Bridal Make-Up, Part Two
Bridal Make-Up, Part Two
Step 1: Liquid eye-liner:
So for your bottom lids, I like to use a liquid eye-liner so that it doesn't get too, you know, messy and it's just not all over the place when you are crying tears of joy. So what I do is I'll use a liquid eye-liner and sometimes you just have to use black if that's the only eye-liner that you have, liquid liner. Or you can use a brown. What I like to do, is I will take it and put it on a little angle brush, and again, I'll put it on right there on the lash line and I'll just thicken it up. Very subtly thicken it up. Just like that. And this is actually the liquid eye-liner, which is really great for those dramatic looks with this marker tip. The felt tip you just knock yourself out, have so much fun with it, but for a bridal look I like to stay away from that. So what I'm doing is I'm just colouring right onto that brush, and making it real subtle. I don't like to create any tails or any ends on here unless specifically requested but typically I like, again, to keep it very very natural and just really defining your eye.
Step 2: The angle brush:
So then you're going to take your angle brush, your flat eye-liner, and go back to your contouring kit, and your going to take that top colour flash, and your just going to add just a little bit to the inner corner. And that's just going to help that liner there fade really gradually into your eyes. So its not just one subtle abrupt stop between colours. It's very, very natural, very subtle. So it's up to you, you know, if you want to darken just a little bit right here you can. Tilt your head back and add just a little bit of color; you can see where your crease is. Just go back and forth very softly, but you can see how the dimension is there, you know, where my crease is. And then you're just going to add a little bit of that light colour on the top and blend. Just go back and forth, lightly getting that colour there. Just like that! And then just put on your waterproof mascara, and your primer, and you're pretty much good to go with your eyes. It's very, very natural, very simple, just make sure you pay attention to the little details like the bottom eye-liner and the top eye-liner.
Step 3: The false lashes:
What you do is you're going to need this line when you put on your false lashes, so that it really just flares and it's nice fluttery lashes but it's very natural at the same time. Now when applying your false eyelashes, remember to push them in just a little bit and leave an opening right here and add a little mascara to your natural lashes so that your natural lashes will be the last lashes at the end of your eye and that will give it a more natural look. And then remember to press both lashes up at the end for the best results. And remember to go really slow and take your time when adding mascara to the bottom lashes, you really want to stretch those out. My favorite lashes that are really natural are ones that are wispy like this, just up there. And it's really subtle and really light on your lashes and it just looks really fluttery, or some that are like this so they look really natural because they have the larger strands that are clumped together and then the smaller strands that are clumped together. And then I also like these right here. These are very natural and they just work in between your lashes.
Step 4: Stick foundations:
So this is another one that I really like, they look really great in photos, and it just opens and just brightens up your eyes. If you feel like you can still see that line right here where your lashes are, feel free to just add a little bit of shadow just right here on top of it and it will cover up the band. The best kind of bands are clear so that it dries really clear and really natural and it's very, it's like one piece from your regular lashes to your false lashes. My favourite type of foundation for bridal work are
