When I was approached about doing a wedding makeup story for Refinery 29, I couldn’t have been more excited! Their site is one of my go-to’s for the latest and greatest in the fashion and beauty world. We decided the story would feature makeup tips for the DIY bride and yours truly would be the ‘model’! [insert anxiety attack here]. Though I’ve done wedding makeup for more brides than I can count, I am infinitely more comfortable behind the scenes than in front of the…gulp… camera.
I decided to put my nerves aside and embrace the opportunity. And I am so glad I did. The shoot was a blast and provided me with a new perspective on the wedding day beauty experience (not to mention a new respect for models while I desperately tried not to blink as the shutter clicked). I am so happy with the finished story. I should have known I had nothing to worry about in the talented hands of photographer Molly DeCoudreaux and editor Katie Hintz-Zambrano.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed sharing some tips and tricks to help you look radiant and feel confident on your wedding day. Looking forward to many more tutorials to come!
Happy Wedding Season!
