This was an amazing wedding in the wonderful location of Casina di Poggio della Rota in Rome. In these photos you can see our beautiful Italian-Jamaican bride Aisha. She has a very beautiful skin and short hair, so during the trial we tried different shades for eyeshadows and lipsticks. Finally, we decided to do a radiant make up in warm shades - golden, brown and beige - with false eyelashes and a berry-red lipstick for her full lips. For her short hair, I applied natural hair extensions with clips and created a soft side hairstyle with a strass hair accessory.
This is a backstage of bridal fashion shooting with our make up and hair: two amazing wedding dresses of Iana Spose Atelier and a great romantic location Villa Sanna, near Rome. The photos were taken by Aleksandr Shvets, photographer and videomaker.
Our model Arianna had a warm shades make up and a romantic side hairstyle with lots of curls for her beautiful long hair, with a fresh flowers decoration. For Jessica we chose brown eyeshadow, black eyeliner and coral matte lips. I completed her look with a sleek and elegant bridal hairstyle with a fresh white rose.
Working as make up artist and hairstylist has its challenges. Sometimes I have photo examples of what my client wants, sometimes we combine several things in one, sometimes we invent something. This time my example was a drawing made by Mauro Gala, who is a haute couture wedding dress designer in Rome.
The dress that my bride Anna chose was very elegant and sophisticated, and so was the hairstyle. Despite my experience in wedding hairstyling it wasn’t simple to do that, as there was a big bow tie made by Mauro as a hair accessory, that was inside the hairstyle. In this case, the trial is very important as we can try and see if the hairstyle works. In the end we saw the final result with my bride, wearing her wedding dress in Mauro’s atelier. It was fantastic, as it was his creation made by me in real life from his sketch. I felt a great satisfaction!
Here you can see us doing make up and hairstyling during a fashion shooting for Christofle Jewelry Collection, in collaboration with the great Haute Couture Atelier Mauro Gala Wedding Dresses and Aleksandr Shvets, photographer and videomaker.
As Mauro Gala's dresses were very sophisticated and vintage, I created for our blond model Inna a hairstyle with vintage waves and a retro make up with light smokey eyes and red lipstick. For Chiara, in order to create a more romantic look, I did big curls for her long beautiful hair and a side hairstyle. For her make up I decided to do dark smokey eyes with eyeliner and neutral lips.
