Holiday Makeup Tutorial!

Our amazing limited edition dresses required an equally beautiful lookbook. For this shoot, our team worked with photographer Joshua Allen and our talented makeup artist Deanna Hagan created six stunning looks to compliment each dress.  The designer of each dress had a vision for how they wanted their creation to be styled, and the makeup and hair played a large role in that.
