Joanna's wedding was located at the beautiful Priest Lake in Idaho. Surrounded by rich forests and snow capped mountains framing the peaceful lake this was definitely a wedding to remember. Doing the makeup at this location was like a mini vacation from my busy everyday life! I will definitely have to take a trip out there for a weekend getaway. For her makeup Joanna wanted something natural and classic. I wanted her skin to look as natural as possible and her eyes to be defined without looking over done. I kept the eyeshadow to a minimum and went for a matte neutral look. I used a subtle black winged liner to hide the gorgeous false lashes which made her eyes look sultry yet fresh.
I was very happy with the way it turned out. She looked naturally beautiful and glowing. For lips I used CHANEL UltraWear Lip Color in the color Rose Quarts. Those lip colors are great for weddings because they are extremely long wearing and transfer resistant, which is great when you are kissing your groom! Her foundation is a mixture of CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua which I love for a natural glow, and Perfection Lumiere which has a 15 hour wear. I like to use the Vitalumiere Aqua all over the face for light natural coverage, then use the Perfection Lumiere down the T-zone and where ever extra coverage is needed. She didn't want a drawn on brow look (which I generally don't recommend anyways) so I used MAC Omega eyeshadow with an angled brush for a softer effect.
