Southern Summer Wedding :: JennySue Makeup Style

My cousin Liz got married a couple months ago in Atlanta (so this blog is obviously a little late). She gave me the honor of asking me if I would be her makeup artist for her big day! Of course I said, "I will." Ha. Most of you know how obsessed I am with weddings and how much I love everything that goes along with the festivities of getting ready to walk down the aisle. It's just so exhilarating to be a part of this special day and transforming a woman into a bride princess. My cuz was no exception. I mean check out the above pic of me touching up her lips while on the church steps being photographed - she was stunning!

So thought I would share some shots of me in action working with my already naturally beautiful cousin. And be sure to check out the last pic of Liz in her dress with her "something blue", which was an incredible pair of Kate Spade pumps - I wish I had thought of that when I got married 8 years ago! Such a cool detail.

Yours truly in action. Loved this huge floor mirror the church had for us to admire her in!

This was the face chart we created for Liz at her bridal consult before the big day to make sure we had the perfect look with no surprises. And Stila eyeshadow pots ($18) were part of the process. "Golightly" and "Kitten" to be exact.

Check out the lashes on Liz! Hopefully she won't mind me telling our little lash secret - there are some falsies in there to make a big but realistic impact! Ardell individual lash clumps ($4) of course.

Look how happy she looks! Hair and makeup set and she's ready to go!

See her blue satin shoes peaking out underneath the dress?? So pretty! This was her finished look and the rest of the night was a blast. And they lived happily ever after...
