EB completely embodied the classic, glamorous bride … and with that flawless complexion and those striking cheek bones, she was the perfect canvas. EB wanted to play up her naturally porcelain skin tone with dramatic matte eyes and a faint berry cheek. She came to me totally against lip color, but I managed to talk her into a beautiful nude-pinkish-mauve shade of matte lipstick (that she loved so much she went out and bought for herself)! We finished the look with corner falsies and voila!
