Very Natural Maid of Honor Makeup

Hi Bellas,

I wanted to share another wedding makeover.  I did the makeup for the Maid of Honor and she was a super natural girl.  This is what I call - the "no makeup" makeup look that is still enough to look great in pictures and a little something extra in person.
First, I used a light to medium coverage foundation - MUFE HD.  A lighter shade in the middle and darker shade on the outside for subtle contouring.  I lightly shaded in the brows with eyeshadow.  On her eyes, I applied a thin line of gel liner and lightly smoked it out with a charcoal shimmer shadow that complimented her navy blue dress.  She let me apply lashes but I had cut them in half and applied only the outer half for a bit of emphasis.  To me, lashes can totally add that special something without having to apply a whole bunch of shadow.
A neat trick to dress up the face naturally is to highlight.  I applied shimmer to her browbones, tear ducts, bridge of nose, cheekbones and cupid's bow in order to light up her face.  On her lips, I did what we call "My Lips But Better", picking a similar lipstick that was close to her natural lip shade and adding a bit of gloss for shine and comfort.
I hope you all enjoyed this natural look.  I wish I had gotten the before shot, darn!  Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
