A Midsummer Night’s Dream

This was the theme of Emily and Nick’s July 15th wedding at The Haight in Elgin, Illinois. I usually don’t blog about about specific weddings but I felt especially connected to this wedding since I have known a family member for many years.

Renee, Aja and I love working on this bridal party ! They were a pleasure !                The photos below by the amazing Caitlin Hazelton speak for themselves. Here are the reviews posted on Facebook, Wed FolioWedding Wire by the bride and by her Stepmom Jeanne:

Emily Ann Hauser  October 9, 2017 My makeup for my wedding day was beautiful and flawless. Thanks Wendy !

Below Review posted on Wed Folio & Wedding Wire

Wendy Kimmel is the best of the best! Truly a class act!!! I treated my step-daughter (and myself) on her wedding day to a princess/movie star experience with a TRUE professional. Emily (never had experience with a professional tv makeup artist) had the opportunity to work with Wendy before her wedding day during the trial and get a sense of the experience to come and hence, one stressor of her wedding day was alleviated. She left Wendy’s initial consult elated. She was very happy. Wendy took ample time to get to know Emily and her likes and preferences. Wendy’s goal is to enhance your natural beauty. Wendy’s team allowed the bride and the bridal party to sit back, relax and enjoy the pampering and avoid the wedding day jitters/anxiety of primping oneself.
Brides, honor yourselves: Treat yourself to the exquisite pampering Wendy and her crew can offer to you.

DIY Bridal Makeup Tips Part Three / The Natural Bride

    This will benefit all the brides-to-be who want to make absolutely sure that they look completely like themselves & that their fiances are met at the alter by the “natural girl” that they proposed to.
   Some sort of foundation is really important. Then take the makeup you wear everyday & embellish it. Change it up
with a little bling ! It doesn’t have to be DRAMATIC.
   Here are a few things you can do:
Get a delicate highlight for the area under your eyebrow like MAC Vanilla Pigment
Apply a little glow powder to the top of your cheekbones.  Purchase a new mascara that really brings out your lashes & take your time applying it.
Get a new wonderful glimmery lipgloss in a neutral or pale pink.  Any or all of these will make you feel more
bridal without compromising your comfort level.
