Today I was looking through some makeup posts and came across Kandee Johnson’s bridal makeup tutorial … After watching way too many of her makeup videos I was inspired to try my hand at a full face of makeup, but I decided to forgo fake lashes, although I will totally be wearing them on my wedding day!
I have always been of the “less is more” makeup school. I never wear foundation or concealer, make no effort to cover blemishes and usually only play up my eyes.
Case in point:
While I love my everyday makeup look. I was very intruiged by Kandee’s videos and gave it a shot.
Before with no makeup:
After Kandee’s Tutorial:
I LOVE the way it looks in pictures with a flash… My skin looks so flawless! Outside in overcast light it looks a little dull though.
What do you think?
Have you used Kandee’s makeup tutorial? Show me your results!

Oh you look awesome!! What did you need to have on hand to do this, if you don’t mind me asking?

Wow! thats awesome, I wanna do this!
Maybe a lil more blush and/ or bronzer might make it better in natural light?
btw you have awesome eyes!

Turned out amazing! Although even without any foundation/concealer on & only your eyes played up (1st pic), you are still beautiful! Will definitely be checking out this youtube video.. My Maid/Matron of Honor laughs because I learned how to do smokey eyes & curl my hair with a flat iron via youtube videos.. Hey, whatever works! 🙂

@luckyprincess: I have quite the makeup arsenal that I never really use (I’m a bit of a makeup hoarder lol)… But I used:
Maybelline Super Stay 24 hour foundation (I bought it for halloween makeup, but it covers really well!)
Physicians Formula Concealer Twin (I only used the skin tone side)
I sealed all of that in with Covergirl True Blend Loose Powder
N.Y.C. New York Sun 2 Sun Bronzer (for contouring and only used the dark side)
For highlighting I used my the gold shimmer in my Almay Intense i-color trio for green eyes… which I also used on my eyes… but I mixed the middle color with a dark chocolate brown shadow I had to make it a bit darker, and also used it as a liner.
For blush I used Revlon Cream Blush in Berry Flirtatious
And sealed the blush in with some really old Clinique blush I had in rhubarb.
Other than that I used my favorite Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara in Rich Black with my trusty eyelash curler.
But a little secret, I then used every mascara in my makeup box… Which consists of: Covergirl Lash Blast, Maybelline Volum’ Express and Covergirl Volume Exact…
I used Oislau lip gloss that I got in a gift bag a long time ago, just a sheer pink. And used a shade of brown eyshadow that matched my eyebrows on my eyebrows. I should also note that I have a wide array of brushes, but nothing you can’t get at walmart.
That’s about it… Sorry that was kind of long… But everything is rather cheap and easy to get at your local grocery store or walmart.

@HoneyBear: Thank you! I think you’re right, but I worry that it looks funny in person if I have too much bronzer on. lol

I love Kandee! I’ve been following her tutorials and trying different looks, I’m much more confident in doing my own makeup now. And I learned how to curl my hair with a flatiron from youtube too, its a very good resource for DIY!

Oh thanks so much! You’re so adorable to give me the pics with each item – that’s super helpful! I think I have most of this stuff but I’ll need to grab some foundation – guess I’m hitting CVS tomorrow.

@luckyprincess: No problem! I never read labels or go by brands when I shop I go by pictures or what something looks like… So I figured pictures would help you find it if your looking for something in particular. 🙂
