Wedding season is just around the corner, and whether you're going to be a bride yourself, or a guest we think you'll agree how lovely it is to get all dressed up to celebrate. Today we're showing you how to get this soft Spring Bridal makeup!
Lets start with our brows - we want them full but soft. We begin by brushing through the hairs with the spoolie end of our Bella&Bear Iberian Lynx brow brush to lightly shape them
We are then using the brush end and some collection brow bar powder and we are filling in ant sparser areas of the brows and defining the shape. You can go back in again with the spoolie if you wish to have a softer finish to the brows.
We are grabbing our Bella&Bear Golden cat brush now and some Urban decay Naked skin concealer and we are outlining the brows with it, pulling the product outward. This will define the brows more and give them beautiful shape.
Its all about those eyes for this look, so we are first going in with some Kyrolan eyeshadow primer to lock our shadows in place and make the colours extra strong.
Now, we are using our Bella&Bear Sand cat brush to work a matte bone shadow all over the lid and up to the brow bone - this will even out the tone of the skin on the lid. We are using the Lick and Lash warm 35 palette for this look.
Next, we are picking up our Bella&Bear Bornean Bay cat brush and a matte chocolate brown shadow and we are working it onto the outer corner of the eye and slightly into the crease of the eye.
Lets pick up a bronze shimmer shadow now, using our Bella&Bear Fishing Cat brush and we are blending it into that chocolate brown shadow, just bringing it a little further out onto the lid.
Next, lets go for gold. Taking some shimmer gold shadow on our Bella&Bear Marbled cat brush we are repeating the previous step - blending it into the bronze shadow and bringing it a little further out onto the lid.
Now, lets complete the lid with something a little more neural. Taking our Bella&Bear Jaguarundy cat brush and a shimmer champagne shadow we are going to dust it onto the remainder of the lid and into the inner corner.
Lets line and define now! We want a sweeping, elegant wing for this look so its important to start small and build it up, We use our trusty Bella&Bear Serval angled liner brush along with some NYX gel liner and we start with a thin line and add to it until pleased.
If you want something a little extra for your big day then add some wispy falsies like us - nothing too dramatic. We use our Bella&Bear Angled tweezers to place a set of the Ardell Demi Wispies Falsies as close to the upper lash line as possible and allow time to dry.
Lets work on the skin now - we want it gorgeous and glowing! We start with a primer to mask the pores and make our base smooth and flawless. We are using the Bodyshop Instablur for this.
Now, lets think about our skin. We want a full coverage foundation for this look so we are using some Estee Lauder Double wear foundation and mixing it with some Bodyshop Drops of Glow lumiser for that lit from within look. We buff this over the skin using our Bella&Bear Jaguar angled kabuki for a smooth, streak free finish.
You may have some areas which you wish to cover and conceal - lets do that now! We're using our Bella&Bear Ocelot concealer brush along with some more UD concealer and we are blending it into our foundation to disguise dark circles and blemishes.
Although we want our skin to be glowing for this look, its important that we still set our concealer to prevent it from creasing and sliding. Were pressing some Laura Mericer Translucent powder onto our concealer using our Bella&Bear Margay cat brush.
We then lock that all in place with a generous spritz of the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray
We're going to finish the eyes off now by applying a little shadow to the lower lashline. We're picking up our Bella&Bear Fishing Cat brush and some more of that matte chocolate brown shadow and we're working onto the outer edge of the lower lashline, pulling the product downward for a softer edge.
Lets think about adding a touch of colour to the face now. Picking up our Bella&Bear Bobcat brush and a matte bronzer - we love Hoola By Benefit - we are gently dusting it into the hollows of the cheeks, onto the temples and along the hair line.
Finally, we want to work on the lips, keeping them soft and dainty like the eyes. We firstly line them with some liner to accentuate the shape and to prevent our lip colour from bleeding out.
Lastly, lets highlight for a delicate glow. Using our Bella&Bear Cheetah Duo Fiber powder brush and a champagne highlight (we love The Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector ) we are going to dust it over the high points of the cheeks, down the centre of the nose and on the cupids bow.
We once again spritz the face with some All Nighter Setting Spray to lock everthing in place.
For our hair, we are going to keep it loose and soft. We begin by brushing through using our Bella&Bear Brush on you detangler to keep it sleek and smooth.
We then loosely curl the hair and clip back a small amount at each side of the front of the head!
