Nadyia is one of the many beautiful woman I worked on as a model to build both our modeling/beauty portfolio.  Nadyia wedded her husband Abhik on July 2nd, and I took part of their special wedding weekend as her hairstylist and makeup artist.  The two day Indian wedding was beautiful, so was the bride.  Nadyia wanted a traditional Indian wedding makeup look, and a lot of volume in her hair.  It was a very hot day for Minnessota!  So I made sure the makeup was water resistant and/or waterproof to make it melt-free.  I applied an eyebase prior to the eyeshadow so it would insure the wear of it.  Then came the smugde-proof water resistant eyeliner with the water resistant mascara!  Oh, and we made sure that the lipcolor did move any further than just her lips by using a long-wear lipcolor with a lipcolor sealer.  The last step for the makeup application was the makeup sealer spray, which refreshed her skin and sealed the makeup.  Nadyia has a lot of hair, so I just curled it and pulled it up so she would not have to worry about her thick hair falling her face on her hot summer wedding day.  I made sure to spray humidity resistant hairspray to finish the look.  The beautiful photos were taken by Laura Ivanova, who I have worked with in the past in my friend's wedding.  You can check out more beautiful photos, here is a link to Laura's blog,
