Beautiful berry-lipped bride!
Just got a nice email from a bride I worked with back in September:
Hope all is well.
Here are some pictures of me (and Ben) from the wedding. I also found a “before” picture of myself. As much as I hate it feel free to use the before and all the other pictures. If you need some proof your jobs go the long haul let me know too. Ben totally shoved the cake in my face and even with wiping your makeup didn’t budge!
P.S. Feel free to give my email out to other brides if you need a reference too. I can totally vouch you were AWESOME. Oh and my bridesmaids LOVED you too!
So, here’s the before picture Jackie said she hated so much (I can’t imagine why; I think she looks completely adorable! But she wanted to look more “va-va-voom” than “adorable” so OK, I get it):
Jackie wanted a natural but slightly retro look: lined, neutral eyes and berry-toned lips. However, she confessed to me that she cannot STAND to wear lipstick, so I recommended that she select one of the Cover Girl Outlast lip stains that launched this year. They are really impressive – strongly pigmented, long-lasting, and not as drying as most stains. An oily salad dressing will wear away at the color, but otherwise, they stick around beautifully. And, as you read above, her lip color survived a cake-smoosh by her groom!
Here’s the finished look (I’m absolutely in love with her dress!):
I also did the makeup for all the bridesmaids pictured above, and Jackie’s mom (not pictured) – I’m hoping to get more pictures from this wedding because everyone looked so lovely AND they were so nice and fun. I’m glad they enjoyed my company as much I enjoyed working with them!
