Bridal Makeovers Guide to 2011’s HOT Summer Trends!

Greetings brides everywhere! Ladies, I am happy to report that this Summer is really sexy!

If you are on the cutting edge of makeup and bridal fashion, this is so up your alley or down your aisle, whichever you prefer.

The hottest trends from the runway in the Spring/Summer 2011 fashion shows are all about the details. This season there is a special emphasis on unique fabrications and couture details. Organza ruffles, sensuous silks, and creamy satins dominate, whether artfully draped, elaborately beaded, or delicately trimmed with Swarovski crystals. I just love the artful bridal makeup and hair that encapsulates the essence of these collections.

Here are my favorite Summer makeup collections. The looks created by these fashionable houses are inspired by the runway, yet very wearable for a bride.

These ready-to-wear collections combine warm and vibrant catwalk-led hues with sensual tones of blush to more intense corals; all designed to create elegant bridal looks.

Spotted on all the runways were “defined brows” paired with gel-lined eyes, a soft creamy complexion and that sought after bridal glow.

Soft shimmer on the eyes, and a bold lip seem to be the common trends. Don’t let the bright color scare you. This season, pouts are sweet and tropical! Be bold this Summer by rocking hues with an unexpected elegance. Dab on a creamy coral, fuchsia pink, tomato red lipstick with fingers for a soft look or apply with a lip brush for precision application. To prevent color from bleeding, outline lips with a matching lip-liner. For super staying power, apply a long-lasting lip stain and then liven it up with an accompanying clear gloss.

For me, bridal beauty is not just about accentuating my subjects’ outer beauty… I bring forth the spiritual inner beauty as well. But when the final countdown to the aisle is on and little time is left for healing your chakras, I use brightening products. There is nothing like artificial light to achieve that natural glow. To get this look, mix a drop or two of luminizing lotion into your foundation and you will have a refreshing glow to your skin. To use as a highlighter, dab a tiny bit on the back of your hand and use a fingertip to tap a little onto your cheekbones and under your eyebrows and inner corners of your eyes. Remember brides-to-be, it’s all about letting your spirit shine, not your nose. Keep the nose matte with a mattifying or oil control face primer on just your nose; apply base and use a matte pressed finishing powder on your nose. I highly recommend oil blotting papers as well to soak up oil without disturbing the make-up.

There are two ways to approach the daring ways to wear this season’s bright palette; on your body or on your face – not both please. Since the vibrant colors give instant impact, only minimal make-up and accessories are required.



I am receiving a lot of requests by my brides this Summer for some of the runway looks seen at the Monique Lhuillier and Alma Novia shows. Brides want what is on the cat walk, the duality of bold and sheer make-up matched with sleek hair which equates with the polished look of the classic Summer bride getting married on a yacht on Biscayne Bay or the on sandy shores of Miami Beach. I love it!

Tousled, Beachy Hair this Summer? Or Polished, Retro-Glam Hair?

Just as I am contemplating which look I love the most, along comes the most amazing top-bun/braid spotted on the hottest bridal models. It’s like a reverse French braid that begins at the nape of the neck and ends in a messy-yet-sexy topknot, resulting in the ultimate light-hearted hairstyle for Summer brides.
