Chicago/Joliet Wedding Makeup Artistry and Hair Styling

January 4, 2015

City Lights Makeup Artistry and Hair Styling services a wide range of clientele in the city and suburbs of Chicago. Our clients tend to be the sultry yet traditional bride seeking a classic yet alluring look for their big day, that will last.

One of my favorite weddings this year took place in Joliet, IL. Roughly 40 minutes from down town Chicago. The bride and groom were picture perfect. Photography, stunning. The dress, breathtaking! & the venue.. oh goodness, the venue! A lovely mansion with countless rooms and classic decor, it was truly a fairytale wedding.

Our bride’s name, Julia. Julia has gorgeous blonde curls and big bright eyes. I knew from the moment we met that she would be a ridiculously stunning bride. For her look, our hair stylist Suzy hand curled her hair using a very thin curling wand to mimic her natural curls… minus any frizz or potential frizz. Her makeup was a very subtle smokey eye (common amongst our clients). For Julia, I used a chocolate brown shadow smoked around the eyes accented with golden highlight on her brow, inner eye, finished with black eyeliner. Her cheeks were rose with a tint of color on the lips, contouring/highlighting on the face and collar bones. Check out some of the photos below.
