What: Wedding Makeup Trial
When: Saturday, November 5
This past Saturday sure was a blast! My friend Valerie came in for her wedding makeup trial. Yay! We've known each other for a very long time and I've always admired how Valerie is so calm, honest, and easy going. It definitely made for a super enjoyable session!
There were a couple of things that I kept in mind as we created Valerie's look:
1) She had a previous bad experience with false lashes, where they were uneven and made her look like a "crazy person" all day :)
2) She normally doesn't wear any makeup at all
On to the photos!
Before and After #1
Yes, I am extremely jealous of Valerie's jaw line!!!
Before and After #2
We went through two rounds of after shots, one with Valerie's hair up, and another
with her hair down.
I very lightly drew Valerie's brow shape using a brown pencil liner, then used a
brown/black powder to fill in any sparseness. I would really recommend any bride
to have their brows shaped prior to the Big Day, since the brows help so much in
framing the face.
The false lashes definitely don't make Valerie look like a crazy person :) Different
eye shapes require different types of lashes varying in length, thickness, and
shape. The pair that Valerie has on are a great fit!

Thanks so much for coming in yesterday Valerie! Can't wait to celebrate with
you and Kevin on your Big Day!!!
