the one about bridesmaid makeup

My best friend is getting married this month. Ya’ll I’m so excited. AND I have a couple weeks worth of bridesmaid posts for you, so you should be excited too. The first one is all about bridesmaid makeup.

I’ve been in several weddings, and I’ve done my makeup for each and everyone (even my own). I’ve had it done professionally, and every time I’m just a little disappointed so I gave up. But I’ve never been in a glamorous winter wedding so I decided to practice a little for this one.


That’s how we ended up. I like it. I didn’t use too, too many products, and I got it all done in 15 minutes. To get started I fixed up my eyebrows. I learned this trick from Michelle Phan. Your eyebrows frame your face so starting there gives you the full frame you’ll be working in. I used a Jouer Brow Definer and anastasia brow gel.


Once that’s all done use your favorite foundation, concealer, and setting powder to give yourself an even complexion. What I’m currently using is tarte 12 hr full coverage foundation, fake up crease control concealer, and tarte smooth operator finishing powder.


I wanted to have dramatic eyes, but nothing too dramatic. So after I primed them with e.l.f. Primer, I covered the lid in Mary Kay Cream Eye Color ~ Pale Blush, and put mary kay mineral eye shadow in granite in the crease. To finish off I did a kitten eye with benefit they’re real! eyeliner, and several coats of my favorite mascara.

I did a simple pink cheek with stila Custom Color Blush, Pink, and then to finish up the look I used a light coat of Mary Kay Crème Lip Stick Red. The lip is a dramatic color, but I didn’t want a completely bright red lip so one coat with some clear gloss over the top was perfect!


All done! Have you been in a glamourous winter wedding? I’d love to hear your tips!
