Nigerian Bride Glam Bronzed Wedding Makeup

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

http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.jsHurricane Irene pushed this New York wedding back by one day so the wedding did go on. My Nigerian bride Adeola was in great spirit when I arrived to The Ritz Carlton White Plains. Adeola order a nice breakfast spread for the wedding vendors that was coming to the hotel to get her glam. She was still getting her hair done so I set up my area selecting colors that I wanted to use to acheive the look that I wanted to give her. Adeola only request is that she still wanted to look like herself so I knew that I needed to play up key items to enhance her. I airbrushed Adeola, I contoured, I highlighted, I concealed, I bronzed, and I lashed my glamxurious bride.

Enjoy the pictures below:

Glam Indian Bridal Photo Shoot in New York

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 Photographer Parris Whittingham Hairstylist; Melissa Paldino with Sexy Hair Corp and Celebrity Stylist: Niki Hall who I work with for The NBA All Star Weekend. A long day but a great one.
I’m sure I will be posting more pics soon.
