A few months ago our editor wanted to create a bridal beauty campaign that celebrates the beauty of a bride, so we reached out to one of the top beauty brands, CoverGirl. The goal of the shoot was to feature products that were long lasting and would be ideal for brides, while spotlighting various bridalstyles. We reached out to CoverGirl because of their new TruBlend MatteMade Foundation that appears to be long-wearing and transfer resistant (which is something most women crave). We also received various shades of their new Exhibitionist Lipstick and their Flourish by Lash Blast Mascara.
Here are the 4 different bridal looks we created:
1. Megan – Sexy Glam Bride
Megan’s Look: MUA Deneen applied a combination of CoverGirl’s TruBlend MatteMade Foundation in “T10+L90” & the Exhibitionist Lipstick “Just Sayin” on the lip. Stylist Chante gave Megan some soft curls to add to this sexy glam look to compliment the gorgeous gown “Raquel” from Jean-Ralph Thurin’s Evolution Collection. We added a headpiece from Maria Elena Headpieces and earrings + bracelet from our private collection.
2. Adlee – Modern Bride
Adlee’s Look: MUA Deneen applied Covergirl’s TruBlend MatteMade Foundation in “M10” & the Exhibitionist Lipstick in “Seduce Scarlet” on the lip. Stylist Ericka gave Adlee a soft updo adding a braid to give it more of a modern chic look that went perfectly with the custom sheath gown by designer Michele Blanchard of MB Design Gallery and we paired the look with earrings from Maria Elena Headpieces.
3. Rae – Romantic Bride
Rae’s Look: MUA Chandrika applied a combination of Covergirl’s TruBlend MatteMade Foundation in “D10+D50” and used “Spellbound“ on the lip. Stylist Chante gave Rae a soft half up, half down style. She’s representing for the curvy bride and we styled her in a beautiful lace Enzoani gown from Francesca’s Bridal, paired with a long cathedral veil with sparkle along the sides to match the top of the dress.
4. Krishea – Traditional Bride
Krishea’s Look: MUA Chandrika applied a combination of Covergirl’s TruBlend MatteMade Foundation in “D60” and Covergirl’s “Dulce De Leche” on the lip. Stylist Ericka gave Krishea a sleek updo fit for a princess. She was styled in a custom ballgown by designer Michele Blanchard of MB Design Gallery, the look was paired with beautiful earrings from Maria Elena Headpieces Spring “19” Collection and a bracelet from our private collection.
