Amy's Bridal Hair & Makeup

Special thanks to Eldad Efendi Photography for the photos! 


We went for a side bun/curl updo. Amy has beautiful blonde streaks which especially compliments this hairdo. Julian, her hubby described her look as a bombshell "Goddess"! Perfect description!

What I used:
- Tresemme heat protectant spray
- 1 inch enzo milano clipless iron
- setting pins
- L'Oreal Paris Elnett unscented hairspray
- Kenra Platinum hairspray
-bobby pins
- Kenra 20 clear paste

With a one inch curling iron, curl and set with clips. Hairspray all over with a flexible hold hairspray. Allow the curls to cool before removing clips. 

 Once hair is cooled, remove hair clips. Working with the direction of the curl, pin down about 2 inch sections around her hairline. 

Sweet the hair to one side and pin curl section by section. 

Finish off the look with flower accessories behind the ear. 


Smokey purple eye shadow and nude lipstick fit perfectly with Amy's green/hazel eyes! 

What I used:
- Urban Decay primer potion
- MAC parfait amour eyeshadow
- MAC soft brown eyeshadow 
- MAC contrast eyeshadow
- MAC carbon eyeshadow
- SHU UEMURA black gel liner
- Maybelline falsies mascara (waterproof)
-MAC cork eyeshadow for brows

- Estee Lauder daywear+ moisturizer
-Young Blood concealer in medium
- MAC NC35 studio fix powder foundation
- Physicians Formula bronze booster in medium/dark
- MAC warm soul blush
-Model in a Bottle setting spray

- Covergirl Longlast lipstick in 598
