@lelanewyork @iamparris @mel_paldino @thisis_NIKI : Last week while at Sundance Film Festival an amazing New York wedding photographer that I had an honor to work with @iamparris was featured on LeLa New York blog. Photographer Parris Whittingham reached out to me to do the makeup for a glam Indian bridal photo shoot. Being that beauty makeup is my signature I was excited and referred him to two more talented ladies; Hair stylist Melissa Paldino and Wardrobe stylist Niki Hall. Below are some of my favorites pictures from the shoot. The church where we shot at The Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine in New York is now where my family and I like to attend. We love to attend The Great Organ: It’s Sunday.

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.
Sneak peek; I’m only able to post pics of the looks that I know didn’t make the cut of this glamxurious Indian Bridal Shoot. We started at The W Hotel to prepare getting Uma & Stephen ready. Uma, the bride was a petite and GORGEOUS woman. She has a face that could wear any type of makeup that I put on her. Both Uma and Stephen took a red eye to New York from LA so we wanted to work fast in get as many looks as we could before they crashed for the day. To our surprise they were definitely troopers. I felt so bad for Uma because both Melissa and I both were pulling at her. So we had to tag team a few times and then I’ll stop let Melissa do some sexy hair then she stopped to let me do some of glam makeup. I really needed time on her eyes because that was my main focus for the shoot.
I had a great time working with this cute couple and the crew was awesome; New York Wedding PhotographerParris WhittinghamHairstylist;Melissa Paldinowith Sexy Hair Corp and Celebrity Stylist:Niki Hallwho I work with for The NBA All Star Weekend. A long day but a great one.
