I've been trying to remember how exactly Shelby found me, but she reached out directly through my website to inquire about hair and makeup services for her wedding in early September last year. We had smooth conversation and she was clear with what kind of look she was expecting and I knew I could very easily recreate the looks for her. She wanted a glowy kind of makeup look and she made it clear that she needed the makeup to match her freshly done spray tan. Haha. I'm not sure if she's had a bad experience in the past for her to bring that up, but I reassured her that it was no problem. So while you see basically just her face in the before-and-after pics below, just know her body was pretty tan and I matched to that, not her fair self pre-tan. Also, lighting did slightly change too and you can tell in her hair color.
Anywho, Shelby and Kyle met through mutual friends and had one of their first group experiences together in an escape game. What a way to test personalities, right?!
Here is a list of makeup products I used in case someone is curious. And I can always give more detail if you need more that just a list.
Temptu perfect canvas airbrush foundation in no4&5 mixed, ColourPop pretty fresh concealer in Light Beige, Maybelline FitMe translucent powder to set, Benefit Hoola bronzer, Morphe warm blush palette, ABH x Amrezy highlight, Morphe brow pencil in Biscotti (make sure to give her more of a defined arch and longer tail), Kylie highlight on the lids, ABH Modern Renaissance palette on the eyes (taupe and saddle brown in crease and taupe blended into the dark brown on outer corners, taupe along lower lash line), KVD super pomade in Graphite as the liner with wings that are more out vs up, random waterproof mascara, Ardell no421 lashes (my faves!), and ColourPop lip liner in Skimpy topped with Morphe matte lipstick in Wifey (also one of my fave bridal lip colors!)
Shelby showed me some sneak peek photos because she had her bridal portraits done the day we did our trial and I was SHOOKETH at the photos. I know there is some magic in the photographer's eyes, but Shelby is such a beautiful lady and I know her wedding day photos will be just as stunning!
