Weekend full of weddings.....

This past weekend I got a chance to work with one of the sweetest brides. Saturday I woke up to pouring rain and immediately thought of my poor bride, as I drove over I hoped her spirits were still high and that perhaps it would stop by the time she was done her hair.

I arrived at her parents house a few minutes before she did and spent some time setting up and chatting with her mom and aunts which was was interesting because everyone was so relaxed which is rare.
When they arrived her sister hopped in my chair fresh faced and we began. She explained that since this day was simply the ceremony and she normally didn't wear a lot of makeup that keeping it neutral would be best.

So we kept it to golds & browns with minimal liner and clean simple lips and cheeks...

Then it was on to the bride. She also wanted to keep it fairly simple so I decided on champagnes and browns. It was daytime so she didn't want super dramatic but I really think this combination played up her eyes well. We added half lashes and a bit of liner, gloss and blush and she was set!



The following day I arrived at their hotel to get all the bridesmaids and the bride ready for the reception. This time I had a bit of help (thanks Anjali) so we were able to take our time. The Indian outfits were purple and ivory and her reception color was purple so we decided to play up the purple theme. All the girls were so warm and friendly that it made my job so much easier!

Bridesmaids



For the reception the bride wanted a bit more intensity. We used Beautiful Iris, Satellite Dreams, Fig & Nylon shadows from MAC to create this look. We again added the half lashes and more liner (MUFE aqua eyes), clean lips and a touch of blush (nars Orgasm & Peachykeen by MAC). I filled in and cleaned up her brows and added a few coats of mascara and voila!


Part of why I love doing what I do it to see the smile on my clients faces after. I had a blast with this bride, her family and friends and wish A&N all the best in their new life together.

Great work! I have a question- do you also do hair? Or do you know if Anjali does if you don't? Was looking for some hair people for my mom and sister (and possibly a bridesmaid or two) for my wedding. Email me or let me know if you are interested or know of anyone. Thanks!

Gorgeous! Love the before and after :) I may h ave to give face atelier a try. Just a question, did you go to makeup school to become a makeup artist or are you self-taught? I'm KIND OF considering doing makeup part-time. I'm self taught but wondering if it's raelly worth it.

I'm a desi from toronto as well :)

I know the bride - she's an amazing person and you did a great job with her makeup!

Farah on June 16, 2010 at 11:22 PM said...

Amanpreet- i only do basic hair at this time im working on it ;) sorry as for anjali im not sure if shes offering hair yet you should ask her.

Makeupholic- Yes i actually did go to school to become a certified makeup artist but i know some very talented MUA's that didnt. If you have a passion do your research and practice a lot its totally doable!!

Stephanie- you are so sweet! Thanks for the kind words im actually in BC every summer for at least a week so you never know ;)Its my hometown so im always up for visiting.

Sandhi- Thanks so much :) She really was an amazing girl.
