My sister’s wedding makeup (by me)

Hi everyone,

Well, I was doing the whole wedding series because I was asked, and went a little overboard because I needed some extra information because I was doing my own sister’s makeup on her wedding day. My sister was a pregnant bride (so makeup had to be hypo allergenic and very sunproof) and she didn’t want it very natural or very colourfull. This meant I had the oppertunity to add a POP of colour and made it her own personal bridal look.

But first, what I took with me was:
And for touchups during the day I took:

The makeup was actually pretty simple, I used Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation Primer for an oil free base and added Dior – DiorSkin AirFlash spray foundation for a perfect coverage. I mixed MUFE lift concealer to conceal little imperfections. I then took Harmony and my NEW 138 brush to contour her cheeks.

On her eyes I used Urban Decay – Naked eyeshadow in her brows to darken them a smidge. I then used Urban Decay, Eyeshadow Primer Potion as a base for her eyes and used three MAC Pearlglides from the MAC Liberty of London collectio. The colours I used were undercurrent, petrol blue and designer purple. I started with Designer Purple in the inner eyecorner, then Undercurrent in the middle and Petrol Blue on the outer corner. To set these pearglides (because they do tend to smudge on my sister’s eyes I used Urban Decay – DeLuxe Eyeshadow in Fishnet, Graffiti and MAC pigment in Cornflower. I used MAC Pale Pink Crush Metal on the inner corner.
I didn’t use any colour under her eyes because of the inevatable tears and I used Benefit BadGal lash in the Waterproof version to ensure the mascara would stay.

On her lips is a mixture of L’Oreal lipsticks.

For the party I oomphed up the makeup with Transparent Teal and Reflect Blue (both by MAC).

And for all of you curious people, I was wearing this makeup: with MAC Corner lashes and an ASOS white hat.

And for the party I was sporting a smokey eye:
