Hello beauties! This past Saturday, we had the pleasure of getting our beautiful bride Angie ready for her wedding at one of the most iconic venues in Palm Beach, and it was a dream! Alongside the picturesque shores of Palm Beach, The Breakers Hotel exudes opulence and sophistication. It’s the kind of venue that exquisitely sets the stage for unforgettable moments, especially for weddings. And when you have the privilege of styling a bride on her special day in such a luxurious setting, it’s nothing short of a dream come true.

For Angie’s bridal look, she wanted a look that was as timeless as the venue itself, and together, we created a makeup and hair style that perfectly complemented her Galia Lahav dress. In this blog post, I’m excited to take you behind the scenes and share the details of the exquisite, natural makeup and glamorous waves that made this bride radiate with beauty and elegance

The Makeup Look: Timeless & Elegant

For this luxurious wedding at The Breakers, the bride wanted a makeup look that was natural, radiant, and, above all, timeless. The key to achieving this look was to enhance her natural beauty while allowing her to shine through without being overly made up.

Here’s how I achieved this ethereal makeup look:

  1. Flawless Base: To create the perfect canvas, I started with a lightweight, long-lasting foundation that matched the bride’s skin tone. It provided coverage without feeling heavy, ensuring she looked impeccable throughout the day.
  2. Subtle Contour and Bronzing: I gently contoured her face to highlight her cheekbones and add dimension. A soft bronzer was used to give her a warm, sun-kissed glow, perfect for a Palm Beach wedding.
  3. Natural Eye Makeup: The eyes were the focal point of this look. I used soft, earthy shades with a hint of shimmer to enhance her eyes. Individual lashes were meticulously applied to create a fluttery, natural effect, making her eyes pop without being overly dramatic.
  4. Soft Lips: A nude, rosy lip color completed the look, keeping the lips looking natural and allowing the focus to remain on the eyes.

The Hair Look: Fabulous Glam Waves

To complement the bride’s natural makeup, we decided on a hairstyle that would exude both glamor and elegance. We opted for fabulous glam waves that perfectly framed her face and cascaded down her back.

Stunning Glam Waves

Here’s how we achieved this gorgeous hairdo:

  1. Prep and Curl: After washing and conditioning the bride’s hair, I used a heat protectant and curling iron to create soft, loose waves. This method ensures the waves have a natural, flowing appearance.
  2. Set and Secure: I carefully set each curl with hairspray to ensure they held their shape throughout the day. It was important that her hair remained stunning from the ceremony to the final dance.
  3. Finishing Touch: To complete the look, I gently brushed out the waves to create a more relaxed, effortless appearance, perfectly complementing the Galia Lahav Dress.

The Breakers Palm Beach is synonymous with luxury and elegance, making it the ideal setting for a timeless and natural wedding look. The bride’s choice of makeup, with its focus on subtlety and enhancement, combined with glamorous waves, resulted in a look that radiated beauty and grace. It was an unforgettable day filled with love and joy, and I was thrilled to play a part in making the bride feel her most beautiful on her special day. Her hair and makeup also wore nicely throughout the day and night making her picture perfect even after dancing and cake cutting!

The magic of this elegant wedding at The Breakers Palm Beach reminds us that the perfect look is not just about the makeup and hair but about embracing one’s natural beauty and the power of elegance. This experience was a true testament to the notion that when makeup and hair are done right, they enhance a bride’s radiance without overshadowing her charm.

Thank you Angie for choosing me to get you ready for such a big day in your life. It was a pleasure working with you and the most amazing vendors.
