Wedding Makeup for a Friend’s Big Day
A friend’s wedding makeup for her big day
There’s so many reasons why I love doing what I do for a living. And why I am so in love with doing wedding makeup.
It’s so much fun being part of someone’s big day.
The initial restless excitement of all the bridesmaids is simply contagious. From the “oohing” and ”aahing” when they see themselves in the mirror…The mom / aunt / sister making sure everything is in order with the most tender love and care.. How special it is to observe these things?!
Then finally – the quiet moment the bride sits in my chair and it all starts to sink in and become real for her. It is her actual wedding day. Its here and she is about to walk down the aisle right into her brand new life.
I love it all. Mostly, I love that I get to have a part in preparing her for that big step.
What really puts the cherry on the ice cream for me is when I get to play that part for a dear friend. When you get to do what you love and then for someone you love?! It’s just the best thing ever. Who can call that work?
So, Last year October I had the amazing opportunity of doing Chantelle’s wedding makeup. And today I get to share it with you ladies.
For Chantelle we opted for a natural look with individual eyelashes and neutral eyeshadow. The main focus being a trendy deep red lip which was complimented by short red gel nails.
Simple, elegant and classic. Which I think should always be a go to for wedding makeup.
Personally, I think it all came together beautifully and that she looked just amazing.
I know, I know. Some of you might say I am bias because she is my friend. Have a look at the photos below ,then you can decide for yourself.
