As another wedding season winds down I thought now would be a good time to reflect upon the products I used most on my brides and share them with you. I generally only use high-end products on clients and this is especially true for brides. The below list contains some super expensive products but I definitely think they are worth the money.
1. Tom Ford eyeshadow quad in Coco Mirage – $125
The colours in this quad work on most skin tones. They blend like nothing else and I found myself using this on almost every bride. My favourite way to use this palette is to cover the whole eye with the lightest shade, use the lightest brown through the crease and then blend in the dark brown over the top. For a super smokey look line with gel liner and then smudge out with the darkest brown.
This foundation is a medium cover foundation that makes skin glow. I find that it is long wearing on normal to dry skin types however I generally wouldn’t use it on combo or oily girls. For combo or oily skin I like to mix Chanel Perfection Lumier with the Luminous Silk.
It was hard for me to choose one bronzing / highlighting / contouring product! I used this palette on almost every bride. The sculpting shade in the palette has a light sheen to it but I have found that it can be used as a light contour or bronzer and looks beautiful. The highlighter has a gold sheen to it can be used to highlight the face or even the eyes. She now has a palette for medium to dark skin tones and it’s on my list of things to buy.
4. Skindinavia The Makeup Finishing Spray – $39.95
I have this spray in both the original and the oil control and use them on almost every makeup. If someone has very oily skin I will spritz them with the oil control spray before the makeup application and after to really lock it all in place.
5. Maybelline Gel Liner – $16.95
After trying a lot of expensive gel liners I really can’t go past the Maybelline eye studio gel liner. I love it because it doesn’t dry out like other gel liners, it is super dooper long wearing and it blends out really well. My favourite way to use this liner is to blend it out either on its own or with a shadow (it looks beautiful blended out with the dark brown in the Tom Ford palette).
There are so many more products I love and find myself reaching for time and time again. Maybe I will list them in another post.
Thanks for reading!
