My flat mate just got married, and I was honored when she asked me if I could do her makeup!
This was the first time I got to work on a client after moving to New York!
What’s most important at time like this – is the bride is most comfortable in her attire and makeup!
My friend, Maria had a simple wedding & she wanted to look simple but the best version of herself.
Maria, is not used to wearing a ton of makeup on a day to day basis because she suffers from Lupus, and her skin is currently peeling – so trying something new or going heavy handed with extra layers of foundation on her wedding day would be a big NO NO.
My goal was for her to feel like the best version of herself on her special day.
So, I used simple powder foundation on (one that she has been using and her skin is accustomed to)
With here eyes, I used a neutral palette from ‘Makeup Revolution London’, just two shades – a matte brown to contour the shape of the eye & a shimmer to highlight the inner corner of the eye.
Maria wanted to fill her own eyebrows so I let her do that!
I then lined Maria’s eye and gave her a slight flick to lift her eye and open it. Topped it off with 3 coats of waterproof mascara and layered the lightest pair of ‘Arden Lashes – Whispies’
While I wanted to go with a deep red on Maria (Anastasia Beverly Hills – Heathers) on her lips because I thought it would compliment her outfit and her beautiful face, she was comfortable with a nude shade, therefore I used ‘Elf’s matte lipstick in Brown’.
I avoided highlight because of the texture in her skin & contoured the jaw and cheekbones.
This completes Maria’s wedding look, I hope you enjoy some of the pictures below!
Here’s to wishing Maria & her husband a very happy married life!
Please let me know what you think of this look!
