When Lucia asked me to come to New York with her to do her wedding hair and makeup. I couldn’t believe how lucky i was, what an absolute dream! And of course i said YES!!!
I have always dreamt of visiting New York and what an honor to go for my love and passion of wedding hair and makeup! I cant Thank Lucia enough for giving me such an opportunity, and for believing in me to do a great job 😉
I had to post this picture of me in the Virgin Lounge! sipping on a cocktail before my flight 😀
Being a Bride in New York Lucia wanted to feel and look Hollywood glam. She wanted it to be all about Eyelashes and Eyeliner, red lips and curls! I started by curling and pinning her up so her curls could set. I applied holding curl spray, then curled and set in place. (I applied a full head of bonded Beautyworks Hair Extensions prior to leaving for new york for added length and volume. Colour #613/18 mix for natural blonde tones. These hair extensions will last up to 6 months at a time)
I always make sure I cleanse the skin before applying any products. I used Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference, Skin balancing Toner for Combination skin. This ensures any dirt or makeup is removed. Followed by Elizabeth Arden combination moisturizer.
I applied a Dior primer to even out any pores and skin texture so we have a nice base to start with.
Foundation we used Estee Lauder Double wear which gives a full coverage, followed by Charlotte Tilburys Highlight and Sculpt.
Before leaving for New York i applied Individual eyelash extensions to Lucia’s natural lashes. Big Russian volume lashes to give a feathered ultra glam look.
I used Maybeline long lasting Gel eyeliner n black, HD brows to give more definition and shape to her brows.
Finished with a Red lip by Two Faced.
I let out Lucia’s pin curls and brushed out to smooth all cuticles, giving a polished look, along with backcombing the front of her hair to give a Hollywood glamorous quiff. I applied shine spray from Bed Head to give a glossy finish. What a gorgeous Bride she made.
Cant wait to see more pictures from Lucias wedding on top of the Rockefeller Centre. The view looks exquisite!
Had to fit it some sight seeing and shopping while in New York! Be rude not to 😉 Saks Fith Avenue……Taxi!!!!

Thankyou Lucia for choosing me to come with you to New York to do your wedding hair and makeup. It was an absolute pleasure <3
