Today I'm going to be going through a #GetTheLook, the bridal edit, on the gorgeous Emma!
I created a classic soft smokey look - with the help of Emma's gorgeous face!! We went with a deeper lip as this is what Emma was used to wearing and this is something I would recommend to all brides - be sure that you stick somewhat to what you're comfortable with and used to wearing so you feel like the same person on your wedding day!
FYI: This look doesn't just have to be bridal based - if you're a fan of a classic makeup look this is for you.
I've used the Hello Fab Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturiser. This is a really lovely moisturiser that has a nice golden glow to it, it blurs the appearance of pores and imperfections and helps your makeup last longer. You can find this one here.
Following this, I used Benefit Professional Primer. This is a great primer if your skin is a little bit oily. Pop a tiny bit of this onto t-zone to help mattify and prevent shine. This one compliments most skin types and is really easy to apply, a little goes a long way!
For Emma's foundation, I've used the NARS Sheer Glow, which I'm a big fan of! It gives amazing coverage but you can still see your skin. I think this is really important especially in regards to bridal looks as you don't want to feel anything heavy on the skin!
I've used the Sculpted Custom Edition Palette for Emma's bronze, highlight and blush. I really wanted to create a glowing look so used golden and peachy shades from the Custom Edition which were perfect against Emma's skin tone.
Using Medium Bronze and the Sculpted Double Ended Brush I worked this into the cheekbone starting where the cheekbone meets the ear and blending outwards, and also along the hairline and down the sides of the nose.
And for that gorgeous glow I've used Golden Hue Cream Highlight along the tips of the cheekbones, down the centre of the nose and the cupids bow, followed by Golden Glow Powder Highlight in the same areas, using the opposite side of the Double-Ended Brush.
To finish the look I used Sunset Sheen blush - this is one of the three new Sculpted Blushers which is peach/pink in tone but has a lovely glow incorporated into it, bringing the glowing theme right through the makeup look giving an overall dewy finish.
To finish off the face I've used MAC Blot Powder. I love this one for anyone who has some oily areas as it's stronger than translucent keeping it all in place!
I've used the MAC Painterly Pot as a base. This has a really creamy texture and won't budge for the day! Next up I've used the MAC Saddle all over the lid and lightly underneath the eye and worked MAC Brown Down lightly into the edges to give some depth and more of a smokey finish.
For liner, I used the trusty Inglot 77 along the lash line using The Angle brush - as always! Charlotte Tilbury Eye Cheat went on the waterline which really opens up the eyes too. I finished the eyes with lashes the full way across!
For the lips, I used the Bare lip liner from the Nude Lip Quad all over the lips. If you're nervous of lip liner - don't be!! It's almost like a primer for the lips keeping your colour in place and helping the staying power of it. I popped Emma's own Bobbi Brown Cocao lipstick on top. This was beautiful on her and some might consider it even slightly daring for bridal.... love it!
Just look at how beautiful she looks :)
Her hair was by the gorgeous Aisling Hammill - we all had a great morning together with Emma's beautiful family!
Thanks so much for reading, I hope you loved this look!
Lots of love,
