Trend Alert

Something that has been emerging over the last couple years is brides changing up their look before the reception-taking their hair down, amping up the makeup, sometimes even changing into a snazzy cocktail or dancing dress. What a fun surprise for your guests when you appear with a full costume change!

Sometimes it is an issue of having a very heavy formal dress that is not suitable for dancing the night away; sometimes a girl just wants to unleash her inner diva. From the makeup artist's standpoint, of course I think it's fabulous. A demure look for church, and a fun smokey eye or bright lip for the party; maybe even feather lashes-?
I have a bride this Saturday who is wearing both a traditional wedding gown and a sari -so her makeup needs are unique. I will be at her beck and call for over eight hours, not only doing a complete makeup change, but touching the bride and her wedding party up so they look flawless all day.
I cannot wait to post those images!

Ali changed this past Saturday from her amazing gown to a hot little cocktail dress made for dancing. She still looked fierce. Can't wait to see images!
