Darling Updo for your Engagement

HAIR + MAKEUP: “For this engagement look, we created a flirty updo with fishtail braid details and a chic scarf to add some flair. The makeup focuses on dewy skin and is complemented by a natural flush on the cheeks and soft taupes to make the eyes pop.” – Ally Richard, flAir Style Lounge

Relaxed & Radiant for your Bachelorette Party

HAIR + MAKEUP: “Our plan was to keep her natural, but emphasize her features. She has beautiful natural curls, so we kept those intact and pinned them back with fun, colorful bobby pins. The makeup consisted of well-prepped skin using face oils and a touch of concealer. We touched her cheeks with a lilac and magenta toned blush, perfect for tan to darker skin tones. We enhanced her lash line with bronze tones and lots of lashes! To complete the overall style, we used a long wearing lavender shade on her lips.” – Ana Bazan, BeautyMark Agency

Natural Vibes

HAIR + MAKEUP: “The natural tones of the pampas grass, and sun-washed colors of the florals inspired this natural, boho look. I wanted to keep going with a romantic highlight that glows softly like a golden sunset. Lips were kissed with a soft coral. Keeping with the boho vibe, messy waves were created to loosely frame the bride’s face.” – Codie LePors, Makeup ATX

Fun & Flirty

HAIR + MAKEUP: “We wanted to create a fun, flirty and girly look for this bride. The hair was pulled up with an effortless textured high ponytail to complement the shoulders and neckline with the off-shoulder gown. The makeup was focused around the lips with a bright, bold lip with coral undertones for a sweet, summer vibe. The skin was kept clean and simple with feline thin eyeliner to enhance the bold lip.” – Jazmine Wallace and Caitlin Webster, Jose Luis Salon

Earthy Bohemian

HAIR + MAKEUP: “I created two braids on both sides that swept to the side to become one large braid for the ultimate boho look. For the makeup, I created a smoky, olive brown toned eye with soft rosy cheeks and a red earthy toned lip.” – Kerri Beard, LUSTREbella

Fresh & Modern

HAIR + MAKEUP: “The braid crown is something that is usually tied to a more boho look, but we wanted to elevate it by pairing it with a sparkly gown and a bold makeup look. For her makeup, we wanted to keep it very natural, but certainly wanted to add a glam factor with her silver and blue eye shadow. Just like on your wedding day, it’s nice to look like your everyday self but it’s always fun to add a little something extra for your special day!” – Mindy Orsak Fuller, Gloss Beauty Boutique

Blushing Bride

HAIR + MAKEUP: “There is nothing more beautiful than radiant skin on a blushing bride.We used a color palette of pinks, coral and bronze for the eyes, lips and blush. The look was finished with a champagne cream illuminator. With an open deep v back to the dress, we wanted to create cascading romantic waves. Sweeping off the face with a voluminous half-updo of pinned curls and flowing waves down the back, creates a natural balance with the dress.” – Jana Peled and Peggy Jones, Level 12 Salon
