Erin + Michelle
Erin found me online after searching for same-sex friendly wedding vendors. I absolutely hate that there is so much judgement on people who just want to be loved and feel loved by their person. I'm not going to get into a debate about things when all I want to say is LOVE IS LOVE IS LOVE. And if that's not what you agree with, then I'm sure you can just read elsewhere. Hate is not appreciated anywhere or in any form.
Now that that's out of the way, Erin wanted to set up a trial run before her wedding in November last year, so she came over to my place to try out the hair and makeup she had envisioned. I knew early on in our conversations that Erin was a special person because she works with kids as a social worker. She's got such a big heart and that made me click with her even more.
Below is a list of makeup products I used for Erin's requested look. I LOVE that she wanted a bold lip with her glowy face. So purrrrdy.
Temptu perfect canvas airbrush foundation in no2, Elf hydrating camo concealer in Fair Warm, Maybelline FitMe powder, Benefit Hoola bronzer, Morphe warm blush palette, Kylie highlighter, Morphe brow pencil in Jet, ABH Modern Renaissance palette on the eyes (light rust, gold shimmer, dark brown, barely dark brown on lower lash line, waterproof mascara, Kiss Shy lashes, and ColourPop lip liner in Bitchette topped with ColourPop matte lipstick in LBB.
And for Erin's hair, I curled it using a flat iron making it almost straight with a tiny bend and then used twists to secure half up style. She had mentioned using eucalyptus in hair on the wedding day and I know that will be gorgeous!
