Alexandra Grecco: Ethereal Innocence


The sophisticated floral arrangements along the body of the gowns are made to replicate the captivating sense of strolling through elegant flower gardens. Absolute divine perfection with the fuchsia eyes, rosy cheeks, soft loose ringlets, and baby's breath crowns all converged for Alexandra Greeco. These looks making for an ethereal, fairy-tale take on the less-traditional bride.


For extra luminous skin, the models faces were prepped with Make-Up Pro's Boy line Ethereal Youth Cream to moisturize the face. Each model was then prepped with BOY Beauty's Water Drop Primer . Models wore no foundation, only touches of BTS Media Covera e Concealer for a very natural look with the skin. For lighter and medium complexions, the makeup artists used PCOl, PC02, or PC03. For darker complexions, the makeup artists used PC07, PC08, PC09 and PCl0. The makeup artists then followed with BOY Beauty's Matte BOY Loose Powder . good for all complexions.


Each model was given a very natural brow, just filling in gaps with the BTS Contour Brow Pencil in Blonde for lighter brows and Deep Brunette for darker brows. The fuchsia eyes along with a touch on the cheeks and lips were achieved with BOY Beauty's Able Laquer in 'Pretty in Pink,' followed by the BTS No Space Mascara.


"The artists were able to achieve a full blush look by applying this Laquer which is able to do everything," said by Make-Up Pro New York's Chika Chen herself . A touch of the BTS eyeshadow was applied on the brow bone in 1166 for lighter complexions and 1239 for darker complexions.


To create that ethereal look, the makeup artists applied the BTS Prism Highlighter (Fair Complexions: 1, Medium Complexions: 2, Dark Complexions: 3) to make the cheekbones pop. And finally, the look was polished with radiance lips using the BOY Beauty's Able Laquer for the center of the lips with a touch of DDewy Gloss in Champagne Papi and covered with a clear lip gloss to complete the look.
