As for you? Well, you have a beautiful bridesmaids dress to remember the occasion, but what if that stunning look didn’t have to sit in your closet?

Omni Mount Washington, Bretton Woods, NH Written by Nancy Gorman of Makeup by Nancy Creating a stunning, Persian-inspired wedding makeup look was one of the best experiences I’ve had as a makeup artist, and it makes me beyond proud of what I do.

Written by Nancy Gorman of Makeup By Nancy. Vintage weddings are some of my favorites to be a part of and today, they have become a common wedding theme.  I recently helped form a team to recreate a 1950’s themed wedding with some amazing and talented models. As the attire and décor unfolded, I was immediately back in an era of soda shops, sock hops, and drive-in movies. It was also clear that there’s an art to creating a vintage vibe that feels fresh and modern, rather than stuffy.  Given that so few truly authentic pieces are still around from this…

I often ask a bride to share a photo of herself when she felt more beautiful. This gives me important clues about how to approach her wedding makeup. Some brides are anxious, wanting me to cover up…
