This bride and bridal party was amazing! Courtney, the bride, was going for a glamorous vintage look. I did soft bronze cheeks, and drew out her eyes with a thick top line. This complimented her thick, full, long lashes and really gave her a classic chic look. I went for the nude lip to keep the attention on her eyes, but still enhance her natural lip. I had a blast being apart of her special day!

Here is a word from the bride Courtney…

“So thankful for Emily and her AWESOME skills! My wedding day makeup was FLAWLESS thanks to her! She made it easy for me and came to my house for the trial. I showed her a picture of the type of makeup that I was looking to have and honestly my expectations weren’t very high because the picture I gave her was of a supermodel! She blew me away!

The airbrush makeup made my acne prone skin flawless and my makeup style was exactly what I wanted! Perfect eyes, lips, EVERYTHING! Every girl should feel beautiful on her wedding day and Emily helped to ensure that my wedding was perfect! She showed up on time, was professional and kind and even helped to accommodate to my flower girls. They HAD to have blush and lipstick even though Emily was crazy busy doing makeup for 7 ladies! If anyone is unsure whether or not to go with Emily, take a look at my wedding pictures and you’ll be sold…Thanks a million times Em!”
