Ghia Balleras Trial Hair and MakeupFriday, June 19, 2009
Ghia is my beautiful bride from Maryland, USA. She and I have been coordinating via email since October, and we finally met this morning for her hair and makeup trial! Her wedding will be this Sunday already and we're both very excited!
I didn't have any problem matching Ghia's lovely skin tone with the airbrush formulas that I have because she has a lovely shade of tan.
The wanted to keep the focus on her eyes. I don't know why I wanted a very dramatic yet classic and natural for her eyes. I love the shape of her eyes.
One of Ghia's main concerns was her oily skin, but I still didn't want to make her uber matte for her wedding so I created a subtle dewy skin only on her cheeks to give her skin a great glow.
Here are more frontal pictures of Ghia:
My bridal hairstylist for Ghia's wedding is Bea Misa of Khiel's. Ghia wanted a Jessica Alba finger-swept hair and a low chignon that rests on the nape of her neck. After our trial session, Bea styled her hair in a half ponytail for Ghia's hen party at 7pm.
