Here is another beautiful bride from last year. The gorgeous Elaine decided to go for a very natural and radiant bridal make-up look. Elaine wanted to look like herself, but a little more defined.
To create the radiance, I opted for a dewy foundation, namely Lancome’s Teint Miracle. This foundation is great for people with normal to slightly dry skin. You have to be careful though that you powder this foundation on the t-zone as it can be a little too shiny for photography on some people.
Elaine has fantastic bone structure which I accentuated with MAC’s Contour Powder in Taupe. I then applied the Peaches blusher sweeping from the apples of the cheeks upwards.
I defined her lips with MAC’s Whirl Lipliner, which is a great colour which will work for most lipcolours as it is quite neutral and close to the natural lipcolour. On top of this I applied Estee Lauder Bois De Rose which is a gorgeous rose colour.
For her eyes we decided to keep it fresh and natural, but with subtle definition. We used individual lash inserts to really accentuate her eyes without looking overly made up. This was paired with a natural light brown blended eyeshadow and brown eyeliner smudged into the lash line.
I think that the finished look really suited the style that Elaine was going for. From the lace to the pink and white flowers everything had a classic romantic feel to it.
These gorgeous pictures really capture the lovely moments of Elaine’s big day. They were taken by the seriously talented Carol Dunica, who is a wedding photographer in Drogheda. You can check out her work here: Capture Photography.
What do you think? Do you think you would be a classic romantic bride?
Lots of love,
