Glowy Wedding Guest Makeup

Hi Bellas,

Happy Monday!  I'm back with another FOTD.  You might already know that I don't typically wear makeup on a day to day basis.  Usually it's tinted moisturizer and if I feel like it, blush and powder.  The opportunities that I do my makeup I really try to take a picture so that I can show you all.  I had the opportunity to do so when I attended a wedding a few weeks ago.  

This was the first time in a long time that I've been to a wedding and not done the makeup, lol.  I was actually helping to coordinate it for my co-worker.  As a guest to a wedding, I believe that your makeup should be clean and not too over-board.  You don't want to take the spotlight away from the bride.  

For my look, I actually did the entire application in the car, lol.  You may notice the seatbelts.  It was a 2.5 hour drive to the wedding and I had more than enough time to apply everything just the way I wanted it.  I didn't pack anything special, just the typical colors I have in my makeup bag.  I actually use the same neutrals for my personal makeup looks.  

The final look!  I love how makeup looks in natural sunlight.  Super flattering!


Funny story is that I accidentally brought some lashes that didn't match.  One lash was Sonia Kashuk's glamour lashes and the other was from Shisem.  I had to end up building up some layers on my Shisem lash to match the Sonia Kashuk lash, lol.

I don't exactly remember what I used, but since most of the products are my everyday makeup bag items, it should be pretty close to this:

FACE
NYX HD foundation primer
Palladio Foundations in Sandy Beige and Honey Beige
Palladio Liquid Concealer in Yellow
Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer in Medium
Eve Pearl HD Pressed Powder in Tan
NYX Sun to Sun Bronzer
MAC Blunt Blush
MAC Soft N Gentle MSF
MAC Pearl Matte Face Powder

EYES
Steelo eyeshadow base in medium
Urban Decay light gold shadow as highlight
Aveda Eyeshadow Trio
Wet N Wild Envy Palette
Feline Kohl Pencil
MAC Penultimate Liner
NYX Fly By Me Mascara
Shisem and Sonia Kashuk Lashes
Revlon Lash Glue
Tarte Brow Pencil in Medium Brown
Smashbow Brunette Brow Trio

LIPS
MAC Hodge Podge Lip Pencil
MAC Brave New Bronze Lipstick
Dior Peach Lipgloss

It may seem like a lot of products, but very little was applied of each.  It's a process of layering and building and blending to get the look.  And as you can see, I use a mix of both high and low end products.  Hope you enjoyed!  Till next time, Ciao Bellas!

I really, REALLY like the way your makeup looks in this post.

I've always wondered what some of your makeup looks look like under natural lighting since the majority of them are done at home.

What stands out the most (to me) is how natural your eyebrows look. Would the same makeup/tools you used on your brows look good on say someone who is NC37, natural black hair...?

Thanks Ren!

I was wondering if there was anyone out there that liked the Palladio foundation. I've always been curious to try it but was afraid that it was a dud.
