Miranda and Jon got married at Castle Green in Pasadena on May 26th 2013. My team and I loved getting the bride and her bridal party ready in their hotel room, and the bride was all smiles on her wedding day!
Miranda contacted me early in the new year to book me as her makeup artist and hairstylist for her wedding day. It was so much fun getting to know this gorgeous lady! Miranda is a natural beauty and the difficult part of this was that every single hair style from a high updo, to a low side messy bun, to a half up half down hairstyle looked so fabulous on her. For her wedding day makeup, I wanted to give her glowing skin and used my go-to Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation as used it through my airbrush machine. Her skin looked flawless! I gave her smokey eyes and used charcoals, purples and soft chocolate colors and blended them all together. For her cheeks, I used a cream pinky toned blush and for her lips, Miranda wanted a pinky peach lips color that would stand out in pictures but still look natural. For Miranda’s hair, I had to set her hair a couple of hours before to create that voluminous side sweep and soft waves. The beautiful bride also wore our antique hair piece from our Brides and Hairpins collection.
Miranda is now a good friend of mine and I feel so blessed to have created her hair and makeup look on her special day!
Wishing you both a beautiful marriage adventure!
Lots of love,
