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

Smokey Eyes | Danika

Let me introduce this stunning face to you all.

Danika booked me in well over a year before her wedding day and I’m blessed to have been a part of her big day. She sure is a hottie..

It came as no surprise that with Danika’s bridal look I wanted to make her eyes pop and ensure her skin was highlighted and contoured. Now, highlighting and contouring has been around for so long thanks to the Kardashian’s, but it’s only recently become the new hype and a lot more makeup artists are implementing it into their bridal makeup looks. ( I’ll write more about highlight and contour in another post) The key to contouring is BLEND BLEND BLEND.

So for Danika’s wedding day look these are the key products that I used:

Complexion: Mac Studio Fix Fluid mixed with Mac Sculpt Foundation. Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Powder Palette. Mac Soft and Gentle highlighter

Eyes: Urban Decay Eye shadow Primer, Urban Decay Naked Palette, Model Rock Individual lashes

Lips: Urban decay Lip liner In Obsessed Mac Long wear Lip glass Patience Please

False Lashes | Stacy

Step up your eye makeup game with some glamorous false lashes.

Falsies add definition and depth to eyes that mascara just can’t replicate.

False lashes are a bridal makeup look “must have”. I personally love individual false lashes. Although my makeup kit is fully stocked both with full strips and individuals. I know with individuals once there put on properly no matter how much the bride cries or how windy it is there not moving. There incredibly lightweight and the beauty of them is I can make them look like a full strip without the added heaviness. From simple to glam individual lashes are amazing..

They look incredible with a winged eye liner, easy to maintain and easier to fall in love with. False eyelashes open up your eyes, making them appear larger and brighter. Plus what’s more glamorous than batting your false lashes at your husband!!!

Once you schedule your bridal makeup trial at belle@bellaformakeup.com I’ll go through and show you the stunning lashes I have in my kit.

Bridal Makeup | Paige

When Paige hired me to get her ready for her wedding day in Shelly beach I couldn’t help but feel incredibly flattered. I was going for a more glamorous bridal vibe with her.

Below is what I used to create her look:

Primer- Hourglass Veil

Foundation- MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid- ONe of my favourite foundations. It lasts long, photographs beautifully. Applied with a brush

Concealer- Mac Pro Longwear- It’s grat coverage and never looks heavy or cakey

Contour- Anastasia Beverly Hills Powder Contour Palette- I’m not a huge fan over contouring as it looks quite harsh in the flesh so I like to keep it soft.

Lip Liner- Mac Cosmetics Soar

Lipstick- Mac Cosmetics Please Me

Lip Gloss- Bobbi Brown Pale Pick

Cheeks- Nars Orgasm and Benefit Hoola Powder

Eyes- Urban Decay Primer, Mac Cosmetics Naked Lunch, Embark, Urban decay Eye Liner, Benefit They’re Real Mascara, Inglot Black Gel Liner top lash line. Model Rock Full lashes

Makeup | What Eyeshadow Colours to Use for Different Eye Colour’s

eyeshadows-colorWhen it comes to your wedding day every bride dreams of looking the best she possibly can. So one thing to always remember is that, you do want to look like yourself but a better version. On trend fashion colours will quickly go out of date. The last thing you want is to look back at your pictures and think “what was I thinking”

I personally love natural but flawless skin and neutral tones for eyes and hair colour, it’s timeless, elegant, classic and looks good with any shape or skin tone. It’s ok to introduce a hint of colour around the eyes but remember, the colour that’s in for this year will not be in years to come.

I like to keep with neutral toned eye shadows. Lots of yummy warm chocolates, peaches, browns, soft pinks. Very bridal but I know those colours work for most skin tones. I like to introduce colour in the eyeliner or a slight enhancer in a soft shadow in the outer corners of the eye for just an illusion of colour.

Here are the power shades to enhance and draw attention to your eye colour.

Brown eyes – Greens, champagnes, bronzes, golds, browns and blues. Also try peach, corals, copper, pink, pale purples and burnt oranges.
Blue eyes – brown/orange, taupe, grey, violet, purple, deep blue and silver. To emphasize blue eyes try brown and rose shadows.
Green eyes – Brown colours from light beige’s – deep chocolate browns. Light purples and pinks will compliment green eyes, but stay away from greens olives and silvers.
Hazel eyes – Browns, gold, pink and lavender. Plum, khaki and mocha. Purple makes eyes more dramatic and use soft pink for a more romantic look. Avoid – Blue, silver, grey and blue black.

Fair skin should always avoid anything orange or brassy as this will look very un-natural.

Mature eyes should always avoid anything with shimmer as this will enhance lines and age you more and we don’t want that!!!

If your skin is naturally pink or red avoid anything pink around the eyes as this will only make it worse.

To lighten up tired eyes you can apply some eye drops then apply a white eyeliner on the water rim of your eyes.

Consult a professional eyebrow shaper to have your face shape and eye shape taken into consideration.

Always use a great mascara to finish the look as this will enhance and open up the eye.

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
