Amy's Wedding

I wanted to post some pictures of my friend Amy's wedding from Memorial Day weekend. I did her makeup and her mother's makeup.  They looked so beautiful.

This was the first time I had an actual makeup gig! Tip for next time: Bring a personal fan! LOL! It was so hot in the hotel room and we were rushing because we got started on the makeup kinda late. Anyway, I was sweating so bad...not a good look for me! HA!! I managed to live through it and so did Amy!

Now on to the makeup...

Amy wanted to go for a more dramatic look for her big day versus the traditional soft brown and peach colors. She wanted red lips and a purple soft smokey eye...and that's what I gave her. LOL! Not many women can rock a red lip....Amy can rock it like no one! On her cheeks, I kept it simple with a natural color since she had so much drama in the eyes and lips! Woo hoo!

As for her mom, I did a pink/light plum combination on her eyes which went really well with her skin tone. For her cheeks, I used a cool pink/plum color and for her lips I went with a wine color and applied it lightly.

Overall, it was a lot of fun and great experience for me! I could see myself doing this on a full time basis.  

I wish I could have gotten some good closeup shots of the eye makeup.  If I do get my hands on any, I will be sure to post.
I love this picture. She was on the balcony looking down at everyone...getting ready to walk down.

Another Fave Pic...
