Mexican-Italian wedding in Rome: my bride Lori’s make up and hairstyle

My beautuful bride Lori contacted me in January, as she was getting married with her husband. They both live in USA but Lori is originally from Mexico and her husband from Fara Sabina; so they decided to get married in beautiful Lazio as Fara Sabina has amazing landscapes, forests and fields.

We were able to do the make up and hair trial in the middle of April, but before we discussed online all the details and Lori’s preferences. During the trial I suggested to try more than one hairstyle, so she could choose the best for her. It was nice that her husband was present: he was very curious and in the end he liked everything. According to my experience, men are usually very direct in saying if they like or not their wives make up and hair, and if there is something wrong they will tell you everything right away!

On the wedding day, my assistants and I came very early as the wedding was at 10; the weather was fantastic, sunny and warm, so everyone was happy!

We did a soft low updo with a nice comb as a hair accessory that gave nice light to the dark hair, and a nice radiant make up with pinkish shades that suit perfect on Lori’s dark skin tone. Black eyeliner and false single eyelashes are always a must as they make dark eyes very expressive.

All products I used assured a long lasting but very natural effect. After the wedding, Lori wrote to me that everything went perfectly: her makeup and hair lasted until very late night.

It’s so great for my job working with different types of beauty and see how it becomes enhanced by a professional touch. For me every woman is beautiful and, as Sophia Loren said, “nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief she is beautiful”! And I’m sure this is what a make up artist should do: being a real psychologist able to help women to make their self-esteem higher!

Saresh & Arti: a romantic anniversary in Rome

Rome in april is fantastic as the weather is very sunny and warm, all trees and flowers are blooming and one can enjoy wonderful sights of the Eternal City. So did my clients from the UK!

They got married last year in april and for them this year is their first anniversary. So one month ago Saresh (the husband) contacted me through my website, as he booked a table in a very nice restaurant to celebrate the day, and he wanted to do a really nice surprise for his wife Arti. His surprise was make up, hairstyling and nails in Rome in their hotel in via Veneto for their special occasion! He sent me all the examples.

At the end it was a fantastic meeting as this couple is young, beautiful and I had a great fun to be with them; so while working I really enjoyed making their day even more special!

A nice walk around Rome on Easter

Rome is a fantastic city and it attracts creative people with creative ideas. A famous Russian actress Anastasia Busygina wanted to surprise her best friend and as a birthday gift she organised a photoshoot in Rome with professional make up artist & hairstylist and photographer service.

It was a great and sunny Easter's day: Rome was half empty as italians went out of town, so our two young women really enjoyed the Eternal City. A bit before I came to their hotel in via Veneto my client explained to me what she likes and usually does for photoshoots: she loves smoky eyes, with lots of eyelashes, nude lips and radiant skin. Her dress, by Dolce and Gabbana, was very beautiful: black with dots, long and very stylish, so great smokey eyes make up suited the whole look perfectly. I used all products by Mac.

For the hairstyle she preferred a lot of volume up, very soft and almost natural waves. Anastasia also decided to follow the style, so I did on her smokey eyes make up but in a lighter variant: it looked very well with her dress.

The girls enjoyed a lot their Roman experience taking photos all around in their beautiful dresses!

American couple engagement shooting in Rome

This was one of the most attractive couple I’ve seen recently. Both very sporty, healthy, happy and smiling. My client works in plastic surgery, so she appreciates beauty and a professionally done make up.

Her dress was fantastic, black, very simple and elegant with sophisticated black high-heeled shoes. We chose to do smoky eyes in purple and black shades with false eyelashes and simply looking hair, so the whole look was well balanced.

Judging by their photos, their shooting in Rome was just a pleasure as they felt very easy and comfortable in front of the camera!

Jon & Sofia: Swedish wedding in Rome

In the photos of Andrea Matone you can see our beautiful couple from Sweden, Stockholm. They chose Rome for its beauties, sights and marvellous weather as in Italy it’s easy to find great sunny and warm weather for a destination wedding.

This amazing couple, Jon and Sofia, got married in Rome on the 17th october 2016. They are so sweet and in love with each other even after having been 6 years together! I always admire such couples.

Sofia wanted a natural look for her make up, so I chose warm shades that accentuated her beautiful blue eyes. Then I did a soft updo with two plaits behind. They were without parents, as they both have very large families, but as you can see from the photos they really had a great time in Rome!
