Spring wedding season is in full effect, and that means lately I’ve been helping some seriously lovely ladies get glam for their nuptials. On April 11th, I ladies the pleasure of doing bridal makeup for Tyler, one of the sweetest people I know. Tyler and Trevor were married outdoors, at Three Dudes Winery in San Marcos, providing a perfect setting for the gorgeous photos seen in this post. (All photos by Rebekah Fisher.)
Details about this look can be found below!
For Tyler’s bridal look, we went with a rich smokey eye and soft pink lip. I love this style for brides because it’s easy to wear with few to no touch-ups needed, provides a little bit of dramatic glamour, and allows us to use eyeshadow colors customized to complement the wearer’s unique eye color.
All shadows used came from the section of browns and coppers in Sephora’s Color Anthology palette. To combat the effects of perspiration/humidity all over the face, and to really grab the pigments in the eye makeup, we started with Smashbox Photo Finish primer for the whole face and Urban Decay Primer Potion on Tyler’s eyelids.
eyes: copper base color with bronze accents in the crease and blended into the outer edges of the lids, with Buxom black felt pen eyeliner and Ardell lashes
foundation: Sephora oil-free 10 HR perfection foundation in medium 24 honey, set with a light coat of bareMinerals powder foundation in fairly medium
brows: Anastasia Beverly Hills brow duo in caramel (applied with an angled brush just to fill in her natural eyebrow shape)
contour: Kat Von D Shade & Light palette
cheeks: NARS Orgasm blush
lips: Sephora royal rose lip liner + Too Faced Melted long wear liquid lipstick in melted peony + NARS Orgasm gloss
I designed this look to enhance Tyler’s natural beauty, and I think it was a success! The wedding was a blast, an evening filled with love and celebration and spent with amazing people. Thank you so much for letting me be part of your big day, guys!
