“With a fresh and glowing face, a subtle pop of lilac was added to the lid and lower lash line. With no top liner and wispy lashes, it let the color really show up and pull the entire look and feel together. Going with more of a whimsical and romantic vibe, I didn’t want to do anything too heavy on the eyes, face or lips. So I chose the perfect soft matte peachy-pink for her lip color. With a soft, yet prominent highlight on the face, it really lets her natural glow shine through and pulls the entire look together.” – Lauren, byLomuns
“I often mix multiple colors to get the look I want. Layering bright pops of color on top of a dark cream eyeshadow, a scatter of glitter over the eyelid – makeup should be fun! For this photo shoot, the focus was a plum palette. I immediately knew I wanted a bold lip but wanted to create an overall look that was unexpected.” – Taylor, Rouge and Rosé
“The look I was going for is romantic, elegant, with a twist of modern. For her eyes, I used a medium warm brown shadow with a hint of copper tones to enhance her gorgeous blue eyes and I paired it with full-long false lashes and a smudge of liner top and bottom. I finished with a white liner on the waterline to brighten her eyes and a soft shimmer shadow. Her brows were lightly filled in to achieve a more natural look. I accentuated her cheekbones by contouring and using a warm gold highlighting powder. The floral colors in the shoot inspired her lip color — a custom blend that worked well with her skin tone and surrounding colors. My team lead stylist created an upstyle that was romantic and modern. Parted down the middle with soft pieces to frame her face and a low twisted pulled out bun. It was soft and textured to complement the entire bridal look.” – Wendy, WZ Beauty Studio
“My inspiration for this look was the season. I love when fall/winter sets in — that’s when you can play up your colors. I love using bold lipsticks such as burgundy, deep oranges and reds. They definitely make a statement. Being able to tie in the colors of the wedding day into your look is a fun way to bring everything together.” – Ashley, Ashley Drew Artistry
“For this look, I wanted to keep her look very fresh and clean. I wanted her to have the desirable glow that we all love, but mainly dial in on enhancing her natural beauty. I really focused on her skin with the makeup. We went with a metallic palette here — working with bronze, rose gold and champagne tones. I really feel like these accentuated her best features and would really convey the organic feel that we were hoping for. And lastly, LASHES! We really layered her lashes to give her voluminous and fluffy lashes to bring out her eyes. I love the softness of this look, paired with a really clean updo. It’s so chic and modern, yet also timeless.” – Brittany, Brittany Jones Beauty
“I wanted to give a new spin on a half up/half down with combining it with a low ponytail. For her makeup, we wanted to make her eyes pop! To make blue eyes pop, oranges and purples really achieve this.” – Kayleigh, The Styling Stewardess
“A gold eye, dewy skin, nude lips and glamorous Hollywood waves was our look of choice for the natural beauty! We loved how the hair and makeup paired seamlessly with the illusion neckline and the ear tuck added a touch of elegance. This perfect nude lip was created with Taste Lip Paint in Exposed, MAC liner Boldly Bare, and Bite gloss in Honey.” – Kailey, Etoilly Artistry
“A chin length bob is curled away from the face, then brushed into place and pinned back on one side to create a gorgeous short hair ‘do with an Old Hollywood vibe. The shorter length gives this style plenty of volume, plus it works well with the high neckline of the gown. Bonus? It provides a bit of extra flirt factor! The look also features naturally glam makeup with warm, glowy skin, toasty coffee shades on eyes, a double layer of wispy lashes and flushed pink lips and cheeks to pull it all together.” – Jennifer, Lip Service Makeup
“I wanted to emphasize the bride’s natural features using semi-dewy finish products on her skin. The key to achieving this look? Prep the skin properly! I used rose water, serum and deep moisturizer. I made her eyes pop using copper and gold colors and the right eyelashes to accentuate the romantic look in her eyes.” – Veronica, Styles by Vero
“Not all brides can rock the straight back look, but this bride could! I teased the top for the perfect height with a sleek updo. For the updo, I created volume first and put vintage pin curls around the volume to give it the perfect vintage glam! With a stunning hair pin and veil it was the perfect updo for such a beautiful shoot!”- Laci, Tease to Please Hair and Makeup
“We created a swoon-worthy, undone updo with face-framing tendrils to showcase the dainty lace embellishments of this gown. The bride’s makeup consisted of rose-flushed cheeks, a touch of highlighter, and a soft lip stain which come together to create a perfect no-makeup, makeup look.” – Jordan + Reilly, Grand Slam Glam
“I utilized all matte colors to keep the attention on the color scheme. I used a cream color lid with soft browns on her crease to transition into a warm rust color. Smokey brown liner created a more romantic affect. I finished with cream waterline under eyes to open up her eyes.” – Andrea, Tousled Studio
