Cheers for The Dolls - Marlene

One of our georgeous September brides, Marlene, had the nicest things to say about our services on Wedding, a perfect review in fact....

From Marlene...
Indiana did my make-up for my wedding last Saturday. She is very professional and efficient. She is calm and didn't stressed me at all that day. She arrived before time, she was very organized. She listened to what I was expecting regarding my make-up and made some wise suggestions. It looked perfect and very natural in the same time. I highly recommend her.

Thank you Marlene for your kind words!

Bridal Beauty Inspiration Folder - Snipi

In our previous post, The Makeup Dolls suggested creating a beauty inspiration folder of magazine tear outs for hair and makeup to bring to the trial, but how about this idea? Creating an online inspiration folder! With Snipi, you can collect, organize, share and collaborate (with your makeup and hair artist, of course) all of your inspirations!

Using Snipi's tools, you can capture products, photos, videos and other content from virtually anywhere on the web. Snipi automatically gathers information about the snipped item and saves it to your profile on where you can keep it organized for yourself, or create collections that others can contribute to. It's like a virtual, living inspiration board!

But wait there's more! You can share your stream with your fiance, mother or bridesmaids by using a custom URL, or people can subscribe to your stream using RSS. You can also share the items via Facebook, Twitter, or your WordPress blog without leaving the original website where you found the inspiration.

If that's not enough, there is also an iPhone app too and it's free! Feel free to leave a link to your Snipi inspiration board on our blog and inspire us too!

Ask The Dolls - How to choose a bridal look

The Makeup Dolls are often asked how a bride should go about choosing her bridal look for the big day. Here are a few key things to consider:

1. Theme. What is the theme and/or feeling of the wedding? Is the day very clean and ultra modern? Is it more Old Hollywood and glamorous? Vintage? A preppy, yacht club affair? Whatever it may be, translating it into the bridal beauty look will just reinforce the theme and/or feeling.
2. Dress. A brides dress is probably influenced by the theme and/or feeling and makeup and hair should certainly tie in with both to add to a complete, polished bridal look.
3. Personal Style. Personal style is important to consider. If a bride is interested makeup and hair styles that tend to be more Hollywood glam but the wedding is the picture of modern, why not combine elements from both styles. Choose an up to the minute, very today hair style and pair it with a classic red lip and black cat eye liner.

We ask that our brides bring a few pictures with them to the trial session. We suggest tearing out pictures from magazines of makeup and hairstyles that are of interest and create an inspiration folder. It makes our time with the bride much more productive and we have more time to spend really fine tuning a look just for her.
