The Villa San Juan Capistrano - Romantic Bridal Makeup & Hair

I am so in love with everything about this wedding!! Not only is the couple, Liz and Ryan, so adorable together, but their wedding took place in the most romantic venue with the most amazing florals and decor (see vendors below). I first met Liz and Ryan when they were engaged for a styled wedding shoot (the images and video are featured on the home page). The shoot was a totally different style than their actual wedding, so it was fun getting to create both looks on Liz.

To achieve her dewy complexion, I airbrushed her foundation, blush, and bronzer. The formula I used was the Temptu S/B formula, which is long lasting and gives a very hydrated look. 

For her hair, we went with a style that was inspired by a picture she sent me. It was mostly down, but with some structure to help it last longer and be out of her face. She loves braids, so I made sure to incorporate that into the style.

I am so lucky to have the most amazing brides as clients! Lisa was a sweetheart the first day I met her at her trial. She was also taking her engagement photos that day. Using your engagement photos as a bridal trial is a great way to test how the makeup photographs. After the trial, we discussed subtle changes to enhance her look to stand out more on camera, while still looking natural.

On the wedding day, I airbrushed her foundation, bronzer, and contour with Kett Hydro airbrush makeup. Lisa told me that it held up even after her crying most of the ceremony! For her hair, we added extensions and created a half up style with curls. I am in love with how everything turned out! She was such a beautiful bride, and I'm so grateful for my part in her wedding.

Bridal Makeup - Blush Tones - Orange County Makeup Artist

Bridal Glam 

Here are the photos from one of my lovely brides, Beatriz! For Beatriz's bridal makeup, she wanted to incorporate the rose pink colors of her bouquet into her makeup.

We decided to go with soft, rose toned neutral colors on the lid, lightly smoked out so there are no harsh lines, and pair it with a rose colored lip. I added medium feathery lashes to make her eyes really stand out.

For her foundation, I used Mehron's HD celebre pro HD cream foundation. We had a bridal trial previously, so I knew what she wanted ahead of time, and there were no surprises on her wedding day!

I also did the makeup for the rest of her bridal party and family. Hair was styled by Erica Marni Edwards. Enjoy the photos!

 

Congrats again Beatriz! You were such a lovely bride, thanks so much for including me in your special day :)

Bridal Party Makeup

Wedding makeup for Mother of the Groom and family.

Here are some photos from my last wedding I worked on in Texas, right before leaving for California! I did the makeup for all of the ladies in the photos, and hair was done by Erica Marni Edwards (based out of Houston). 

Some of them chose to have their makeup airbrushed, while others did not. I love working with both traditional and airbrush makeup and can achieve similar results with both. Some people don't like the experience of feeling air blowing on their face, while others find it refreshing.  If you are a bride wondering which way to go, a bridal trial is a good way to test both out. 

Enjoy the rest of the photos! Photos taken by Amanda Freeman Photography. 


Airbrush Bridal Makeup for Bride Jean - Orange County, San Diego, Los Angeles Wedding Makeup Artist

I had the pleasure of doing the makeup for Jean and her bridal party. What a sweet and beautiful group of girls!

Gold and Silver Shimmery Eyes

For Jean's makeup, she wanted to incorporate gold and silver into her look, so using my Yaby pearl paint eyeshadows, I blended the shimmery gold and silver to create her unique look. We didn't do a bridal trial before hand, so I asked questions throughout to make sure I provided exactly what she was looking for. She loved it and even came back to participate in my makeup workshop months later!

Waterproof Airbrush Makeup

For her and her party's foundation, I used airbrush makeup by Kett Cosmetics for flawless, natural coverage. 

Beautiful Bride - Brittney's Wedding in Houston, TX

Here are the pictures from my bride, Brittney's, wedding in Houston, TX. Her beautiful photos were taken by Ama by Aisha.  Brittney was such a sweet bride with the most gorgeous green eyes! For her makeup, I used Kett Hydro Airbrush foundation to create a flawless base that doesn't look thick or heavy. I also used the airbrush to subtly emphasize the contours of her face.  For her eyes I did a very classic and timeless look that has just the right amount of drama to bring out the beautiful color in her eyes. Enjoy the pictures!
