Bridal Makeup- Classic, Effortless, Eternal

I Never Thought I'd Do This...

Why?  Because Bridal Makeup is in the imagination of every bride.  It can be anything she wants. I don't want to post a look of what Bridal Makeup SHOULD BE because there is no way (in my creative mind) that concept exists.

So here I am.  Again, entering another competition.  This theme: Bridal Makeup.  CLASSIC, EFFORTLESS, ETERNAL.

So this is what you get.
Colleen. Serving you my interpretation of a dreamy eyed, innocent, simple, classic look that to me- screams: fresh, young, eternal beauty.  Not too heavy.  Super wearable. This is a "Look at my face, and not my makeup" look. I think most brides want that.  It's not Halloween, gurl!!  It's your wedding day!! 

I hope you like it.  If you would like to vote for this look, I'll post the link to the competition at the end of this post.  I really love all of your comments and encouragement. You all are the best!! :-)
Seriously.  You are all the best. Thank you! :-)





Ivy was super excited to help this evening.













Just in case you are wondering.... I used the Coastal Scents Metal Mania palette pretty much for all of the shadows.  I did that on purpose.  I wanted a soft satin finish.  Lashes are my beloved Ardell 120's, blush was from the Lauren Luke Vintage Glam palette, and lips are courtesy of Nyx in Round Lipstick in B52 with Cafe Latte gloss.

Ok ok!! Sorry so wordy!!  Here is the link to the competition entry if you feel so inclined to show me some LUV

Have a beautiful day. NO. Strike that. Have a KICK ASS day!!  (And may it STILL be beautiful!!)

xoxo,
Colleen & Ivy

  1. it looks lovely on you and it matches your hair.
    in my opinion, brides should always opt for a natural look because what has to pop is the dress! :)

  4. Classic? Effortless? Eternal?

    WOW.

    Let me just say that this look captures all three of those elements, and so much more! The skin is flawless, and the makeup is on point. Very, very talented! :D
