About a year ago we were approached by one of our favorite photographers, JP Elario about teaming up with Angela’s Bridal and a group of fabulous models for a bridal photo shoot. The results were amazing and it turned into a quarterly event.
This quarter was the biggest shoot to date with 14 models to style but we were up for the task! We were looking to achieve a more realistic feel. Something a bride would actually wear on her wedding day. So updos were on the menu. The entire Make Me Fabulous team arrived at Angela’s Bridal hours before to start prepping the models the same way we would for a real wedding. What really sets us apart is our amazing knowledge of our products. We know what works, what holds and what different hair types require. Our favorite products for prepping the hair are bumble and bumble holding spray, bumble and bumble does it all spray adding a little bumble and bumble grooming cream for hydration. The hair turns out full and soft while maintaining the curl we need to achieve each style. To add volume at the root nothing compares to OSIS+ Glamour Queen. This is one of the newest products from Schwarzkopf and we’re in LOVE with it. You won’t believe how high you can get the hair after using it! Finish the entire look with the OSIS+ Session Label Strong Hold hairspray and the girls were everything proof.
Now onto their absolutely flawless makeup! We use only the best professional lines available. Each face is primed. One of our favorite primers is Stila All Day Prime & Anti-Shine Balm. This multi-tasking, secret weapon provides invisible coverage for a flawless complexion. Use under makeup as a primer to create an impeccable canvas for flawless makeup application, use over makeup to set and extend wear, or use in place of a pressed powder for touchups throughout the day. Foundation is also key for a flawless look. A lot of our makeup artists like the Stila Stay All Day Foundation. It even comes with matching concealer and an application brush! Lips tie it all together. We love the bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipsticks. These creamy, super-saturated, ultra-pigmented color glide on like butter for full coverage in a rich satin finish. We finish e ach face with a finishing powder like the bareMinerals Mineral Veil to give each face a perfect airbrushed look.
These photo shoots give us a much needed creative outlet and we love every single second of it. Two of our stylists were even chosen to model! Fun!! Here is a link to the entire blog post by JP http://elariophotography.com/angelas-bridal-summer-shoot/
