Limelight Thief: Miss C

October 13, 2009
Hair and Makeup for Wedding Guests

Miss C kept her outfit low-key to avoid outshining the Bride at a recent wedding. But with a little dash of glam, she probably stole the limelight just a little.

Hair
To avoid hair breakage on her permed hair, Miss C requested that no heating implements (i.e. blowdryer or curling iron) be used. Also, she wanted to keep her hair somewhat informal, so we used minimal hairspray and didn’t worry about a loose end here or a flyaway there.

By using her natural hair texture, I was able to pin waves in a free form low upstyle. We added in a french braid and twist in the front, so you could see her hairstyle from the front in pictures.

Makeup
Miss C uses minimal makeup on a daily basis (see left). So we used her Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer as a foundation base and layered large patches of buildable concealer to get more coverage and even out skin tone.

For the eyes, I used an eyeshadow palette with natural colors and a satin finish. For definition, black pencil eyeliner and two coats of mascara.

Miss C received a compliment that she was “glowing” and told me “that stuff you use really does the trick!”

The secret was a shimmering, liquid luminizer I used to bring out her cheekbones.

Tip: Showing off your neckline can make you appear taller and leaner.
