Hi Lash Lovers, I'm back for another segment of 'Get The Look'! I am super excited to give the beauty breakdown of a Beautiful Bride I did recently. The Bride sent me some pics of what she thought would look Bridal-licious on her and I think after her makeup consultation plus tweaking a couple of things, we achieved just the perfect Bridal Beauty look for her.

1. Prep the Skin

I use vegan eye cream from 100% pure line...just a little dab will do ya. Pat under the eyes using your ring finger, so as to be as delicate as possible for that area of the face. This caffeine enriched product should de-puff and hydrate at the same time....if that doesn't work...have bride use an ice cube and run the cube over the under eye area a couple times if puffy. :)) Depending on skin and texture, I always moisturize with Embryolisse and/or a Primer. I used Makeup Forever's Mattifying Primer on her T-Zone to control oiliness throughout the evening.

2. Eyes

Prep the eye area with Urban Decay Original Primer for staying power.(Love this stuff) Next I used a Bobbi Brown highlight color palette (Sandwash Eye Palette) that is just an amazing little palette of radiance....used Sunshine shimmer on lids. Also I brought this color into the inner corners of the eye to give the illusion that she is more awake and that her eyes are farther apart. Over the peach color I used Metallic Peach from Stila on her lids (this is a metallic color but the consistency is not a powder shadow per se because the texture is extremely malleable and amazing. But had to put it on with my finger and not the mixing medium it comes with which is fine) but this just made her eyes pop! I used the Naked 3 palette from Urban Decay and brushed on Limit onto the creases and blended, then used Factory and Liar on the outer corners to really draw the eye up and out. Then, Kohl eyeliner in Costa Riche from Mac on the upper lids and soften line and used I Get No Kick Liner from Mac on lower lash line to once again brighten the eye area and make the whites of her eyes appear more white. (a trick of the trade) Used Laura Mercier Noir Gel Liner on a straight edge brush and transferred it onto the upper lash line...whatever was left over from this with a little mix of Factory and Liar from above was brought a bit under her lower lashes. Her lashes were enhanced with extensions from our very own Esther Bolkin, the Director of Glad Lash! She wore single strand lashes in our Signature Mink C Curl .20 x 9, 10 and 11mm. They were absolutely perfect...looked so natural and beautiful. I also used Glad Lash's mascara that is intended for eyelash extensions (Lashe EnMasse Mascara in Black)....woohoo! Glad Lash thinks of everything! Because finishing off an eye makeup with mascara is just a necessity in my opinion. :)) ** I do recommend putting the mascara on with a small fan brush if you have because it's a more delicate application than the mascara wand itself, but that is my opinion.

3. Face

Now that her face has been able to sit with the moisturizer/primer on it for a's showtime with the highlighting. I used YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch in 2.5 on her cheeks, forehead, nose as well as the area in-between her nose and middle of her upper lip, and chin. Then blended with a Beauty Blender with is the best! Used Makeup Forever's HD foundation in N120 on her and Amazing Cosmetics concealer in Medium Gold for under eyes. Blended it all onto the skin so it looked seamless. And of course always blend into the next area as well. Again, blended with Beauty Blender. Cream Blush...the bride loved the look of pink cheeks so that's exactly what I gave her! This was perfection on her skin tone, Mac Sweet William which is a luminescent cream blush I added to the apples of her cheeks and blended up. Once powdered, I used Benefit's Hoola on cheek bones to address the contouring. Also added a bit of Hoola onto temples and under chin so light is absorbed in those areas.

4. Brows

Anastasia Waterproof Gel on brows and filled in with Mac's Soft Charcoal and Browning. Highlight brows with the highlight color in this palette.

5. Lips

Mac Dervish Lip Liner Too Faced Melted Peony lip color (Obsessed with these long wearing colors) Mac Dazzle Glass in 'Steppin Ou't on top for a pop of sheen. Whalllah!! Bride=Stunning! As a makeup artist, I have said it before, it's not an easy job to take someone's vision and turn it into a reality especially on their wedding day...but when a bride looks in the mirror when the makeup application is over and the look of sweet 'JOY' is apparent, then my job is done...and only then. :)) Contributed by: Heather Coopersmith To follow Heather and her lash outs please visit her FB group and website!
