Pinup Bride

This was the look I did for my own wedding — simple so as not to be jarring, but bold enough to be special. The star was a perfect red lip, but the focus was on a smooth, flawless complexion, and a defined eye. The whole wedding had a vintage vibe, so I feel this look suited the day well.

I just wanted to do something red/burgundy. I used the LORAC Pro Palette and Makeup Geek eyeshadows.

UD Flipside, inner corner & blended up into inner crease; Bad to the Bronze (Mabelline Color Tattoo), middle to outer lid & blended up above crease; Kat Von D Disintegration, outer-V and inner crease; UD Skimp on inner corner, brow highlight. Milani Liquif’eye eyeliner in Teal (inner lash line & tight line) + UD pencil in West, middle to outer lashline & tightline. Buxom mascara. Blush from Too Faced Natural Face Palette.

Sad Brows!

I focused on the skin for this look, which I wanted to be kind of cinematic and sad. The brows probably did more for that than the contouring. 😛
