Natural glam for this fair-skinned beauties big day!

Karen is a sweet soul with a contagious smile that brightens up the room.

I had the pleasure of doing her trial one 2 separate occasions, because she was experimenting with her hair color and we wanted to make sure her look was perfect for her. (Something to keep in mind if your are considering a hair color change before your big day :)

On her big day, I had the pleasure of meeting her sisters and nieces.  It was clear that Karen's family loved her to pieces, and were SO excited about her big day!

Karen was such a happy bride, that she was practically glowing. It was a beautiful energy to be around!

Since her big day, Karen has continued to be a source of support and awesomeness by recommending me to brides to be looking for makeup artistry services. She also brightens up my feed with her posts about her newlywed bliss.

I'm so glad that I had the privilege of being a part of her special day <3 

The Look:

We used the #AnastasiaBeverlyHills #SoftGlam palette for the eyes. Tempura was all over her lids, and i sculpted the crease with a mix of Burnt Orange and Dusty Rose

Her foundation and concealer were the #UrbanDecay #Naked foundation in the shade 0.5 .We used #Kiss lashes in the style #Shy. We used #Lancome blush in Miel Glace for her cheeks and finished the look with LipSense in the shade #Roseberry.

Their Story:

Chris and I met through Plenty of Fish back in December of 2015. We began sending messages back and forth, then he was very persistent and convinced me to talk to him on the phone, and then it wasn’t long before we arranged our first official date at Mission BBQ.

Chris was so sweet and worked around my crazy, hectic night shift schedule to be able to see me. I will never forget when Chris described himself to me, he said he was very “particular”. He was not wrong! He is particular in so many different areas of life. But, that is one of the many reasons why I love him. We clicked instantly, had so much in common, and I knew that this man was extremely special, had a great sense of humor (filled with corny jokes of course!), was adventurous, and was a fabulous cook!!  He was super supportive as I was finishing grad school and working long hours. We have pretty much been inseparable since we met.

Chris proposed in May of 2017 at one of our favorite spots along the Yellow Breeches Creek, where we have frequently gone bike riding and kayaking together. It was a sweet moment with just the two of us and I ugly cried!! We were married August 11, 2018 surrounded by our amazing friends and family in Lancaster, PA. The ceremony and reception were exactly as we had envisioned and it was the most joyful, beautiful (hot!) day. We cried so many happy tears and I would not have had it any other way! We even had a bicycle theme to pay tribute to our love for riding bikes! We are now a happy family of 4—us and our 2 pups, Dakota and Heidi—living in Mechanicsburg, PA!

I have never felt more beautiful than on my wedding day, in large part thanks to Melody! I was worried at first about being such a fair-skinned bride, but Melody was able to give me a natural look, while still making me feel gorgeous and confident. Melody was such a calming and fun presence on wedding morning! She came to my hotel suite with a special setup. She did the makeup for myself, 2 bridesmaids, and my mother-in-law. Everyone was so happy with their look! Melody made us all look amazing and the makeup also photographed beautifully. I will continue to recommend Melody to other brides!
