We couldn't be prouder to have been a part of Lydia's wedding last year that was just featured in Martha Stewart Weddings. She and her family were a treat to work with, she let me do what ever I wanted with her hair and make-up, and oh yeah…she is a flipping DOLL!!! For the ceremony we styled her loose waves into one of my favorite styles, 3/4 up. This style pulls a little more hair back than the classic 1/2 up and creates a fantastic shape that both frames the face and keeps the hair back and out of the way. Her make-up was a brown-gold smokey eye with a little pop of shimmer at the center of the lid to draw some light to the area. I love this technique because every time you blink the light catches the shimmer.
When I returned for touchups Lydia's hair went up into the loose, textured coif I have been told is my " signature style". Nothing like having your stylist friends say, " Did you do this style? I knew it! It had you written all over it." I'm not sure about all that, but I do love nothing more than an up style that looks like it was effortlessly whipped up by a fairy God mothers wand. You know what I mean… Lydia's evening make-up was topped off with a little darker eye, some highlighter to give a " lit by candles" effect to the skin, and a creamy lip so as to not scare the groom off from smooches. Dare I say it made for a dashing entrance into the reception!
Thanks to Lydia and her family for allowing the Daniellestyle Team be a part of her event.
