Houston Hair & Makeup Artist | Caitlin’s Medieval-Mystical Wedding Beauty Journey | The Parador
How we met
Caitlyn and I met through her wedding planner. Claudia and I have worked together on quite a few projects and I’m always honored when she sends a client my way. When I met Caitlyn, her smile walked through the door before she did. She had beautiful blonde hair and full brows with gorgeous skin. She was definitely a beauty.
Our initial meeting was at my studio for her hair and makeup trial which went really well. She was going to take engagement pictures that evening and needed her “do” done as well as her makeup. I remember asking about her fiancé and how hey met which she tole me. She also told me about how they have a love for medieval games and shows.That was a language I didn’t speak but could easily catch on to from my dear bride as she explained things. At the end of the consultation she looked fabulous and the rest is history!
The wedding day
On her wedding day Caitlyn was completely calm, cool and collected. She had that beautiful smile on her face as usual as she walked around in her bridal robe and talked to her mom and bridal party.
Her hair: Caitlyn chose an updo which I pulled away from her face allowing her bang to lightly sweep down before going back into the tousle-pinned curls. She had a beaded headpiece that I weaved through her hair and secured on top.
Her makeup: She chose an airbrush makeup and a light and airy look for the big day not holding back on her bold lashes and a classic red lip to accentuate the look.
For the wedding party: Caitlyn allowed her bridal party to choose their hair and makeup styles. I think this was the first wedding we’d worked that had a set of twins so that was fun. Everyone pretty much wanted a natural look including the moms and we were happy to oblige.
I must say that Caitlyn’s mom was one of the best mothers of the bride we have ever worked with. She had snacks for everyone, she helped us set up and even offered to help take our equipment down to our cars. She was such a pleasant person to work with and very kind.
