Wedding Makeup | Annie

Eyeshadows are sooo much fun. I often use MAC shadows or I’ll choose my favourite shades from different palettes from several brands- Urban Decay and Inglot are some staples of mine. So when I met Annie for the first time I wanted to go for a soft classic eye look. In my opinion smokey eye just screams false eyelashes to make a more dramatic but not over the top look with lightly line lips, a natural colour and some sheer in peach or barley there pick nude to fill in her lips.

So to enhance her eyes I lined her liner upward to ensure her eyes looked larger and rounder. I then curled those lashes added, falsies and applied 2 coats of black mascara. A makeup look is never finished until you’ve groomed and filled in your brows. In order for her eyes to look flawless we went for a medium defined eyebrow game. I filled in sparse areas with eyebrow powder and combed the brows until they were in place. A bold brow looks great with a smokey eye because you can draw even more attention to those stunning eyes.

Here’s what I used on Annie:

Complexion: Makeup Forever HD Foundation, Nars Illumintor in Orgasm

Eyes: Urban decay Naked Palette 1, All That Glitters Mac Cosmetics, Urban Decay Brown Eyeliner

Lips: Yash Lipstick and Spice liner MAC Cosmetics

Lashes: Model Rock Individual Lashes

Brows: Anastasia Beverly Hills

Strobing | Beth

Strobing is a makeup technique most of us makeup artist’s use on their clients. It involves highlighting their face using light only and the effect is just as flattering as a pop of the camera flash. It gives the face a dewy fresh complexion, highlights your best features and can make you look younger. Strobing can be used to brighten your eyes, sculpt your nose, emphasise your pout, and enhance your cheek bones.

Beth’s makeup look was for her school formal where I used a full strip of lashes from ModelRock. She has the most amazing flawless skin where I didn’t have to apply much foundation on her. I highlighted her inner eyes, cheekbones, bridge of her nose and cupid’s bow and viola.

You can strobe like a pro as well. Just use the following steps below and let me know how you go:

To enhance and sculpt- Apply a highlighter I love soft and gentle from Mac Cosmetics to the top of the cheek bones and down the nose

To Brighten the Eyes- Apply a highlighter to the brow bone and inner corner off the eye

To Brighten the Skin- Apply a highlighter to the forehead and chin

To create the illusion of fuller lips- Apply to the cupid’s bow
