Soft Bridal Glam for Women of Color

Let's talk about one of my favorite weddings of 2022! Brooke was my sweet May 2022 bride. The day was beautiful. The sun was shining bright, there was not a cloud in sight and it was the perfect spring weather. Not too hot and not too cold.

Brooke’s get ready location took place at The Hamilton Alpharetta, Curio Collection by Hilton. This hotel location is GORGEOUS! Her bridal suite was surrounded by windows that provided great natural lighting all around. A makeup artists’ dream! There was such a great amount of space for both my assistant, myself and the hairstylist to work our magic on Brooke and her bridal party.

The Look

For Brooke’s wedding day glam we were originally going to go with a classic matte eye look with no liner and softly smoked out her bottom lash line. A skin focused look that accentuated Brookes beautiful features with an added nude lip to top it all off. However, on wedding day we added some liner to add a little more definition to the top lid. And, I loved it. It was so perfect for this class bridal look. One of my favorite eyeshadow palettes to use to create many of my eye looks for weddings is the Natasha Denona "Biba" palette. It has just the right amount of warm and neutral shades. The color payoff is intense and there is hardly any fallout. The eye shadows are buttery but are long lasting with formulas that consist of your shimmery eyeshadows to mattes. The color palette is the perfect bridal eyeshadow palette. I have included a link to the palette here. You can see how her look came together from start to finish here. I was so in love with this look. From her makeup to her perfectly coifed hair to her gown and shoes! Simply beautiful

The Bridal Party

First, I want to say that the bridal parties’ dresses were so classy and elegant! I love how Brooke allowed her bridal party to pick their own style of dress but with the same color. The dresses complimented their personalities so well! I really enjoyed meeting them and learning about each of their unique stories, especially how they became friends with the bride. Let's just say Brookes girl tribe is solid! It's such a blessing to have an amazing group of friends who love you, pray with and for you and have your back! Ok, so now on to their actual makeup looks because that’s why we’re here right? Lol.

So, Brooke also thought about her girls and wanted them to look and feel just as beautiful as her, so we went with a complimentary look to the bride. We left off the liner for the bridal party and did a soft eye look with a fluffy lash. The lash is what really sets off the look because the eye look is so simple. I purchase my lashes off Amazon in bulk because I'm typically working with large bridal parties. So, Amazon always comes in handy for me. I also gave a little definition to the brows and finished the look off with a nude lip. This look was so perfect. Check out her girls below! Talk about cohesiveness! I'm a believer in seeing videos of makeup applications. It allows you to actually see how a makeup look comes together, unedited. So, you can also see their glam process from start to finish here. Just look at how beautiful everyone looks! As you can see a time was had!

Beautiful black bride and bridal party

I hope that you all enjoyed this weddings glam and overall bridal looks from the bride to the bridal party. Hopefully you got some inspiration for your wedding day as well. As always its such an honor to serve my brides!
