Recently I talked to Autumn with IVYEYEZ Makeup and here is how she created a signature makeup look for a bride.

Jasmine and I had several consultations and looked at numerous pictures from magazines and the Internet (Pinterest) as we worked to achieve the look she wanted for her wedding day. We decided on a soft, natural look with nude-pink lips for a touch of color.

Jasmine specifically requested special attention to highlighting and contouring her face, as well as defining her eyebrows, which I did. Her wedding ceremony was outside, so I created a look that was light yet with flawless, full coverage. She looked gorgeous, and her makeup complimented her dress beautifully.

I love working with brides. It is so rewarding to see the happy smiles when I finish creating the special look they’ve dreamed about for their special day. Contact Autumn here:

Clinton and Jasmine Bourgeois Wedding Details:

Our wedding was June 15, 2013 at the Courtyard Manor on Dauphin Street in Mobile, Alabama.

We were both inspired by our parents’ weddings and wanted to create the same magical feeling. We wanted a very soft, romantic, summer-like, outdoor wedding, so we chose coral and cream as our primary colors.

My dress was covered in lace with pearl detailing on the back. My birdcage veil was lightweight and vintage inspired, exactly what I wanted. My hair was styled off the shoulder with a soft wave.

My bridesmaids wore chiffon, coral, floor length dresses by Mori Lee and our groomsmen wore khaki-colored tuxedos from Jos A Bank. My flower girls wore adorable, short, linen dresses, sandals, and flower crowns.

Our decor was deliberately minimal, mostly fresh flowers and soft lighting, which worked well with the Courtyard Manor’s vines and natural outdoor setting.
