“The Cleveland bride is the quintessential classic, American beauty,” said Ashley Matho, professional makeup artist and owner of Ashley Matho On Location Makeup Artistry. “She is practical but loves quality and classic style. She chooses a classic, vintage-style dress, she wears her grandmother's earrings and her hair is simple yet elegant. I get a lot of classic eye requests that feature a classic slight contour, gel liner, natural looking false lashes and of course, flawless, natural looking skin. With the harsh lake effect climate, Cleveland brides need to prep their skin months in advance so that they can make sure they have hydrated skin and soft smooth lips.”
