Classic Hair and Makeup: Bridget’s Wedding Look

Bridget looked stunning on her wedding day in Raleigh, North Carolina. Stylist and artist Kerri did an amazing job on her hair and makeup. We love that she paired her beautiful hair and makeup with a pearl necklace and earrings. This is a completely classic bridal look and Bridget looks incredible!

We would love to see this same look dress up a more laid back outfit, or to compliment a dressier one. It can add sophistication and style when dressing for everyday, and it can also be the finishing touch on a more elegant evening look.

TIP: To take this look seamlessly from day to night, add a punch of color to the lips. Try one of these bold colors that Rooney Mara pulls off effortlessly. 
Congratulations Bridget, and thank you for for letting Make Up For Your Day be a part of your big day.

Kett Cosmetics Airbrush Makeup Training at MFD!

A couple Sunday’s ago, the makeup artistry team of Make Up For Your Day gathered in the studio for some Bruegger’s bagels and coffee before kicking off a comprehensive 8-hour airbrush makeup training session. Our team had the amazing opportunity to train with a Kett Cosmetics Representative from Toronto, Canada. If you have never heard of Kett Cosmetics, check out our first post on it here. ( The Magic of Kett Cosmetics ).

With over 9 years in the industry, Joanne Parks demonstrated many useful airbrush techniques for the makeup artistry team such as flawless foundation for all skin tones, flattering blush and contouring for all face shapes, eyeshadow application for all eye types and also tattoo coverage techniques. The team then got to practice under Joanne’s watchful and instructive eye.

We were soaking in all of the knowledge we could, asking a multitude of questions throughout the day and the various demonstrations. We learned that patience and practice is key in perfecting these newly learned techniques – and that the experience and expertise of this Kett Cosmetics makeup artist was priceless!

Tattoos take time…but eventually they’re all gone and completely WATERPROOF!

Thank you to Joanne Parks for flying in from Toronto, Canada for our training session. We all learned so much and we really appreciate your time and sharing your insider tips and tricks!  Our entire makeup artistry team is looking forward to sharing our new techniques and using them to continually make our brides look flawless, photo-ready and gorgeous on their wedding day!
