I did makeup for a wedding party this weekend and the bride was amazing, so laid back and easy to work with. She explained that she wanted a very natural look as she doesn’t usually wear much makeup, however she did want some bling and asked if I had rhinestones. I told her nope, no rhinestones but I do have glitter… and she said yes glitter, lot’s of glitter… every time I blink all I want everyone to see is glitter. In my head I’m thinking oh yes I got this and gave her exactly what she wanted. Take a look behind the scenes…
The bride’s finished look
I gave the bride a light glitter cut crease using Lit Cosmetics Glitter in Cher applied with Lit’s Clearly Liquid Glitter Base over Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 HR Eyeshadow in Tough As Taupe all over the lid. I used MAC Soft Brown Eyeshadow on the crease and Shroom to highlight the brow bone. I finished off the eyes with black creme eyeliner on the upper lash line to create a winged eye, Jordana 12HR Made To Last Eyeliner Pencil in Charcoal Definition on the waterline and Ardell Demi Wispies Lashes.
I moisturized her face with Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentrate and primed with L’oreal Magic Perfecting Base Primer. I used a combination of my Temptu Concealer Wheel and Graftobian HD Glamour Creme Correcter Palette to conceal under her eyes and Black Opal Even True Flawless Skin Liquid Makeup in Heavenly Honey buffed into the skin to create an airbrushed finish. I set under the eyes with Ben Nye Banana Powder and the entire face with Ben Nye Neutral Set.
I applied La Femme Blush in Amber (I believe) on her cheeks. She wanted a bronze glow so I used the highlighter in my Sleek Face Form Kit to highlight her cheekbones and the bronzer on her t-zone, chin and wherever the sun hits. I set everything with Model in a Bottle Setting Spray for Sensitive Skin.
I lined the Lips with Milani Color Statement Lip Pencil in All Natural. She chose her lipstick in advance, I believe it was MAC Pro Longwear Lip Creme in Overtime.
The bride was extremely happy with the finished look and she looked gorgeous. Reminds me of Sanaa Lathan.
The bride’s sister and Matron of Honor knew exactly what she wanted and had most of the colors and products that she wanted to use in her own collection, including a custom blend foundation. She wanted smokey green eyes with hints of gold and blue or purple eyeliner to bring out the colors in her dress. I do know that she had two different Urban Decay Eyeshadow Palettes and a 24/7 Glide On Pencil, Benefit lashes, possibly Prescriptives Foundation and a Cargo Blush & Bronzer (?) She filled in her own brows using her Anastasia Brow Genius Kit as she knew exactly how she wanted them. I am not sure what’s on her lips.
I used Urban Decay Eyshadow in Half Baked from my Naked Palette on the inner corner of the lid and Black Out to smoke out the outer corner and crease. I blended with MAC Soft Brown Eyeshadow. I used black creme eyeliner to give her a winged eye and on the waterline I used Jordana 12HR Made To Last Eyeshadow Pencil in Aqua Last, inner corner is topped with her Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eyeliner Pencil in possibly Covet (?)
I moisturized her skin with the Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentrate and primed with L’oreal Magic Perfecting Base Primer. I concealed under her eyes with my Temptu Concealer Wheel and used a foundation from my RCMA Kho Palette to cover the dark spots on her jawline and chin. I then topped it with her custom blend foundation and buffed it in with a flat top brush to create a natural finish. I set under the eye with Ben Nye Banana Powder and the entire face with Ben Nye Neutral Set. I then set everything with Model in a Bottle Setting Spray for Sensitive Skin. She loved, loved, loved her finished look.
I also did the makeup for the Mother of the Bride but unfortunately wasn’t able to get pics since it was so hectic. Hopefully I can snag some later. I really enjoyed working with this group and everyone was happy with their looks.
