The Richard Nixon Library was the perfect venue for classy couple Angelina & Matt.  We were so honored to be apart of their Special Day, and loved everything about her stunning Bridal look!

Angelina’s unique hairstyle combined the chicness and volume of an updo as well as the soft romantic touch of flowing curls.   DV Laura C. achieved this look by first setting Angelina’s gorgeous hair with a 1 1/2″ iron, teasing the crown of the head for added volume.  She then divided up the top of her hair into piecy parted sections, leaving a few pieces out to soften the frame of her face.  She then gathered and secured the hair at the crown, mid-section, and nape of the neck, leaving out her cascading curls.

 

The Bride decide on a soft, natural makeup look.  DV Laura C., used a combination of tinted concealer, mineral makeup, and lightly apply temptu airbrush makeup to give her a fresh face look.  The eye shadow Laura C. used were in shades of vanilla, champagne, and mocha for just a slight natural smokey look in the corner of Angelina’s eyes.  Just a light touch of black eyeliner on the upper and lower eyes, paired with a deep pink lipstick gave Angelina the perfect pop to finish off her look.

Jerine&Roy-JodeeDebesPhotography-6Jerine&Roy-JodeeDebesPhotography-4Jerine&Roy-JodeeDebesPhotography-5

Stunning Bride, Jerine, chose a beautiful, feminine Bridal Look for her Santa Monica Wedding.  DV Dana gave Jerine a defined, yet natural makeup look by using black liner on the top lid, and a touch of lighter smokey liner on the bottom lid.  For eye shadow she used copper and gold tones with just a touch of shimmer to add a hint of Bridal Glam.  She then used a light pink lipstick for a soft feminine lip.

DV Dana created a beautiful sideswept updo for Jerine’s Bridal hairstyle.  She first set the hair with a 1 inch hot iron and created volume by slightly teasing the crown of the head.  She carefully sectioned the hair, placing the curls together to create a soft romantic look.  Jerine’s gorgeous hairstyle was toped off by a beautiful jeweled feather hair accessory to add a touch of elegance and sparkle.

To achieve  Kristin’s beachy curls, DV Georgia set her hair with a medium sized curling iron, pulled them out, then rewrapped the curls, creating a finger-wave look.  Softly running a brush over the finished curls gave her curls a soft, glamourous touch.

For Kristin’s gorgeous green eyes, Georgia mixed neutrals and browns from Urban Decay’s Naked palettes, deepening the eyes with “kitten” shadow by Stella on the top lid.  Georgia softly defined Kristin’s eyes by applying a line black winged liner to her top lid and used soft black liner on the bottom.  To give Kristin a fresh fresh, Georgia lightly applied one coat of Temptu airbrush foundation in order to give Kristin a natural, yet finished look.  She then applied bronzer with a touch of peachy pink shimmer blush to create a light dewey look.  Then, to finish off her look, Georgia applied Shopolic & Port lip color for a beautiful pink tone.

Christina & Drew’s Trump National Golf Club Wedding with DNT Elite Events and Lin & Jirsa Photography

The most common request we receive from Brides before the Hair & Makeup Preview, is that they want to look and feel like themselves on their Special Day, only a with touch of glam.  Christina is the perfect example of how to pull off the perfect Bridal Look, without looking “too done up.”  She chose to go with a natural makeup look paired with a soft, curled up-do.  

DV Laura used small barrel curls to texturize the font and sides of Christina’s hair, and weaved them up from the back sides and front to create fullness and volume.  She slightly teased the top of the hair to add height, which gave Christina a nice, full updo.

DV Laura then gave Christina a neutral eye by using light gold, rust and rose gold shadow on the lid, adding a touch of light shimmer to the corners of each eye.  She then used Blackcat Eyeliner for the top lid, and black powder to darken Christina’s waterline.   To highlight her cheeks, Laura used Sephora’s Pink Trio Blush to create a natural “Blushing Bride” look.  Laura used mocha long wear lipliner with a peach toned lipgloss for a light, natural lip color.

DV Dana decided to let the Bride & her gorgeous Bridal attire do the talking by leaning towards soft natural makeup for her Bridal look.  Dana highlighted Reema’s eyes by using  a combination of eyeshadows with a champagne, smokey gold/bronze base and then created depth by blending in burgundy tones.  She finished off  the eye with a touch of black eye liner (top and bottom) and carefully placing individual lashes on for a nice full, natural lash look.

Reema dawned two beautiful hair styles on her Special Day.  First, Dana curled her locks with a 1 1/4″  curling iron, set her hair, and allowed it to cool.  This enables the hair to hold, giving her lasting, full curls throughout the entire day.  Dana then swept her curls off to the side, giving her a romantic first look.  After her ceremony Dana pulled her hair down, and repined it into a more relaxed half up/half down look for her Reception.
