Wedding Belles!

This post has been a long time in the making...

My brother got married almost a month ago, on September 10th, and I was given the (rather scary!) responsibility of doing the makeup. I thought you might be interested to see what I used on the day, and of course some of the pictures of the beautiful bride and her bridesmaids (myself included!)

When I laid the products out on the floor to take this picture it actually looked like a lot of products, but the looks we went for on the day were very natural, classic ‘bridal’ looks.

Firstly, for the bride…
Left-right, Top-bottom: RMK Primer, Georgio Armani Fluid Sheer in Pale Shimmering Rose, Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in B30, Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda Concealer Palette, Bare Minerals Original Mineral Veil, Urban Decay Eyelash Curlers, Sleek Contour Kit in Light (I only used the contour shade), Stila Kitten Highlighting duo, MAC blush in Desert Rose, Urban Decay Primer Potion, MAC Brow Set, Smashbox Brow Tech in Brunette, Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner in Espresso Ink, NARS Eyeshadow in Ashes to Ashes, MAC Eyesahdows in Orb, Naked Lunch, Omega and Embark, Estee Lauder Crystal Baby Lipstick, MAC Creamsheen Glass in Deelight, YSL Touche Eclat (2), YSL Effet Faux Cils Mascara in black, Estee Lauder Sumptuous waterproof mascara in black (for the bottom lashes!), Skindinavia setting spray for Oily skin, A selection of brushes from MAC, Royal & Langnickel Sigma, Smashbox and BH Cosmetics.

A closer look at some of the shades...

The happy couple...
We all had such a fabulous day, and I don't think I've ever seen the bride and groom look so happy! 

There is one thing I hate about weddings though... They seem to go so quickly! I never wanted the day to end and it went by in a flash!
