Wedding Crasher's: Crash With Us!

Wedding Crasher's Richmond 2017 is underway and sadly no, Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson didn't show up but, something even better...a huge talented team of vendors arrived to showcase their top wedding work! I had the pleasure of partnering with Elle Style Studio, (located in Carytown), working our model magic for hair and makeup for the brides. Elle was the exclusive hair and makeup team for the tour. Every year, hundreds of brides-to-be gear up for the Richmond Wedding Crasher's tour, hosted by Kim Moody Design.The brides are wined and dined to share in the ultimate "faux wedding party" and three different locations. They can experience firsthand gowns, DJ's, venues, catering, linens, stationary, and of course makeup!

First stop, our modern elegant ballroom wedding at the Hilton Downtown Richmond. Hair artist and up-do expert, Leslie, and I are glamming up our bride to be. It takes a team, and we created a classic timeless bridal look with modern flare. 

To get this bridal look: Her eyes are sparkling with the Lorac PRO Unzipped Palette. I used Bare Study MAC Paint Pot as a shimmer lid primer, topped with "undiscovered" from unzipped on the lid. As a highlight sweep "undercover" under the brow, and pop rose hue "unconditional" in the crease. To add the depth and dimension add a soft touch of "unbridled" in the outer crease corners.

PROTIP: Use Urban Decay Setting Spray to wet your #266 MAC angled eye liner brush. Dip into your fave eyeshadow (here I used Unbridled) and ta-daa! Your soft powder eyeliner is now waterproof, easier and creamier to apply, and will save you some heartache with zero fallout. 

With soft rose gold, plums, and clean, flawless, airbrushed skin, I topped off the look with individual lashes. "Naked" lipliner from Urban Decay and MAC "Plum Dandy" lipstick finish the mood.
