Bridal Make Up

When bridal make up is concerned there is are so many options to go for, conventionally clients prefer a natural look.

For a more natural look, I do encourage my clients to have something accentuated whether it be the lips or eyes or even skin and contour.

For this look in particular I worked on the skin and winged eyeliner. There are no rules when bridal make up is concerned and for a vintage liner and hair, this particular eye make up compliments ALL eyes, even hooded eyes.

As I have an issue with my mega small eyes I feel comfortable having nude eyeliner in my water line to create the illusion they are larger than what they are.

Gold and Brown Sultry Smoke

Firstly using an SLR camera is such a dream, it picks up everything though; still trying to master lighting. Obviously there is nothing more perect than natural light so please excuse the lack of light for now as I plan to have it rectified in the near future.

For Nora I used the and lorac pro palette and did an Arabian sultry smokey eye of a contrast of matte and shimmer and dark and light. Which is so complimentative to any eye shape. She already has the loveliest features and with contouring I really wanted to bring more warmth to her skin. The highlight of the cheeks matching the shimmer and highlight of her eyes it was a really eye an catching look. This make up can be worn with a nude or white eyeliner or a more dramatic liner at the bottom (because yes I am all about the drama). And seeing as I went slightly strong on the eyes I wanted to create balance in toning down her lush lips with a neutral nudey pink colour, and kept them matte also.
