Brides and Hairpins Accessories Summer 2013 Lookbook

Brides and Hairpins, LLC is our online bridal accessories store. My very own brides inspired me to start this beautiful collection of bridal hair pieces featuring hair flowers, crystals, headbands, feathers, birdcages and veils. I wanted my brides and brides around the world to be able to go to a place online where they can find all their headpieces for their special day. The collection is broad to cater to brides who would like to see different accessory options and how to wear them. We shot beautiful Alexa on a gorgeous sunny day to showcase some of our beautiful pieces. I couldn’t put all the pictures up as there are just far too many stunning ones to choose from. Please visit Brides and Hairpins for inspiration and to see what we are up to!

For Alexa’s makeup look I used airbrush makeup to give her that flawless finish and used soft corals and peaches on her eyes, cheeks and lips and used a lot of highlighting to give her THAT glow. I also used lash inserts to give her eyes that extra ‘pop’ but also allowing her to still look natural. For her hair I did a soft romantic updo but wanted to create a look that was a little loose and organic.

Please tell me I'm not imagining the resemblance between Alexa and Kim Kardashian! I think its something about the color of their eyes, shape of their eyebrows and beautiful full lips.

So naturally I used makeup looks I have seen and loved on Kim Kardashian as my inspiration. You can watch my transformation here….

Alexa also reminded me of Jennifer Lopez who has a similar bone structure. I loosely modeled my updo after the classic look that Jennifer Lopez has worn.
