This bridal shoot gives you the inside secrets to create a soft pink natural classic version of you.
It all starts with the ultimate base.
Foundation always looks more natural on clear, freshly moisturised skin. I always use a moisturiser with a SPF15 - higher if the bride is getting married abroad.
Smooth on a primer as this will even out your skin tone and will help your makeup last longer.
On this shoot i used a liquid foundation with light-reflecting particles, which is idea for brides as it creates gorgeous luminous skin.
Concealer is then applied where needed.
powder maximises the staying power of the makeup by setting your base and controlling the shine.
The ultimate brow is so important to frame your face and eyes.
I draw the ideal shape using shadow, then tweeze both brows alternately. As a quick guide, your eyebrows should start in line with your eyes and the highest point of the arch should be above the outer edge of your iris. This should end where an imaginary line would meet from the side of your nose diagonally to the outer corner of your eye and upwards. i used an eyebrow powder to then fill in any gaps and to add definition.
For this shoot I wanted to keep the eye makeup as natural as possible, whilst making the eyes the focal point. I used gold/pink undertones and blended the colour to the outer corners. Liquid liner was then added which adds definition to the upper layers.
I applied individual false eyelashes to all the models on this shoot - they make such a difference to your eyes. Apply them using tweezers no further along than two-thirds from the outer edge.
Lip were kept natural l like to use a cream blush - this way the cheeks and lips are the same colour.
