This was a fun one! I met Erica a little over a year ago through a mutual friend. When she asked me to do her wedding this past November, I was so excited to get ahold of that gorgeous face! She is naturally stunning with flawless skin, and is the sweetest girl to boot.
I know I’ve said it before, but I just can’t say enough how much I love it when brides ask for GLITTER! It really takes it from “just another makeup look” to “BAM! BRIDE!” Erica’s look features the same Stila Magnificent Metals glitter I’ve used on some other glam brides- but even with the same product being used each look comes out completely unique!
I kept the rest of her face simple and glowy to really play up the sparkle on her eyes. Her shadow was soft and pretty, featuring classic bridal tones of mauve and rose. Erica’s attention to every single detail really made the difference in her wedding and her “getting ready” process. Her veil and jewelry effortlessly adds to her classy glam look and she was absolutely glowing all morning.
I also had the pleasure of glamming most of her bridal party!! These girls had already come up with a look they loved from Pinterest and I was able to recreate the warm toned natural soft smokey eye on each of them. It’s so cool to see how the same color palette and shadow style looks different on each girl. Recreating the same look on the whole bridal party may seem impersonal or the “easy way out”, but it truly allows for a cohesive look to all of the girls and again, the same look will come out differently on each different person! I love how the color palette for the makeup really compliments Erica’s florals and bridesmaid dresses.
