What was the inspiration for the look?
The Inspiration came from Athens Greece- Berta wanted the girls to feel sun-kissed and sultry while keeping everything neutral toned as not to compete with the details of the collection.
What would you recommend that brides focus on when creating their look? What should they focus on?
I always tell every bride that on the day of the wedding it’s most important that they feel like the best version of themselves. A wedding isn’t always the best time to try trends or switch up your routine. A rehearsal dinner or reception is usually a better time to make a statement with your makeup but to be timeless and effortless always is a win for a ceremony.
“My makeup aesthetic is one that’s simple. Minimal and effortless with maximum impact. By making all women feel like the best version of themselves with a fresh modern approach that feels timeless. ” Charlie Riddle.
