On my wedding day, almost 12 months ago – I decided to do my own make up. I have always been confident in doing my own make up but by no means does that mean I always get it right but on this occasion I think I did. I had several practices before hand and read review after review about products I wanted to use. I cannot remember every detail of what I used that day but I can remember the main things.
Here is a few pictures to show you the result:
I had decided on a romantic look with brown smokey eyes and pale pink cheeks. I started out with a definite must have, my smashbox primer and then I used Smashbox Studio Skin 15 hour wear hydrating foundation in light beige on my face as this had no SPF and I really did not want to risk any flash back! On my cheeks I contoured with Sleek contour kit in medium and I used Dior cheek creme in Capri on the apples of my cheeks followed by a dusting of Dior powder blush in Rose Darling. At the very last minute, literally the day before I had decided to go for individual lash extensions and I have to say I was so glad I did. It really did make a difference and I did not have the worry of mascara running down my face!
The eye shadow I used was a mixture of a Smashbox Quad and Dior Quad but I cannot remember the combination that I used.
I used my trusty real techniques brushes for this look.
Thanks for reading and I would love to hear your thoughts on my first blog post!
