Made Up On The Go #realweddings: Jessica's Classic Beachy Boho Dream Come True <3

Made Up On The Go #realweddings: Made Up On The Go #realweddings: Okay, so let me just say from start to finish Jess + squad were legit hilarious and amazing! I'm talking epic 90's hits playing at her preview session & the big day and a hilarious sidekick that made me laugh the entire morning of-- Jess you were a blast!

The first Chat..

On my first call with Jessica I instantly felt for her as I do with every other bride I have this convo with. She had an earlier preview appointment with another artist and after the session, didn't feel like herself at all. She said the look was great, just not for her. This is a super common complaint I hear from brides who have had a preview with a different artist.

Because of this, I knew that we would be a perfect match! Why? Because my key ingredient to your bridal beauty vision coming to life is collaboration.

This is a YOU + me thing, I am your beauty guru here to listen, advise, guide you to verbalize your truest vision & then visually bring it to life. Your wedding day is 100% about you & it is soooo so important that you feel that from planning to the aisle!

No worries Jess, I gotchuuuu love!

We met, fell in love, listened to EPIC 90's hits & created her dream vision: to look like the red carpet version herself! Jess is a minimalist, loves just a touch of sparkle, has super thick hair. Her biggest worry is being overdone and her hair not holding the wave since it is super straight. She wanted lashes but nothing that was obnoxious.  My response, "Jess you are speaking my language"!

For Jess's hair, we did a loose, boho wave. I prepped it using my signature technique that can make any thick, fine, super straight or difficult hair, wave perfectly AND stay the entire night. The result: your waves last until the next day creating perfect, "I woke up like this" honeymoon hair!

The Inspa..

To add a unique touch of flair that spoke to Jess's vision, minimalist with a touch of glam, I placed her bridal hair crown underneath a layer of hair so that it added a bit of shimmer in the light. This complimented her gorg Bagdley Mischka #dream heels & sparkly bridal belt perfectly! #customdetails

For makeup, we kept it super simple. I used champagnes & beige on her lid to make her eyes pop just enough and added lashes to help define her eyes since they are hooded. We went with a natural nude lip and kept her skin nice & glowy so it would reflect nicely in the sun during her beach shoot and in the evening through HD camera flash.

The Besties..

Now for the girl gang.. omg they were so super cute! From low key & shy to absolutely vibrant and hilarious-- each soul was a pleasure to work with! Each beauty agreed to have a bit of a braided twist to compliment Jess's boho chic theme. 

I like to call the bridal beauty session the "wedding before the wedding". You create memories that will last a lifetime: inside jokes, new and old bonds & glamming with your favorite people in the entire world! You get to be a celebrity for the day.. to walk YOUR red carpet-- and Jessica, you did this with class! #getitgirl
