Engagement Makeup Look

Hi my beauties! Today I wanted to take some time to talk about my engagement photo shoot makeup look. Why I decided to go with a “no makeup- makeup” look and the products I used.

Our Story (briefly):

I’ve known my fiancé since freshman year in high school, and during our high school years we were best friends (nothing more). He was always funny and witty and the sweetest.  We lost touch after high school for a few years, and then reconnected through a mutual HS friend. Well, fast forward 2 and a half years later, now we are planning our wedding! We couldn’t be happier, and through the ups and downs he is always my best friend first.

The Shoot:

We met at 58th and 5th with Rowell Perez, who is an amazing photographer. Then we moved onward towards Central Park for the pics. I decided that for the shoot, I wanted a natural look. I wanted to look fresh faced with a bit of a glow, and lastly, I didn’t want my makeup to overpower our moment. I know most people who know me would have thought otherwise, but there is a reason even Kim Kardashian West loves the “natural” look– it goes with every occasion and it’s super classy.

The Makeup:

For my “fresh faced- no makeup-makeup look” I used the following:

Now see, already a lot of product goes into play for this look, but the end result is very fresh, clean, and soft. I think it translates well with these photos, and again, doesn’t take away from the moment. In my personal opinion, the pictures should reflect the love and happiness of the couple and shouldn’t be overshadowed by the makeup, but that’s how I prefer it, there truly is no right or wrong way!

I hope you enjoyed this post belle’s until next post! ♦♥♦

Thank you Rowell for the pics! My dress is from Banana Republic– no longer being sold (boo). Watch is Marc Jacobs. Jacket is from Zara.
