Bridal Trial gives our brides a chance to see how they envisioned to look on their wedding day. Sometimes we don’t know whether we like it or not until we try it out. Other times, we can’t decide what we like better. For yesterday’s bridal/weddingtrial, we tried out a few different eye/lip and hair possibilities for Vanessa’s upcoming big day in 2015! Finally, a light/flawless airbrush, bronze/rosy look + a side swiped half up-do is the winner!
– 6th September 2014 Wedding Makeup and Hair by Toni Brides at Queen Mary, Long Beach, CA.
A beautiful wedding day on Queen Mary, long beach. Bride Natalie and her wedding party were getting ready at a room where movie Titanic was shot at. To enhance her already gorgeous feature, I did a purple smoky eye. Paired it with a smooth finish full size low updo. 🙂 For Mother of bride’s, who has sensitive eyes, I chose to only enhance her natural lash line, and added some neutral tone eye shadow color to even make her blue eyes pop more. For one of her bridesmaids Mia, I went a little heavy and achieved a smoky, contoured look. Her husband said she looks like Kim Kardashian after makeup 😉
Hope you all had a wonderful first Saturday of September!
Here we go, another super busy week had past, now I finally had a chance to sit down in front of my laptop and share some Wedding Makeup and Hair from last weekend with you 🙂
For our beautiful bride Sarah, a semi-messy low up-do and a natural makeup with neutral brown/peach tone colors are just perfect for her, with a little bit black wing-liner and individual lashes, the Big Day look is done :))
For her sister, I went with the same theme but more subtle. After all, we want the bride to stand out the most 😉 Her hair is a little shorter than shoulder length. She loves braids(aren’t we all do?!), and wanted hair to be completely off her face so her little 6 month old baby won’t grab and pull. I’m so glad I was able to achieve what she wanted and more by giving her an up-do with her ‘hard to hold curls’ short hair.
Everyone is happy!
Tips for hair: If you have hair that doesn’t hold curls well, an up-do for your wedding day is highly recommended. With some high and low lights, it will give you more textured look too!
So much happened last weekend and I can’t wait to share all of them with you! After the successful 5 trials and a wedding is over, now I’m going through all my photos and sharing what I took from the past Saturday’s wedding with you:)
We went for a Half up-do with hair-extension for Sara’s wedding day hair, and a rosy/gold natural tanned airbrush makeup look. For her bestie Jenny, I did a natural look to go with the theme.
Loving how everyone was complimenting her makeup and hair left and right to me while she wasn’t in the room! Even the elders!!!
2nd August 2014 Wedding! Bridesmaids Makeup and Hair by Toni Brides.
I was honored to be part of my friend’s Bo’s big day doing the lovely bridesmaids Makeup and Hair. To match their beautiful baby blue bridesmaids dresses, we went for a very natural makeup with false eyelashes and very natural toned brown, peach, vanilla color. For hairstyle, we chose a French braided front and pinned that to the curled ponytail. Everyone loved how they looked! The day started at 3:30 am but it was such a pleasure be surrounded by these great people and doing what I love <3
Toni Brides Wedding 07/26/2014. So happy for the couple finally tied the knot!!
This is the getting ready photo for beautiful Ann. She’s wearing #ToniBrides#handmade#haircomb with her low up-do. So gorgeous!!! It felt amazing to put on my handmade wedding hair comb on her. :))
For her makeup, I used Temptu airbrush makeup, we went for a soft smoky eye to enhance her best feature. For her hair, I did a natural low updo with textured hair and lose curls.
She was happy with the looks and texted me this morning saying ‘Thank you very much for the hair and makeup. Got compliments from everyone. If you are ever around here let me know, we can have lunch or something!’..How sweet..
Did I mention that she’s my favorite client? xo Pleasure to work on you for your big day Ann!
Hope everyone is having a lovely Wednesday! Toni Brides is getting ready for a busy weekend with two weddings and a pre-wedding trial!! How exciting!!!
Now first step is getting my makeup brushes ready. They are now air-drying on a clean towel after a deep cleansing 😉 I usually deep clean my brushes once or twice a month with very gentle baby shampoo. The benefit of deep cleaning your brushes is like exfoliating your skin! First of all, deep cleaning helps to get all the colors and product out of brushes so they can grab product better when used. Secondly, it keeps the brush bristles soft for a better and smoother makeup application. Last but not least, it extends the brush life longer!
Had a great wedding yesterday! I have to say, this bride’s mom from Kazakhstan changed my view about using certain colors on older people…She wasn’t scared of color, she know exactly what she wants and went for it! Go mom!!! You just totally inspired me!
