I am always happy to receive wedding requests from people I know. So when Jordan emailed almost a year before her wedding (talk about on top of things!) about hiring me to do her makeup, I was excited to connect and help her with her planning. What I really loved about having Jordan as my client was her calm demeanor and SO the fact that she is so sweet. Although I never mind a challenge (I am super competitive), my job is much easier when my client is down to earth, prepared and open to suggestions.
Jordan's look was one of my favorites this year so far...She wanted a little drama on the eyes and glowing skin. This is my favorite bridal look on most women, as I think it's the most flattering in pictures.
We decided on airbrush makeup for Jordan because of its weightless feel. She mentioned not wanting to feel like she had makeup on, so I knew airbrush was the answer. Her foundation, contour and blush were all airbrushed (Temptu Pro). For her highlight, I layered a Temptu Highlighter and Becca's Champagne Pop. I swear Becca's highlighters work on everyone! They are beautiful! For her eyes I went with golden and bronze tones to bring out her baby blues. Again to make the eyes pop, I worked in layers. I mixed Laura Mercier's Caviar Stick in Sandglow, with several shades from Anastasia Beverly Hills Makeup by Mario Master Palette. For my brides who want their eyes to pop, I always opt for Ardell Demi Whispies. They are my favorite lashes. For lips I went with Mac Brave and Creme Cup mixed together ( go to for Brides). For her lovely bridesmaids that I had the pleasure of working with, I was able to experiment with various looks as well. They were a great group of ladies and we shared lots of laughs!
Jordan and Chad had the perfect sunny Spring day for their wedding at the Watershed Pavilion. Her romantic updo was done by Heather from Heirloom Salon, in Pineville, NC. The beautiful pictures below were taken by Deeana Beckley of Deeana Kourtney Photography. She is extremely talented behind the camera. Follow her on Instagram! She seriously takes such gorgeous pictures!
What I loved most about Jordan and Chad's day is the happiness and love that was surrounding them from start to finish. You could feel the happiness in the air and the love in your heart. Congrats to this beautiful couple :)
