Jenny's Elegant Bridal Makeup and Hair
Jenny's Bridal Makeup and Hair

Jenny was one of those sophisticated bride who wanted the runway look for her big day. She had the features to pull it off so I went with a contoured clean natural look. Her bouquet were bright red roses so wanted her makeup to complement the roses.

For her eyes I used a warm blush color and contoured out her crease. I then smoked her upper and lower lash line using a black pencil and a smokey gray color on top of the pencil.

I wanted her lips to be natural yet defined so I used a mauvey pink lip pencil and finished with a nude gloss on top.

For her hair we went with a side part and pulled everything back to bring out her great cheekbones. I then tied the rest of her hair back into a low chignon.

Nora's Chic Beverly Hills Wedding
Noras Wedding Makeup and Hair by Vincent Ford

Nora had her wedding in Beverly Hills and everything from her gorgeous gown to her bouquet had an element of class.

For her bridal makeup look I airbrushed her foundation as well as a highlighter on the tops of her cheeks and the bridge of her nose. For her eyes I kept the look natural focusing on individual lashes. I wanted to put the drama for this look on her lips. I chose a bright pink lipstick which complemented her personality.

I also had the pleasure to do her mother's makeup and hair. Like mother like daughter she also wanted a bright pink lip. For her hair I blow dried her hair making sure to give her the volume she wanted at the crown and leaving her bangs down.

Yelena's Beachside Wedding

It was a pleasure doing Yelena's makeup and hair for her special day. To get her bridal glow I airbrushed her bridal makeup with Temptu's S/B foundation. I then followed up the theme of her golden haired hues using a champagne shimmer on her lids with a slight contour using an espresso eyeshadow.

For her bridal updo I chose to wrap similar colored extensions around her ponytail. I then pinned in pieces creating a weave of beautiful curls. We finished off her wedding hairstyle with a feather hair piece.

Maria's Traditional Wedding
Maria's Wedding Makeup and Hair

Maria had her wedding in a Catholic Church and wanted to keep her look traditional but with a pop.

To achieve this I airbrushed her foundation to give her a flawless look. I wanted the focus to be on her eyes so I used a light shimmer wash over her lids. For contrast I contoured her crease using a chocolate brown and lined her upper lid with a black liquid liner. I then applied a full set of cluster lashes.

For her cheeks I used a shimmery apricot to give her more of a glow. I finished the look off with a nude/berry colored lipstick and a clear gloss on top.
