Bridal makeup is a special moment, a ritual that is part of the transformation of a woman’s day during which she will say yes, yes to love, yes to a new chapter of her life. If you don’t know, I offer different types of beauty coaching services, some of which are targeted for the bride and groom.
To realize these services, I am in partnership with an event planner in the Paris region. This is Ally Pop Event which I already mentioned on the blog. Alicia is a bubbly, passionate and resourceful person to create unique moments for her clients. I am delighted to be able to contribute to the happiness of the people who pass through it.
Bridal makeup: my philosophy
Why did I want to get into the wedding world? This was initiated by an email from a reader who asked me for advice to make her bridal makeup. A whole reflection was built from where I found that many women had the feeling of not recognizing themselves in their wedding photos, that the makeup did not match their expectations…I wanted to offer an alternative to what is on the market. For me, makeup must be a co-construction between the bride and myself. The most important thing is that this woman can feel like being the most beautiful version of herself while retaining its authenticity with a makeup that sublimates it.
I wish to put at the service my expertise and my passion so that this moment of beauty is a wonderful memory in this day already so rich.
Bridal makeup: when East meets West
At the end of September 2017, I made the makeup of T. It was a challenge because it was necessary to create a make-up that could go with a traditional Asian dress and the famous white dress.
To get there, I started with the idea of keeping the same makeup for both dresses and changing the color of the lipstick. For the complexion, it is important for me that the skin looks like skin. It is for this reason that I always go on a natural and fresh effect. For the eyes, the makeup combines gold, brown and a touch of plum for a sophisticated look. The lips are dressed in red for the traditional Asian dress and a rosewood/nude shade for the white dress.
