Every weekend that I work with a new bride, they ask me "what is your favorite bridal look you've ever done". It is honestly a very difficult question to answer, as I have completed thousands of Desi Bridal looks over the course of 7 years. I do look back on this bride with a smile as I remember how effortless the working relationship was with her. She had every ounce of trust resting in me, had just enough of her own ideas in mind while leaving me to control the direction. It paid off!

So this Dallas based Pakistani bride wanted soft curls and a gorgeous glow. Mission accomplished! I love the subtle pink lip but it has just enough color to barely "pop". I love the detail on her inner eyes with a highlight focus and slightly pointed inner liner elongate her eye shape. We did a soft airbrush at the end to set in the makeup so it was built to last!
For the shaadi look, we went with a copper eye and deep red/maroon lip. The center part in her updo really accents the classic Desi Bridal look with a tikka and joomar combo to set it off.
As you can see, this brides skin was perfection. She followed instructions as I asked when it came to proper hydration of the body and a few mindful steps of the skin. I am so glad that she took my advice as you can see the results are wow! Click here to read more about her skin care routine and here to see how she stayed so hydrated in this Texas heat.
On to the Valima look....this bride was a stunner in pastel tone mint green and silvers. This bride was running behind from a household dinner, so by the time she made it to the hall, we only had an hour to complete the look. So we went to work!! A gunmetal silver smokey eye and nude lip really pulled the color in this suit together. And the updo was playful to complete the jewelry and dupatta combo. Loved these looks. It is important that all brides select the right artist for them. This includes their on location experience and ability to handle stress so that you are still ready in a timely manner with as little stress as possible. Because Ambreen was able to trust me fully to complete these looks without her guidance, she could focus on keeping her nerves calm. Take notes Desi brides, take notes.
