“I like the natural skin/dewy look so I don’t love foundation—it can look too heavy and noticeable on my skin. I had my own makeup artist, Chanel Cross, and one of the reasons why I chose her is that she does a great ‘natural glam’ look on brides that feels authentic to my personality. I didn’t want my look to be too different than what makeup I normally wear.
She says this about my bridal look: “I used a lot of skin prep to make Cassie’s skin glow on its own. I prepped her skin using a gentle face massage to stimulate a glow and primed her skin using Saie Super Glowy gel to make it radiant without any foundation. I concealed only lightly using the softest brush to gently blur where needed, like under the eyes. I used the Merit Minimalist Complexion stick for this purpose. I did apply a soft-gel blush by Chantecaille which is very translucent to make her skin visible, but it added a healthy hue of rose. I also used Ilia’s balmy lip tint which Cassie already owned and was able to reapply as needed throughout her wedding day. ” – Chanel Cross, makeup artist
I felt amazing! I loved the way I looked and felt glamorous, yet still, like myself. The way I look in photos is great and I’m glad I made the decision not to apply foundation.” – Cassie E., 31 years old, Los Angeles, CA
