The Tahitian Princess
Just imagine your wedding at a swanky beach resort somewhere exotic! The flowers blooming all around, your loved ones happy and excited and your groom eagerly anticipating your arrival – the Tahitian Princess bridal look is effortlessly stunning from the free-flowing waves of the hair to the fresh-faced effect of the natural tones of the makeup. Lovely!

The Bombshell
This is a major beauty trend look for 2013 for bold and beautiful brides! We can totally imagine “the Bombshell” bridal look paired with a mermaid silhouette wedding gown which accentuates the bride’s curves in all the right places. The birdcage veil is the perfect piece to complete this look.

Smokey Siren
Let us set the scene, an evening wedding in a stunning venue – groomsmen in tuxedos, bridesmaids in evening gowns – the groom looking dapper and the bride in bridal couture! We love how the low-bun bridal hairdo complements this look and let’s not forget the classic tulle veil perfectly tucked in. The Smokey Siren bride is simply modern and glamorous.

    • All about Nigeria

      February 27, 2013 at 12:54 pm

      Nooooooo! It’s probably the hair that’s not bridal enough but the makeup is mwaaahhhh!!!!!!!!!!!! simple and nice!

    • Funke

      February 27, 2013 at 1:22 pm

      I agree. A Naija bride won’t appreciate that hairstyle, probably someone from the Cartibbeans will. I love it though, very different.

    • Noms

      February 27, 2013 at 2:57 pm

      you are right. The makeup is lovely but i don’t feel d hair but it suits it name though cos most of their wedding are sort of casual,abi?

    • Rosy

      February 28, 2013 at 11:37 am

      I love the Tahitian make-up!!! Its so subtle and classy!!! The hair for me is a no no.

  31. Ross

    February 27, 2013 at 9:43 pm

    Thats what make up is all about ….any time u look at Lagos wedding they all look de same with too much gold colour on they eyes

  32. Neni Stone

    February 27, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    Lovely makeup except Pretty Pink. The Pretty in Pink look is too…pink. If you’re to use pink all over the face, you should use different shades of pink. A light champagne pink shadow would have been fantastic.

  33. Curious

    February 27, 2013 at 10:19 pm

    What I want to know is who is the model? She hella fine men! Dang!

  34. oresiaa

    February 27, 2013 at 10:22 pm

      Honestly I can’t choose one!!!they are all soooooooo pretty!!!

  36. shanday

    February 27, 2013 at 11:07 pm

    The tahitian one is also very nice if you are a fan of the more natural look. I see that working for an outdoor beachside wedding. This makeup artist is on point. Plus you have to give it up to the photography as well. It was well done. quality stuff

  37. Ada

    February 27, 2013 at 11:48 pm

    Definitely 40’s chic for me….love ittt

  52. Aibee

    February 28, 2013 at 11:11 am

    Bombshell for my white wedding. It’s exactly the look I have in my head because I’d also be using a birdcage veil which hides the eyes and so the lips should pop. For the traditional wedding, its either pretty in pink or royal belle.

  53. Nkem

    February 28, 2013 at 11:17 am

    this is so beautiful, all of them, am definitely stealing from here for my bridal makeup

    the smoking siren and the royal belle are my favorite. Too bad you cant choose two, i chose the royal belle tho. she looked like an african queen in that one.


    February 28, 2013 at 6:52 pm

  68. ktemi

    March 1, 2013 at 11:45 pm

    I personally felt a bit let down by the make-up in general…….expected much better from Kemi-Kings…for Kemi-Kings standard, it looks a little plain

    Some make up artist do not have the qualities it takes to be a make up artist
