How To Do Bridal Make-Up
Hi I'm Ava Belle international fashion make-up artist. You can see my work at ava-belle.com.
going to show you some of the tricks of the trade and some of my make-up secrets. Today I'm going to show
you how to do a beautiful bridal look. We're going to keep it really lovely and fresh and dewy, something
quite natural and very glowing skin.
I've already started by perfecting the skin, using a Georgio Armani
foundation. I've taken a gorgeous highlight to the cheekbones. I'm just finishing giving a little bit
of colour and warmth by going in with a cream blush, just blending that up on the apples of the cheeks
Be careful when using a cream blush you want to really blend it so there's no hard edges and
you can also pat the product in with your fingers and use the warmth to melt that cream blush in. Now I'm
to keep the eyes really beautiful, shimmery and fresh. This is going to be a look that's quite on trend at
You can look in any bridal magazine and this is the sort of look that you'll see. It's very
modern, dewy with lots of shimmer. But nothing to frosty, you want to stay away from frost.
Okay I'm going to do a beautiful cover with this lovely champagne glow over the entire eyelid. Just to
give a wash of colour pressing the pigment all over the eyelid and then blending it out with a bigger fluffy
brush. That's going to throw a lot of light into the eyes.
You want the eyes to really sparkle on the big
day and to be bright and beautiful. So going in with our champagne colour it's a beautiful soft shimmery
pigment. You can use any kind of shimmery pigment, nothing frosty, you want to stay away from frost.
And just blend that out with a nice big brush. For this next step I'm going to take Era eye shadow from
Mac and blend that into the socket line to give it a little bit of extra definition. And going into the
socket line, this gives a little bit of extra depth to the eyes.
It makes them appear even bigger, shade
it right on to the brow bone because it's such a light colour it gives that open look to the eyes.
Taking that same medium brown Era again and going in close to the lash line, just edge it right along
the lash line. This gives a little bit of extra depth, you can even go one shade darker along the lash line
to give it a little bit more drama.
Bring it right in close to the lashes, nothing too dark, just want to
it really soft and pretty. Remember it's going to be photographed during the daylight, which is the harshest
light you'll work with. So everything has to be very clean, very precise and very soft.
Next I'm going to groom the eyebrows, just want them to look nice and clean, not to over emphasized.
You want them to just look nice and neat. We're going to just brush the brows, brush them up first then
I like to just use a little bit of eye shadow, a warm brown, this colour is called wedge and just
run it through as an angle brush, tiny little strokes, just to fill in any gaps, you want it to be very,
very soft. Next for the brows just to keep them in place I'm going to over the top of our powder with
a crayon, again this is a very light colour so you want to use it sparingly. It will help hold the hairs
in place all day.
Lastly I'm going to go in to finish up our eye shadow with a beautiful highlighter.
Use the lightest colour and I'm going to take an angle brush just going in to the corners of the eyes,
this is really going to make the eyes pop. I'm going to curl the lashes.
On the wedding day there's likely to be tears so it's best to always, always use a waterproof mascara.
I'm going to finish the eyes by adding some individual false eyelashes. I finished the eyes with individual
false and a bit of white eyeliner on the inside just to brighten up the eyes and really make them sparkle.
Now I'm going to do the lipstick in a pretty shimmery pink
