Ekaterina & Konstantin’s wedding in Tuscany

Hi, my beautiful brides!

Here I’m happy to show you a video of a beautiful destination wedding of a Russian couple Ekaterina and Konstantin in Tuscany.

The bride Ekaterina decided to do two bridal looks for her ceremony:

1. A morning look with her hair up decorated with a braid, natural make up with eyeliner and bright lipstick matching her colourful dress.
 

2. A second bridal look for the wedding itself. She had a very sophisticated bridal dress. I changed her hairstyle into a bridal half updo: loose curls, braids at the back and a handmade hair accessory to decorate it, light grey smokey eye with eyeliner to enhance her dark eyes and nude colour lipstick.

ENJOY THE VIDEO!

Kristina’s wedding in Taormina (Sicily)

Hi beauties!

Today I would like to tell you about a wonderful experience I had last summer, on August 2017.

I love my job not only because I love making women look beautiful, but also because it gives me the unique opportunity to travel everywhere, even in such places that no one ever heard about. Last summer I was planning the trip to Sicily with my friends as I heard so much about this wonderful land. Lots of couples go there to have their destination weddings. Why? Because of the amazing seaside, sun, greenery and archaeological sites.

At the same time I received the request from a beautiful couple that was going to get married in Taormina. So, part of my summer holidays route was decided: wonderful Taormina, a small town with lots of beauties to explore. A day before the wedding I met my bride Kristina to discuss her preferences in make up and hair to decide on her bridal look. She didn’t want a trial as she and her husband came from Siberia and didn’t want to lose even one hour of fantastic Sicilian sun and great weather. So we met directly on the wedding day.

Kristina is a very beautiful girl with blond hair, fair skin and blue eyes: seems like she is eighteen years old, as she looks very very young. She told me she almost doesn’t use make up, so I decided to do a very natural luminous bridal make up with a little bit of brown eyeliner and false single eyelashes, warm shades eyeshadows and a very natural peachy-nude lipstick by Mac.

Her hair is very beautiful and long, but she wanted a thicker result: so we used hair extensions and I created a side bridal hairstyle decorated with a beautiful hair accessory that Kristina brought with her.

They weather was great, not too hot, with a pleasant sea breeze; and the guys really enjoyed their wedding in Sicily!

Oksana's destination wedding in Rome

This is my beautiful bride Oksana. She was getting married in Rome as her husband is Italian but they live in Germany. It was an international wedding. Oksana didn’t have any time for the trial as when you live abroad it’s not easy to organise all the things together, especially with the timings in big cities. So we had a beauty consultation online and she explained me her preferences.

Oksana is a very beautiful girl, seemed like a model to me: very tall and slim, with beautiful big eyes and full lips. So her bridal make up was very natural and radiant, in warm shades, just with some eyeliner and false eyelashes. Her wedding dress was very romantic and she had a fantastic handmade hair accessory; so I decided to do a very soft updo with some curls that went out of the hairstyle so it seemed a bit messy. 

Laura's destination wedding in Tuscany

 

It’s no surprise that Italy is a great place to celebrate a destination wedding, especially in May when the weather is warm and sunny but still not hot and humid. And Tuscany with its hills, green fields, endless sky and cypresses is an ideal place for a wedding.

My beautiful bride Laura from Manchester together with her husband were dreaming of a wedding like this. For them it was a romantic escape from the rain and the grey sky, together with some of their friends and relatives.

We met one day before at their villa in Tuscany and did the trial. Laura wanted a very soft and natural updo and a very radiant and fresh bridal make up. For me it was easy to understand what she wanted as she had clear ideas what suited her best. So on the wedding day I came with my team to the villa to do Laura’s and Laura’s bridesmaids hair and make up.

As Laura's hair are thin I used hot rolls to give it a nice root volume and create a very soft effect. When the florist brought her flowers, he brought also some for the hair. They were amazing, all small and of different colours from pink, purple and violet. With blond hair they created a very beautiful contrast. For the make up I used a lot of highlighters for cheekbones, neck and shoulders from Huda Beauty highlighting palette, Giorgio Armani Lasting Silk foundation for a radiant and long-lasting look, a very think like of a dark brown gel eyeliner by Mac and surely single false eyelashes to make the eyes more expressive. For the lips I used long lasting lip paint by Huda Beauty and a lip balm by Mac on the top. 

I hope you liked Laura's bridal hair and make up!

Irish wedding in Rome

Sometimes it rains even in Rome. I remember the day my clients from Ireland got married in Rome: the day before the weather was fantastic, but on their destination wedding in Rome it was raining. The thing I love about Irish people is that they are very mind, polite, hospitable and happy, no matter what: despite of the rain they were having fun!

I really enjoyed doing make up of my client; her skin looked a bit tired and had some imperfections, but after hydrating treatment, facial mask, some massage, good foundation and concealers that made the skin look fresh, radiant and dewy, the rest was very simple: a nice accent for the eyes in pinkish shimmery shades and some false eyelashes. For hairstyling I used hot rolls by Remington to achieve the maximum volume for thin hair and then created a soft updo. The final look was very chic and elegant.

Nothing is more rewarding for me than my client 's happy smile!

The wedding was organised by the wonderful wedding planner Svelana→
