Bridal Preview: Ellen

Ellen booked her May wedding with me in January. We had a preview for her hair back then, but she decided to come in for a second one to make a few minor changes to her hair style, and also to have a preview for makeup. Ellen wanted a half up/half down style with no major volume on the top, and looser curls that will fall into waves throughout her wedding day. She wanted a style that was totally off of her face as well, but one that still had detail and wasn’t totally boring. On the wedding day, she will not be wearing a veil, but will be adding a small comb to the style for a little added detail.

Ellen is a natural beauty, and not a heavy wearer of makeup. Because of that, we decided to airbrush her to keep her skin feeling lightweight and looking flawless. We kept her makeup very natural, using neutral colors on the eyes, and a soft pink on her lightly contoured cheeks. For Ellen’s lips, we chose a color that was not totally nude, but gave her lips a natural looking pink hue. We topped her look off with a set of corner lashes, but Ellen decided that she’d rather not have them on the actual wedding day. No biggie, she’s gorgeous anyway, and I can’t wait to see her complete look pulled together on the big day! Check out her before and after photos below. What do you guys think?!
