If you ever wondered how to look on your wedding day, wonder no more! The latest of Shelbey’s tutorials deals exactly with that question, the wedding day makeup. She suggests going for the smokey eye. In addition, I will give you the basic steps introduced in this tutorial.
To begin with, moisturize and prime your face. Apply the foundation that suits you best. She is using the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation, and she swears by it. Apparently, the Make Up For Ever products photograph really well, specifically the foundation and the concealer.
Use concealer to cover the dark circles under your eyes and any irregularities that you feel worth covering.
Set the foundation and the concealer using translucent powder and a brush.
Define and accentuate your facial features by contouring them. Shelbey is using the NARS Contour Blush in the shade Paloma. For bronzer, she goes with the BareMinerals Warmth All Over Face color. Proceed by applying blush.
Highlight the cheek bones and the T-zone.
Going over to the eyes, we will use the same product that we used as a bronzer, and that is the BareMinerals Warmth. We are going to use it as a transitioning color. We are going to use a mix of two darker shades in the Clinique Morning Java Palette and blend them real well.
The whole point of this look is for the color to be buffed into the eye, making it look as it’s almost melted into your skin. Push hard on the shadows and make sure it’s blended well.
Use a creamy eye shadow to make the inner portion of your lid pop! Miss Shelbey is using the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in the Sugar Frost shade.
Before applying the fake lashes, create a little base around the lash line. Use a flat defining brush and apply a darker shade on the lash line. Proceed with mascara and glue on your lashes!
Keep the lip neutral. Miss Ashburn is using the IT Cosmetics YLBB Lip Liner in Buff Nude shade and on top of that go in with the Too Faced La Creme Lipstick in Naked Dolly shade.
