Bridal Spray Tans, Airbrush Makeup & Updos in Cross Lake MN


Dani was married at Manhattan Beach Lodge in Crosslake MN this spring. Again so thankful the weather smiled upon them….this Minnesota weather can get crazy sometimes:)

Our bride wore her hair in a classic romantic updo and like most brides who come to us she wanted a very natural makeup look with her eyes played up a bit. Her bridal spray tan was perfect for her, she desired a light natural glow and that is exactly what she got:)

We are so thankful to the brides who have entrusted us with the best day of their lives….

Remember we have bridal teams located in Grand Rapids MN, Mpls, Duluth, Cross Lake and we travel to St. Cloud, Bemidji, Walker MN

There is nothing like a wedding at The NP Event Center in Brainerd MN. It’s romance and industrial wrapped up in one amazing place for  the two to become one. Dr. Katie was such a delight. She wanted natural makeup and a romantic 1/2 updo.

Enjoy looking at the pictures from Pixelposey.

Why Have a Hair and Makeup Trial?

1521608_694474647237588_1964773226_nYour hair and makeup trial is a very important part of planning for your wedding day. As a hairstylist with Captivating Beauty I look forward to this time with the bride getting to know a little more about her and what she likes.

Sometimes a person doesn’t know exactly what they are looking for and this time can be used communicating and discovering. It’s always good for the bride to explore ideas with a professional who can help them find the look that’s just right for them and compliments their face shape, skin tone and dress the best way possible.

Communication is key, just be sure to be honest and upfront with your stylist about any changes that would need to be made in order to get it spot on.

After all that is the purpose of the trial run!

Most importantly make sure that you choose something that you are comfortable with and makes you feel like yourself. A trial run gives your stylist and chance to work with your hair and skin and gives you the opportunity to wear the look and try it out before the main event. It is always a good idea!!!
