Wedding Showcase: Elizabeth and Brett

I’m so excited to share our first bridal showcase of 2012!

Elizabeth and Brett were married this past February 25th, 2012.

I first met with Elizabeth for her trial run a few days before her wedding date, we booked her last minute, but I’m so glad that we could accommodate her!

We spent a few hours deciding on her perfect hair and makeup look, and made any tweaks that were necessary to make sure that she would look flawless for her wedding day.

The morning of her wedding, I brought along stylist Jessica to help me as we had to not only get Elizabeth ready, but her maid of honor, bridesmaids and her mother as well! It was a busy morning, but we were able to get everybody’s hair and makeup done and photo ready!

Elizabeth’s wedding colors included a beautiful shade of turquoise, so she wanted to incorporate that look into her makeup. At the trial, we decided that we didn’t want to be too dramatic and take away from her natural beauty. For her wedding day, I chose to do a soft smokey eye with hints of turquoise and gunmetal grey, I even added a touch of gold sparkle on her lids to add warmth and a hint of “something extra”. For even more drama, we added a strip of false lashes for a lush effect.  To balance with her smokey eyes, I paired them with a nude lip with just a hint of pink and a clear gloss to top it off.

I want to thank Elizabeth once again for letting us be a part of her special day! It seems that their wedding went perfectly as planned, and after a relaxing honeymoon, we are happy to hear Elizabeth and Brett are now settling into their new home in Alaska.

Congrats Elizabeth and Brett!
