This is Amy, a previous bridal client of mine. I loved Amy’s “California girl” look, and asked her to come in for a photo shoot with me and Photographer Joe Henson sometime after her wedding, which she kindly did last month!
I love that Carrie Underwood hair and make-up look, so decided to try to capture that with Amy
For more fullness and glamor, I used clip-in extensions. Using a large barrel curling iron, I gave her big, bouncy curls.
A fair amount of back-combing goes into this style also, which keeps the style in place and adds volume.
I gave Amy a sunkissed look using Kett airbrush make-up. The sexy smokey eyes are achieved by combining a well blended warm bronze tone, as well as the black liner. I like to use either Bobby Brown gel liner, or MAC paint pots, which are both blendable, but will not budge!
For the lips, I didn’t want to go completely neutral, which can sometimes look a bit dead, especially in photos. Instead, I opted for MACS Boldly Bare lip pencil, and Bobby Browns Uber pink, topped with a clear lip gloss, which gives the lips a nice healthy look.
