Bridal Trial - Pretty & Polished

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another post featuring a bridal trial.  Word of mouth is the best form of advertising.  I've really become involved in the Southeast Asian Bridal circuit because when I do one bride, she'll often refer me to her huge network of family and friends. 

Today's bride actually flew in from Connecticut and I only had about an hour to work with her.  I usually prefer a longer trial to try out different looks but we were still able to make it happen.

I requested that the bride bring in a few pictures for inspiration.  All of the makeup was actually pretty natural, especially for a Southeast Asian bride.  She really wanted to look like herself but enhanced.  The look we came up with works more on evening out her skin tone and playing up her features.

It's important to ask your clients what they want but it's also helpful to find out what they don't want.  The client definitely did not want the typical heavy makeup look and this helped us do the trial in under an hour.

Here's What I Used (All MAC unless otherwise specified):

Oil Control Lotion
Nurturing Force Blot Out Offensive
Cinema Secrets Palette #5 to Conceal
Eve Pearl Antishine in Light/Medium
Kett Airbrush Foundation in R3 and R5
Graftobian Powder to Set
True Romantic Beauty Powder Blush
Cheek Bronze MSF
Sculpting & Shaping Powders in Shadester and Soft Focus/Accentuate

Bare Canvas Paint
Woodwinked, Embark, Rice Paper, and Blanc Type Eyeshadows
Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner in Blackest Black
Graphblack Technakohl set with Carbon Eyeshadow
#109 Lashes from Gabriella

Cream O'Spice Cremestick Liner
Bare Slimshine
Live and Dye Lipglass

The bride's wedding will be next month.  I'll make sure and take pictures!
