For this fall wedding I used purples, pinks and gold tones on her eyes and lip. Her hair is in an intricate side swept style , consisting of several types of braids and curls.
Taliah wanted a simple loose curl for her hair, so I used a one inch barrel curling iron to curl her. Then brushed her curls out to give it a looser effect. To add a little something special to her hair style, I pinned one side back, which gave it a more "glamorous" feeling.
For her makeup , I chose warm colors and used my hourglass finishing veil over her base to give her a glowing look.

For Wesley’s wedding day she chose a loose updo with a side braid. She already a lot of hair, but to give the back a more dramatic effect , I added a hair pad and pinned all her curls on to that.
As for her makeup, I used my Temptu airbrush makeup along with my Viseart eye pallette, Inglot blush, liner and lip color, finished off with some Hourglass finishing veil.
June was the type of bride, my typical bride, that doesn't normally wear alot of makeup. She wanted me to keep her natural yet elegant. I used warm colors for her eyes and cheeks and darkened her natural lip color just a little bit. For her hair , she has a loose side braid and woven twists and curls in the back.

On Whitney I did more of a vintage look, lining her upper and lower lash line and using a darker red lipstick.
Muhan wanted a very natural look and her hair away from her face. For makeup I chose rose golds and brown tones for her eyes. We kept her lips neutral and also used a very natural artificial lashes. As far as her hair, I kept it away from her face without creating a pinhead effect and loosely intertwined her hair in the back. *see my Instagram page for the back of her hair.*
This hairstyle has a few twists and braids all gathering at the side , with loose curls hanging. I also used airbrush foundation on her and a very natural eye and lip.

Each hairstyle in this photo using a variation of braids, twists and chignons.
Since her hair was already twisted , I used her natural style to create an up do with big rope twists formed into a bun towards the back of her head. As for makeup, I used my buxom palette and picked golds and fuchsia for her lids. We kept her lips and cheeks very natural.
This lovely bride is wearing airbrush makeup, neutrals for her eyes and a peach tone blush. Since she had lots of layers and fine strands I gave her lots of volume and texture throughout all of her hair and loosely pinned up the back for a beautiful updo.
