Bridal Beauty

Spring is here and that means wedding season is just around the corner! We partnered with The Wedding Shoppe to showcase some inspiring bridal beauty, with the help of an incredible photographer, Haythem Lafhaj. Today we’ll chat with Mandy and Rachel, who teamed up to create the gorgeous look on our model Tearra.

Mandy, what was your inspiration for Tearra’s makeup and how did you achieve it?

We wanted to show a modern bridal beauty look with a soft smoky eye that really brought out Tearra’s features and colors that complimented her skintone. I used all Jane Iredale Mineral Makeup, a green beauty brand with the highest quality skin care grade ingredients. For makeup that lasts, I prepped the skin with Smooth Affair Primer, then used Glow Time BB Cream for a water-resistant foundation. On her eyes I used a blend of Purepressed Eyeshadows with warm tones in Rose Gold, Dreamy Pink, and Dark Suede. On her cheeks we wanted a dewy look that captured light, so I used Moonglow Bronzer and Whisper Purepressed blush. Lastly, on her lips I used Nutmeg to fully line the lips for staying power, and Yummy lip crayon, a lovely matte neutral.

Rachel, what was your inspiration and how did you go about designing the hair style?

Tearra has gorgeous natural curl so we wanted to play that up with a soft, romantic style. Especially for warm summer weddings, utilizing your natural texture works better than fighting it. I used a 3/4 inch and a 1 inch curling irons to make her own curl even fuller and more defined. I used Oribe Grandiose Mousse and Dry Texture Spray at the roots to add volume. From roots to ends I used Impermiable to control frizz. Then I finished with Apres Beach and Shine Light Reflecting Spray through the ends for moisture and sheen. The results were beautiful!
