Wedding Post - Make up (part 2)

I did my Mum's Make Up.
She has beautiful skin and, apart from creams and potions, she never wear any make up; we did a couple of  trials beforehand and decided to go with something really natural.


I only applied the L'Oreal Studio Secrets Primer to smooth the skin but no foundation at all. Actually, I think I used some concealer under the eyes but I can't remember for sure, sorry.
Then I went with some Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal to highlight: this was the perfect shade for her skin colour and finished off the skin with a pop of Mac Sheertone Blush in BlushBaby.

On the eyes just a wash of colour of an eyeshadow my sister had: Maybelline Eye Studio Duo in 62 Mocha Mirage - this is a baked eyeshadow, really cream and easy to blend.
I thicker the eyelashes with Jane Iredale PureLash Extender and Conditioner, followed by few coats of Dior DiorShow New Look mascara.
Finally on the lips, Paul & Joe Lower East Side Lipstick - perfect mix of neutral and pink.
I think, my mum was pleased with the end result an enjoyed a bit of pampering. :)

My sister, instead, went for a bold statement lip! I love it!


Again on the skin, she only needed a bit of Garnier Roll-On Anti Dark Circles Concealer under the eyes and Clarins Instant Light Blush in Tonic Coral on the cheeks - this works both as blusher and highlighter.
Eyes were kept pretty simple too with Nee Make Up Deep Black Extension mascara and Clarins Eyeliner Pencil in Black.
Finally, lips were the centre of attention: Rose Petal Salve to hydrate and Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in 38 La Fascinante.
