The Gilroy Hilton Garden Inn, Early Afternoon.

A Fun-Filled Friday. I could not have asked to work with a more excited bride. Lisa sent me over these wonderful photos and was kind enough to allow me to post her before and afters (thanks Lisa!). On Lisa (all Bobbi Brown, as Lisa is a HUGE fan):
- Navajo Cream Shadow as an all over base (use fingers to spread evenly)
- White Eyeshadow on brow bone (use Eye Shader brush for highlight)
- Heather and Fawn Eyeshadow (use Eye Sweep brush to blend)
- Black Gel Eyeliner (use Ultra Fine Liner brush)
- Ardell lashes #128 (from your favorite drug store!) and Shu Uemura lash glue
- Grey Eyeshadow as a brow powder (Eyebrow brush)
- Bisque Corrector
- Natural Concealer
- Foundation Stick in Natural #4 (apply with fingers and blend with a clean foundation brush)
- Sunny Beige Loose Powder
- Nectar Blush
- Rose Brown Creamy Lip Color
- Rose Lip Pencil
- Buff Lip Gloss

She was so calm and collected through the process, though she told me she knew she would be emotional during the ceremony. Naturally, I gave her some extra powder under the eyes to prevent smudging. Surrounded by warm friends and family, Lisa and her ladies snacked on sandwiches and sang some Katy Perry tunes. Below is a photo of Lisa with her friend Sandra (with the pretty dangling earrings) who is a makeup pro herself. Look at that perfectly applied blush and flattering lipstick shade! Cousin Shannon is on Lisa's left and we had fun designing her smokey eyed look together. Here's a shot of Lisa in full bridal garb with her super sweet mom, Joyce. Joyce has me considering offering personal tutorials about how to do every day makeup with what you have at home. I'm seriously thinking about it! From Lisa: "Thanks again for your wonderful work on Friday! I LOVED my makeup and got a ton of compliments!! Everyone also loved my mom's make-up and I appreciate your eye for not going overboard!! Thank you so much for helping make me a beautiful bride for my wedding!"

Thanks Lisa for the great photos and even greater compliments. I was happy to be a part of your day! I hope you had a wonderful wedding surrounded by all the people who love you, including your new hubby! Can't wait to see more photos. Congratulations!
