The makings of a beautiful bride:
This beautiful bride knew exactly what she wanted when it came to her makeup. She wanted something a little more dramatic than natural, but not quite smoky on her eyes. And what the bride wants, the bride gets!
To accomplish her dream eye make-up, we used a matte warm chocolate brown on her upper lid with a darker matte brown and and a matte violet in her crease. On her lid we applied a warm beige and blended the entire eyelid for a flawless transition. And as the bride requested, a slight wing completed the eyelid makeup!
In case anyone was wondering what we use on a daily basis, I listed out some of our favorite products below!
We all know matte lips are definitely more popular these days. Matte lipsticks stay on a lot longer and don’t smudge easily ,making them a great choice for long wear. But wearing a little shine and gloss now and then is always an exciting change!
One of my favorite gloss lipsticks is Stila’s Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss. This lip gloss is ultra pigmented and long lasting, while still being incredibly moisturizing. This means you get the burst of color all day while not having to worry about drying out your lips!
Color in photo is Fuchsia Vinyl.
The best part about doing makeup is seeing how happy the person is with the final product. We love seeing our brides shine on their special day, they deserve it!

If you haven’t tried the True Cream Aqua Bomb by belif, I highly suggest you do so ASAP! This gel/cream is by far my favorite skin product. It’s super light weight and doesn’t have a thick or creamy texture like most face moisturizers. It’s more of a gel-based cream that refreshes and hydrates your skin while providing a cooling sensation. It’s the perfect morning face moisturizer to use after you wash your face, because that cooling sensation helps wake you up and feel rejuvenated for the day!
It also works great for minimizing pores and improving skin elasticity. And don’t worry, the True Cream Aqua Bomb works for any type of skin whether you have oily, dry, or combination skin. Don’t take our word for it, try it out!
The great thing about a nude lip is that it works for every occasion and every outfit. It adds the final touch of completion by defining the lips in an effortless way. And let’s be honest, the best makeup is the kind that enhances your existing features by just making them a bit more pronounced and eye-catching.
Below are some of our favorite Nude Lipsticks on some of our favorite clients!
Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil – Honey Berry
This product is my all time favorite nude lipstick. It’s a long-lasting matte lipstick, but it doesn’t feel like every other matte lipstick out there. It still has moisture to it so you don’t feel like your lips are drying up and cracking. This is because Bite Beauty uses a hydrating formula that is infused with all natural food-grade ingredients, which means you can literally eat this stuff it’s so good!
MAC Viva Glam Lipstick
MAC’s Viva Glam is an oldie but goodie. It has a lustre finish giving you that simple sheen of lipstick while maintaining a natural look. Who doesn’t love a staple MAC product to carry in their purse at all times?
Kylie Cosmetics Dolce K Lip Kit
Kylie Cosmetic Lip Kits can be a hit or miss for some people as the formula used can dry out the lips. A tip for this issue it putting on a light layer of chapstick about 5 minutes prior to putting on the liquid lipstick. This maintains the moisture in your lips while capitalizing on the high-pigmented lipstick. Not to mention that these liquid lipsticks stay on your lips forever! You’ll rarely even need to touch up.
My favorite color is Dolce K, especially for those with a darker complexion!
