It’s been a while but I wanted to keep up with my bridal makeup practices. I’ve lost track of numbers now; this could be the fourth? This could work for the bride or bridesmaids.
This is a very glowy skin, hazy purple and green smoky eye with a dusty rose lipstick.
To begin, I primed my face using the Laura Mercier Radiance Foundation Primer. This gives a really nice healthy glow to the skin as well as leaving a tacky surface for foundation to stick to.
Next, I mixed two foundations together; the Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint and Body Shop’s Fresh Nude Foundation. I just love how these feel together, and they are both low in SPF so perfect for wedding photos. To conceal any redness and spots I used the Too Faced Born This Way Concealer, blending this in with a damp sponge. I set my base products using the fantastic Dior Diorskin Forever and Ever Loose Setting Powder.
To add some definition and colour, I used the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow. I chiselled out some cheek bones with the bronzer, and then mixed the Highlighter shade with Prosecco Pop from Becca. I have this in a split pan with the blush Amaretto, which I used on my cheeks.
I toned down any texture with a slight bit of the Dior powder again. I did not want this to be a super duper highlighted look! Everything had to give that subtle hint of a glow.
I love mixing my palettes! I think that I inherited this from my Mam. I always remember her putting a sales assistant’s nose out of joint when she said their was about ten different makeup brands on her eyes. Like mother, like daughter!
So firstly, I filled in my brows with a touch of the Benefit Precisely Brows Pencil.
Next, I took the Stila Eyes are the Window: Mind Palette and used the nude shade to prime my lids. I then took the tawny brown (middle third down) and blended this into my crease with a fluffy blending brush. On a smaller crease brush, I took the shade in the bottom right and blended this into the crease. I then took the deep plum shade and blended this out into the outer socket and upwards to the crease.
Next up, I took Charlotte Tilbury’s Rebel Palette and patted the smoke shade into the outer area of my eye. I then took Dior’s Mono Eyeshadow in Front Row and patted this onto the rest of the lid below my crease. Over this I used the enhance shade from Charlotte Tilbury’s Glamour Muse Palette Patting this lightly over both the green and lilac shades on the lid. Taking a fluffy blending brush, I blended out the harsh edges.
I then mimicked this along my lower lash line and added a pop of Prosecco Pop to my inner corner.
To tightline I used the Rodial Smoky Liner Pen and drew this along my lower and upper lash lines. To enhance my upper lashes I used the black shadow from the Body Shop Down to Earth Palette.
To finish off my eyes I added a lot of Charlotte Tilbury’s Full fat Lashes Mascara and Prosecco Pop to my Brow Bone.
For lips, as the eyes were quite colourful, I kept the lips quite neutral.
To line the lips I used Urban Decay’s Glide on Liner in Ex-Girlfriend, covering the entire lip. For lipstick I used Bobbi Brown’s Lip Colour in Tulle. Finally, I used a touch of Nars’ Baby Doll lip gloss in the centre of the lip.
And this completed the bridal look. Which has been your favourite so far?
Any other suggestions?
Have a lovely day guys.
