About Vivian Infantino / organic beauty
Bridal makeup is Beauty makeup.
What that means is you (and your makeup) should be flawless - up close and personal - and in photographs. You should be able to transition from differing lighting conditions and times of day into an evening celebration (if that's what you've planned). How will you achieve a "look" that really is about being your most beautiful self?
Your choice of makeup artist (as well as hair stylist) will help determine just how flawless you are in person and in probably the most beautiful photos of your life. You CAN have editorial quality makeup, hair, styling, which can be photographed from any angle, in formal photos or in a photojournalistic style. It is my opinion that your last photo of the day should be as gorgeous as your first!
If your choice of photographer was one of the first decisions you made, because the visual story of your wedding day is what you want to capture from the first moment to the last, then I invite you to choose your makeup artist and your hair stylist next. Choose them carefully. Read their bios. See where and how they've worked. And talk to them, so you know that you are on the same page about your personal beauty and style for your wedding day.
Here's what I can share with you about my past professional life, and why I bring such a depth of knowledge to my wedding work, which I love!
Based in Milan, Italy, for 23 years, I worked in the fashion/beauty industry as a runway, photographic and collection fittings model for 12 years and more recently as a fashion consultant. Italian designers for whom I worked included Armani, Etro, Missoni, Moschino, Versace, as well as international designers Issey Miyake, Rae Kawakubu, Thierry Mugler & Emmanuel Ungaro. My current editorial credits include Vanity Fair, ELLE, Martha Stewart Living, People, and O Magazine.
And I have worked with and continue to work a "corporate" level with Tata Harper & Dr. Hauschka.
Asked to present on fashion/beauty & identity at W.I.N. - the annual Women’s International Networking conference, I defer to my background and training in Italy with Diego Della Palma/Makeup Studio, Romualdo Priore/Beauty Contact, Aldo Coppola/Coppola & Stefano Anselmo/Making Beauty Academy. U.S. professional affiliations are with The Powder Group and Zenobia Agency. I served from 2007-2012 as Health & Beauty Chair for the Vermont Association of Wedding Professionals (VAWP) and continue to be an active supporter in this incredible wedding destination state.
Freelance makeup artist, bridal makeup artist, fashion consultant and stylist, with locations in Vermont , Florida and North Carolina, I specialize in on-location makeup and styling services. I work with a versatile selection of pro and consumer makeup products including holistic and professional brands.
