Stacy’s Bridal Makeup Breakdown & Step by Step

Hey Beauty’s

Welcome back to my blog, ok so as promised here is the full low down on the products that I used to create Stacy’s gorgeously unique Bridal look.
I had a trail with Stacy a couple of months before the big day so I went in knowing exactly what I was going to do.

You can watch the whole process here

Skin Prep

untitled-2
To start with I prepped Stacy’s skin with Sonia Roselli’s Sexapeel Instant Exfoliating spray–  this stuff is absolutely amazing, I ordered from the US after reading so many great reviews, and the hype is for a reason, it works!! It Instantly exfoliates dead flaky skin to leave soft, smooth skin, perfect first step to skin prep.
Next I used Sonia Roselli’s Japanese Cleansing Oil, to remove all traces of oil and dirt,

For moisturiser I used Sonia Roselli’s Waterbalm,

What can I say Sonia about stuff is amazing and they work, full product reviews and blog on her amazing range coming soon.
Back to this makeup look

Browsuntitled-4

I filled the Brow using Sleek Brow Kit in Extra Dark,

First of all I fill in and shaped the brows using the wax part of the kit, then set with the power part of the kit.

If you want brows that don’t go anywhere, this is the product to use.

Outline and further define the brows with L.A. Girl Cosmetics Pro Conceal HD Concealer in Fawn around the brows and blend out.

I then prepped Stacy’s eyelids for eyeshadow using Urban Decays Eye Primer Potion in Eden

Eyeshadow

untitled-3

Then I used Couleur Caramels Matte Eyeshadow in Chocolate Brown all over the lids  up to the brow bone, to create a uniform base.

I then used the Pixi by Petra’s multipurpose loose eyeshadow pigments in Metallic Warmth,

First off use the Second shade down on the lower parts of the lid, highlight inner corner of the eyes and under brows with the lightest shade, and darkest brown was used in the crease to create some definition, concentrating on the outer corners.

Skin / Foundation

I used Use L.A. Girl Pro Conceal Hd High Definiton Concealer in Orange to neutralise darker areas. Stacy has great skin so this was minimal, and blended out.
   untitled-1
To get the perfect foundation colour, I mixed Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation in Shades SB15 and SB16
Then I put a little bit of the L.A. Girl Cosmetics Pro Conceal HD Concealer in Fawn under the eyes to brighten up the area, set under eyes with Laura Mercier’s Transluscent powder in Universal .
I also used the Laura Mercier’s Transluscent powder in Medium Deep all over the face to  unify the colours and set the foundation after I applied the Cream Coutour (see below).

Highlight, Contour & Blush

untitled-5
For contouring I use Barry M’s Chisel Cheeks Contour Cream Kit, applying to the hollows of the cheeks to define cheeks, blend upwards.
I then applied MARÉNA BEAUTÉ’s Blush Tarou in Cambi Berry in circular motions to buff into the cheeks.

Lips

untitled-6

For Stacy’s Lips we used Dr Paw Paw’s tinted Ultimate Red Balm to moisturise the lips.
Now I was going to be using Kat Von Dee’s Underage Red – Matte Fire Engine Red Lipstick like we did at Stacy’s trail, but her cousin had bought a MAC liquid lipstick for her to use to be able to top up later if need be.

Setting

The make sure the makeup stays in place all day I used Urban Decay’s all nighter setting  spray
