When I was contacted by Loverly to partner with them and come up with some fresh looks for these gorgeous dresses I was ecstatic. First of all the dresses are to die for and to be able to create makeup looks, using them as inspiration is exactly what I love to do! I sang professionally for weddings for fifteen years and boy did I see a plethora of gowns, themes, successes and disasters. That’s why I love The Loverly concept:
Their “…mission is to make wedding planning simple and more fun.”
The great convenience of a website that also has a mobile app, creating a one stop shop that helps to simplify the wedding planning process while helping brides and grooms to find the right combination of who to hire, what to buy and all the while inspiring with great ideas and it’s perfect for today’s fast paced society! I love it and I think you will too…
To wet your appetite here are some possible combinations using their gorgeous dresses and some of my makeup ideas for the big day ahead. ❤
I call this look “Angel Shimmer”
When I saw this dreamy gown I fell in love. Click here for gown details. The ombre pinky-lilac feathers fusing into white was heavenly and screamed for an angelic pairing, so I created this shimmery pastel makeup look that keeps it ethereal….Mixing soft pastels with fine glitters and a dewy complexion, compliments the color palette here beautifully…Sweet and fresh with an angelic glow….

This next pairing I’ve named “Indigo Elegance”
What is more elegant than Chantilly lace? A twist on the vintage cat-eye using indigo liner, to compliment this amazing silhouette is! You can find the dress details here. Unifying this ivory lace work of art with a flawless flushed complexion, berry pout and indigo accent color is modern and divine in person and in pictures.

One of my favorites is this next look: “Crimson Smoke”
Would you wear a red dress? Yes! It’s unconventional, daring and decadently rich….Dress details here. Smokey autumn browns and golds, adding a dramatic garnet lip is perfect with slightly graphic liner and a stunning matte complexion. Drama, drama, drama! This is unmistakably a fall/winter ensemble that photographs like a painting and I’m obsessed…
