Bridal Inspired Makeup

Hello Lovely Readers!!

I was inspired by, a wonderful site for wedding ideas and tools to help you plan your special day. I was married last year and I so wish I had known about this site. It has a ton of info even wedding dress ideas. Anyway they asked me to come up with a makeup look inspired by a wedding gown. I was not sponsored nor did I receive anything for this its just some blog love. I was of course thrilled beyond words. They sent me three images and I picked the one that best suited me and my tastes.

I chose this gown because I adore lace. I love the way it looks, I love the way it feels I just really love lace. Its very romantic and elegant. I love how delicate and intricate the neck is. Its kind of a little regal. 

What I came up with. 
I wanted something soft and romantic to complement the softness of the lace. I wanted a slight smoky eye to really make my eyes pop but not take away attention from the details of the dress. I didn't want a dark lip because I wanted to keep it light and subtle. 

For the face I started with a primer and I used Garnier 5 Sec Blur which really blurs my imperfections and makes my makeup last longer.
For foundation I wanted something I knew would last so I picked Revlon Colorstay Whipped. I love this foundation because its full coverage and it stays all day. 
To cover spots and dark circles Maybelline FIT Me Concealer is wonderful. It covers everything and doesn't cake up.
I am a oily face gal so I need something that will keep me matte and The Balm Sexy Mama Translucent powder is perfect. 
For a little bronze glow I used Tarte Bronzer in Park Ave Princess. This bronzer is beautiful and natural looking and the best part its matte and waterproof.
For the cheeks I used a little bit of Physician's Formula Happy Booster in Natural to give me a soft flush. 
I think highlighting is a must and to give me a spotlight glow I used Mary Lou Manizer by The Balm.
And to set everything Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray. This will insure your face is perfect all day. 


For the eyes I started with a primer to keep my shadows from budging and creasing. For this I used the Urban Decay Primer Potion. 
For the shadows I used my LORAC PRO palette which has a special place in my heart because I used it for my wedding day. I first used Cream all over my lid and brow bone. Then I used a mixture of Nude and Champagne just on the lid. For the crease I used Pewter and then some Espresso to deepen up the crease. For liner I used the Deep Purple shadow. 
Then I applied some Rimmel Scandaleyes Rockin Curves Mascara for some volume and lift. 
And of course you need some brows and I used my Anastasia Brow Wiz in Ebony.  

To complete the look I used Milani Pretty Natural lipstick to give my the perfect pink pout. 

I hope y'all enjoyed my post as much as I enjoyed writing it!!

Until next time!
