Bridal Makeup Tutorial

I had a client a little bit ago that doesn’t ever wear makeup. How would it be? Her skin was flawless, eyes were beautiful and she has naturally pink lips. However, for her wedding, she wanted to accentuate her already flawless look. She was super concerned with contouring because she thought it would make her look too done up. I assured her that I would make her look beautiful, yet natural. DSC_0008

Step 1: I started with a light contour. I used Gerda Spillmann Bronze Special Bio Fond Foundation. I love the natural bronze that it gives. I shaded under her cheekbones and just a little under her bottom lip. 

Tip: Pay attention to where the light naturally highlights your features and what is naturally shaded. 

Step 2: I highlighted under her eyes (in a v-shape), bridge of her nose, a triangle on the forehead (just above the nose), the tip of her nose and her chin. I used Gerda Spillmann HighlighterDSC_0012 Bio Fond Foundation. 

Step 3: I blended all the contouring together with a beauty blender and her color of foundation. I used Gerda Spillmann Bio Fond Foundation in Top Chic (she has a very natural, beautiful tan. Top Chic matched perfect).

Step 4: I used the Chubby Eye Pencil in blizzard from Crown Brush just on top of her lid. This will help keep your eyes appearing bright and open (great technique for those late nights when you really are tired, or for any other time really). I also used it as a highlighter under the arch of her eyebrows.DSC_0019

Step 5: I used the 28 Color Neutral Eye Palette from Crown Brush. I deepened her crease with a neutral brown color and I used the “Round Tapered Crease” brush and then the “Pro Blender Crease” brush to sweep the color up and out a little bit.

Step 6: Using the same color palette, I lined her eyes with black using the “Silicone Angle Liner.” Using powder gives you a DSC_0027softer look than a pencil, gel or liquid liner.

Step 7: Darken your eyebrows. For a natural look, I used “Dark Blonde” Eyebrow Mousse from Blinc.

Step 8: False Lashes. I know you think that these are not natural, but you can actually find some really natural looking ones. They will open your eyes and make DSC_0028them stand out even more. When you place the glue onto the lashes, allow it to become tacky to the touch before applying. This will make them easier to place

Step 9: Mascara to blend in your real lashes to the falsies.

Step 10: DSC_0032Blush! Apply to the apples of your cheeks. When you are looking straight into the mirror, the blush application should not go past your pupils towards your nose. Then sweep it up to your hairline. I really don’t have a reason for why blush is one of my last steps. It just happens.  

Step 11. I love a good lip stain on a bride. She can kiss and not leave any marks on her new husband and not worry about having to reapply. I wanted a soft pink look, so I used “Infinite Rose” from the Sephora Collection. DSC_0039
