By Labisi Folawiyo (head makeup artist):

This shoot became an idea in my head after having discussions with prospective bridal clients for the year and how the modern day bride is rebelling against the definition of a ‘pretty bride’.. Nowadays I hear ‘smokey’, ‘bold lip’, ‘fresh’! Just anything asides the traditional ‘soft’ bridal makeup. So I got a team together and created a mini look book, where whatever kind of bride you are (traditional, bold or in between)- you can get inspired and perhaps try something new . So enjoy.!”
