Weddings are supposed to be about celebrating your love and having a good time but all too often they become bogged down in ceremony and social etiquette. Are your plans for your wedding look not quite traditional?  Having an unconventional wedding?  If you don’t  conform to the traditional brides aesthetic and don’t find  inspiration in ‘pretty’,  you may just feel more comfortable disregarding convention when comes to style and beauty. It’s your wedding, who says you can’t rock that ultra heavy black liner on those smoky eyes piled on extra with feathered eyelashes? Why not?  You are the bride and you rule baby. Read on

Even the annual fête, which formally kicks off the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s yearly Costume Institute exhibit injected pure drama and wonderment on May 9th, 2013 as it celebrated with a punk theme. So,  how does this unconventional theme justice and inspire bridal looks? Well… I am a big advocate for brides doing what makes them happy and showcasing their vibrancy and personalities through the makeup and hair. For the past three decades my approach to makeup styles has been heavily inspired by a combination of haute couture and street fashion creations. However, most of my brides are inspired celebrities red carpet looks. So take a look at how this year’s gala punk theme inspired celebrities to leave their usual glowing red carpet beauty looks behind and instead opt for something a tad more experimental. I predict that this is going to take bridal styling  to a whole new level…

 

 The Met Gala truly brought out a bevy of style stars, from models to designers to Hollywood's A-list with their punk-inspired beauty looks.

Despite its punk dress code, this year’s New York Met Gala Ball fashion had plenty of bridal inspiration too.

I started this blog as an online diary — a place to gather my thoughts and inspiration. Sometimes what excites me artistically is the opportunity to juxtapose beauty and energy against the harder edges. Having experienced the punk fashion scene from its early stages, at times I’m tired of its exaggerated clichés. Let’s face it, too many spikes, skulls, crosses can look a bit tasteless and kitsch after a while. I still love the mood and style but, I now prefer simpler and more elegant versions of punk couture, especially those that breath a new life into traditional “dark” accessories.  Check out these great samples of what I mean:

BRIDAL MAKEOVERS is all for reviving a bridal style that has been eclipsed on the runways by Kate Middleton clones. Bring us your subversive mélange of Goth, punk and fetish style and we’ll create a hair and makeup look that is infused with razor-chic allure for your wedding.

Best wishes,
