WED {Claire}

29 May

Claire & Jason said “I Do” in a glamorous ceremony at the beautiful Piazza in the Village on Thursday, April 19, 2012.

Claire’s gorgeous olive complexion looked even more stunning with the airbrush and her dark eyes sparkled with a heavy metallic greige and brown smokey eye. Pair that with  peachy-bronze cheek bones and a nude-mauve lip and she was ready to walk down the aisle!

This wedding was especially meaningful to me because it was my second wedding for this family. Last summer, I was the makeup artist for Claire’s sister-in-law, Jessica {seen at Jessica’s wedding here}.

Meaningful and bittersweet. As a makeup artist, I get to spend the most important, special and celebrated day of a family’s life with them, and because of that, I get to really know a family. Shortly after Claire’s wedding, her wonderfully sweet and loving mom, Patricia, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. I will always remember Mrs. Pena as one of my favorite (and kindest) mother-of-the-bride clients … she just loved her false eyelashes and getting made up! And I had the good fortune of having her in my chair not just once, but twice.
