This weekend I had the pleasure of doing hair and makeup for a bridal party. The bride wanted sleek donut buns for hair and neutral smokey eyes for makeup. I did the bride’s hair as well as the maid of honor and one of the two bridesmaids as the other one had her hair braided prior to the day. I did makeup for the bride, maid of honor and both bridesmaids. I gave the maid of honor and each bridesmaid a different neutral smokey eye with a nude lip and gave the bride a neutral smokey eye with a bold lip to make her stand out. I also did winged liner on all and applied individual lashes on all but the maid of honor (she had really long lashes) to add some glamour and edge. I pretty much used my RCMA Ko Palette on everyone but had to mix a shade from the Shinto Palette for the maid of honor. Here is a peek behind the scenes.
I applied Ardell medium individual lashes and then did her hair…
I used MAC Satin Taupe, Carbon, Shroom & Soft Brown on her eyes as well as a shade from the Urban Decay Naked Palette, I think it was Hustle
I used La Femme Blush in Sienna as a base on her cheeks and contoured & highlighted with Sleek Contour Kit in Dark and MAC Refined Deeper Bronze Bronzer (discontinued)
On her lips I used MAC Lip Liner in Beet and Lipstick in Heaux (RiRi Hearts MAC)
The maid of honor…
I used Urban Decay Naked Palette on her eyes and layered on the mascara…
I used La Femme blush in Mocha as well as Sleek Contour Kit in Light and Bronzer to highlight & contour her cheeks. The lipstick was her own I just remember it was from Urban Decay.
She had long lashes already so I added Ardell individual lashes in long to make them fuller. I used Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette on her eyes, I believe the base shade is Chopper.
I had to use a little bit of Black Opal Flawless Skin Foundation in Carob in combination with the RCMA since her skin was a little drier. I alo used MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW45 to conceal prior to applying Foundation. On her cheeks I used La Femme Blush in Russet as well as the Sleek Contour Kit in Dark and bronzer to contour & highlight. On her lips I used Milani Color Statement Liner in All Natural and Rimmel Lipstick in Birthday Suit.
Last but not least Bridesmaid #2
I used a combination of Urban Decay Naked 1 & 2 on her eyes and Ardell medium individual lashes
I used La Femme blush in Russet on her cheeks as well as Sleek Contour Kit in Dark and Bronzer to contour & highlight. The lipstick and lipliner was her own, it was MAC Chestnut Liner with one of the Viva Glam Lipsticks.
Everyone loved their looks and it was a beautiful wedding!
