Whimsical

From Divine Weddings & EventsRobin & Robin – yes their names are the same! – had a beautiful spring Alice in Wonderland themed wedding. Soft pastels, garden flowers, and the right touch of whimsical details that are still elegant and timeless.

The seven bridesmaids carried a variety of florals – either a bouquet, a wreath, floral belt or floral necklace. Such memorable details!

The cake took on a pretty Alice in Wonderland theme with garden touches of roses and moss, but had some elegant glamour as well with some added sparkle and the gold scripted Eat Me topper.

The reception looked stunning in the Crystal Ballroom of the Fort Garry Hotel – a black and white checkered dance floor worked so well with the theme. Striped linens and rose topiary centerpieces brought it all together. And if guests so inclined, tea and cookies from the tea bar.

#BridalBeautyBreakdown: Romantic Drama

Drama isn’t always a bad thing, especially when it comes to your wedding day makeup. And, if you’re planning a glamorous, dramatic and oh-so romantic big day, you should look the part from head to toe—starting with your beauty. Enter Kathleen Tinney of A-List Makeup, who created the gorgeous look below. With her tips and product recommendations, you’ll look every bit the glamour goddess you are!

GET THE LOOK

BASE

It’s always important to begin with a well  cared for base. The skin is one of the best ways to achieve a more youthful and healthy glow, and with that, it allows for a lighter makeup application. Start with an emollient cream and allow time for the moisturizer to sink into the skin. At the same time, apply a lip moisturizer so it has time to sink into the lips for a smooth lipstick application further into the application process. 

FOUNDATION

Lightly distribute a liquid foundation over the skin using a foundation brush to buff and blend it into the skin. Top the foundation off with a light layer of powder to set it. 

EYES & BROWS

The focal point of this look was the beautiful berry lips and pink cheeks, so keep the keep the eye makeup very neutral. Begin with an eyeshadow primer to ensure then makeup will last. Then, define the eyebrows, the pillars for the face. One of the most natural ways to fill in the eyebrows is with an eyeshadow powder. With a thin angled brush, begin at the tail end of the eyebrow, and work your way towards the center, while keeping a subtle gradient of color—darker on the tail and lightest in the center. It’s easy to get carried away when filling in eyebrows, but for the most natural look, take it slow, and remember to use a gradient from dark to light. For the most natural look, if you have darker hair always go a shade lighter, and if you have lighter hair, go a shade darker. After defining the eyebrows, sweep a natural mid-tone brown over the whole lid and then used a waterproof gel liner to line the eyes, adding a wing at the end to lift and define the eyes. Next, take a light champagne tone shimmer eyeshadow and place it very lightly on the inner corner of the eyes to brighten and open them. Top of the look  with mascara, or for extra drama, apply a natural-looking, wispy set of falsies

LIPS

When doing a bold lip, apply the lipstick before the blush, so you can determine the amount of blush needed in order to add color back into the face, but to not compete with the bold lip. After all, we want to look youthful and romantic and not too over done! Use a lip pencil to line and fill in the entire lip.  Then, apply lipstick to the entire lip, using a tissue to blot any of the access moisture in the lip, and then reapply one more time. 

CHEEKS

Dab a fluffy brush into a berry toned blush and gently apply on cheeks in an outward motion. It’s always better to start very soft and continue adding until perfected. To create a cohesive lip and cheek, use similar shades for both applications. 

HIGHLIGHT

A very step, and one that really pulls everything together and adds that youthful glow, is to highlight! With a fan brush, ever-so-gently sweep it across the high point of the face: cheekbones, nose and cupids bow. The best tip in applying a highlighter is to remember that less is always more!
