Bridal Makeup

A friend of mine and I went on a spur of the moment trip recently to get a makeover for her upcoming nuptials.  It went so well that I had to share the makeup choices with everyone. It was truly a classic, beautiful look.  Not over the top, yet special and natural looking at the same time. What every bride would want to look like!!

The makeup artist first used cream shadow in glacier as a base for the eyelids.  A shimmery petal went on the lids with stone, a shimmery greyish brown in the crease.  Bone shadow was used to highlight the brow bone.  Chocolate brown shimmer ink eye liner pulled the look together.  

A fresh looking flush was created with pink sugar blush over the moisturizing balm.  The artist did teach us a really handy trick- brides shouldn't use anything with SPF in it on their wedding day--- it does not photograph well!!!  It creates a sheen with the flash photography.  So while she used the balm on this day as a foundation/base, we will find a foundation without SPF for the big day.

The look was...perfect.  Becky, chime in with the lip color choice- I know it was raspberry something.  It just had the perfect color punch to bring it all together. And if I forgot something or got something wrong, post it in the comments.
