So lucky to say that 2015 has been a fun fill year with weddings each weekend along with photoshoots and just any reason for one to get all dolled up! Aubre from Aubre's accessories contacted me to do a style shoot and how can I say no, it's always so much fun and I love seeing the photos! I got the chance to team up with an amazing group of talents for this bridal photoshoot and wanted to share these looks with you.

Elegant, simple, and fresh.
Old Hollywood, glamourous, and vintage.
Meet Stephanie! A kind hearted and beautiful bride that I met from doing makeup and hair for two previous weddings she was in. It is now Stephanie's turn to walk down the aisle! This bride knew exactly what look she wanted and I was more than honor to have the chance to doll her up on her wedding day and bridal portraits. She had my services booked over a year in advance.
Here are some pictures getting Stephanie ready and wedding day pictures.

What a beauty! Don't you agree?
Here you can see the bridal makeup look we created for Stephanie: grey smokey eyes, contoured cheeks, and soft pink lips.
Such a beautiful moment captures, I just had to share!
These two bridesmaids may look similar if you browse through my blogs! They are Stephanie's besties and are my previous brides as well. Now the three of them are enjoying the wonderful married life!
So what do I do when I'm not busy with wedding makeup? Here is a glimpse of makeup for fun photoshoot, special events, or just because you need to look beautiful!
Before & after for Debbie.
I had so much fun doing Debbie's makeup for a photoshoot. Just look at that gorgeous skin, eyes and luscious lips! Debbie is a natural beauty and normally wear minimal makeup. I went to her house to doll her up with soft glam eyes and popping magenta lips. Debbie wasn't too sure about the lips since it was such a pop of color but I told her that it will look gorgeous in the photos. After the photoshoot Debbie texted me saying she absolutely loved everything! Here is a photo from the photoshoot Debbie sent me.

I had the pleasure to do makeup for Setarra's photoshoot with www.Raeimages.com The photoshoot was for the launch of a juicing business Setarra started this year.
Here is the photo from the shoot! Setarra looks like a barbie doll to me. Support your local business by going to www.happyapplejuicery.com for some yummy healthy juices or detoxing juices! Delivery or pick up available!
I will start posting unedited before and after pictures of my real brides to show how beautiful makeup can enhance your features and not having it over done. This is my absolutely darling and beautiful Southeast asian bride on her wedding day. Photos are taken on my iPhone! I created this beautiful flawless look with airbrush foundation and blush. Highlighting and contouring to enhance the cheekbones is a MUST! Gold and bronze eyes with a winged cat liner for her beautiful almond shape eyes. Another must is filling in the brows where it helps frames the face yet looking very natural and not "drawn in". I must say this is one of my signature bridal looks, a natural glam yet glowing and radiant! xoxo-Jenny
