Armenian Bridal Makeover

So this is something I’ve been looking forward to sharing with you. A few weeks ago I was booked to do hair and make up for a beautiful Armenian Bride and her bridesmaids in the scenic Fairmont Ajman. It was the first time I had visited the Fairmont in Ajman and I have to say it was beautiful! The view of the sea from the hotel was breathtaking and definitely made up for the 4 hours sleep I had! Below are some pictures I took of the Bride along with a step by step pictorial. I’ll be posting about the bridesmaids soon so keep an eye out! If you have any questions about how I created this look or about the products please leave a comment!
