Tai & Noah's Wedding

It has been a very busy wedding season here at Erin Ford Makeup + Skincare!  Thank you to all of the brides who have chosen us for your big day!  It is such an incredible honor to share in such a special occasion!

On today's blog, I present you with photos from a recent wedding I did makeup for down in Kinderhook.  These photos were taken by photographer Keira Lemonis who never ceases to amaze me with her gorgeous captures!  I am so in love with these!  My bride Tai did such a lovely job putting everything together!  It was truly a magical day!  

For Tai's makeup, she had requested to do something natural that would tie in with her bohemian, outdoor wedding.  I used our long-wear airbrush foundation, paired with neutral, matte shadows on the eyes, a peach blush, a shimmery champagne highlighter on the cheekbone, a light, coral lip gloss and a pair of false lashes to complete the look. The airbrush foundation was a perfect choice to withstand the 90+ degree weather she had that day!
