Whenever I'm talking about my wedding w/ Brittany this past Summer to friends or clients I always refer to her as my "Barbie Bride". I, in no way mean this as a derogatory term. I LOVED Barbie growing up and I still think Barbie is awesome. Basically I just think Brittany looked so blonde, gorgeous and glamorous on her wedding that it was like Barbie getting married! In fact I basically made her swear on her life that she would send me pictures after the wedding lol! I just thought it would be such a shame if I didn't have a bride like her on my site!
One of the things I really loved about Brittany and the look we created for her wedding day is that she actually let me put makeup on her! She wasn't afraid to be a little glamorous and smokey eyed. That doesn't mean it was super heavy but it was definitely a level up from what a lot of my brides let me do. The funny thing is I KNOW future brides are going to be telling me they want to look like her but they won't want the style of makeup she has one b/c they will think it's "too much". Truth is when you look at her pictures it doesn't look "too much" at all. In fact, it reads pretty natural w/ glowing skin and a soft lip but the eye was a decent level Brown/Black/Gold smokey eye plus there was full black liner all around the eye. I will totally admit though not every bride can pull off this look - for some it would be too much. It all depends on your features, skin tone and comfort level of course.
I think one of the most exciting things about the wedding for me was the fact that Brittany's mom was a glamour girl just like Brittany. I could definitely see where Brittany got her looks from. I only wish I had pictures of her mom too b/c I don't think I've had a mom that let me do such a dramatic look on them before...and the thing is she totally pulled it off! She looked great and I loved the full dramatic lashes on her!
