Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying this holiday. So what have I done so far today? Clean house, play with doggies and calming my doggies down because 2 of them are terrified of fireworks. Poor babies. But other than that I'm doing absolutely nothing. Nothing really exciting happens in my life lol. Seriously. BUT.......
Last night I did a trial run on my cousin good friend. She's getting married in August and my cousin briefly mentioned that I do makeup. So she asked me if I could do a trial run on her. So I've been doing research on makeup looks on tan skin and I found these inspiring photos. I've been asked to do makeups for weddings before but I've turned down the jobs because I don't want my first job to be on a wedding. The next reasons are the brides that did ask me have symptoms of a bridezilla. So I didn't want my ass chewed up on my first gig. I've done people's makeup before for like prom and import shows lol and working with colors are easy for me. Doing a 'natural' look or a 'enhanced' version of oneself is the hardest look to do. So what made me take this job? This bride I've known since I was in elementary. She's one of the most nicest and positive person I know. I've never seen her mad. So I guess she's the best first client to have right!?!
I think that corals/peach/pinks are great for brides but not for women of color. It does not show up so browns/golds are next. So I did two different eye looks on her and she and I picked the same look. I tried a shimmery champagne look on one side and on the other side it's a orange/pink/bronze look. She picked a shimmery champagne look.
Let me know if there's any other great color combinations for tan skinned brides!
