Wedding Wish Wednesday: Make Up Tips with Daniel Martin

Just as the right outfit isn’t complete without the perfect accessory, no look is complete without a fresh face of makeup. Such was the case at the Christos, Kenneth Pool and Amsale bridal shows this Bridal Market.

Celebrity makeup artist, Daniel Martin led the brilliant makeup team backstage at the Cristos, Kenneth Poole and Amsale Bridal Shows this past Saturday. Amsale’s inspiration draws from understated drama paired with daring, modern style. To complement the designs, Daniel prepped the skin with Koh Gen Do’s Oriental Plants Essence giving it a fresh, dewy complexion. When sculpting the face, Daniel used Koh Gen Do Fresh Face Cheek Color and Maifanshi Face Powder, enhancing the natural beauty and line of the cheek bone. Amsale also adores a bold, bright lip and by using Koh Gen Do’s Sheer Berry Lip Gloss and Pink Red Lipstick, Daniel was able to create a powerful lip without overwhelming the face.

"The Amsale bride is strong and confident. We focused on creating balanced skin and created dimension to the brows and cheek with sculpting shades. The eyes looked dreamy with liner on the inside of the eye with a few coats of mascara and lips were a healthy pink with a bit of sheen. Refined and polished beauty is the Amsale bride," said Daniel Martin

Koh Gen Do products are available at Barneys New York.

Monique Lhuillier Fall 2011 Collection + Trunk Show

When they speak of fairy tale dresses, they had Monique Lhuillier in mind. I had the pleasure of attending the Monique Lhuillier Fall 2011 runway show over the weekend and the collection was a floral fantasy come to life.

Inspired by the celebration of love and life, the collection heralded the comeback of romance and extravagance. Petals, leaves, rosebuds, delicate embroideries and lace, were all lightly-handedly woven into the collection. Divine gowns floated across the runway, setting many hearts aflutter, while darling short little white dresses proved to be the perfect thing to slip into for a night of dancing.

Can't wait for your own Monique Lhuillier gown? Make your way over to the flagship Melrose Place Salon for the trunk show. Truly you will not want to miss out!
