They are getting married in September and have sort of a vintage theme so they wanted pictures done that they could display at their reception. Megan did a lot of research and came up with all these amazing situations and ideas for what she wanted, I in turn did a lot of research on vintage period makeup and hair.
Ill be honest and say that this was the first time I ever did hair for a shoot and I was so nervous because not only did I have to do hair but it had to be vintage style.. Yikes! I decided to take what i had learned in the awesome hair session I took with the Lift Beauty Boutique girls and what I had learned from some youtube vids and just run with it.
I did and it worked out pretty well if I do say so myself! The bride to be was thrilled about the final look and I cant wait to see how the pro pics turned out. We were able to get one pro pic back and I took some behind the scenes pics throughout the day.
What do you guys think??
Behind the scenes....
For the makeup I kept the skin super light with a touch of Face Atelier foundation, ConcealFX concealer from CoverFX & Cargo's Blu_Ray pressed Powder. I filled in her brows and added a matte wash of skin tone color on her lids with a medium brown in the crease. We played up the liner with Mac's fluidline and added awesome lashes from NYC to add extra drama. The cheeks got a slight wash of pink and then the lips were lined with a bright red lip liner by Sephora and filled in with Vasanti's USA lipstick (the ultimate red in my opinion!).
The hair was curled using my small and medium barrel Amika irons. The front section was done first and pinned in places while i finished the rest of her hair, once I was done I took out the pins and brushed out the hair. The curls came out SO perfect that we really didn't need much styling so we added a flower to one side and sprayed the heck out of it. Voila!
I'm excited to see the final pro pics and add this amazing shoot to my portfolio!
