Rachel & David’s Big Day

Rachel & David’s Big Day: Wedding Make-up & Hair By Ellegant You

When you get married, all you think about is what the day is going to be like.

You pray and cross your fingers that it’s as beautiful as you’ve always imagined your wedding day would be! Well for Rachel and David, they got just that on their special day in October. It really couldn’t have been a more perfect spring day! These two got married at the Red Hill Estate, which had the most amazing views of Phillip Island, making it the absolute perfect location for their ceremony (coupled with their perfect spring day, of course).

Rachel was a lovely bride and I was honored to do her makeup and collaborate with Naomi Hair to give her the perfect look! Since Rachel wanted her look to include fuller and longer hair than what she had, we organized hair extensions for her, which are made using 100% human hair that you can easily treat as your own. The clip-in extensions were amazing and worked like a charm, causing no damage to her natural hair. Plus, she’ll be able to use them again and again for other special occasions (you can order them with Ellegant You anytime, wedding or not, so give us a call).

The minute we started chatting with Rachel at our studio for a trial run, we knew she was going to be pleasant to work with. She was so agreeable about it all, she really made the entire process a breeze! As for her makeup, she wanted a natural, earthly look that was totally achievable thanks to Jane Iredale foundation and pressed powder. We also did some light contouring and used the color Oyster all over her eyelids combined with a brown earthy daytime eye shadow kit that was also used on all the girls. Then we added some amazing eyelashes from Lash Republic, which are false lashes that provide a natural but full look.
