Bold and Beautiful – A series of color for your wedding day and showcasing your individuality.

13 Feb

This past season we saw more and more brides breaking away from the traditional and typical bridal looks and really sporting their own individuality with their Make-up and Hair looks for their big day.

As we progress into the 2012 year, we are seeing no signs of this slowing down. We are now seeing transitioning to the likes of light color pops in looks for Make-up, and away from the highly over done looks of the “Kim K” styles and the “Eva Longoria” Hair style and others.

No longer about tattoo covers, but instead owning the work client’s have had done and sporting it proud with services we offer such as Tattoo Detailing; Color Enhancement services and glamorization, so you can wear them with pride!

We are seeing  wedding gowns from the new Vera Wang collection and multiple other designers that are stepping away from traditional styling and introducing more color from detail accents, to gowns in colors such as Black, dusty rose tones and peaches, pale blues, mint greens and more. Accents such as fabric flowers for softer more vintage feels too… We’ll post a few of our favorites from this season below.

With the successes of our last year’s Signature Faces collections line, this year we wanted to showcase the other side of what we’ve been seeing and doing all year… Away from the traditional looks with some of our more popular requested looks.

Part 1 is listed below from our 2 part series on being Bold and Beautiful for your big day and showing that color doesn’t have to be scary 😉

So with that in mind we are happy to introduce to you the first portion of our Color Bridal Series Below:

Pink | Purples | Wines | Cranberries

This season we have seen a huge rise in requests for color combos and light color introductions,  such as; Pinks, Purples, Eggplant, Wine tones and Cranberry colors.  An additional pop of color to more basic styles such as the brown smokey eye, giving a more eye-catching affect. Your level of boldness knows no limit. Here our client sports our very popular Bold Pink and Purple Smokey eye combination.

Reds tones  and Red Lip Combo’s

A step up from the Wines and Purples. A bolder approach should you want, or just as a slight hint of color with a smokey eye look. Popular color choices for this combination include a mix of deep warm gold’s paired with darker red tones and Smokey Blacks for the eyes.  A favorite amongst many of our South Asian wedding clients.

Alternative options we see are a more muted version of the eyes, in Deep chocolate tones and taupe’s, paired with a fierce red statement lip! Red lips have been making a Bridal comeback over this past season and we hope to see it stay. A nice change up from the muted nudes and pink tones that often wash out many clients in photos!!

Vintage glam

Still going strong, we featured this in our last collection, but with the amount of requests we still see for it, we felt it deserved another spot! Minimal in approach for those that are a bit more “au natural” with emphasis  on the eyes through a clean short winged liner, sexy lashes and a deeper blush tones. Lips we see include a wide range from soft pinks and coral tones, all the way back through to the deep reds and wine tones which old Hollywood glam looks were founded on.

Golden Girl

Golds are making a come-back as well! Yay!

A nice alternative from the more washed out taupe’s and lighter tones we saw allot of a few seasons back. Gold tones add a bit more glam to the eye and warms up the face. Paired with pops of colors like deep greens, this was a very popular choice through our fall brides. Not quite bold enough for color? Still a wonderful alternative base choice for the standard neutral toned Smokey eye.

The Super Smoke

We didn’t forget out you lovely ladies that like to really kick it up a notch for the evening looks. This style,  is a VERY popular choice for our “Reception return” services we offer our brides… Taking you from soft and daytime from your ceremony and picture time, to evening glam –  Smoke out the eyes, pull the hair up and dance the night away!
