Loverly and Amie Decker Beauty: Bridal Beauty Inspiration

When we were approached by Lover.ly to create Bridal Beauty looks inspired by some of their favorite current wedding gowns, we couldn’t have been more thrilled.  Putting together a brides complete look from head to toe is a job we live for!  We teamed up with Jennifer Domenick of Love Life Images to photograph our custom bridal hair and makeup looks that we would choose for these beautiful gowns provided by the fashionistas at Lover.ly.

Dress One

For our first look, we chose the beautiful ombre feather gown by Kelly Faetanini.  What an extraordinary way to incorporate Pantone’s color of the year into a wedding. We decided to pair fun and flirty makeup with a textured french twist to compliment this showstopping gown.  The radiant orchid eye shadow and soft pink lips create a beautiful balance of color for this high fashion bride.  The volume of the french twist also creates the perfect silhouette to compliment the gown.  We wanted to incorporate the texture of the feathers on the skirt into the texture of models hair without creating a busy hairstyle that would compete with the gown.  The whole look together is fun and modern yet sophisticated.  We just LOVE it!

 Dress Two

For this beautiful Watters gown we chose a classic bridal beauty look.  The drop waist gown with classic lines is perfectly complimented by long loose waves, a chic red lip, full brows and voluminous lashes.  This bridal look transcends any era and is a popular request from our Classic DC brides.  Her hair is softly pulled off her face to accentuate those beautiful eyes and luscious lashes.  We were inspired by the full tulle skirt to create full luxurious hair and the pure white color of the gown just begs for a bold red lip to frame the bride’s bright smile all night long!

 Dress Three

We were so excited to create this third look for the exquisite Oscar De La Renta gown.  We thought the gown called for a sexy smokey bronze eye and a loose romantic updo.  The juxtaposition of the high lace neck and sultry makeup just makes me melt.  Ugh, so gorgeous!!!  The hair needed to be swept up in order to reveal all of the stunning lace detail on the neckline of the gown and this romantic updo completes the look perfectly.  The delicate lace on the gown inspired  the delicate shimmery touch of the makeup.  We wanted a radiant look that would make a bride glow in this statement gown. We are dying to see this look on one of our brides this year!
