Catherine's H&M Trial!

Who: Catherine
What: Hair & Makeup Trial
When: Saturday, Feb. 9

A couple Saturdays ago, Catherine and Pui-Yun came into the studio. Boy was it a reminder of how time flies by! I had worked on Catherine three years ago as a bridesmaid for Pui-Yun. Now, here she was, getting ready for her own wedding! :) Yay, how exciting! It was a lot of fun chatting and seeing what had happened since the three years we had seen each other.

Before and After #1
One of the key steps to creating this look for Catherine was in applying the airbrush foundation for a flawless complexion. I then did a little reshaping and filling in of the brows.

Before and After #2
I loved that Catherine was excited about trying out some bolder lashes. They fit her eye shape well and really helped to enhance her natural beauty!

Before and After #3

Onto the Hair!

Catherine had wanted an updo with her hair pulled to one side. After curling her hair, I created one french braid toward her right side, then added two additional braids to help give some texture and added interest.

One thing we talked about was how the length of someone's hair can really seem to "shrink" with curling. With this look, we really want the curls to drape well over the shoulder. Crossing our fingers that a few months later, Catherine's hair will be long enough for that effect. No trimming in the meantime :) I will also be able to relax the curls a little to give a bit more length.

Welp, that was fun! I'm so happy for you Catherine! Congrats on your engagement :)
