Thank you for your response on the Christian Wedding Makeup Tutorial, it was very encouraging and a special thank you to Jomol for the confidence she shows in me, if not for her, I wouldn’t have even attempted more than half the tutorials here!
I wanted to share another bridal look and I thought I would go attempt this one with keeping a color in mind. Pink is a popular bridal color and I know many girls who would prefer a pink look for their wedding. So, this is my take on a pink eye makeup look – with a pop of some different colors too and of course glitter as well!
Products used to achieve this look:
- Celia Makeup 120 Pro Eyeshadow Palette.
- Faces Canada Glitter Stack.
- Maybelline Great Lash Big Washable Mascara.
- Lakme Insta Liner.
- Florelle Kajal Eye Pencil.
- Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink.
The types of brushes used for creating this look:
- A flat brush – this one is a synthetic brush, a flat brush helps in packing on and placing color.
- Blending brush – any kind of fluffy brush that would help in blending colors.
- Small precision brush to draw pigmented, thick lines – used here for the green lines in the corners, the thickness is ideal for picking up good amount of color , the small tapered edge/tip allows in creating a neat wing.
- An eyeliner brush – this one is from Camlin, yup, the stationery brand. I have been using this for more than a year, so the number of the brush has rubbed off. It is the 2nd or 3rd thinnest brush they have. Check out this article by Aparijita for more information on excellent alternatives to makeup brushes.
Step By Step Tutorial:
Prime – if you don’t have a good primer, just use a tiny amount of cream concealer and pat your regular compact powder over it. I use this almost on a daily basis, it works like a charm. But if you have very oily lids, then do go for a good primer, this is just an alternative for my non-oily lids.
Gold base – Apply a light shimmery gold color all over the eyelid. The idea behind using a shimmery gold is that even if a matte color is placed over it, the shimmer will still show through.
Light pink – I then took a light, bright pink and placed it on the centre of the upper lid.
Reddish Pink Outer V – I then placed a darker color in the outer V and blended it with the light pink.
Blend Crease – I used a shimmery warm pink, to blend out the crease area. This color is lighter than the color in Step 04 but darker than the color in Step 03. Using different gradations of a similar color gives a very effortlessly complex look to the eye.
Reapply colors and liner – Blending can take away some colors, so I added more red and pink, and blended it out again and kept repeating till I was satisfied with the look. I also took a bit of the pink and gold on the lower lash line and added a gel liner. The liner need not be super neat just yet, since glitter is going to be applied and in the end the liner can be further intensified.
Additional pop of color – Depending on the dress, you can choose this color, as an example I chose green here, as it shows up well. You may have blue on your dress or purple, if no other color is there then just a silver or gold depending on the work on the dress can also be used. I used this color below the liner applied in the outer corner to create a wing and also placed some in the inner corner over the tear duct area.
Glitter it up – Now, the fun part, adding the glitter! I used gold in the inner corner and red on the remaining lid. As a base for the glue, I used eye lash adhesive. It dries color and glitter stick to it very well. If you don’t have different colored glitter, then use silver or gold glitter all over the eye, and below the glue dries completely, pat a small amount of the corresponding eyeshadow color, like here I used pink eyeshadow to dab over the glitter placed in the centre of the lid. When it dries, the glitter has a pink tinge to it.
I then applied some false lashes and that is the eyemakeup done!
Just to give some ideas, I kept the cheeks coraly-pink, not just pink as it might get over the top with too much pink and for the lips, I used a light yet deep pink color and in the centre, dabbed some gold eyeshadow and topped it with a tiny amount of gloss. The gold gives a good break from just a flat pink & adds some bridal-y oomph.
I hope you liked this look; until next time bye-bye and Happy Makeuping!
