I love when brides come to me with a celebrity inspiration for the style they want to invoke in there hair and makeup. Andrea came to us looking to the beautiful Ivanka Trump as her style inspiration for her wedding. I could not have been more excited! Ivanka always looks polished and perfect and knows how to look business professional but also how to turn up the glam in true Trump style. Andrea had every detail in order to create this look for herself. With her reception at the sleek Trump Tower Chicago, and the most gorgeous blush colored Lazaro gown,we had the task of polishing off this amazing look!
For hair, Andrea was not afraid of volume at all, and we loved it! She did want to keep her bangs down and to the side so she could still feel relatively comfortable. We loved this and always recommend it. If you are someone who always wears there bangs a very specific way day in and day changing it up for your wedding hair style may leave you feeling uncomfortable. So with that, Melanie create used Andrea’s own clip in extensions to create a high-volume updo that still left her bangs down. The look was perfection. It had the volume needed to create an almost retro feel yet was smooth and sleek to compliment her modern wedding theme.
For makeup, we decided on a variation of a grey smokey eye. I used 2 pairs of false lashes to create the depth and thickness she wanted for her lashes. The look was glamorous yet not heavy. We airbrushed her skin to create a flawless finish. I used Anastasia Beverly Hills contouring palette to heavily contour and highlight her face. For her lip color not just one color would do. I mixed 4 different MAC shades of lipstick to create the perfect, pink lip that would compliment her beautiful dress color. MAC colors used were: Pink Plaid, Please Me, Angel and Snob. It was truly a pleasure working with Andrea. Her wedding we are happy to say came out beautifully. She even had a photo-op with Bulls player Derrick Rose! How cool is that!? Our brides are the best!
To create this fairy tale Chicago wedding we highly recommend her talented team of experts that she used:
