Blissful Brides Magazine beauty spread, Vintage Allure.

My latest works are featured in Blissful Brides Magazine Issue 19, Jan-Jun 2014. I am especially pleased with the beauty spread as I love Vintage looks (and things) and I am happy to be able to create 3 bridal looks for the beauty spread theme of Vintage Allure.

Especially great for brides who want to try something vintage classy yet contemporary for her evening party.

Lash Play

Hair : Eventhough model has long hair. I wanted her to appear to have hair that stops at the nape.
Giving her hair big waves all around, I pinned in her hair to make it look full and shorter. A white feathery hair piece is perfect to give this an even more vintage effect. A nice birdcage veil is another great choice.

Makeup :
The look is Sensual innocence. We want her to look comfortable in being luscious and sensuous with a touch of innocence. That really makes a woman the most beautiful.
I used lilac and mauve for the eyes to create the very soft smoky effect while tilting the ends of her faux lashes downwards.
Peach colored blush to enhance her glow & a mixture of mauve pink lip colors to complete.

Demure Femininity

Hair : Add a twist to a loose updo, literally. Curling the front of the model's hair to create a huge twirl gives this loose swept updo a less contemporary yet softer look. I decided not to use any hair piece with this style.

Makeup : Peach eyeshadow to brighten the entire eye socket and dark brown for the entire eyelid to define the eyes. Smudging out the brown eyeliner to define the eyes without being too harsh.
Lips were stained with a Sienna color and finished with a touch of lip gloss.

Crimson modern Flapper

This is my Favorite of the 3!

Hair : Taking advantage of the model's long hair, I curled her hair with a big barrel tong taking care not to separate the curls too much. Unlike the more tousled styles I usually do for more contemporary looks and for myself, this style requires the curls to be more 'structured' and uniformed yet I have to make sure it looks soft, shiny and not hairsprayed stiff. The black hairpiece helps to give her that glamorous evening look.

Makeup :  Gold, bronze and charcoal grey eye colors were blended for that mysterious and seductive look. Strong wing tipped eyeliner defines the eyes and gives a slight 1920's flapper look. Fuller lashes creates that fluttery effect.
A mix of sable & caramel blush colors were used to contour her cheeks. I created a beauty mark above her cheek to add a touch of playfulness.
An intense bluish red lip colour completes our modern mix vintage seductress.
