5 Flawless Looks

A must read for any bride still undecided on her wedding day make-up.

We fell in love with this shoot by Bianca Harris and Erin Winn of The Look Beauty. We will let Bianca and Erin describe their looks for 2014.

Look 1. The natural looks on Lina and Ksenia (below) are clean and fresh with just a touch of soft smokiness in the eyes to take the look in to evening. The focus was on a flawless, glowing skin which is the most important aspect of any bridal look.

The orange lip was also featured, inspired by the hottest spring/summer makeup trend of the year. Its looks fantastic in photographs and is an easy way to add a pop of colour.

Look 2. The smokey eye/light lip combo featured on Clark (below) is one of the most popular looks requested by brides. By using a variety of deeper and warmer browns we created a smokey look that was not overpowering, but still created drama. A lighter or neutral lip is a low maintenance option that doesn’t compete with the darker eye.

Look 3. One of our favourite looks (featured on both Clark and Ksenia) is the classic matte red lip. Inspired by classic old hollywood, this is a look that will be forever timeless. We kept the eyes less structured to give the look a more modern appeal.

Look 4. For a fun, fresh, spring look inspired by the Pantone colour of the year, Radiant Orchid, we kept the smokier eye on Clark but added a light pop of colour with a lilac/pink shade on the lips. This is beautiful on both lighter and deeper skin tones.

Look 5. Finally, our deep blackened purple lip on Ksenia. Definitely for the more daring bride, this look channels the vampy flapper of the 20’s and paired with a wavy faux bob embodies the decadence of the era. Again, we wanted to keep the look modern, so we didn’t go as dark on the eyes as this look is traditionally seen.
