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.

Destination Wedding Makeup: Have Luminous Lashes on W-Day

written by Connecticut / New York Celebrity Makeup Artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis

A fun and glamxurious way to bring out the color in your eyes on your wedding day is with L’OREAL Double Extend Illuminator Mascara. This is a nice treat for a day or destination bride who prefers to wear very minimum makeup, leaving her eyes to be the main focus.

There are two very easy steps that any bride can accomplish. First, extend and thicken your lashes with the mascara applicator brush. The black mascara is infused with a hint of color that adds volume and length to your lashes. Two, illuminate your lashes with the sphere tip brush by applying the top base coat that has the lighted reflecting pearls to highlight your eye color. Feel flirty and bat those illuminated lashes knowing everyone will see you as you walk down the aisle.

New York Bride with a touch of the Indian Culture

You may remember me mentioning meeting with my bride one morning. At her bridal consultation she brought with her a beautiful red & gold headpiece that was going to be the inspiration for the makeup. Quyn wanted to have a little of the Indian culture in her wedding so the headpiece in her sari would be a perfect touch. Since her bridal consultation Quyn visited her favorite bridal jewelry store showroom in New York, Tejani and fell in love with a beautiful necklace. So I tweaked the makeup just a little still keeping her makeup soft and elegant. I decided to play with the silver in her sari using OCC pigment called Iced. I then smoked her eyes out just a little using a taupe eyeshadow. I lined her eyes with L’OREAL HIP Cream Eyeliner in brown and added brown individual lashes from Ardell. On Quyn lips I used SMASHBOX lip enhancing full color in Aura. = “UA-3446372-1”; urchinTracker();
