Real Brides - Sarah

June 22nd, 2009 @ 2:07 pm by Laura Nadeau @ Lo and Co

When I meet with a bride for the trial run, I take photos, a video and keep detailed notes so I can remember as much as possible about her look and personality. It is amazing how a few simple words can bring a client’s unique personality back to me regardless of the time passed. The words on my notes for Sarah read "really nice person". This is a commonly used phrase, but when I write it as a note to myself - I know exactly how special that phrase is. I have a rare job that requires me to stare at a face and eyes, to focus on a person from inches away with the intent of understanding them and trying to enhance their beauty. In my day-to-day life, I skim over things and multi-task, but when I am applying makeup on a face I am truly in the moment and that enables me to see people in a more intimate way. It is difficult to hide from your makeup artist! ;)

Jacob Pritchard’s photography captured Sarah’s beauty as well as her calm and kind persona. I enhanced Sarah’s eyes by using an opal color shadow all over the lid and using rosy browns along the lash line and crease. I topped the soft eye with a very tight black gel liner to "pop" her eyes in photos. I used my new favorite lip combo - Bobbi Brown’s Blue Raspberry Creamy Lip Color topped with Pink Brightening Gloss.

I love the idea of taking a double-decker bus with your guests to the ceremony. What a fun way to travel and see the city. Tara of Exquisite Affairs , was the fantastic day-of coordinator. The couple wed at Central Park’s Conservatory Garden with the reception taking place at Astra .

Laura, I just love your work! And your product tips are incredibly helpful. I’m a gal who loves playing with make-up, but there’s so much out there to choose from!

Question: Have you ever heard of or tried the HD Foundation? I think it’s from a line called Make Up For Ever. I’ve read a little about it online, and talked with the sales gal at Sephora (man, I can get in such trouble in that store! totally fun)… but it would be great to get a Pro’s opinion. Thanks! And keep the posts coming. :)

@NC Girl: HD makeup is just a new branding technique - just like the mineral powder makeup craze. Unless you are planning on being on HD TV - you have no need to worry about this. Basically, everyone of TV has to lighten up their heavy makeup because it can be seen on HD. Stick to a foundation that has the coverage and texture that you like and one that matches your skin. xolo
