I wish I would have started this blog eight years ago when I started doing hair so I could have my story all written out ready to show. But I didn't even know how big blogging was (at least to me, ha) until now. I might be a pro at hair and make up but I am def not at this, sooo, hang in there with me. I know this will be a fun journey and I am so happy you have decided to be apart of it with me. :)

Brides of Weddings Past: Channing Rothwell

It has been almost a year since I have worked with this beautiful bride. All of my brides are special to me, but this one is something else because she is my little sister. I was really excited to be able to do my sis' hair and make up for her bridals and her big day.

Channing isn't one to make a fuss about her hair and make up. She is very laid back so I was able to play around with more of the natural look with both her hair and make up. I love neutrals, golds, and brown tones of eye shadow on pretty much anybody but especially women with blue eyes. It just makes them pop and it def showed in these pictures. I really wanted to doll up her eyes and make that the focal point of her make up. Rule of thumb is if you do dramatic eyes you don't do a bold lip. So I ended up keeping her lips natural with a pink sheer lip gloss. One of my absolute favorite make up line is the Too Faced make up and this is what I used on Channing.

With her hair I wanted to play on the Grecian feel of her dress so I went with a dressed up side pony tail loosely curled and added some beautiful orange flowers for fun conversation. My sister has a natural birthmark on the right side of her hair that has no pigment and we like to show that off when we do up-dos on her so I did a deep part adding a little bit of volume in the crown.
