Ru Paul's Drag Race "Here Comes the Bride" Makeup Tutorial

Hi Bellas,

Back with another tutorial!  You all know how much I love Ru Paul's Drag Race.  I catch the re-runs on VH1 and every time I watch i'm filled with makeup inspiration.  Today's look was not really inspired by any particular contestant's look...more so the overall theme of makeup being worn.

To see my look and tutorial, click here!

I noticed that the look was very nude - with lots of warm toned browns.  It seemed like the contestants were all trying for that light and angelic bridal look.  One color in particular popped in my head as I saw many of the looks - MAC's Swiss Chocolate eyeshadow.  It's a brown with a strong pink undertone.  I used this shadow along with a lot of other of MAC shadows with a pink base.  Of course, I went super nude with the lips and etched them out with liner.

Check out my video tutorial!

The final look!

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

-Shadester sculpting powder
-Accentuate shaping powder
-NARS blush in Luster
-10 Pan Concealer Palette from Sedona Lace Cosmetics
-Jemma Kid Rose Gold highlighter

-Steelo Eyeshadow base in medium

Looks great! The highlighter looks lovely on you. Also, those ELF lases don't look too bad either. Did you use the glue that came with them?

fab! i love kicked up neutrals! i've been trying to collect warm toned browns and yes swiss chocolate is a fave. many of the palettes mac releases are so cool.. but they def have some great permanent warm toned browns with red, pink, orange etc in them. what foundation did you use? i saw that you listed concealer, powders... did that do it??
