Feature Friday by Lindsay Milan - Breakfast at Tiffany's

Happy Friday, JF Beauties!

Today, meet Olga!  She's a Beauty library bride that was married this past July, and today, I wanted to share some photos of when we first met for her hair and makeup trial.

Almost intstantly, Olga reminded me of Audrey Hepburn from Breakfast at Tiffany's, which was perfect, considering she wanted a classically elegant and sophisticated look for her wedding day!  

For makeup, we kept it very fresh - a little tinted moisturizer here, a little powder to set there, and then we set to work on those gorgeous eyes of hers!

Check out this gorgeous gal - and this is with barely any makeup on yet!

For Olga's eyes, I used champagnes, taupes, 'greige' - the new buzzword for the "it" color this fall, a mix between grey and beige - and a bit of shimmery brown to contour.  I lined her eyes with JF Minerals' gel liner in a dark brown, pulling the line out a bit more for a sophisticated winged effect, and let's not forget about those lashes!  I gave Olga a few falsies for volume and length, and finished them off with black mascara. 

Insider tip: For brides out there that aren't normally makeup wearers, individual false lashes are great for wedding day pictures to make eyes pop in a subtle way.  They come in short, medium and long lengths, and are more easily customizable to your personal beauty personality than the strips you see in drugstores.  Feel free to ask to try them at your beauty trial!

To complete Olga's makeup, I swept a bit of peach blush on the apples of her cheeks, a bit of highlighter on those amazing cheekbones, and brushed on peach lipstick, just a shade darker than her natural lip color, and topped it with gloss.

Isn't she just stunning??  And what did I tell you about the Audrey Hepburn vibe!  

A beautiful bride!

Here are a couple pictures of her hair to round up this week's Feature Friday - have a wonderful weekend, beauties!
