Jessica Becomes A Blushing Bride

July 27th, 2010

On Saturday I had the pleasure of doing the makeup for an adorable blushing bride named Jessica.  Her wedding was at a Ft. Lauderdale landmark, The Bahia Mar Hotel. Another destination wedding, I finally got to meet the bride and her mother the week before the wedding and knew immediately that they were going to be an easy going, happy family to work with. And was I right! I did the makeup for the bride, her lovely mother Sheryl, and her two matrons-of-honor

The photographer was Jeff Kolodny and the videographer was Jason Chandler of JC Video Production.

Jessica is not a big makeup person, but wanted her eyes to be the focus of her bridal makeup look. I started by playing up her newly enhanced tan, and added a few extra hours of sleep to her appearance with Bridal Veil Concealer in shade#3 by The Blushing Bride Cosmetics. On her eyes I used The Blushing Bride Cosmetics eyeshadows in “Ivory Lace”, Wedding Bells” and “Tuxedo” mixed with “Black Tie” for a soft but defined look. A few individual false lashes  finished off a look that made Jessica’s eyes sparkle.

To keep the attention on her eyes, her cheeks were kept very natural,  dusted with The BBC’s blush in “Always A Bridesmaid” topped with a bit of glow from Floral Shimmer Bouquet in “Honeymoon Glow.”  To complete this blushing bride’s look,  “Touch”  lipliner and “Bliss” lipgloss by The BBC to make her smile shine.
