Last year I had the honor of glamming up a bride named Kim who just happened to be marrying former Major League Baseball player Roberto Alomar. Although the wedding was on a Wednesday once you realize the significance of the date it all made sense. They ended up tying the knot on 12-12-12.
Any Toronto Blue Jays fans would immediately note that ’12’ was Roberto’s number. And currently the #12 banner proudly hangs in the Rogers Centre because the Blue Jays retired that number after Roberto was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
I met with Kim about a month before the date to do a trial on herself and her beautiful 15-year old daughter. For someone marrying a baseball legend you would never know, Kim was super nice and down to earth. She wanted a simple look with fresh looking skin that we could easily transition into more of an evening/glam look for the dinner. The color themes of the wedding were white, black and royal blue. Wedding planner extraordinaire-Melissa Andre transformed the AGO into a winter wonderland for the ceremony and reception. Check out this video to get a glimpse of the fabulous day!
For Kim’s makeup we decided on a palette of cooler toned colors that would compliment this theme. For her eyes I used MAC eyeshadows in Brule, Seedy Pearl, Sketch and Carbon and lined her eyes with Blacktrack Fluidline.
Her glowing skin was created using a combo of MAC’s Select Cover up, Face Atelier‘s Ultra Foundation and Mineralize Skinfinish Natural-also from MAC.
Kim also liked more of a soft lip so we ended up using a lustre lipstick from MAC called Syrup which I mixed with lip balm.
Kim changed her dress for the evening and I bumped up her makeup by adding more of Carbon eyeshadow and strengthening the contours of her face using Rimmel‘s Bronzer in Sun Dance.
I tweeted to Roberto today to say Happy Anniversary to him and Kim and he tweeted back a sweet message:
That tweet made my day!
Thanks Robbie and Kim for letting me be part of your big day. I wish you all the best for years to come!!!
