When Shannon hired me to do the makeup for her wedding, I was so excited. I very rarely do just makeup! Usually, I do both hair and makeup for the bride and her bridal party, so this was going to be a rare treat for me!
Shannon had 8 bridesmaids and herself all needing their makeup done. What a beautiful group! Her sisters, friends, and future sister-in-law were all so sweet, funny, and kind - I had a great time getting to know each and every one of them.
Shannon was so gracious. She was relaxed all morning, and had very specific goals for her bridal makeup. She wanted a makeup look that was elegant with very little to no shimmer at all. Some brides LOVE shimmer (on their eyelids, on their cheekbones, on their brow bones, on the inside corner of their eye, all over! I've even had a Bride ask me to glaze her like a doughnut!) but Shannon wanted something more classic.
I spent time perfecting her skin. I cleansed her skin first with rose water, then started with a mattifying pore filler to even out her skin's texture. Next I used ShapeTape concealer that I blended out with a beauty blender followed by LORAC POREfection Powder. This created a gorgeous, even coverage, that I could then contour, adding a creme blush and light dusting of highlighter on her cheekbones.
All in all, I had an absolutely fantastic time helping to get Shannon ready to walk down the aisle.
