Hello there beauties and brides! With wedding season in full swing here at the boutique, we thought what better than to hear from one of our lovely JF makeup artist’s! Shelly’s back and reminiscing on one of her wonderful weddings from last season! Enjoy xo

Hi All, Shelly here! So for my lovely bride Lauren’s nuptials she and her bridesmaids got ready  in a cozy home in Guilford, Ct on the Saturday morning of October 20, 2012. The morning started off with a slight overcast, but by the time hair and makeup were done, it was the most beautiful sunny autumn afternoon!

Lauren’s look was inspired by a mix of the beautiful Kate Bosworth and Taylor Swift. We went with a soft neutral smokey eye, a rosy tea berry blush and of course some flirty lashes as the cherry on top. As for her lips, the perfect combination of our micro kiss and teaberry colors were used, and finished off by the ever-so-popular JF Super Copper Gloss.

Lauren’s wedding day was the best way I could have finished of my wedding season last year! Since the first time we met at her trial, continuing on with correspondence throughout the summer and then having the pleasure of sharing her special day with her and her wonderful family, Lauren was the absolute perfect bride. I wish her the happiest ever after.

Until next time beauties! XO Shelly
