Exclusive Preview: Makeup Artist Talia Shobrook Creates the Perfect “Blushing Bride” Face for the Marchesa Spring 2013 Bridal Show
When I attend the New York Bridal Shows, my attention is usually focused on the hair, as there is usually more creativity being exercised there, as opposed to makeup.
*If you missed my post on the gorgeous princess bride hair and head piece, Leonard Zagami created for Angel Sanchez, click here for some inspiration.
To be fair, that is perfectly understandable, as the wedding dress is the focal point, not a bright red lip or smoked-out eyes. Save that for the other “Red Carpet Moments” in your life, like a big night out.
This is not to say that brides should content themselves with no makeup and just a slick of lipgloss. Beauty junkies – you know that the “no makeup aka natural look” is the hardest one to achieve.
Laura Mercier artist, Talia Shobrook created the Perfect “Blushing Bride” Face for the Marchesa Spring 2013 Bridal Show. For the “how-to” directions, check out her detailed face chart below.
Even if you’re not a bride to be, this look is perfect for any woman who just wants to look pretty and natural. This look, by the way, has never gone out of style, since in was in vogue as far back as the day of portraitist, Thomas Gainsborough [1727-88], a favorite of the Royal Family, who specialized in flattering portraits and landscapes “bathed in delicate and evanescent colors”.
