Winter Wonderland Wedding
January 26, 2016

Nothing is more beautiful than a winter wedding!

Our bride, Rachel looked absolutely stunning walking down the Isle to start the next chapter of her life with the man of her dreams.

To create this look on Rachel, I started with priming and setting her face and eyes to ensure an extra long staying power. Once Rachel was primed I started with her eyes. I used Kjaer Weis eye shadow in cloud nine to give her a solid base followed by onyx and wisdom to create a soft yet smoky finish. Her eyes were finished with black mascara and some faux lashes to add some extra length and volume. Next was to give her skin a smooth and matte finish by using Ilia vivid foundation and concealer. To brighten up her cheeks I used a soft pink blush called peony and Jennie Fresa Bronzer in st. barts. For Rachel’s lip we wanted something warm and decided to use Ilia lipstick, funnel of love topped with Jennie Fresa Diamond Gloss for some added shine.
