Get All Dolled Up With Your Maids


Featured yesterday on Vale + Vine was a  "Wedding Prep with a Bride + Her Maids" story that I paired up with Stephanie from Sweetheart Events to bring to life.  Since the wedding day excitement doesn't just start when a bride walks down the aisle, we thought it would be fun to showcase the morning leading up to that moment!  Britney Gill  captured our vision perfectly and even snuck in a few GORGEOUS outside shots to complete the shoot.  Take a look below at some of the extra snaps and the inspiration behind the girls beauty looks.



The Makeup

The "Au Naturel" Maid

Naturally gorgeous I kept Shayla's makeup pretty and polished.  To keep her look dewy, I used cream based products for her cheeks and eyes!  I lined the lips then patted on a gloss to finish.

The "Blushing" Maid

I decided to play up Caitlyn's already bold brows, making this the focus of her look.  I kept the rest of her makeup minimal.  I used a bright pink blush for a pop of colour on the cheeks with a soft pink lipstick.

The "Glamour" Bride

As the "Bride" I wanted to make Gala's look a little more glam!  I played up her eyes with brown and bronze toned shadows for a soft smokey look.  Paired with her already flawless complexion = perfection!
