Sweet, Romantic Beauty

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I wanted to share some recent romantic beauty work!

Skin prep is everything. This is a shot of some current favorites including Weleda Skincare, Cover FX, Josie Maran & Caudalie. I prefer to use natural or more ‘clean’ beauty primers and skincare as they are not overly pumped up with silicone or irritating fragrances. You know how I feel about my natural, organic and vegan friendly beauty products!

This bride loved a good shine on the eyes but wanted to look refined, sophisticated and polished for her wedding day. I used Becca Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector across the eye lids, a light wash of Chantecaille blush through the crease to giver her eyes subtle definition and of course a fine strip of eye lashes. The skin is looking gorgeous with a blend of Marula Oil and Mehron’s Celebre Pro Foundation for the perfect balance of comfort.

I had the pleasure of doing DJ Gina Turner‘s makeup and we were loving a clean makeup look with sleek hair inspired by a couple mutual beauty inspirations. Her hair was prepped with Big Fat Hair Amplifying Mist  and a low heat hair straightener to get her hair looking extra smooth. I finished her hair off with a quick application of Morrocanoil for that healthy high shine. On the eyes I used a few Make Up For Ever matte Artist Eye Shadows, Inglot Gel Eyeliner and a generous coat of L’Oreal Voluminous for the perfect ‘day glam’ eye. On the skin, I mixed RCMA foundation and Gina’s own Mac BB Creme for an ultra sheer look and added YSL Touche Eclat lightly to illuminate the eye contour. Her skin was finished off with a small amount of Graftobian Pro Loose Powder, Make Up Forever Blush, Cover FX Matte Bronzer. On the lips is a Dior Lip Pencil, Dior Addict Lipstick mixed with a touch of Josie Maran Infinity Cream.

This beauty was attending an engagement party and is a minimal makeup wearer. I mixed Pure Marula Oil with Mehron Celebre HD Foundation to perfect the skin and used a touch of Jane Iredale Mineral powder to softly define the cheeks. On her eyes is Make Up For Ever Eye Shadows and on the lips is Laura Gellar.

This bride wanted to keep a natural makeup look for her engagement party as she opts for a signature winged eyeliner and low maintenance makeup in her daily life. I used a pair of lashes from Frends Beauty and Inglot Gel Eyeliner with a few warm eye shadows to accentuate her eye shape. On the lips is my new favorite nude lip liner – OCC Makeup ‘Trick’ Lip Pencil and a mix of 3 lipsticks from a custom palette I made. For the bare skin look I used Urban Decay Vitamin B6 Facial mist, Mehron Celebre Foundation and Cover FX Cream Concealer set with Graftobian Pro Loose Setting Powder. I loved the total look and love the traditional clothing paired with this more modern makeup look.

I wish I had taken a few beauty close ups but here is a photo of my beautiful client on her wedding day with her daughter. The photos she sent me were so amazing – look at this location! I did a glam smokey eye on the bride with sculpted cheek bones and a creamy neutral rose lipstick. I styled her hair with a NUME Reverse Curling wand and set the hair with a generous few sprays of Dry Bar Triple Sec spray. Her daughter’s hair was a bit more bohemian with a braided overlapping half up style and romantic waves for her long, thick hair. Her makeup was pretty minimal as she had a gorgeous baby face so I groomed her brows a bit, gave her a good coat of mascara and liquid liner and added just a wash of color to her cheeks and lips with Becca Beach Tint.
