A Spring Bridal Makeup in shades of Purple, Bolingbroke Mansion in Radnor, Pa

spring makeup
One of our beautiful May brides had a purple theme for her garden wedding at Bolingbroke Mansion in Radnor, Pa. 
The secluded gardens at Bolingbroke make it a lovely place for pictures and an outdoor ceremony. Unfortunately, the weather forecast was not so good for the day. Luckily, there was a back up plan and lots of umbrellas on stand by. The ceremony would be held in the nearby chapel in case of rain.

My friend Cathy, a hairstylist, and I arrived at the bride's home in the morning to do her makeup and hair. We also did the mother of the bride and a bridesmaid. 


Bridal hair style
The bride chose a 1/2 up, 1/2 down hairstyle with curls and a small poof in the back which looked just perfect with her headband.

For her makeup, she wanted dramatic eyes with strip lashes and purple shadow to go with the purple theme of the wedding. I used creamy beige liquid and cream foundation to give her skin a flawless look. The eye shadow colors were shades purple and a pink for a nice springy look. Her eyes were lined in black with a thick line on the top to hide the band of the strip lashes. Black mascara helped to blend the natural lashes with the strip lashes. Soft pink blush and lipstick complemented her skin tone.

She looked absolutely gorgeous!!!

I put together a video of this makeup application so you can see the process and get the list of products I used. Click here to view it. 

Her bouquet was shimmering with color! It was a brooch bouquet that the bride made herself which included sentimental family brooches. All those brooches it a heavy bouquet.

Unfortunately, it did turn out to be a rainy day, but they got some awesome pictures using colorful umbrellas!
