When: Saturday, March 24
Where: Pasadena, CA
Grace definitely came with an idea for a makeup look that she wanted. As a makeup artist, this is actually something that is REALLY helpful. It gives me an idea of the style a client likes, along with how dramatic they are willing to go with their own makeup look. She had sent the bride, Valerie, a photo of the makeup look she liked, who then forwarded it to me several weeks before the wedding.
We came up with a look that had a slightly more extreme smokey outer edge compared to the other bridesmaids, but still worked really well with Grace's specific eye shape.

Stay tuned for Miranda's makeup application!
