Blaire has earned a special space among our Bride of the Month ranks for August 2012! I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to show off Dani Leigh’s work once again as she always impresses me with her creative photography. Blaire was introduced to me through our friends at Angelberry Organics and we just clicked. It is always a pleasure to become friends with my clients and give them an even higher level of comfort. I was so excited to start designing her makeup look for the wedding but we had a minor dilemma. We had her trial in the middle of winter and her inspiration photos sported a “beach, bronze” look. I laughed when I saw that orange lip she wanted to try, not in a mean way! I told her this was going to be silly but it would help her see the look better so I grabbed a foundation about 2 shades darker then her “winter” bod and put it all over her face and neck. It was honest ridiculousness and normally we wouldn’t suggest it. She was going to be tan for her wedding and it just put the makeup into better light. Especially an orange lip stick and bronze color pallet which no matter how hard you try just makes you look dead with pale winter skin. haha Blaire was awesome and trusted me with my strange antics and she loved the look. On the wedding day her bridesmaids all received black/navy, bronze, and a little warm pink smokey eyes. It looked stunning with their navy dresses and complimented Blaire’s more subtle eye with the pop lip.
As always I take a moment to thank Blaire and Brooks for letting me apart of their wedding day. You both are so amazing! I love staying in touch with you and seeing the fun married photos on facebook, like Brooks grilling in a white robe haha! I wish you both the happiest and fun-filled marriage. Thank you!!
