This post is my entry for Amy Antoinette's giveaway :o)
To enter, she asked her followers to create a 'English Country Garden Wedding' makeup look.
This is what I came up with:
When considering a country wedding, I thought that a statement lip or eye would be far too harsh for such an occasion so I chose products with shimmer for a sort of 'lit from within' look.
To get the overall 'glow' I used Benefit Posie Tint on my cheeks to add a flush of colour, over this I dusted a little Sugarbomb for a small amount of iridescence. I used a small amount of bronzer to contour, and highlighted my cheekbones with 'High Beam'.
I kept the eye makeup neutral and light. I used MAC 'Rubanesque' Paint pot all over as a base, then Benefit 'Rich Beach' all over the lid. I blended UD 'Buck' to the crease and highlighted the brow bone and inner corner with 'sin'. I believe this makes blue eyes pop! I kept eyeliner to an absolute minimum, just placing some Benefit Bad Gal (not pictured) in the inner 3/4 of the waterline.
I felt the lips were the best place to make a statement so I used Benetint here. I think this would be fabulous for a bride as it is so long - lasting! For some glitz (and luxe!) I added a small amount of Dior Addict 'Basic'.
I really hope you like my look Amy! I have no doubt your own wedding makeup will be stunning :o)
If any of you haven't entered Amy's fab giveaway, you should! I believe it ends on Monday.
Love, H xoxo
