Sunset Winter Bridal Portraits

For this look featured on Glamour and Grace I chose to keep the look minimal but well defined. Bridget had such beautiful features that I simply wanted to emphasize them with shades of rich chocolate brown and highlight them with a soft rose gold highlighter. These colors lent themselves to the entire theme as the setting sun brought out the burgundy highlights in Bridget's hair and washed the landscape in a veil of gold . There was a warmth to the entire look that is so reminiscent of a fire on a winter day, this was reflected back in the gentle warmth of Bridget's brown eyes.

Winter is such a wonderful time to work with berry tones, deep browns, golden highlights, shimmering creams, and rich caramel colors. The original blog post and full set of vendors involved can be found at Glamour and Grace. Thank you Lindsey Zovko as always for the lovely photos! 


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.
