Soft and Pretty

Make up artist Amanda McKnight with Southern Sirens, has given us another beautiful look for brides:

Soft and Pretty

“Soft and Pretty” is the perfect to show off your natural beauty; this look enhances your best features and gives you an extra “pop” to make you a blushing bride for either a day or evening wedding.

Start this look with an eyeshadow in either a pastel or neutral color, you can pair this with a medium brown or gray eyeliner that helps give your ‘baby blues’ definition without being too harsh; smudging the eyeliner right above the lashes also helps to soften the line. Finish your lashes with a black mascara, or if you’re wanting something different, try a dark brown or a navy blue mascara.

For the lips go with a soft color, like a peach, nude, or light pink. You can finish this look with a neutral cream blush to highlight and define your cheekbones. Cream blushes provide a natural look and a nice healthy glow, perfect for a beautiful bride.

Vintage Glam

It is such a thrill to introduce make-up artist Amanda McKnight to all of you; her amazing talents have been featured in many of Live, Laugh, Love’s photo shoots, including the Summer/Fall 2012 cover of Enchanted Brides Magazine. For this post we asked  Amanda to show us one of her favorite looks for Brides:

Vintage Glam 

I start the vintage glam look with a neutral eye shadow base, and a black liquid eye liner in a strong line along the upper lash line. For the eyelashes, I use a lush mascara that can be accented with individual false lashes for an extra “pop“. I like using a bright crimson red for the lips, and offset the cheeks by a soft and natural blush. This is a timeless look, that has never gone out of style.
