Absolute Elegance Bridal Inspiration Shoot

Last year, Wani Olatunde asked me to be a part of this awesome project. She brought together a team of wedding vendors to showcase our work in what you might call creating a dream wedding. Together we made magic but I’ll let you be the judge of that.

Today my focus is going to be on the makeup and the transformation on our beautiful models Franca, Benedicta and Temitayo.

She isn’t afraid to think outside the box, bold is beautiful; smokey eyes with a sparkly twist, enhanced features and nude lips…

When you think bridal makeup you think neutral tones and soft shimmer;  sheer gold on the lids, smokey edges and soft pink lips.

She wants her wedding colours represented in her makeup; soft pink notes on the eyes, and an ombre pink lip…

The photos were taken by the amazing Wani Olatunde, check out Her Blog for the full shoot. Here is the team she brought together to make the shoot possible

    It feels like a real wedding. I love the matchy matchy bride best. I have never seen all pink in its finest like this before. Great job.

    The only concern I have is the ribbon around the waist is not properly finished, so it may fray. I'm planning to sewn the ends on mine just in case it begins to fray so I don't have any issues.
