Liela's Wedding

As I began to unpack my kit, the feeling of being a part of two becoming one always excites me no matter how many weddings I do. My Bride and family friend Liela was calm, relaxed, and ready to say "I do" to the love of her life! It was a beautiful Friday morning in North Jersey as I began the makeup applications on the bridesmaids. I love being able to meet the women who support and love the bride, telling me their stories on how they met, where they are in their lives now, and the final look in the mirror after I complete their final touches. My favorite moment is when Liela sat in my chair. I take my time, and focus all my attention to her to create her flawless bridal look.

I created a smoky & sultry look for Liela. For her bridal trial, which was the day of her bridal shower, we created a softer smoky look with a natural lip color, but on the wedding day, when her hair was completed and I saw her dress in person, I knew we had to add a little more drama to the eyes and create her perfect red lip with Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Palette.
