Working on the gorgeous bridesmaid – navy smokey eyes and nude lips.
I did a natural makeup on the cutest junior bridesmaid ever.  Her mom was very happy with the subtle look.
I also did the mother of the bride, the makeup looked so good on her and definitely took years off.  She had me cracking up in my chair.
Onto the beautiful bride!  She wanted to look like herself but with a little bit of sparkle.  I think we accomplished it.
I applied individual lashes and went for a combination of pinks and plums.
Her dress was so elegant, love this shot.

The makeup looks super natural in the sunlight…always make sure to put extra time into blending for daytime weddings.

Her bouquet is everything!
The Bride and her crew!  Shout out to my assistant Orie Leanne Makeup for helping me with the makeup.
Hope you all enjoyed the pictures!  If you’re interested in booking me for your wedding, send me a note on my professional website www.renelynthomas.com 

Greek Bridal Makeup

At 7 weeks post partum, I got back to work with my first wedding since having baby girl.  It was like riding a bike.  I got to do makeup for a lovely bride and her sister.  It was also my first Greek wedding.  Check out the glamorous makeup we did for her traditional ceremony.


After her trial we made a few changes – we went for a gold eye over silver and went with airbrushed makeup over traditional foundation.  She loved it!  It’s always good to be flexible with your bride and give them options.  Open communication is key to having a happy client.

On the lips I used a gorgeous neutral berry color from my Viseart Lip Palette – 02 Classic Paris Velvet.  It was my first time using this color on a bride and it was really nice on her, perfect for her big Greek wedding and Fall time.

Hope you guys enjoyed!
