MOTD: Bridal Makeup Jannett

Bridal Makeup- villabeautifful

I love doing bridal makeup and being part of a bride's special day.  Jannet contacted me 2 weeks ago regarding makeup for her wedding (she actually planned her wedding in 2 weeks!)  I always tell my brides to send me pictures of makeup styles that interest them. This really helps me get inspired and see what type of direction they would like to take.  Jannet was a super easy bride and I love the end results of her makeup.  Smokey eye, nude/pink lip perfect makeup for an evening wedding.

Here are the products that I used to create this look

  • Embroylisse Lait-Crème Concentre moisturizer
  • Whip Hand Cosmetics Set The Stage Makeup Primer
  • Belletto Studio Airbrush Makeup Y3 Latte and Y4 Sweet Honey
  • MAC Cosmetics NW25 under eye NC30 redness
  • Smashbox Photo Finish 24 Hour Shadow Primer (THE BEST!)
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo Ebony
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Catwalk Palette (my go-to bridal palette)
  • MAC White Frost / Nylon Shadow Highlight inner corner
  • MAC Chromaline Black Black for top liner
  • Urban Decay Cosmetics 47/7 Glide On Eye Pencil Zero
  • MAC Peachykeen Blush
  • MAC Angel Lipstick with Spice Lip Pencil

I wish I would have done these before and after makeups more! I totally regret not doing them during my whole makeup career.  Oh well here's to a new start!

Tutorial: Bright Eyes with Naked 1 Palette

Naked 1 Bright Eyes

It's been a couple of years since the Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette has been released and to this very day it's still my favorite. The rich collection of metallic golds, bronzes and neutral browns make it my go-to palette for everyday wear and for an evening out.  This is also the palette of choice by a lot my brides that I have worked with over the years.  

I totally forgot to post this look for the summer time since a bright lip (especially orange) is always on trend for the season.  I didn't want it to go to waste and thought that the neutral eye shadow would be appropriate all year- just change up the lip shade.  The Champagne L.A. Girl Glide Gel Liner with the shadow Sin from the palette really brighten up the eyes. 

URBAN DECAY NAKED PALETTES IN A Z-PALETTE

In the video I show you a glimpse of my depotted Naked Palettes (1-3) and a limited edition Smashbox Soft Box Palette (wish this was available all the time).  I love having all my "neutral" palettes in one place, easy for me to grab and create looks with all of the shades and keep my kit nicely condensed.  The picture of all three palettes that I printed from my computer and taped to the back of the palette is from THE FABZILLA.  Her blog is amazing and very detailed with swatches.  If you would love to see how I did this please leave a comment below!

MOTD Wedding Makeup Soft Smokey Eye

motdsoftsmokeyeye

This was look was inspired by one of my upcoming brides.  I love the shimmer but yet soft smokey look that brings definition to the eyes for a bride. I always think of bridal makeup as the more glamorous you - pretty, romantic and still you.  This is what I love to do - working with the bride to make her feel beautiful and most importantly enjoy her special day.  Last year I was a bride and it was just a magical time to finally be the bride and not the makeup artist (but I did do my own makeup, more about that later).
