Country Bride | Giracci Vineyards and Farms | Orange County Makeup Artist

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.

Outdoor Wedding in Nestldown Los Gatos - Bay Area Makeup & Hair

Esther & Tyler 

I am SO honored to have been a part of this special and absolutely beautiful celebration of Esther and Tyler. Esther is my sister in law, and she and Tyler have been a part of our family for years. Not only was I asked to be a bridesmaid, but I was in charge of hair and makeup for the majority of our bridal party! I had an amazing day from the morning getting them ready, to the partying afterwards!

The wedding took place in the most romantic setting in the woods of Los Gatos, CA. The ceremony was truly magical! Music played throughout the trees as we watched Esther descend the steps to meet Tyler, her dress glittering in the light with every step. Between Esther and Tyler, and the guests who all clearly love them so much, the tears were almost non stop! WATERPROOF makeup is a must in these situations!

Wedding Makeup & Hair

For Esther's bridal makeup, I used my trusty Kett Fixx Creme foundations, correctors, and blushes to create a long lasting, waterproof finish. Esther loves neutrals and earth tones, and prefers a very natural hair and makeup look. I used my Viseart matte neutral eyeshadow palette to add subtle depth to her eyes. I then applied a thin layer of waterproof black gel eyeliner to the upper lash line and smoked it out for a softer look. For her lashes, we opted for some individual lashes, focusing mostly on the outer corners to give a subtle, cat-eye like lift. For her hairstyle, we created long lasting loose waves by setting them ahead of time. 

Once the look was complete and she put on her dress, I had to stand back in awe! She was such a stunning bride!!
