Wedding Wednesday | Makeup Trial

Wednesday, April 27, 2016


Did you know that VIB Rouge members can go for unlimited makeovers at Sephora?! I actually did know that, but I had never utilized the perk until recently.

A few weeks ago I went to Sephora & got a free makeover (well, actually it wasn't free free because I ended up buying a bunch of products that were used). Nonetheless, I had a great time and the makeup artist, Aya, was so nice (check out her instagram here). I wanted to test out a potential wedding look. Something natural and simple, but photographed well. 

I love the look she created. It was exactly what I wanted, so I thought I would share the products she used. I will denote products that I bought after this trial with some asterisks (**), otherwise all the other products I already had in my collection.

When I went for the trial, I went in with a clean slate. I had nothing on my face except for some moisturizer and some lip balm. 

The Base

I'm wearing the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer** to help my makeup stay put, along with the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation** in Y375. To concealer the dark circles, I'm wearing the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer** in Medium-Dark Warm.

The Cheeks

It started with some contour using the Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder and then some bronzing using the Hourglass Ambient Bronzer in Luminous Bronze (I own Radiant Bronze, though). The blush was NARS Orgasm. This blush is the only one I ever had to repurchase because I used it up—funny enough, I don't own a full-size anymore... the only one I have resides in my Danmari Palette. The highlighter was the Hourglass Ambient Strobing Powder in Euphoric**, although, I picked up the Laura Mercier Radiance Baked Powder in 01 Highlight** and I love it more!

The Eyes

The simple eye look was created using the Make Up For Ever Artist Palette Volume 1 – Nudes. It's a great neutral palette. I meant to pick it up during the Sephora sale, but I didn't get around to it. The original Urban Decay Naked Palette has similar shadows to recreate the look. Of course, to hold the eye shadow in place, I have on some Urban Decay Primer Potion**. I don't remember what was used to tightline, but it was a black eye pencil (shown is my favourite liner from Annabelle).

I have a bit of mascara on, too, but imagine this look with fuller/longer lashes because I plan to get some lash extensions for the big day.

The Lips

For a soft peachy pout, I'm wearing the Marc Jacobs New Nudes Sheer Gel lipstick in Eat Cake with a dab of YSL Gloss Voluptè in #203 on the centre of the lips.








That's the look, let me know what you think! :)
