I have always loved the timeless Mod Retro’s 60’s makeup look: bold strip eyelashes, strong winged out black eyeliner, pale eye shadow with a strong smoky crease, and a pale pink lipstick. This sultry makeup look has been channeled by celebrities, models on the runway and now beautiful spring brides. Spring weddings always seem to bring out soft, feminine makeup looks for me. I love to work with shades of pale pink on my brides with eye shadows, blushes and lipsticks.
Bridal Mod: my makeup twist on 60’s Mod for brides exudes spring with its delicate and ladylike color palette that compliments all brides and destination brides for their wedding. My glamxurious five Bridal Mod pale pink lipstick colors:
L’OREAL Colour Riche Lipstick *Pink Passion
Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil *Roman Holiday
Bobbi Brown Lipstick *Pale Pink No 21
Vincent Longo Lipstick *Baby Pink
MAC Viva Glam Lipstick *Gaga
