A month or so ago, I did the wedding makeup for a client of mine named Grace. I was in charge of her, as well as two mothers, a grandmother, a flower girl and five bridesmaids. Fortunately I had an assistant! We did the makeup at the hair salon that the bridal party was getting their hair done at. For weddings, you have to be prepared to work quickly and anticipate everything. The bridal party ended up arriving later than scheduled and when they arrived, they still needed to eat breakfast. Let's just say that it was a whirlwind after that. Situations like this are really good though because you learn to do makeup really quick.
For Grace, she wanted something with a little more color. It was going to be an evening, fall wedding, so I ended up using the Spiced Chocolate quad for her eyes. On her lips we used Half Red lip pencil along with Viva Glam V lipstick. The one thing that Grace really wanted, was a thicker line of liner along the bottom. We compromised and chose a brown color that would be suitable for the afternoon into evening transition of the wedding. The bride and bridesmaids all had eyelash extensions put in that morning so it made my job one step easier.
For the bridesmiads and mothers, we went really natural...focusing on clear, glowing skin and neutrals on the eyes with pink on the lips and cheeks.

I did a little bit of extra contouring so that her face wouldn't get washed out in black and white photography.

Bride and bridesmaids...I love the color of the bridesmaids' dresses!
