Wedding: Timeless Classic Outdoor Makeup Look At Trump Country Club

On Saturday I went to Bedminster, NJ to do makeup for a New York model at the beautiful property at Trump National Golf Club. It was a 2 hour drive from Connecticut but with my no sense of directions it took me an extra 45 mins. I got lost a few times, pulled up to the wrong house…don’t ask, and I had to battle with a deer on the road, lol. So my start was a little exciting.

Because both Vanessa & I had really busy schedule we didn’t get a chance to do a bridal consultation. Vanessa was pleased with my work from what she saw as well Shida, one of her bridesmaid speaking highly of me. We did talk over the phone, Vanessa shared with me what she wanted to look like. After finally meeting her I knew that I didn’t want her to look trendy but more pretty. Because she’s a model she have worn so many runway makeup looks so I decided to play with soft champagne, browns, and pinks. Keeping her makeup look timeless & classic. Of course I used lots of waterproof makeup & stay all day products since she was having the ceremony outdoor. 

What a nice spread for the wedding party

Destination Wedding At The Ritz Carlton New Orleans

Everybody always forget the groom on the wedding day, put I  knew my groom would need a  little help, he is in New Orleans. If he partied like I think he did the night before then L’OREAL Paris Men Expert Eye Roller would be needed.

Now that makeup has been airbrushed on with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics the model is waiting for hair. As she’s wait patiently for hair I’m cleaning my tools so I can be ready for makeup look 2. The first look is all about the bright yummy pink lips from OCC. It’s a new lip tar call Yaoi, an obnoxious true fuchsia metallic shade. On her eyes, I sprayed her with OCC loose colour pigment in Clove, a champagne shimmer. The model was channeling the iconic and fabulous music artist Jody Watley from the 80’s with her beautiful head of natural hair. So I gave the model a very strong dark brows that Jody use to rock back in the days.  I was out of my favorite Urban Decay lashes in Black Velvet so I used the Baby Doll strip lashes on her. The rest of her face is all about strong highlighting & contouring. Once hair is done, I’ll probably tweak her makeup a little more. For now it’s all about GLAMXURIOUS!!!!

New York Bridal Beauty With L’OREAL Paris USA

I started my day earlier in Chelsea doing makeup at designer Cesar Galindo show for New York Fashion Week. I end my day on the Upper East Side doing bridal makeup at L’OREAL Paris Cathedral with Tiffany who is also a L’OREAL Paris Makeup Artist. The event was from 5-8pm and the register brides received a makeup consultant, complimentary bridal makeup application, and a goody bag from L’OREAL Paris. It’s always a treat when brides from Connecticut attend my events in New York. 
For a softer eye I lined her eyes with L’OREAL Paris Infallible 24hr Eye Shadow In  Eternal Black. 
The L’OREAL Paris products I used to create the look. The only thing missing is the L’OREAL Paris Voluminous Power Volume 24hr mascara that the bride get to keep.
