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
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!!!

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
