Hair and make-up can be the crowning touches on a perfect wedding day ensemble, and my sister wanted to find the studio that could expertly achieve a great look. We did some internet searches, asked for referrals, and did one trial before we found our winners: Cara Dulce. The Cara Culce studio is located downtown which was perfect for our needs.
We scheduled a hair and make-up trial with my mum, me, and Nicole and had a fun afternoon getting beautified. Here is Nicole's "before" picture, sans any make-up. Because this is my blog and I have complete control over it, I am permitted to not post a before picture of myself.
And here is a picture that Brent took several hours later of the three of us. Nicole let her hair down so that Cameron wouldn't see the final style, and it still looks cute! Doesn't my mom look beautiful?
I was really pleased with how my look turned out. The make-up was natural enough (which is somewhat of a miracle, given most make-up artists' propensity to cake on the spackle), and the hair was something I couldn't do on my own, but it was more casual than Nicole, which we wanted. I didn't even come in with an inspiration picture or idea, and Sara came up with this style and I think it's perfect. My hair was a wee bit too long at this point for this look, so I trimmed it up before the big day. Also, on the day of the wedding we ended up doing airbrush foundation for me. It was worth the extra cost because I cried during the ceremony, and airbrush is waterproof.
In short, Cara Dulce turned out to be one of our favorite wedding vendors. We three ladies are extremely picky and we were all satisfied with our looks. And most importantly, they made Nicole look a vision of loveliness on her big day.
