Askmewhats Version: Just another "Bridal" Look

When I had my one-on-one make-up lesson with the Chief Make-up Artist of P&J Ms. Cherry Pacheco Uy, the first request look I've asked from her is Bridal look. I know bridal look is one of the most difficult look a make-up artist have to do as it requires flawless skin that looks so natural yet a "glow" should be created for the Bride's most important day of her life. Plus that fact that everything has to be waterproof! LOL


Did you know?

I cried while walking down the aisle? The moment the door of the church opened, I looked at Keith, then to my parents, then I saw my mom crying! LOL There you go! Poise --- GONE! lol But thank God for waterproof make-up, I know how important that is!!!


A reader requested me to do a bridal look, I have to apologize as I didn't complete all the "Bridal" Look requirements, I've only used Mineral Foundation as I came back from work and putting on liquid foundation on my "already made up" face felt weird. But, because I love you my dear reader who requested this look, I've done this before the year ends. Congratulations in advance and I hope you have a great wedding next year!

Here's my finished eye look

Diagram time!

1. Cover Girl Eye Enhancers Barely Beige - swept all over the crease

2. Lancome Maquiriche Eyecolor Duo Matte Brown color - out V corner to deepen the crease.

For bridal look, try to use matte colors as glittery shadows will not show up good on photos.

3. Bourjois Beige Rose - to highlight the brow bone and inner corner of the eye.

Choose any beige color but make sure not the shimmy ones.

Other products used not on diagram ---

    Beeyoutiful7, thanks for liking my wedding shot, I was so worrying about my make-up all messed up, when I'm finally with hubby, the first thing I asked is: "Are my falsies still intact?" lol :)

    Purple snowflake, you are so right!!!! Eventhough I love putting make up on other people, people who have seen me would know that I'm into light colors or neutrals, hubby doesn't like it if I put too much! :) So does most of the guys! :)

  20. Liz, :) Happy New Year to you too and I'll keep on smiling for sure!

    Happy 2009, Lovely -- you really have been a huge delightful part of my first seven months in the blogosphere. I'm still learning how it all works, finding my cyberfeet, and you always brighten my day. Thanks so much!

    Hugs and happiness! xoxo

  31. sabby :) no, i wasn't the one who did my own make up, I don't want to stress myself on my wedding day :) thanks
