Bridal Trial for Two

Hi Bellas,

I wanted to share with you a bridal trial from a few weeks back. For brides I like to highly encourage a trial before the big day to make sure we select the perfect look. This also gives me the opportunity as an artist to pack smart, and quickly execute the look on the wedding day. Trials can take sometimes up to 3 hours depending on the bride.

In this case, I had two brides to do. They are planning a November 8th wedding and both wanted to look great! Both of them hardly wear makeup but were very open to something new. The trial was so easy because they loved the first look I tried on them. They were such an amazing, happy couple and I wish them the best! I can't wait to see how everything turns out on the big day.

For Sandi, she wanted to go a little more dramatic and purple was her favorite color. We went for a smokey eye with a hint of purple but still kept it looking neutral. I also did a bit of contouring to make her features pop!

Here's What I Used (All MAC unless otherwise mentioned):

-Graftobian Oxyderm Moisturizer
-Fix Plus
-Lumene primer
-Cinema Secrets cream foundation
-Graftobian Dual Foundation Powder
-sculpting powder in definitive
-shaping powder in accentuate
-housewine blush

-Two Faced Shadow Insurance
-soft ochre paint pot
-fashion groupie e/s
-shadowy lady e/s
-bamboo e/s
-antiqued e/s
-Revlon Colorstay liquid liner in blackest black
-smolder eye kohl
-Ardell 120 Demis Lashes
-Spiked Brow Pencil and embark e/s on brows

-chesnut lip pencil
-sappalicious lip gelee

On Adrienne, she wanted something a bit more natural. I went with fall colors again using my beloved MAC Spiced Chocolate quad. The neutral look with a bit of color really suited her personality. She also had great skin!

Here's What I Used (All MAC unless otherwise mentioned):

-Eve Pearl priming moisturizer
-Graftobian Cream foundation
-Graftobian Dual Set Powder
-Housewine Blush
-Shadester Sculpting Powder
-Emphasize Shaping Powder

-Spiked Brow Pencil and espresso e/s on brows
-Two Faced Shadow Insurance

-bamboo e/s

The second eye combo is to die for. My own wedding eyes were also gold-red type of eyes as I was an Indian bride. I want to recreate this more natural look at home. Very lovely!
