Bronze Glitter Wedding Guest Makeup Tutorial

Today I had the pleasure of doing my good friend’s makeup for a wedding that she would be attending. I love working on her because she trusts me unconditionally and pretty much gives me free reign over her beautiful face and create kind of a makeup tutorial for you all.

We started off with a clean face. Just to make sure there is no residue from any previous makeup, I used a cotton square (I prefer ones by Shiseido) soaked in micellar cleansing water to quickly clean the face. I then go in with a moisturizer; I use CeraVe, and follow up with a primer.




I like to start the makeup off with the eyes. I prime the eye with a little bit of concealer and set it with some bone colored eye shadow. In this case I used the lightest shade from the Morphe 350 palette but any bone shade will do.




For this look we decided to go with a brown, smoky eye with a little bit of glitter. I began with the lightest shade from the Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita Palette and put it all over the lid using a flat shader brush from Sigma.




I continued with placing the second shade from that palette in the outer corner and the crease and darkened the outer corner with shade number 3 from the same palette. To finish off the eye, and because my friend wanted glitter, I used lit forever wear glitter base to apply Urban Decay’s Space Cowboy on the inner third of the lid.

After the eyes were done, it was time to move on to the face. For the base I used Mac’s Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in NC 15 for the center and NC 20 for the outer parts of the face. I applied the foundation with an It Cosmetics brush and went over it with a beauty blender. For the under eyes I used a combination of Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Concealer Duo in Sand and Maybelline Instant Age Rewind. I set the under eye with a little bake and for that I used Laura Mercier Translucent powder. For Her lashes I used a little It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara and some lengthening lashes from Eylure in 155.






For bronzing and contouring I used Tom Ford’s bronzer in Terra applied with a Bobbi Brown Powder Brush. I blushed up her cheeks with a mix of Mac’s Melba and Margin using a Wayne Goss number 11 brush. For her highlight, I used Estee Lauder x Victoria Bekham Illuminateur in 01 Modern Mercury applied with Anastasia Beverly Hills number 23 Brush.






I finished off the eyes with lining the waterline and under eye with a brown pencil from Marc Jacobs Beauty and smoking it out. Lips were lined and filled in with Mac’s lip pencil in Soar and topped with Tom Ford’s Nude Vanille and Anastasia Beverly Hill’s gloss in Dainty.




I sprayed the face with some Fix+ and VOILA!

As a make up artist it is really important to clean your brushes and sponges and not many do that. I would only go to her and give her A+++++ in all aspects! Must go to!
