this is the genuinely sweet bride that put her complete trust in me for her makeup. she normally wears no makeup at all and was so open to trying whatever i had to suggest. originally, she had sent to me an image of korean inspired glowing skin makeup, but for her engagement shoot, since she was wearing a black textured dress and loves to wear her light grey colour contacts, i suggested a more smoky look to better contour her colour contacts. she was so open to trying the makeup. and for the day of her wedding, we went for the more natural look, focusing on highlights, contouring and glowing skin.
in the evening, we darkened the makeup every so slightly to accommodate for the dimmer lighting:
congratulations to this lovely bride! it was such a pleasure getting to know her!
