I have always loved the timeless Mod Retro’s 60’s makeup look; bold strip eyelashes, strong winged out black eyeliner, pale eye shadow with a strong smoky crease, and a pale pink lipstick. This sultry makeup look has been channel by celebrities, models on the runway and now beautiful spring brides. Spring weddings always seem to bring out soft feminine makeup looks for me. I love to work with shades of pale pink on my brides with eye shadows, blushes, and lipsticks.
Bridal Mod, my makeup twist on 60’s Mod for brides, exudes spring with its delicate and ladylike color palette that compliments all brides and destination brides for their wedding. My glamxurious five Bridal Mod pale pink lipstick colors:
- L’OREAL Colour Riche Lipstick *Pink Passion
- Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil *Roman Holiday
- Bobbi Brown Lipstick *Pale Pink No 21
- Vincent Longo Lipstick *Baby Pink
- MAC Viva Glam Lipstick *Gaga
Brandy Gomez-Duplessis is a Celebrity Makeup Artist who currently resides in New York and part time in New Orleans. Brandy is also an L’OREAL Paris Pro Makeup Artist. This New York makeup artist has worked with celebrities like; Golden Globe & Oscar winner Melissa Leo, Kerry Washington, Kim Kardashian, Jordin Sparks, Daphne Zuniga, Edie Falco, and Kathryn Erbe, to name a few. You recently saw her at Sundance Film Festival, Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, NY Fashion Week, NBA All Stars Weekend, and more. You can also keep up with Brandy by reading her personal blog “Inside the Life of a Makeup Artist“, her fashion blog “Black Tie Stiletto” or follow her glamxurious tweets on Twitter.
So in response to a few friends of mine who lovingly say ‘I use social media as if I were in a witness protection program,’ or: ‘Babe, you aren’t tweeting enough!’ (not ‘tweeting enough???) but ultimately:
‘You just put an app in the iTunes store, aren’t you going to blog about it??’
Yup, I think it’s about that time, but I decided to wait until everyone was at happy hour to pop this little nugget up:
Tiny drum roll please: We officially launched the Anti-Bride App yesterday in the iTunes Store, and we are stoked!
Admittedly, I’m not entirely comfortable with self-aggrandizing, (I’ll tweet about anyone else before our app – chalk it up to Catholic school), but I am really happy that:
1. It’s finally finished
2. Apple let it in the store, even though it had too many categories
3. It’s Friday and almost wine-o-clock….
Basically, our app is the blog, downloaded to your iPhone: and it’s free!
Originally, the blog supported the Anti-Bride book series, but over time, I realized that there’s a whole lot of territory to cover outside of W-day (but is still tangential to the wedding world world). As Sr. Editor for Destination I Do Magazine, I love to write about things I think our readers would like to do, from an eat, stay and play perspective, so they can vet the best experiences for themselves. Money’s tight these days, so if someone else can test-drive your overseas adventure for you, all the better!
We love to cover vibrant people: designers, authors, bloggers, chefs, winemakers, musicians, and rabble-rousers. We are interested in trends, movements, and people who stand for something that matters: Katie Martin of Eco-Beautiful Weddings, Jennifer Stein at Destination I Do, Emily Anderson at Good with Style, or Brett Snyder at Cranky Flyer. They fly their flags in different sectors of the Blogosphere, but have distinct and engaging voices that we love…They are influencers and thought leaders because they believe in what they do, and have great ideas on how to do it.
From lifestyle, entertaining, ingenious inventions, sparkly brooches, killer shoes, to twangy guitar bands: its all here, and more…Maybe our blog/ app is not strictly all-wedding, all the time, but it’s a celebration of what we love, channeling our “lust for life,” (to quote Iggy…).
Running a blog is a blast: it’s your thumbprint – a snapshot of your point of view. It’s a great way to connect with like-minded compatriots who share your philosophy, and if you are lucky, sense of humor. It’s also a content beast that needs to be fed every day. Without our team of bloggers (world class experts with wildly successful social communities of their own) I’d be a mad woman. I love them, I rely on them, and I’d be lost at sea without them:
Jennifer Stein: Desto Diva
Brett Snyder: The Cranky Flier
Brandy Gomez Duplessis: Glamogram
Stacy Jill Calvert and Melissa Johns: Two Brides
Autumn Millhouse: Love Vines
Dorothy Polka: Polka Dot Bride
Melissa Comito Aakre: Heavy Petal
Daniel Yaffe: Drink Me
Fleur Bailey: Fleur Adores
Katie Martin: Eco Bride
Ryan Hupfer: Groom with a View
Dr. Mark Savant: Med Wed
Kimberly Aker: Retro Bride
And there would be nothing to download if not for my dear friends, developers and co-pilots at Synappsis.
So if you are so inclined, you can download the app here.
Drop us a line and let us know what you think: bouquets, or brickbats, we’ll take it all! It’s our goal to improve it – we think of it as a grand experiment and adventure, warts and all.
But at the end of the day, we’re damned glad it’s out the door!
