Natural Bridal Makeup

I thought it about time I did  more natural look.  I’ve gone with a simple bridal look that is also an everyday look.  I’ve tried to prefect my base as much as possible and kept the eyes pretty simple.

Unfortunately I didn’t managed to take photos of all the various steps, but I can show you what I’ve used and you can check out the video below.

Smashbox PhotoFinish primer* all over. Makeup Academy Pro-Base Prime & Conceal palette*, I used the green on any red marks I had on my face, then the salmon colour under my eyes.  For foundation I went with Covergirl outlast stay fabulous – if this is for your wedding, try mac face & body, or another full coverage foundation without spf.  I mixed Nars Radiant Creamy concealer* & mac Pro Longwear to cover any last dots of redness and to help brighten up under my eyes.  I set my face with mac Forever Marilyn Beauty Powder. I used NYX blush in taupe to contour along my cheek bone, chin and outside of my face.   For blush Dior Rosy Glow* to add a soft flush of pinky colour and highlight is Elizabeth Arden Rose Illuminator.   I finished off my face at the very end with Hourglass Ambient Lighting* Powder in Ethereal Light.

Makeup Revolution Focus & Fix eye primer.  Then the peachy shade from Benefit’s Big Beautiful Eyes* palette all over the moving part of my lid, the brown shade next to it in my crease and outer corner of my lid.  Then blended a lot.  The matte brown shade tight along my top lash line and also as an eyebrow powder.  I used Foxy blended from Urban Decay Basics* palette from the crease to my brows.  I set my brows with Collection Colour Lash clear mascara.  Lancome Hypnose volume mascara* on my top & bottom lashes – I’d recommend a waterproof mascara instead for your wedding day.

Lips!  I lined & filled in my lips with Rimmel Exaggerate lip liner* in Eastend Snob, put Dior Addict Lipstick* Windrose mainly in the centre of my lips, using a lip brush to fade it out towards the corners of my mouth.  I topped it off with NYX Gloss in Ballerina Pink in the centre of my lips, patted out with my finger.  Then sprayed my face with Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray*.

Done!  You can add to this however you like, smoking out the eye more, individual lashes, a different lip colour.  The main aim is to perfect the base as much as possible, which I think I’ve mostly managed.  If you’ve any other tips to share with people, please leave them down below in the comments section!  I’m always willing to learn too!

Thanks for reading!
