NIKA'S FAVORITE MAKEUP STYLE Skin that looks like skin-- bring on the freckles! I'm obsessed with adding coverage only where needed, subtle contouring that defines the face in a photo, and gorgeous lashes that look like you've been growing them for years.
MOST INSPIRED BY Character studies, fine art wedding photography, work by Paolo Roversi and Richard Avedon, and romantic comedies before 1996. To me, makeup helps tell part of the story of your day, so it should translate that excitement, love, and joy into your bridal look.
MY IDEA OF DRAMATIC BRIDAL MAKEUP A modern take on a vintage-inspired look-- Darker lid, slightly winged eyeliner, a little more contouring here and there, and a great bold lip. Biba-inspired, but leans more Romantic than glam. I'm not crazy about "transforming" someone on their wedding day. I want you to be able to look back at your photos 20 years from now, see that hint of blush and beaming smile, and be reminded of how happy you felt that day.
