Spring Bridal Makeup

The warmer weather here in Salt Lake is getting me excited for spring and summer! Since most brides would rather have the flowers, without the “April showers” (i’m such a poet) let’s call this look the springtime-with-summer-on-the-horizon-bridal-look ūüėé

The details

Step 1 Apply MAC Cranberry eyeshadow from lash line to crease using MAC Fluff Brush 213.

Step 2 Darken outer corner with MAC Embark using MAC Mini Shader Brush 228.

Step 3 Apply MAC Amber Lights to crease using MAC Fluff Brush 213 (same brush as step 1) and to lower lash line using MAC Mini Shader Brush 228 (same brush as step 2.)

Step 4 Add lashes, mascara, and a nude eyeliner. 

A few things, the flares I used for her lashes are twice as full as the typical individual flares from Ardell, therefore, I didn’t feel like she needed a dark eyeliner on top because her eyes were already defined by the lashes. Plus, the dark eyeshadow dupes as a liner.

Her lip color is Lancome lip liner in Charme and Dior Gloss 257 Venus.  Her blush is Chanel Rose Bronze. 

For brides, waterproof mascara is often a good idea, just in case.

Also, to follow up on my post about wavy curly hair texture,¬†I tried the¬†whipped creme mousse¬†from Sebastian. I like it! It’s awesome if you do not want any crunch to your hair. I’d say it’s like 2/3 mousse with a little hold and 1/3 super light weight leave in conditioner. For something with a little bit more texture or hold, I love the Kenra¬†mousse, and that link takes you to a sample size so you can try it out before making the big jump. Plus I’m kind of a fan of the smaller bottle for portability reasons too.

Wavy hair kind of makes me think of summer too…beachy waves….beach…..

Is it weird that now I kind of want a Big Stick popsicle?!
Oh the memories…big sticks and roller blading. Anyone know if those popsicles still exist?!

    I love this eyeshadow look. could you wear it with any color? Like a pink shirt. Or the copper would clash?

      I think it would look pretty! It would slightly depend on the shade of pink but I think you’re safe!

    This look is gorgeous! May I ask what foundation you used on this shoot? Her skin is absolutely radiant!
