- Wedding: May 2015
I am doing my own makeup on my wedding day next month and I was curious to hear from other DIY brides.
Here is my products breakdown:
Foundation: Laura Mercier radiance primer mixed with Make up for ever HD foundation
Concealer: MAC pro longwear concealer for undereye, MAC studio finish on blemishes, MAC emphasize powder (for setting the undereye)
Setting powder: Laura Mercier translucent loose powder
Blush: Makeup for ever HD cream blush + NARS Orgasm powder blush, Clinique Ginger Cheek Pop or Hourglass Diffused Heat (not sure yet!)
Bronzer: not sure again, maybe Soleil Tan de Chanel or Benefit Hoola. I will not do any countouring, only warm up my skin a bit on the perimeter of my face.
Highlighter: not sure I’ll use one, maybe a little dusting of Hourglass Dim lighting Ambiant powder or The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer
Setting spray: Urban Decay All Nighter
Brows: Anastasia Brow Wiz
Eye base: NARS smudge-proof primer, MAC Painterly paintpot
Eyeshadow: Urban Decay Naked Basics and Naked 1 for mattes, MAC Naked Lunch, Grain and Embark
Eyeliner: MAC Smolder
Mascara: probably Armani Eyes to Kill + Anastasia waterproof top coat
Lips: can’t decide! Fiance hates lipstick/gloss/any sticky lip product and chances are we’ll be kissing a whole lot that day… I would like to find a good stain I could rub on my lips with my finger and top it with lip balm maybe? Otherwise I was thinking of Urban Decay Revolution lipstick in Naked.
That’s it (lol)! It seems like a lot but I will be putting very thin layers of everything, trying to make it as natural as possible. I want glowy (not oily!) skin, defined but natural eyes (matte shadows, no heavy liner or false lashes) and nude-pink lips. I’ve been practicing a couple of times already and I am pleased with the results.
What will you be using? I would love to see (and try) your other combinations!
