Soft and Feminine Wedding Hair and Makeup by Amy Huynh Makeup Artistry

By, July 30, 2012

I am a freelance hair and makeup artist with a focus on bridal beauty, fashion, and commercial artistry. I work on location with many of my brides, or out of my home studio in Orange County. I truly believe that everyone is beautiful in different ways, and I use makeup to enhance that beauty.

I recently had the honor to work with a wonderful bride, Patricia, and her seven bridesmaids! Patricia and Daniel tied the knot at Sacred Heart Church in Coronado, followed by a fun celebration at the Ultimate Skybox in downtown San Diego. The feel of the wedding was refined and elegant, with a bold pop of pink!

To complement the feminine feel we were after, I gave Patricia a very soft and natural makeup look.

I met Patricia one month prior to her wedding day. She came to my studio for her makeup and hair trial. We tried three different looks and decided to have her hair down and on one side for the wedding day.

Patricia is one of the funniest brides I have ever met. She is super sweet and so easy to work with.  I love when a bride can take a deep breath and be herself. It was such a pleasure assisting Patricia and her bridesmaids with makeup and hair on her special day.

This happy couple was surrounded by close friends and family at their Ultimate Skybox reception. Patricia’s beautiful and natural look lasted all night long, and even outlasted a dress change and lots of dancing!

Vintage Wedding Hair and Makeup by Paula Mayer

By, June 20, 2012

I recently worked with a gorgeous bride for her outdoor wedding at the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe. I created Catherine’s vintage hairstyle reminiscent of a 40’s glamour style and soft makeup highlighting her beautiful eyes with emphasis on long flirty eyelashes.
