Wedding Makeup and Hair for a May Bride

I had the pleasure of doing makeup for a beautiful May bride this past Saturday. The morning was cloudy, damp and chilly but spirits were bright and warm in the salon as the bride and her bridesmaids got their hair and makeup done. Many of the bridesmaids chose braided hairstyles. There was a mix of up styles and down styles. They looked amazing!

The bridesmaids would be wearing pale blue dresses. Right on trend!    click here for Pantone color of the year.
We chose to do makeup was clean and fresh with a gentle smokey eye and a nude pink lip. As always, I want the skin to look flawless and glowy.

Look at that creamy gorgeous skin!

The brides hairstyle had a fabulous reto feel about it. She wore a sparkly comb on one side. She would be wearing a veil that she would attach later.

We kept her makeup clean and fresh too. The bride wanted to make her own lashes look longer so she wouldn't have to worry about false lashes. I used waterproof mascara, of course, and Cherry Blooms lash fibers to help extend her lashes a bit. The warm neutral eye shadow helped her blue eyes pop. Gorgeous!

I like to check how the makeup looks with and without a flash.

She has color and stays warm looking with the flash. The makeup look lovely in both photos. I thought of this beautiful in the afternoon as the sun broke through the clouds. The dreary morning turned into a sunny afternoon!


All the best to the bride and groom!
