AMW Makeover: Bridal Makeup

Hi AMW friends!
It's another Makeover day!  I hope you like the before and after photos I show and let me know if you have any questions by commenting below!

I've done a lovely bride last Saturday and I really enjoy being part of such exciting event!  That is one reason why I concentrate more on Bridal makeup because the energy is just amazing! 

Here's my gorgeous bride very pretty even sans makeup!

Before and After Noelle
Skin type: Oily and Acidic
Request: Keep the oil at bay at the same time, make sure foundation doesn't darken on her.

I did Trial Makeup on her several weeks before the wedding.  The makeup I've done on her for trial is lighter as compared to the day of her wedding.  Well, I always darken the makeup of my brides on the day of her wedding because of the harsh lighting from photographers.

Trial Makeup Look

 I apologize for the unclear photos as my loyal Photographer wasn't with me on that day!  He had to stay at home to take care of our little one while mommy goes out for work! :)

On Noelle:
  • I primed her skin with Benefit Porefessional and Laura Mercier primer.
  • I used RMK Foundation on her taking time to apply layer by layer, adding more foundation on areas that needed most coverage.
  • Concealed her undereye circles with Make Up Forever Concealer palette.
  • Used my favorite Benefit Brow zings for her brows.
  • Primed her eyes with Urban Decay Primer potion and used various shadows from Bobbi Brown and MAC.
  • Lined her eyes with Bobbi Brown Gel Liner.
  • Applied falsies that I purchased online called ES Lashes from KKCenterHK.
  • Used Benefit Chacha tint on both her cheeks and lips as base.
  • Used Chanel blush (peachy pink shade) and did a bit of gradient effect on her lips.
  • Set her makeup with Ben Nye Banana powder and sprayed with Mary Kay Skindinavia Finishing Spray.
  • I also applied Benefit Bathina cream all over her upper body.
By the way, she also availed retouch service and this was her second look before reception.
