Hi my beauties!
Las Vegas has some interesting wedding venues, but this one took our makeup and hair inspiration back to the classic beautiful California Coast at the Four Seasons Hotel on September 4th, 2016 where Michele said her “I do” to Edward.
I was super excited to hear I was working with the wonderful Susie and Will with Susie and Will Photography. They are amazing photographers that specialize in natural light and, also, do destination weddings!
It’s funny! Most brides always want a very light, natural look at first, then experience the trial session and get to wear their dream look for the day and realize they can do a little more by wedding day.
Michele was very specific with the look she wanted for her special day. We started with a trial session over the Summer with inspiration she chose of bronze glow, light makeup looks and a more sophsticated updo which pin curls seemed to be the theme.
Come wedding day, 7 bridesmaids and 1 bride, Michele had her bronze glow, with a more heavier eye look, but still kept the look and feel natural using more chocolate and champagne tones on her eyes.
Want to know why we dont offer makeup and hair online bookings? In the online world every growing and changing, we can book our wedding online with just a few clicks and never meet anyone who will be involved in the most important day of our lives! Sure, while it’s great to have everything right at our finger tips, to create a quick and easy way to get things done, I wanted to take the time out to create some insider tips on why its not always best just because it’s easy!
1. We want to get to know YOU!
Hair and makeup is SUCH a personal process! If you tell me you want me to make you look natural, natural to me is different from your type of natural, so it’s always good to spend a little time, with you, getting to know your personal makeup style and how you wear makeup on a daily basis.
2. Large Groups Take Time
With any wedding party of 4 or more, we have to make sure your bridesmaids dont out shine the bride! We never book a large party without at least speaking to the bride on the phone, if possible, and finding out more information about the group. Do they all have long hair, are there any ethnicity needs? Do any of them have extensions? These are all factors to discuss with your artist beforehand so your group can be on a timely session.
3. Your Personal Style
Like I said before, we want to get to know YOU! Why? If your having a rustic/vintage themed wedding, we dont want to give you a roaring 1920’s makeup and hair look. We go through a unique customization process during the online consultation to create a personal look for you using your wedding inspiration theme or photos.
4. Best Skin = Best Makeup
Yes, your makeup will only look as good as your skin! We need to know what you have been doing thus far for your skin so we an make some helpful suggestions to get it looking perfect! I dont care how good the makeup is, get on a proper skin care routine. Cleanse, Serum, Eye Cream and Moisturizer, AND dont forget to exfoliate 2-3 times per week. If you need help- ask me!
5. 2 Day Dirty Hair
Who all has heard to come to the wedding with 2 day dirty hair? While this works with some brides, this doesnt always work for everyone. If its fine or thin, we might want you to come with clean, dry hair. Again, this is why the trial and or consultation is so important so we an have the opportunity to tell you how to come prepared to best outcome!
There you have it, the top 5 reasons why we dont do makeup and hair online bookings! We have to consult with you so we can create a personal and intimate experience for your dream wedding! It’s as simple as that! Some may call it old fashion, but yes, coming from the midwest, there are just some values and traditions we have to stick to!
