Did you catch last weeks’ Spring Wedding Makeup Tutorial where I used my favorite Jane Iredale products to create a fresh bridal look? It was such a fun tutorial and I hope you enjoyed it! This week, I continue my wedding theme with a focus on flower girls.
Although not all weddings include them, flower girls are a traditional part of the wedding procession. They represent the bride passing from childhood to adulthood and warm the hearts of the attendees before the bride appears. For this shoot, Spring Wedding Flower Girls, I created a look that is both youthful and whimsical.
I wanted to keep the girls looking natural and not too made up, so I first prepped their skin with Weleda Baby Calendula Face Cream, then applied Natasha Denona Face Glow Foundation. To cover any discolorations under the eyes, I brushed on Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer. Next I used Tata Harper Cheek Tint in Very Popular for a soft flush to cheeks and finished the look with Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch on the lips.
For their hair, I sprayed with Hairstory Undressed, blew it dry, and added Hair Balm to create a bit of texture. After curling their hair with a 1 inch curling iron, I ran my fingers through to break up the pieces. Lastly, I sprayed R+Co Outer Space Hairspray to hold the curls in place. The flower crowns were beautifully hand crafted with carnations, Italian Ruscus, spray roses, and wax flowers.
These girls are just too cute! Their dresses, from Pippa & Julie, have a soft and natural feel. From left to right in the photo above are the Angelina Blush Sequins Dress, the Angelina Gold Shimmer Dress, and the Alice Ballerina Gold Dress.
The setting which was in the San Bernardino Mountains of Moreno Valley, CA., added a rustic backdrop with its dusty trails, desert greenery, and wild succulents.
From the bride to the littlest ones in the wedding party, I enjoy making each look and feel special on this memorable day. Do you plan to have flower girls in your wedding?
