A Midsummer Nights Dream Wedding Inspiration

As August is upon us,  I take a trip down memory lane to A Midsummer Nights Dream Wedding Inspiration. 

To create this look, I paired Andrea's copper-honey hair with a burgundy lip. I chose a bold organic lip color by Ilia Beauty: "Femme Fatale" as I believe it contrasted beautifully against her pale dress. It also served as a focal point against a muted color palette. For her eyes I chose a bronze shade of cream shadow by RMS. Lastly, I chose a matte blush in the shade "Apple Blossom" by Alima Pure to add a subtle depth to her cheek bones. 

Bethany Snyder Photography captured the timeless quality of love in these images. Andrea is wearing Gossamer Vintage and her hair is styled by Topknot Studio. The florals were crafted by Katarzyna Borek. The full inspiration can be found here: A Midsummer Nights Dream Wedding Inspiration.

I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine:
There sleeps Titania sometime of the night,
Lull’d in these flowers with dances and delight
— Shakespeare

Beauty Illuminated

 As an artist I am continually drawing upon the natural world for inspiration. The intricate wings of a dragonfly, the illuminated moon at night, an opalescent shell found on the beach- all have celestial qualities that can be found in every bride. This is why I love as an artist to use natural and organic makeup whenever possible. Beauty is truly found within us as living beings and reflected back to us in nature. Bridal Makeup that correctly draws in the right elements of color and works in synergy with the skin can transform a bride into her most radiant self.
