A Colorado Wedding

I flew out to snowy and beautiful Denver, CO to celebrate the wedding of my high school best friend. Not only was I her maid of honor, I was also her makeup artist for the entire weekend (bachelorette party, wedding rehearsal, and actual wedding). This weekend made me realize how much I actually like to do bridal makeup. For the bridal look, I went with a smoky, soft plum and brown eye, well groomed and defined eyebrows, lush lashes, and blush lips. The bride normally goes au natural on a daily basis so this was fun to play up her natural features! My favorite part of her face was her eyebrows. All it took was to fill them in slightly with Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in Dark Brown and a clear coat of brow gel. Since I posted a photo of my bride on social media, I've been getting asked on how much I charge for bridal makeup application which is something I never thought about but am highly considering on doing now. So, I'm thinking of going back to school to become a professional makeup artist and esthetician. At the moment, I'm currently exploring schools in the Orange County area. Do you know of any schools that I may like? If so, comment below!
