Tori was another super fun bride would found me through social media and contacted me directly via my website. We got to chatting and she wanted to set up a trial run a little over a month before her wedding at the end of September last year. We got to chatting to get to know each other and she told me how her and Mitchell met and it's kind of a cute story and fate definitely had her hand involved. One of her best friends married his brother. Sadly, they are divorced now, but their then-union forced Tori and Mitchell to hang out together more often and that kind of sparked their first romantic flame. Who knows if they'd even know each other if that didn't play out.
I don't know if those reading this come here to find out origin stories or just want to see makeup before-and-afters, but here's a list of makeup products in case that is you who's interested.
Temptu s/b airbrush foundation in 4&5 mixed (but maybe only use 4 next time), Elf hydrating camo concealer in Light Peach, Maybelline FitMe powder in Medium (use the light one next time), Benefit Hoola bronzer, Morphe warm blush palette, ABH x Amrezy highlight (find a lighter one next time), Morphe brow pencil in Biscotti, ColourPop Bare Necessities palette on the eyes (vanilla on the eyes, typical medium brown in crease and dark brown from bottom left on outer corners- make sure to bring the dark color up more in the crease and lower lash line), KVD super pomade in Walnut as the liner, random waterproof mascara, Kiss Shy lashes (maybe use no11 next time), and ColourPop lip liner in Lumiere topped with Juvia’s Place lipstick in Chic
As you can see in that list of products, I've already been making myself some notes. And Tori was on the fence about adding a glitter topper for the wedding day, so there may be more sparkle when you see her face again in the wedding photos.
For her hair, I curled it using a standard curling iron and pinned the one side back making sure it stays on her back. She wanted that effortless wave kind of style and I love it when the hair cooperates to achieve it. We all know hair has a mind of its own!
