Though I am by no means a trained makeup artist, my family tend to rope me into applying their makeup anytime they have a special event to attend. Indeed, when we are all going to the same event I often spend more time on their face than my own and they end up looking extra amazing (but don't worry, I always take the credit for it!) My sister recently attended a wedding and came to me to pretty up her face - here is the result!I can't take credit for her side-swept hair (hair stylist I most definitely am not!) but I used some slightly grey-toned neutrals to just subtly define her eyes - she didn't want to go too dark for the daytime ceremony! I didn't manage to capture a photo of her front on without a funny face involved, so here is a picture of the back of her hair which looked so amazing! The plait ran from the side of her head around the back and into the flipped section which was loosely curled, and though I may be biased she looked so good!
I normally use the warmer shades from the Urban Decay Naked Palette on her (as she is quite tanned) but I went for cooler toned shades from other brands this time to mix it up a little bit. I swept Burberry Rosewood over the lid and then defined the crease with Too Faced Garter Belt, before highlighting the brow bone with Too Faced In The Buff. I went heavy with the highlight in the inner corners with Sin, and the look was complete!
Do you have a go-to look when you attend a wedding?
Do you intensify your makeup before the reception, or go all out from before the ceremony?
