This bridal photo shoot may quite possibly be my all time favorite.  Not only did I get to work with top notch wedding vendors, I was able to create my absolute favorite style of beauty.  Talk about the epitome of natural beauty–this is it bridal beauties. Style Me Pretty said is best, “in the world of gorgeous inspiration, this stunning, preppy shoot reigns supreme.”  

To create the bride’s look, I started with her eyebrows.  I trimmed, shaped and filled in the brows with a soft blonde brow powder.  Then, set with clear gel to ensure it stayed put.  Her face and eyes were primed and I started with her eye makeup first.  I used a sheer pink shadow on her lids and a chocolate brown shadow liner on the top with a deep plum shadow on the bottom.  Eyes were finished with mascara and a few individual false lashes.  Next, her skin was smoothed out using a matte foundation.  I used concealer only where needed; under eyes and to cover a few blemishes.  She was set with a powder and a sheer swipe of pink blush to the cheeks created a soft and romantic look.  Her lip color is brighter than it appears in the photos.  I used a berry lip stain topped with a pink gloss.
