Hi fabulous friends!
I have had the opportunity to work with some pretty incredible clients who have become really dear friends, and Harleen is definitely one of them! I had so much fun doing Harleen’s hair and makeup for all six of her wedding events this summer. On a few of the days my wonderful beauty team also joined to do the bridal party hair and makeup too.
I met Harleen in February for her hair and makeup trial and she came over with her cousin Shannon. I had so much fun with these two, and it felt like I was hanging out with old friends from my past! When I finally met Harleen in the summer for her wedding, we were both so excited for the week’s festivities to begin! Harleen is beautiful both inside and out and when it came to creating her hair and makeup looks, she let me do whatever I wanted! I had so much fun with her makeup colors and having carte blanche to try a different hair style each day.
For Harleen’s Mendhi makeup look, I used different hues of pinks and golds on her eyelids to give her a natural eye yet with a pop of pretty color! For her cheeks and lips, I used my favorite Giorgio Armani Spring collection colors. Airbrush makeup with an illuminator also gave her a flawless but glowing look. For her hair, I have her slight volume and then added in my hair extensions to give her a full side braid. When we finished the look, I decided to head out into the garden and fetch some pretty pink and yellow flowers to ordain her braid. I loved this look on her! Here are two instagram hair and makeup pictures which I took myself 😉
I cant wait to share the other events with you too, more on the way!
Harleen, thank you for being an absolute gem to work with!
