Bridal Consultation - Pretty Purples

Hi Bellas,

I did a Bridal Consultation a few weeks ago and wanted to share some pics. The consultation was a lot of fun. I love doing makeovers on people who aren't afraid of makeup! Our bride to be was definitely a fan of dramatic eyes and liner. She brought in lots of pictures of Kim Kardashian makeup! In the end, we decided to compromise by picking a pretty lilac color as the star of the show.

She didn't want to be a typical bride with super natural makeup, but she didn't want to go too dark either. After our consultation, I think I was able to work with her to find a good compromise. It will be an evening wedding and she can definitely pull off a little more drama on the eyes. On top of it all, she has a large eye palette which made the look easy to do. We talked a little bit after our consultation and she decided to tone down the purple...I think it's a good move so we don't freak out the parents, lol.

She's also from my home town of Orlando so we had a lot of fun talking about going to the random reggae clubs and getting accosted by somebody's uncle, he he.

Anyways, here's her look!

On her eyes she's wearing:
-too faced shadow insurance
-bare canvas paint
-beautiful iris e/s
-smut e/s
-poison pen e/s (is that the name? it's a matte2 purple e/s)
-motif e/s
-parfait amour e/s
-we also used lots of black liner
-ardell wispies (2 on each eye)

-cinema secrets foundation
-graftobian powder
-studio finish color corrector in orange
-definitive sculpting powder
-Bobbi Brown blush in peony
-NARS albatross highlighter

-plum soft lipliner
-NYX lipstick (don't remember which one)

More pics!

Have a great weekend! Ciao Bellas!
