Valerie's Wedding Makeup Trial!


Who: Valerie
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. 

   Before and After #3
   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.

   Before and After #6
   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!
