Jenny Francia Trial Hair and Makeup

Sunday, May 03, 2009

My May 9 bride, Jenny Francia, who is having her outdoor wedding in Caleruega had her hair and makeup trial today. She opted for the traditional makeup for her wedding day.

She's doing a beautiful semi-1940s wedding, and having her reception at Sonya's Garden.

For the makeup, she wanted red lips. Jenny was thinking of something brighter, but I went for something deeper. I wanted a seductive color that would go very well with her bare eye makeup.

I used a neutral shade of brown for her eyes just for contouring, and a light gold shadow for base. I double-coated her lashes with waterproof mascara before putting the false eyelashes on. I thinly lined her upper lash lines with a liquid eye liner just to cover up the lash band, and a tiny flip in the end to make her lashes appear thicker at the outer part of her eyes.

Jenny has a pair of light eyebrows so I defined them with a liquid brow gel to shape and thicken.

Facial contouring was necessary for a bit more drama, and emphasis on the cheekbones. The cheekbones and the lips would be the highlight of the whole makeup look.

What Tony did for the hair was simple but went very well with Jenny's headpiece. She bought it online and it was really nice! Very 40s vintage!

This is Tony's creation:

Curious about what shade I used on her lips? It's Lancome's Le Crayon Countour Des Levres in Cuivre/Garnet.
