A couple of weeks ago I shared the big reveal on my Bright Colours Big City shoot. This makeup is perfect for the modern funky bride. Fresh English rose skin, a bold pink lip and graphic black eyeliner combines for a super pretty Spring/Summer bridal look. So I asked the makeup artist Debbie Purkiss for a little step by step so you can get the look!
“Step One: We started by prepping the skin with some MAC strobe cream to give a luminous glow.
Step Two: Moving onto the eyes, I always use a base for eyeshadow especially on brides as it needs to last all day and night so I used MAC paint pot in Painterly.
Step Three: Then I used MAC wedge eyeshadow in the crease with a fluffy blending brush (MAC 217 brush)
Step Four: For the graphic eye look, I used MAC Blacktrack gel liner with a MAC 210 brush (super fine) to create the liquid liner and flick.
Step Five: As it’s a bridal look I like to use a fluttery lash to compliment the look like Ardelle Demi wispies.
Step Six: I used MAC lingering brow pencil in the brows with some clear brow gel (looks like a clear mascara) to fix any stray hairs.
Step Seven: Then we moved onto the face, I like to do eyes first as then any fallout of shadow under the eye can be wiped away prior to foundation application. I used MAC Face and Body foundation as I wanted to keep it dewy and fresh. Salne has beautiful skin so she didn’t need much! Be sure to be light handed and build up coverage slowly.
Step Eight: I used MAC moisture cover concealer under eyes then set all of that with MAC Mineralise pressed powder.
Step Nine: Blush was MAC dainty (my favourite bridal colour) with some MAC Shell cream colour base as a highlight. No contour was used as we wanted to keep the look fresh and youthful.
Step Ten: I then finished off with MAC Magenta lip liner with MAC Girl About Town lipstick for the pop of bright pink colour to the lips.”
