On the most photographed day of your life...you want to shine like a star...and feel like the most beautiful woman in the world!
I've done wedding makeup for years...and the look I'm going to show you, that I did on my friend Bethanie...is the look that every woman requests:
a nude shimmery eye that is smokey at the same time....at first I thought, "you can't do a nude, shimmery eye...and a smokey eye...they are two different looks...then I started doing this look I created... "Bombshell Bride" or "Knock-Out Prom" makeup look!
It's a glammed up look, so you will feel like you are the most beautiful woman in the world...yet not like you have drag make-up on (don't get me wrong, I love some drag makeup skills, just not for your wedding day or prom)...ha ha ha
Make-Up for photos is always a little more done up than on a normal day. WHY?
In photos, cameras and certain lighting will accentuate any redness, discoloration, or uneven-ness in your skin.
*Also, photographic lighting or flashes, will really wash you out, making any color, blush, eyeshadow, etc....look much lighter, or non-existent...like you didn't even put anything on.
So , not every day, but for special events like this...you can apply a little more foundation and concealer than normal...and watch how perfect you'll look in pictures!
MAKE-UP TRICK:TO MAKE YOUR MAKEUP STAY LOOKING PERFECT YOU NEED TO USE AN AMAZING FINISHING SPRAY.
FINISHING SPRAYS WILL.... keep your make-up perfectly in place for hours and hours...and will also make your entire makeup application waterproof (cry-proof is important on wedding day!
