I love when brides come to me with a point of inspiration. It can be their veil, a color they love, or a celebrity they want to emulate. In Rachel’s case, she knew she wanted a classic look to go with her chic head piece, and she’d found a great red liquid lipstick that she thought would work. She was right, and the color was perfect with her gorgeous porcelain skin and rich, dark hair color.
In contrast, her sister wanted to go for the smokey eye/nude lip combo that is always popular with bridesmaids. She had gotten a spray tan the day before the wedding, and she would be the first to tell you, get a trial spray tan so you know what you’re in for!
I always love collaborating with my brides. Every woman has their own personal style, their own vision of what bridal beauty means to them, and everyone comes with a different level of comfort and experience when it comes to makeup. It is so fun to work together to create a look they love. I adore this picture of the new Mr. and Mrs. B! Thanks Rachel, for letting me be a part of your big day!
