Indian Bridal Makeup – Jesica’s Romantic Morning

In the wee hours (4am to be exact) of the morning, last August, the beautiful bride to be, Jesica, arrived at my studio to have her bridal makeup and hair artistically done for her Bal Harbour Beach sunrise engagement photo shoot. Choosing the right bridal makeup look is one of the most exciting parts of planning for your big day. I wanted to create a makeup look that was an extension of who Jesica is.The aim was to create a look that was effortless. That was the one word that encapsulates what Jesica wanted to achieve when it came to her bridal e-shoot makeup.

All I can say is “Looking Effortless Takes Effort!” Often, that which looks effortless takes the greatest of skill and artistry to achieve. When you combine such a lovely bride (inside and out) and the incredibly talented photography of Otto Haring, the result is an over-the-top romantic look, and if weddings are anything, they are just that. It was a great pleasure enhancing Jesica’s beauty while making it look like we didn’t have try too hard. Check out the engagement photos:

This week, I had the honor of doing the makeup for a gorgeous Hungarian bride once again. It was such a pleasure working with Eszti that I just had to share some of beautiful Key Biscayne wedding photos taken by the talented photographer, Otto Haring. Eszti’s soft, beachy waves were created by ultra-artistic hair stylist Kei Pucci, and her natural makeup was created by yours truly – Aradia.


It was such such an honor to be part of Eszti's special day!
