Kim, you made for a beautiful bride!
I met Kim through a referral (there's no higher compliment), my friend of 10+ years was a bridesmaid and insisted to Kim she use me. So we met up about 30 days prior to the wedding for her trial and hit it off! Kim had known her husband to be since like, 6th grade! Life is crazy and brought them back together after all these years! I love stories like that, don't you?? Kim wanted a simple, elegant, up-do with volume! She doesn't usually wear eye make-up I talked her into a shimmery gold lid, very natural lashes, a subtle pink cheek and a natural pink lip. She looked b-e-autiful!
I also got to hang with her bridesmaids the day of the wedding and play with their hair and faces! Nicki, my friend who referred Kim to me, has hair for days! Like thick, beautiful, holds color like no other, never damaged hair. I really just hate her for that ;) So I knew her hair would basically do whatever I wanted it to. I curled with smaller iron and swept it to the side with a braid to add some detail. Nicki wanted her eyes darker but didn't want them to look small behind her glasses so I used demi-lashes & a combo of grays and purples on her lid. Angie, the maid of honor, wanted something to the side too but wanted hers pinned up. I love looks like these because they can be dressed up or dressed down. For her face, she wanted darker eyes so I used my staple liner to line the inside of her eyes, used fuller falsies and broke out my smoky palette for her lids. When going with a darker eye I tend to use a warmer cheek color. Sonja, another bridesmaid, who I've known for a while too - is a hair stylist so she had her hair covered but I got to do her make-up. For her look I used my clinique frosty blush & earth tone browns/golds on her lid. Completing the look with a darker pink lip! Each girl had a flower/bow included in their hair- do's too! Everyone look so pretty! I LOVE doing weddings but I am about done for 2016, just one more to go! However, I am booking 2017 weddings so if you are a Bride-to-be, let's chat about your date!
