Mi is a petite woman who isn’t used to wearing makeup. We decided to create a “glass skin” texture with skin prep and sheer foundation, correcting any uneven tone with concealer. Mi wanted her lashes to stand out, and her cheeks and lips to be peachy. The final look was definitely a glassy apricot look! Fun fact: Mi’s sister is in fashion school, and she designed and sewed her sister’s wedding dress by hand!
This wedding had both traditional Indian elements, along with components of the quintessential American wedding. Charishma had 3 outfit changes, and we wanted a makeup look that would translate well through the many outfits. Photography by Too Much Awesomeness
