If you follow me on twitter or if you remember some of my previous posts you may know that two of my very good friends got married this summer. Apparently I tweeted a lot about weddings in general because klout now thinks I'm influental about them, ha! Anyways, because both of my friends know that I'm a little bit coo coo for makeup they asked me to do their makeup on their wedding day. Gulp! I know how to put makeup on my face but I'm not a makeup artist and I can be a little bit clumsy at times so I admit, I was scared. Luckily I practiced on the brides beforehand and both of them are already naturally gorgeous so I didn't have too hard of a job.
So today I'd like you to meet one of my friends, let's call her A:
First I prepped the skin with the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15, applied Malin+Goetz lip moisturizer on her lips and put some Too Faced Shadow Insurance on her eyelids.
For foundation I used the Bourjois Healthy Mix (I mixed the colours 51 and 54) and I concealed any little blemishes with the Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-2 and used the Clinique Airbrush Concealer in No. 04 under her eyes.
Then I moved to the eyes - all the eyeshadows that I used were from the Urban Decay palette - Sin on the inner half of the lid, Toasted on the outer half of the lid, Smog and Buck in the crease and Darkhorse on top of the Bourjois brown eyeliner on upper and lower lashline. I also added some Virgin on the browbone and then put the Max Factor False Lash Effect (the Waterproof version) on her lashes.
On the cheeks I've used the Becca Beach Tint in Guava, Rouge Bunny Rouge blusher in Habanera, Shiseido Luminizing Satin blush in Carnation on the apples of the cheeks and Rouge Bunny Rouge Highlighting Liquid in Sea of Showers just on the top of her cheekbones.
I lined the lips with the Bourjois lip liner in Framboise Exquise, blended it in with a lip brush and applied the Dior lipstick Rouge Dior in Elegant Pink on her lips.
As a last step I applied the Chanel loose poweder in 25 (Peche Clair), focusing on the t-zone.
The funny thing was that when we were practising we always took our time and we assumed that we would have one hour for makeup but then on the day of the wedding we had very little time but according to her she loved her wedding look the best. The makeup didn't budge at all (from 11am to 5am the next day), we only reapplied the lipstick and powdered once again during the day.
We were both very pleased with the end result and she looked beautiful both in person and in the photos.
