Carly Flint Makeup Artistry Featured

I wanted to follow Lisa's lead and thank Jess from DESTINATION INSPIRATION and Amanda from RUFFLED BLOG for featuring the wedding of Sam and Lauren and the Grace, Audrey and Jane Editorial.

Destination Wedding Lauren & Sam Whistler Canada

Just as the daffodils, tulips and green grass started to appear winter makes one last return to the North East. Everyone is looking forward to sunny days, cool breezes and being able to enjoy spring time. We will have to endure one more day of snow today and tomorrow.
So in winters honor on what is hopefully it’s last visit, today’s feature is a gorgeous winter destination wedding in Whistler, Canada. Lauren and Sam came all the way from Charlotte North Carolina to have a very intimate ceremony at the Pan Pacific Whistler Hotel. They stood in front of a beautiful fire place for their I Do’s and than braved the snow for pictures.
Following the ceremony bride and groom headed to the Araxi Restaurant for a wonderful dinner with just their guests. Very thankful that Lauren and Sam had this beautiful intimate winter ceremony captured by the wonderful Lisa, Michael and Carly from Ophelia Photography.

No matter how we describe this bridal portrait shoot, we can’t possibly compete with the photographer’s chronicle of her quest to capture the delicacy of timeless beauty and tenacious femininity. Lisa of Ophelia Photography used the immutable inspiration of women such as Grace Kelly and Jane Austen to produce, frankly, some of the most magnificent bridal portraits we’ve seen yet!

Audrey, Grace and Jane || A Collective Editorial in Victoria BC

This collective editorial shoot started with a dress purchased last summer from GT Vintage Parlour that was orginally intended to be my wedding dress. I believe however that the true purpose was to fulfil this insprational, awe-inspiring editorial shoot of three amazing women: Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Jane Austen.
As luck would have it Lisa stumbled upon the other two dress at True Value Vintage and from that an idea was born.
"We wanted to create intimate portraiture of uniquely charming iconic women still relevant today. Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Jane Austin are women who taught, by example, what a lady was: a vessel of grace and gravity, ready wit, eldritch charm: women whose greatest discretion as to hide their awareness of splendour". ~Ophelia Photography.

Audrey/Amy~ Effortlessly Chic, stunning eyes and rich dark hair.. Amy was blended to perfection, full dramatic lashes, liner and the perfect lip. Lady Danger red/orange was the perfect contrast with the soft elements and striking features.
Jane/Corrie~ Innocent and timeless, gorgeous, beauty and youth. Blended, soft, clean and defined with a hint of drama in the lash (ok lots of lash but I love lashes). 
**Corrie was extremely sick during this shoot which why there isn't enough of her..she was an industry pro and Tyra herself would have been proud!**
Grace/Me~ Chic, romantic, grace.. Black Gel liner,over lined with Rich browns, golds, highlighted champagnes and whites.. 
I wanted the bottom lash to be a focus with pulled out liner and bottom lashes added for extra fullness in the eye. Johnna from Everlash Studio applied the perfect amount of volume and length to my top lash extensions.

Sam and Lauren's Whistler Wedding

I went to Whistler,BC at the end of February for Sam and Lauren's winter wedding.. This  stunning couple travelled all the way from Charlotte North Carolina with their lovely family. The ceremony was held at Pan Pacific Whistler Hotel.

Lisa had mentioned in her blog post all of the love and gratitude we had felt and received from the entire group but I must reiterate.. I have never felt so much warmth from people I had just met.. but it was if I had known them my entire life.. 

The mamas.. Oh the mamas!! These two amazing women were so excited to get their makeup done and to learn tips and tricks and lashes :). 
As a makeup artist I can't think of a better kind of client then one that is A..Excited and B. wants to learns. 
I am all about making women feel their best by looking their natural best!
As for Lauren wow what a babe!! I did a bit more drama with her that was all inspired by an Eva Longoria updo. 

I hope they don't mind but I HAVE TO share this beautiful letter they wrote me:

Dear Carly,
What can I say? The beauty of my bride was so overwhelming yesterday that I was one tear away from having an emotional breakdown. Her beauty is natural but when she turned that corner to walk down the isle I could have sworn that I was having a dream.
You turned our ladies into supermodels and that made every one's day that much more memorable. The girls couldn't stop talking about how beautiful they felt.
You do amazing work and are a true artist. We are grateful to have you as a friend and that you were able to be a part of our special day!
All of Our Best,
Mr. & Mrs. Fuller!

 I was the lucky one to be apart of your magical day!
