Blushing Bride

Hi Everyone,

My Best Friends Emily and Ben got married on the 29th April, and I had the pleasure of making up the Bride on her special day.

Me on the left and the gorgeous bride Emily on the right!

Picture of myself, showing my recreated look!

And again...

Annnnnndddd last one promise!
Please read below for an in depth list on what products I used and how I applied these on Emily for her wedding day-

Chanel Prolumiere foundation in the shade number 30, applied with a Sigma F80 brush.
MAC NC35 studio finish concealer around the corners of her nose and mouth area, applied using a Sephora Professional brush (much like the MAC 224)
MAC NW25 under the eyes applied using a Sephora Professional brush (much like the MAC 224)
MAC cream colour base (ccb) in the shade Pearl. I applied this using my ring finger to the tops of her cheek bones, down the bridge of her nose, cupids bow ad directly above the beginning of her eyebrows and brow bones.
MAC blush creme in the colour lady blush onto the outer apples of the cheeks blend up onto the check bone. I apply this I used a MAC 187 brush.
MAC Prep and Prime finishing powder was used to set the make up and provide longevity using a Louise Young powder/ blush brush.
MAC Harmony Contour powder applied under the cheekbones, jaw line and temples using a MAC 138 tapered face brush.
MAC Melba Blush on top of the MAC blush creme to set the cheek colour again using MAC 138.
Dior Amber Diamond Highlighter was then used on the tops of her cheekbones using the MAC 138 to set the MAC ccb. 

MAC Painterly paint pot applied from roots to brow bone to act as a e/s primer. 
MAC e/s Patina was applied all over the lid (MAC 227)
MAC Charcoal brown was run through the eyebrows to add definition and also placed in the crease and along the lash line (MAC 266, Louise Young LY38B)
MAC Stubborn brown powerpoint pencil was applied to the waterline and also the upper lashline.
No mascara or false lashes were applied as the Bride already had eyelash extensions applied the day prior to her wedding. 
Benefits eye bright was applied and blended along the brow bone and also the inner corner of the eye to add a brightness.

The brides lips were lined with MAC subculture to add definition and provide a long lasting tint to the lips.
Plink! was applied all over the lips and Patisserie over top as Emily felt on the day that the lips were to light next to her white dress.

To finish off I set everything with MAC fix+.

Anyone else getting married soon???
