Summer Wedding at St. Mathias Farm in Brainerd

We love these summer wedding photos from Studio North . Our bride was one of the sweetest and was absolutely gorgeous as you can see from her photos.  I met with her last year to talk about On Site Wedding Hair and Makeup.  It’s always so surprising how fast wedding time comes around:) Carissa had the perfect hair which resembles Ginnifer Goodwin from Once Upon a Time…it framed her face so beautiful…we played up her eyes and kept everything else very natural which fit her to a t!

Everything about this wedding venue is beautiful ..St Mathias Farm holds a little bit of my heart since our son was married there also….everything from the barn to the fields laced with wild flowers….perfection!!

On a side note…take a look at their wedding programs….she made them herself…plus she did her own flowers…we were quite impressed!

How To Prep for Wedding Day Hair and Makeup

How To Prep for Wedding Day Hair and Makeup are one of the main questions we commonly hear from brides in the Brainerd Lakes area?

To be well prepared we ask that you come with a button up white shirt and day old hair if possible.

If you need to wash the day of that’s alright just put some mousse or gel in your beautiful locks after you wash to give your hair a little extra holding power. Then make sure you dry your hair completely as this is key in weatherproofing your hair.

For your skin – wash and cleanse with the recommended products leading up to the big day for that glow we all long for. The day of the wedding cleanse your skin only and do it well.

Make sure all of your makeup is removed thoroughly and do not use any products at all on your skin. Our experts will apply what they need to help your look last all day and well into the night.

Make sure your bridesmaids follow the same guidlines

Wedding Hair & Airbrush Makeup at Craguns Resort

WE love what we do…which is On Site Wedding Hair & Airbrush Makeup for our beautiful brides and their wedding party. We love our brides and we love when they leave us a sweet, kind review..The beautiful scenery at Craguns Resort on Gull Lake is breathtaking…We are totally in love with these wedding photos of our bride by Whitney b Photography

“The Captivating-Beauty team was a blast to work with…so happy I stumbled across them for bridal hair/make-up!! Tracy (the owner) is simply amazing… so sweet, accommodating, and not to mention an amazing make-up artist. Melissa was my hair stylist and she was amazing as well. The whole team is fabulous – used them for my whole bridal party’s hair and make-up (which wasn’t small)…they came out to our little cabin bright and early and did their magic. Stuck to the timeline and were a blast to have. I hope to cross paths with Tracy again sometime in the future!”

Yes, bright and early at 6am…we arrived at Craguns to begin our 20 services. We had to be done by 10:30 and we made it…..Leah was so happy….and the outcome…all I can say is our bride was breathtakingly beautiful…so kind and calm…you couldn’t ask for a nicer bride

 

On Site Wedding Hair and Makeup in St. Cloud

We were so happy that Megan our beautiful bride contacted us to provide wedding hair and makeup services last summer for her and her wedding party. Their wedding venue – Rolling Hills Event & Wedding Center in St. Cloud MN – was amazing. Their bridal Suite had such wonderful natural lighting and the grounds were simply gorgeous.

3 of us traveled On Site to perform 15 wedding hair styles and 7 wedding parties makeup….they desired a natural makeup look….but just a little more enhanced and I’d say our team delivered…they were so happy and looked stunning….

We also loved the mother of the bride and she left us such a sweet review!!

“I would recommend this service to all bridal parties! It was so nice to have Tracy and her team come to our venue. As the mom of the bride I was able to sit back and relax and enjoy watching everyone get ready. The team did a fantastic job with hair and make up. They worked quickly yet were able to do the most amazing hair and make up. I was totally unsure what I was going to do with my hair and Missy worked on it for maybe 5-10 minutes and I LOVED IT! Tons of compliments for the whole bridal party. The Bide was of course stunning! They were able to do 15 hair styles and 7 make ups all in the alloted time. Took away all the stress and made it fun. This is one of the best decisions we made when planning the wedding.”

 

Wedding Makeup in Brainerd MN

I thought we should talk a little bit about wedding makeup for brides in central Minnesota. We have been been providing bridal makeup for 5 years in Brainerd, Crosslake, Nisswa, St. Cloud, Duluth and the surrounding areas including the Mpls/St. Paul regions. That is over 600 faces and 130 weddings. Plus we have trainings every year to keep updated on new bridal trends etc..

Why change something that has proven itself over and over again for over 5 years and that includes our bridal foundation.  This is professional foundation that works and it works wonderful for our MN weather. We have utmost confidence in our products because they have stood the test of time and stood up to MN inclement weather..and as you know it can change at any time and will keep you on your toes..that’s the beauty of MN weddings…

Prepping the skin for bridal makeup is everything. We also have used the same primers because they work. It is just as important as the makeup itself if not more important. We use primers based on skin type and condition. One size does not fit all where prepping skin is concerned. The same with toners. We use skin toners that fit the skin type & condition.

If you want your wedding makeup to stay on all day…rest assured..our’s does..it’s been proven…
