Ever wondered how to incorporate some pizazz into your wedding look?
Last year I had the opportunity to take an Eastern Bridal Workshop at promakeupart.com with the school’s founder Robert Closs. The idea was to learn a different approach to traditional Western Bridal makeup, which is normally softer and more monochromatic (think pinks and neutrals).
In this approach, colour is much more widely expected and appreciated. I had the chance to create a look based inspired by the pashmina that was hanging in my closet at home. I had some cool golden jewellery that fit the look, and we topped it off with a bindi for more authenticity.
Please note, the use of bindi was not meant to insult or offend the culture that wears them.
Thank you to my beautiful friend Becky for being my model!
I can’t wait for the chance to create some Eastern Bridal looks for clients in the future.
I’ve been a bit busy at work lately so just a short little post for now, including one accessory that I think girls can’t get enough of!
Aren’t these beauties lovely? I always like an embellished shoe, even more so because it allows the wearer to feel elegant, even when wearing a simpler outfit.
They are called the Nina ‘Neva’ Pump and they come in black, grape satin (purple), tea rose (blush pink), ivory, and steel satin (pictured). The satin ‘half D’Orsay’ pump (when one side of the shoe dips down showing the side sole of your foot) has a flourish on the non-D’Orsay side that’s reminding me of a bunch of grapes! Additionally, the shoes also feature delicate bead detail around that flourish that makes them that little bit more special.
Wouldn’t they make a great addition to a wedding party? I can picture bridesmaids rocking the same shoe with their dress, especially since it’s at an affordable CDN $103.07 (I don’t know what’s with the random 7 cents).
