Main Make-up Ingredients: MAC: Apply Strobe Cream – to give the skin radiance, the buff Studio Fix Fluid -( in my experience it’s the longest wearing of MAC’s foundations which makes it ideal for brides) into the skin with a stippling brush (I like the #187). Apply “Shroom” to the inner corners of the eye, “vanilla” under the brow bone, “French Grey” to the crease, “All that glitters” to the ball of the eye and “embark” along the lashline with an angle brush. Fuzz a little extra of embark into the outer edges of the crease. Gently exaggerate the line of the eye with “blacktrack” fluidline. Set the brows with clear brow gel, and then gently fill them in with an angle brush and an eyeshadow like “brun”, gently dust some “strada” (matt) blush under the cheekbone for contour, and dust a little “blushbaby” over the top of the cheek for s fresh glow. Dust over the entire face with Prep+Prime transparent finishing powder and then finish the lips with “Brick” lipliner and “Miss Dish” (satin) lipstick.
Hair How-To: Pull her hair into a loose french roll, fluffing the top and pulling “random strings” loose. Braid loose hair pieces and tuck them into the french twist, pull pieces around the head in organic motions and fasten with two bobby pins in a cross. Set with hairspray.
