When a client tells me her wedding vibe inspiration is “disco glam”, I trip over myself getting her the booking paperwork. Liz told me her one “must have” at the reception was a disco ball. Yessssss.
The lovely planner Alison introduced me to Liz, and I fell for her spirit and style immediately. Liz and Javier shared their wedding day of May 19 with another couple in England, but no royalty was overshadowing Liz’ gold glitter eyeshadow or winged lashes!
That Saturday provided moist weather in NYC, so I prepped her skin with Bioderma Sensibio Light Moisturizer, and worked Makeup Forever mattifying primer into her t-zone. After blending together a symphony of brown shadows to provide a backdrop for Liz’ intense blue eyes, I laid down a thin layer of Two Faced Glitter Glue to help the Naked Cosmetics Mineral Shadows in gold apply smoothly and stay put all night. Her lips were a beautiful blend of Bite Beauty pigments. (Look at those earrings!)
We loved working with her beautiful, smart, and interesting bridesmaids. One gal flew in from London for the wedding! Liz’ husband is from Argentina, and his gorgeous mother and aunt added much love to the prep time.
Liz had the chance to prep close to the Brooklyn venue – in the Brooklyn Heights apartment where she grew up! Her father hosted us all, making a comfortable setting with brunch and bubbles, beaming with love the whole day.
Congrats to Liz and Javier, and thank you for including us in your wedding day!
