This blog is not about fairy tale weddings per se; instead it’s dedicated to the Fairy Bride. Every once in a while I receive a call from a bride with a whimsical fairy-like spirit. She wants to sparkle and shimmer on her wedding day. She craves a natural makeup application, a soft messy up-do/or loose waves and dewy skin to give her that doe-eyed fairy-like air of ingenuity.
This blog is designed for her because Wedding Makeup should make a bride feel like the most beautiful version of herself on one of the most magical days of her life. Continue Reading…

Today’s Bohemian Chic bridal beauty inspiration comes from free-thinking brides that shun convention and trust their wildest instincts, and love natural bridal looks.
Bridal Makeup & Hair updated to a chic, boho aesthetic.
With its free-spirited prettiness, no other style quite compares to Boho-Chic. For me, it is a style of fashion makeup that take elements from Bohemian and pre-Raphaelite influences. Chic, bohemian style is about easy breezy makeup and “un-done” hair. No frills, no fuss, just a laid back glow and soft tresses that you can take from day to night and of course, from ceremony to reception!

If you think pastels are just a pale, sweet cliché, let this be a lesson. Romantic, soft hues and delicate pastels create a gorgeous bridal makeup look!
How to make the trendy, yet classic, pastel beauty look wearable for your wedding.
Rose, blush, pink – in fact, all shades of spun-sugar and ballerina slippers, dominated the faces of the models walking the summer ’14 runways. And if you are not sure how to create this look, no worries. Staying on trend will be as easy as picking up an eye shadow palette that contains both a taupe and soft pinks to create the look.
- To avoid tired-looking eyes, go lighter on the brown when applying on the bottom lids.
- If you want to play around with the trend, but are looking for a more toned down romantic look, you can use pale pink to achieve a smashingly hip effect.
- Start with a monochromatic palette. For cheeks, take inspiration from fresh blooms and pretty pastel hues of pale, blush toned roses.
What makes pastel pink lipstick not look like something you’d see in a Nicki Minaj music video?
Undertones that are less white and more purple.
- Tone down pastel eye shadow with a heavy black lash and a nude lip.
- Opt for pearl or crystal, shimmery shadows in delicate pastel shades for a lovely sophisticated finish to your bridal eyes.
- Complete your soft romantic makeup look with a stylish tousled ‘do.
