Bridal Beauty: Soft + Smokey
I loved this makeup! Zara was the sweetest bride! We had so much fun during the makeup trial and on her wedding day in June. Take a look below at what I used to create this look...
This step is almost as important as the makeup itself! Prepping the skin will help create the proper base for your makeup and have it last and look amazing! I prepped the skin with the Shu Uemura Lotion and Moisturizer to start. I then made sure to prime the eye lid, under eye area, face and lips.
For this look we did a darker eye. First, I used a gold cream shadow all over the lid. I then used shadows from the Naked 2 palette to finish the look. I used blackout in the outer corner and slightly into the crease. Then blended busted in the crease and tease slightly above the crease. Pat chopper on the mid lid and blend half baked in the inner corner of eye. I finished by using bootycall to highlight.
Cheeks & Lips
After applying a lightweight foundation, concealer and setting with powder I used the Kevyn Aucoin bronzing veil. I then use the Giorgio Armani sheer blush in shade #10 to give her a rosy glow. For her nude lip I first lined them with the Laura Mercier naked lip pencil. I then used the Rouge D'armani lipstick #102 and finished with the Abigail vanilla crème Buxom gloss.
I layered short, medium and long lashes to get a beautiful full lash. Make sure to buy knot-less lashes to avoid seeing the ends and place them right into your own lashes. Then use your finger tips to gently squeeze them and push them right down at the lash line for the most natural look.
