We all have professional buckets lists right? Things we want to accomplish in our career and lifetime? I have ones both big and small and one of those things on my list included doing bridal makeup for a true and natural redhead. Maybe it’s because my hair falls into the strawberry blonde category, maybe it’s because redheads photograph so well in pictures, maybe it’s because you never really see natural red hair to begin with…
Sweet Sarah. Sweet, sweet adorable Sarah made those dreams come true for me, and boy did she pull through. Not only does she look like Ariel the Mermaid, I am prett-y sure she is in fact a real life Disney princess. She is so sweet and so lovable that I can only hope every bride I work with in the future is half as nice as she is.
So onto the good stuff and the reason why we’re here…Sarah’s makeup details.
Let me shoot a disclaimer here right now and tell you that Sarah just has gorgeous, luminous skin on her own. We enhanced it with the Bobbi Brown foundation palette and the L.A. Girl Pro Concealer. We used a MAC eyeshadow for her cheek + nose + lip highlighter (yes you can do that.) The eyeshadow color if I remember correctly is called “Naked Lunch.”
We did a soft shimmery smokey eye with a small cateye liner and for that I love the MAC Fluidline Gel. I apply it with an angled brush and it’s the best I’ve found for staying put all day and not creasing on the lid. I also swear by the Benefit Stay Don’t Stray eyeshadow primer, it’s an absolute MUST for wedding day makeup.
Lastly, I sealed her makeup with the great Model in a Bottle setting spray for sensitive skin. This stuff will SEAL THE DEAL with makeup application and it’s perfect for brides who need their makeup to last all day and night!
What do you think of Sarah’s wedding day makeup? Is it something you see yourself wearing? I love it because I think she looks like such a fresh and beautiful bride!
