Luminous Waves Tutorial

We love a natural bride makeup style here and  I am so excited for today’s post which bring together Polka Dot vendors to create gorgeous tutorials you can use on your wedding day, or for your own special occasion.

Today we’re starting right at the beginning with a gorgeous luminous waves tutorial. This look is a beautiful one for a bride who wants a natural, relaxed style with a touch of glamour and so easy to do.

The gorgeous Katherine Eleyce (Ms Filigree) pulled together this shoot with photographer,  Captured By Pavel, hair & makeup artist Brea Mulder Beaute and model Sarah G at Sydney’s Beachside Dojo. Sarah wears a stunning lace gown from Wendy Makin with jewels from Glamadonna and a sparkling hairpiece by Bride La Boheme.

Brea Mulder Beaute worked her magic on Sarah’s hair and makeup and today she is sharing the step by step instructions for creating it yourself (along with with exact products used below!).

Step One

Lightly spray hair with thermal heat protectant and comb through.

Step Two

Section hair from ear to ear & secure with clips.

Step Three

Using the medium barrel H2Dx5 curling wand, and starting from the nape of the neck take a 1.5 inch section and wrap around the wand in a backward direction, away from the face.

Step Four

Without allowing the curled section to unravel, gently remove curling wand and secure curl to the scalp with pins.

Step Five

Repeat on all sections.

Step Six

Lightly spray with light hold hairspray and allow the curl sections to completely cool for a long lasting, luminous finish.

Step Seven

Once cool, carefully remove all curl sections.

Step Eight

Using a wide tooth comb, gently comb through the hair in a downwards direction.

Step Nine

Finish with a light application of shine serum, followed by light/ medium hold finishing spray.
