All About The Eyes
Your eyes should really "pop" on your wedding day! One way to do this is by adding false lashes. On this particular bride I used Ardell strip lashes 120 ($11.03) to give her that gorgeous wide-eyed look. Be sure to trim the false lashes before applying so that they don't hang past your natural lash line. All the eyeshadows I used come in Too Faced Cosmetic's The Natural Eye palette ($32.40). This is a very flattering palette for most skin tones and comes with fun instructions for different eye looks. From this palette I used 'Silk Teddy' from lash to brow and 'Cocoa Puff' in the crease. I then lined and then lined the eyes with 'Sexspresso'.
Lips & Cheeks
I applied MAC blush in 'Pinch O' Peach' ($25.64) to the apples of Angela's cheeks. To complete her look I used Sonia Kashuk's Velvety Matte Lip Crayon in Pinky Nude 09 ($7.59) to line and fill in her lips. To give the lips a hint of shine, I dotted on a bit of Sephora's Glossy Gloss in Pink Macaroon 11 ($12).
