Pretty Fun: A Bright and Happy Hens Makeup Party Styled Shoot by A2i Makeup

This pretty and happy styled shoot is full of confetti, flamingo balloons, bright flowers, rose, and giggles! Dreamt up by A2i Makeup, this shoot inspires you to hold your own makeup hens party with your bridesmaid squad.

Today’s styled shoot puts a big smile on our faces! It’s so bright, happy, and unabashedly girly that we could squeal! Dreamed up by A2i Makeup, a beauty venture founded by Candy T., the shoot presents a fun makeup hens party for a bride and her bridesmaids. In a cosy space beautifully decorated with bright flowers, huge pink flamingo balloons, pretty watercolours, and colourful confetti, the girls picked up beauty tips from A2i Makeup’s artists, exchanged bridesmaid gifts, enjoyed funfetti cupcakes, and celebrated their dear friend’s journey from Miss to Mrs.

The inspiration for a makeup hens party stemmed from A2i Makeup’s beauty workshops. A team of passionate artists headed by Candy T., A2i Makeup offers personal and professional beauty workshops that teach beginners as well as aspiring makeup artists how to create natural and beautiful looks for work or play. Focusing on beauty as a whole, the workshops discuss skincare as well as application techniques and beauty products, and the small class sizes allow students to learn hands-on.

Wanting to create a special experience for brides and their bridesmaids, the team came up with the idea of a personalised makeup party. “We wanted to host a very fun makeup workshop for a bride-to-be and her bridal party,” shares the A2i Makeup team. “We thought that it would be nice for the bridesmaids to learn some professional makeup tips, from our makeup trainer Tracy, and bring home some real skills that they can use to prepare themselves on the wedding day.”

The styled shoot was set in A2i Makeup’s brightly lit, cosy studio, and styled by Med Kärlek Inc. with fun pink balloons, lush flowers in happy colours by Florals by Benita, and personalised watercolour place cards by Art and Wanders. The table and chairs were provided by TT Productions.

“I’ve known some of these girls longer than others, but they all played a very important role at different times in my life!” shares bride Felicia. “The makeup hens party was a good opportunity for all of them to come together as each and every bridesmaid means a lot to me in their own unique ways.” The party was a pretty preview of the morning of the wedding day, where the bride and her bridal party gather to get ready together. Sharing each other’s makeup, dressing up, and primping together is a special experience that is heightened with the excitement of the big day, when one of your best friends gets married! As the photos by Lightedpixels Photography show, there is something really special about dolling up together with your BFFs. “Memories fade, but a good picture along with a moment that’s precious will last a lifetime,” says Felicia.

For the party, the girls were dressed by Wild Peonies. They exchanged lovely bridesmaid gifts of jewellery from Anidea J. and the bridesmaid beauty box from Shopbox. To sweeten the celebrations, there was cake and rosé!

Brides who also want a fun beauty experience with their squad can customise a makeup party with A2i Makeup according to their preferences and budget. “We reckon that coupled with nice food, cocktails, and lots of gossip, it would make an unusually fun hens party idea!” says the team.
