Down-to-Earth Beauty turned Sophisticated Bride: Liz

More often than not, you will find alot of brides-to-be aren't the type to wear alot of makeup, ever, really. So it can be challenging to create a look that isn't too over the top. Here is our subject, Liz. Liz is a dear friend of mine and has some striking features, she reminds of 1940s or 50s starlet with her dark hair and fair complexion. I wanted to channel some of that old hollywood glam but something told me that red lips and winged liner weren't going to be easily pulled off, so I opted for this simple look. The flower helped in conveying the classic look I was going for.

Our First Bride-To-Be, Kari

Kari is a dear friend of mine who allowed me to work on her beautiful face to create this romantic, feminine look. Kari has medium toned skin with neutral to warm  undertones and has normal to combination skin. To accentuate Kari's natural features, I chose a medium coverage foundation in a Beige/Sand Colour as a base. I will try not to giveaway too many tips but I stayed neutral with Kari's lid colour and rather made her lips the focus using a very popular pink colour from a very popular cosmetic line. Can you guess what it is?
Here are some before and afters.
