Bridal Beauty: Smokey Eye + Berry Lips

Get This Look




To start I used my favourite Laura Mercier Primer then followed with the Luminous Silk foundation.  Before setting with a translucent powder I contoured and highlighted with the Hourglass Illume Creme to Powder Bronzer Duo, Shade - Bronze Light.  To give the cheeks a beautiful flushed look I then applied The Lighting Blush, Shade - Radiant Magenta.  To perfect this look I finished with Hourglass's signature Ambient Lighting Powder.

Eyes & Lips

For this soft purple smokey eye, I dusted on the Shu Uemura ME 785 purple shadow all over the eyelid.  I then used a matte black shadow, Shade - Noir to darken the outer corner of the eye.  I highlighted under the brow bone and the inner corner of the eye with a Laura Mercier Shadow, Shade - Stellar.  I lined the lips with Laura's Lip Liner, Shade - Plumberry, then applied the weightless lip colour, Shade - Myth.  Finish with a clear gloss for a bit of shine!
