Bridal Makeup - Bridesmaids

I not only love making over the bride but the bridal party as well.
Here are a few photos of some bridesmaids I've done recently.

I had a blast with all of these gorgeous girls!

Bridal Makeup: Jennifer Perez

I met Jennifer because she contacted me after seeing my work on the Gloria Mesa Photography blog
Gloria was my wedding photographer and since has become my friend. 
It was a joy to work with both ladies. 
Jennifer was the anti-bridezilla.
I just love her poised, kind and appreciative spirit. 
She is beautiful both inside and out!
Gloria did an amazing job photographing the big day.
Check out her fabulous images! 

Isn't she lovely!
 One of my favorite images.

Look below for more images and details of what I used to enhance her beautiful features.

INSPIRATION - Halloween Wedding

I've heard that October is the new June because
lately more and more couples are tying the knot in October.
This wedding was not only in October but on Halloween! 
Check out the unique way this couple embraced the would be spooky holiday.
Subtle touch of black & white in the form of a bow 
accented the bride's dress.
Do you spy the pumpkin colored flower girl? Too cute!
 The bride allowed her bridesmaids to display their wicked fashion sense.
Nothing says October and Halloween like pumpkins lining the aisle.

LOVING - Urban Decay Cosmetics Naked Palette

I am a huge fan of palettes! I love them because you always get more bang for your buck. This Naked Palette not only comes with 12 large eye shadows but it also comes with a doubled ended 24/7 eyeliner and mini Primer Potion.

What I love about it:   
  • Texture: Rich texture and pigmentation for all 12 of the glitter, shimmer and matte shadows.
  • Benefits: A lot of bang for your buck -12 shadows, double ended eye liner and a primer.
  • Versatility: The shadows are from nude to midnight blue which means the possibilities are endless!
Check out a look that Julie did on her YouTube Channel - I just love it!
