I love weddings and am always happy when one of my friends gets married especially when its a very close friend!

I was honored that Liz asked me to do her hair and makeup for her big day! Although, I was now getting her glammed up for her wedding day and homecoming or prom, not much has changed since our high school days when we’re together. Liz had be to ready bright and early at the beautiful Fairmont Olympic Hotel in downtown Seattle. Getting her and the bridal party dolled up was just so much fun and nostalgic. Backstreet boys was playing on the stereo, lots of laughs and references about our high school day and LOTS of hot pinks, Liz’s favorite color!

I wanted to incorporate her favorite color into her makeup look somehow so I decided to go with a YSL lip stain in a fuchsia pink color and kept the rest of her makeup clean and flawless with very neutral eyes and a winged out liner for some glam. Half up hair style with some loose curls really suits her and completed her look. She looked absolutely stunning and was gleaming, I was so happy to be apart of her big day. Congrats Liz and Ryan!

I blended everything out with soft shades of pinks and peaches so that the makeup looks pretty and subtle which works for both morning and evening.

Maria’s big day started at 9:00 am for her Chinese Tea Ceremony, so we started the makeup at 5 am and no one needed any touch ups throughout the entire day! I just made sure the girls reapply their lips after they eat, the makeup last until midnight! The wedding venue was straight from a wedding magazine, such a pretty wedding!
