Dolly’s makeup is a classic example of a simple bridal look, with a natural and even skin tone, and light eye shadow. Since the colors in the wedding consisted mainly of cream, white, pink, and purple, shadows and palettes were designed to the specificity of the bride, as well in coordination to the theme. Dolly has fair skin that easily allows the appearance of natural reds in her skin’s undertones, and after cleansing the face to begin with a fresh palette, a fair sheer tone of light coverage foundation was applied with a sponge. This helped to avoid brush-marks on her face, leaving her coverage even, opposed to creating streaks for the red-based tones to appear through. Considerate of the event, a water-proof mascara was applied as well as singular false eyelashes along the bed of the eyelid to thicken the density as well as contrast the eyes against the rest of the features on the face.
Teresa is displaying a classic smokey eye makeup that is uniquely applied in techniques that best suit her face shape and structure. Since she has naturally wide spread eyes, one must be careful not to extend the outside corners of the eyes too far out resulting in visually pulling the eyes further apart. Black eye shadow was applied over the entire bottom half of the eyelid and was attentively blended onto the crease just slightly extending over the brow bone. When creating a smokey eye look, it is very important to have proportions of eye shadow to eyelid balanced and symmetrical. Since black, or other dark colours leave a strong statement, its important that you have a balanced a proportionate statement!
