In a sea of bridal looks centered on too much perfection and contour, we decided to collaborate with REAL Makeup Artistry and Quirky Creatives to put together some bridal and prenup looks that are more on the fun, fresh, experimental, colorful, and romantic side.
Don't get us wrong. We love gorgeous and glamorous looks. But whether you admit it or not, some brides are so keen to jump into the bandwagon and do some pretentious, glamazonic looks for their prenups and weddings, to the point that this has gone way too mainstream, and everybody looks the same. All for the name of social media ready, picture perfect, wedding posts. And here we are to rebelliously tell you, to never be afraid to experiment with looks that truly fit you.
In this shoot, we paired Zandra Lim's beautiful and bespoke gowns with a pop of color. For example, we combined some of the gowns with engagement and cocktail rings adorned with colored stones and black diamonds, while one look featured a diamond and white gold "dog tag necklace" adorned with sapphire, emerald, and ruby stones. As for makeup looks, makeup artist Rae Salazar played with fun eyeliner techniques. And also used this season's hottest matte liquid lippies which, not only makes for statement pouts, but are uber long wearing to last you all-throughout the day. For instance, we used Kylie Cosmetics' Reign Matte Liquid Lipstick for one of the looks--which is a metallic shade. And who would ever dare to use a metallic shade for the wedding...but wow it really looks amazing! We also used a two-toned lippie combo for the prenup look which features Kylie Cosmetics' Kristen and Dirty Peach Lip Kits used on the upper and lower lips. All of the looks we did were fun and experimental yet they all look clean and fresh at the same time.
Don't take yourself too seriously, rebels. Let loose, and let love.
