Steph Mcwhirter 3

Steph is another one of my Brides who I had the pleasure of doing her wedding makeup for more than once.  This was great, as it allowed us to try out a few different looks. On her wedding day Steph chose a timeless look, selecting very natural colours, these in turn complimented her gorgeous blue eyes perfectly.

For her foundation I used the Evolve Airbrush (working range #4), giving her a flawless, yet natural complexion. On her eyes I used Kaizen coral shimmer all over the mobile lid and followed this with the Kaizen chocolate shimmer in the outer corner and blending into the crease.  To further enhance her contour I used M.A.C “espresso”.  I used Napolean black gel liner along her lashline and into the inner corner of her eye.  I used the Napolean Set eyeliner in “dubai green” along her waterline.  Beneath her lower lashes I used some M.A.C espresso eyeshadow to soften the look around her eyes.  I used individual lashes by Ardell, concentrating on the outer corner stepping them down from long to short, creating an outer flick and opening up her eye.

Her cheeks I used Evolve “admire me” (coral coloured blush) – this keeps within the warm tones of the eye make up and also compliments her blue eyes. Her lips I used a nude liner and coloured her entire lip and then followed with an Evolve lip gloss “edible”. I contoured and highlighted her face using both the Napolean Mozaic Bronzer and Highlighter. Finally I set her wedding makeup with Napolean Camera Finish #4 all over her face.
