Intimate, Sophisticated Destination Wedding

This fun, fashionable couple travelled from Colorado with a small group of close friends and family. We were lucky enough to work with the bride and create two beautiful, timeless makeup and hair looks for both her ceremony and reception. For the couple’s intimate wedding reception, they travelled out to a sandbar where they joined in marriage with their closest family.  We went for a beachy, bronzy eye and natural, glowing skin to go with her two piece wedding dress. After the bride and groom tied the knot on this beautiful, warm day, they decided to jump in the water, which for every bride is the ultimate test of the Makeup Artist’s work and as expected for us, but to the bride’s surprise, her makeup was fully in tact.

After their intimate ceremony, we went back to the hotel to create her second look of the day for her reception, which was a soft classic eye, and soft natural makeup to subtly enhance her beautiful evening dress as they were wisked away to their reception venue.

We love a trendy, sophisticated couple who has impeccable style and they were just that. We are so thankful for our clients who put their trust in us to deliver an extraordinary experience on their wedding day.

WEDDING SERIES: Why Makeup and Hair Stylists are One of the Most Important Wedding Vendors

Makeup and hair stylist is one of the most important and crucial, yet undervalued vendor in the wedding industry. Many brides believe they can do their makeup and hair themselves, but in actuality bridal makeup and hair is not everyday makeup. It is a type of makeup that requires using just the right technique and application to look flawless in photos and in person. Brides spend thousands of dollars on their dress, shoes, flowers, and ring, but skip out on their makeup and hair. 

Blush Makeup & Hair is a boutique wedding makeup and hair based in San Francisco and Hawaii. Blush provides luxurious beauty experiences that help brides look and feel amazing on their big day. Blush is also available for domestic and international travel.

Simone | Hawaii Wedding | Hawaii Makeup & Hair | Waikiki & Ko Olina, HI

Simone had to be one of the nicest, most laid-back brides I have ever worked with not to mention a classic beauty who I thought slightly resembled Audrey Hepburn. She wanted her makeup to be glamorous and dramatic so we focused on accentuating her blue eyes with a warm toned bronze smoky eye. Her overall look was flawless and classic.   She and her groom  had a few close family and friends for an intimate beach wedding on the grounds of Ko Olina. The photographs by Australian photographer Shelley Rogers captured the beauty of not only of the gorgeous Hawaii scenery, but the love that this couple shared.

Blush Winter Hawaii Wedding | Hawaii Makeup & Hair | Waikiki, HI

December 13, 2014 (12/13/14) was a big day for weddings and I was fortunate enough to work with the beautiful Kari. I am in awe of how beautiful Kari looked on her wedding day. She was absolutely radiant! Every little detail from her bouquets to bridesmaids' dresses to her makeup and hair were perfect and she had the most beautiful color palette of pink, blush, beige, and cocoa and her romantic chic style was right up my alley. Slater Robinson did an amazing job with her photos and captured the beauty of both Kari and our beautiful island. Congratulations Kari, we wish you all the best!

Katy | Hawaii Wedding | Hawaii Makeup & Hair | North Shore, HI

Katy and Joe got married at the gorgeous Loulu Palms on the North Shore of Oahu, and I was fortunate enough to style her for the wedding.

She is a natural beauty and we did very soft and light makeup that just enhanced her beautiful face. She wanted a soft, loose, and curly undo and I think the end result was stunning! Pinky did an AMAZING job photographing their day and the photos perfectly complimented the soft, romantic style that they wanted.
