Latest bridal work - I had a blast with the ever-so-charming Marylena.
The look: au naturel & soft. Eyes and lashes were emphasized with layer upon layer of individual falsies, lips and cheeks a slight apricot mixed in with rose petal pink. The final look was dusted off with some pearly-iridescent loose powder for that je ne sais quoi bridal glow.
When there’s money to spare for a Halloween costume, my makeup kit comes through for me…yet again.

2) Rimmel: Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick in shade no. 12.
Claim to fame:
My thoughts on no.12: Tangarine/Orange-Red lips are really hot this summer, and this shade is the perfect combination of both. The texture is really creamy and doesn’t dry out my lips like most long-lasting lipsticks tend to do. It adds a nice little pop of color without looking freakish. Doesn’t need to be dressed up, so I suggest pairing it with a clean cat-eye liner, or even just a couple of coats of mascara.
Shots from my most recent bridal makeup work: the lovely, elegant, and always charming - Mizz Sarah.
The goal for Sarah’s look: Mix of ultra feminine, subtle and sexy.
The makeup: Pearly inner corner of the eye, lightly smoked out with a soft brown at the outer corners and topped with a winged-out liner. Layers upon layers of individual false lashes. Cheeks are contoured and bronzed, and blush is a pearly pink. Cheekbones and brow bones are highlighted with more pearl, and lips are a sexy muted rose.
Bridesmaids: Eyes are wrapped in a mix of gold and bronze eye shadows, with a touch of black winged-out liner at the outer corners. The face is fresh and dewy, with fuschia-coral cheeks, and the lips are a beautiful peachy-pink.
