How To: Summer Bridal Makeup Tutorial

Hello bellas. So I thought that I would put together a glamorous bridal/wedding makeup look. I did the look with and without lashes, to show you what a huge difference, lashes make. If falsies aren’t your cup of tea, just add a few coats of waterproof black mascara, and you’re ready to go.


MAC Painterly Paint Pot placed on the entire lid, up to brow.
MAC Texture E/S placed in the crease, blended up towards the brow bone.
MAC All that Glitters and Texure E/S, mixed to create a rose gold shadow. Place this colour on the lid.
MAC Sketch E/S on outer “V”.
MAC Smut E/S placed on the inner “V” to help darken and define more.
MAC Ricepaper E/S on the inner corners of eye.
L’Oreal Infalible eyeliner in Black. Line top lashline and wing it up towards the end.
MAC Khol pencil in Smolder, placed in waterline.
MAC Smut and Saddle mixed, to blend out liner at lower lashline.
Ardell “120” Demi, doubled up, for a fuller glamorous look.


Bodyography Clear primer
Cover F/X Camoflage Concealer in Medium. I use this to help correct my under eye circles. The colour morphs to your skin tone…pretty cool.
Make Up For Ever Face and Body Foundation, used all over, blended out with my Beauty Blender, in a patting motion.
Ben Nye Banana Powder to set under eyes.
Graftobian Dual Finish Foundation in Satin Sand to set the rest of the face.
Ben Nye Blush in Golden Amber to lightly contour cheekbones.
Graftobian Dual Finish Foundation in Hot Chocolate, to help deepen the contour of the cheekbones. Also placed on temples, hairline, under chin, and sides of nose.
Ben Nye Blush in Fresh Coral and Golden Amber on apple of cheeks.


Light taupey-brown brow pencil to help define brows.
MAC Omega, Charcoal Brown, & Espresso E/S to fill in brows.


MAC Lipstick in Fresh Brew
Nude lipliner
OCC Liptar in Hush in the centre of the lips for a pop of colour.

My Top 10 Beauty and Womanly Pet Peeves

These are just some of my beauty and womanly pet peeves, that have been acquired over the years. I am sure there are way more, but these are the ones that come up often for me.

My Top 10 Beauty and Womanly Pet Peeves

Number 10

Having a really great hair day, when I have no where to go.

Number 9

Not having tampons on hand, when my monthly visitor comes. Having to rush out to buy some!!

Number 8

Chipping or breaking my one nail, while all the others are looking good.

Number 7

Getting the mascara on the bridge of my nose, or by the cheekbone. After I have done my foundation.

Number 6

Lipstick testers with lipstick smashed all over it…gross!

Number 5

Getting a pimple on a day/night where my face has to be flawless.

Number 4

Days where I am too lazy to do my makeup and hair, and running into someone I know…and haven’t seen in a long time.

Number 3

Breaking my hair elastic, and the metal bit hitting the back of my hand. Also not having another elastic in my purse.

Number 2

Rummaging through my purse not being able to find the lipstick I want to wear. Usually pulling out every other lipstick, but the one I want.

Number 1

Forgetting my pressed powder at home…and for this oily T-Zone woman, it is a sin! 🙂

Oh I said top 10, but here is one I also need to mention…Not having anything to wear. I have ransacked my closet, my bed has a small mountain growing on it. I turn to my husband and say: ” I think I need to go to the mall to pick up a new outfit, I don’t have anything to wear.” With a smirk on my face.

What are some of your pet peeves? I know you have some to share. 🙂 Comment below…come on it’s fun!

New Years Party Look!


Heya lovelies, I thought I would share what I did for my New Years Eve look. I went for a more glamorous look…well really…when don’t I ? :). So here goes my step by step makeup routine. Enjoy!


I used my go to moisturizer Embryolisse-Lait-Crème Concentré. Only on my dryer areas of my face. Usually my cheeks, temples, sides of nose, and chin area.


I’m loving the Cover F/X Skin Prep. Such a light silky feeling, not thick like some of the other silicone based primers. “It’s an anti-aging foundation primer that repairs. Hydrates and smooths skin to blur the appearance of fine lines and pores”. Who doesn’t want that!!

So I applied the Cover F/X all over my face, you do not need much at all. Maybe a small pea sized amount.


Using my favorite foundation Cinema Secrets, I scooped out a little bit of #302-65A and #303-66A on to the back of my hand. Using my foundation brush I dotted the foundation around my face and blended thoroughly. Using the darker foundation #303-66A, I gently contoured my cheekbones, temples, and the sides of my nose.


I like to lightly pat my RCMA No-Color Powder, on to my T-Zone. In a patting motion as to not disturb the foundation, and will help me get more of the oil out. Yay! I usually will use a big fluffy brush, but sometimes the oil is much greater, so I will pat it on with a puff.


For priming my lids I used, MAC Paint in Sublime Nature. Using my fingers to blend, I brought up the paint to my brow bone.

Lid color I used Yaby e/s – Silver Dust. Silver Dust is a light silver. Apply in a patting motion with a MAC 239 brush. Also applied Silver Dust to the lower lash line.

In the crease I applied Yaby e/s – Twinkle. Twinkle is a dark gray/black with some flecks of glitter. Slightly bringing the color down to the outside corner of the eye, with a MAC 217 brush.

In the very outer edge of my eye (the outer V),I smudged on some Yaby e/s – Carbon Paper. Carbon Paper is a beautiful dark blue color, but when blended out has slight greenish hue to it.

Reapply a little Carbon Paper and Twinkle right into the crease at the outer corner, to help define the eye a little more. Blend slightly.

Inner corner of the eye I blended a bit of Yaby e/s – Baby Sapphire and Ben Nye’s Pigment – Ice. Gives a lovely little twinkle to eye and helps open your eyes up.

I lined my eyes, top and bottom in the waterline, with L’Oreal Infallible gel liner in Blackest Black. Then I put some small dots of pencil liner from MUFE Aqua Eyes in 01, on the outside corner of my eye. I then smudged the pencil with a mix of Twinkle and Carbon Paper.

Curled my lashes with Shiseido lash curler, applied L’Oreal Voluminous – Carbon Black mascara. Then I put on my false lashes from Ardell #138, with DUO lash glue. I like to apply my false lashes with tweezers and looking down a hand held mirror.


On my cheeks I used Ben Nye blush in the Fashion Rouge Palette – Golden Amber. I used all along the cheekbone and slightly under to contour. Then I applied Nectarine from the same palette on the apples of my cheeks, slightly blending towards my hairline. I used a blush brush from Real Techniques.

Next I applied a little bronzer from NARS in Casino, all around the perimeter of my face, across the cheeks and nose also a little on the sides of my nose.

For highlighting I used a MAC MSF in Soft and Gentle, along the the tops of my cheekbones, and tiny bit on the apples of my cheeks, This helps bring out my flat cheekbones, haha!


For my brows, which I barely have any on the ends, I must pencil it in for definition. So what I used was Annebelle pencil in Mink. I framed the brows lightly with the pencil. Then I added powder shadow from Yaby in Firewood, Fresh Earth, and Smoked Maple. For a softer more natural look.


Pucker up! What I did was apply Revlon’s Colorburst lipstick in Soft Nude. Then I took a little Stila’s Lip Glaze in Joy, and patted it on my lips. I used my finger, for a more subtle color.

Setting Spray:

For a night on the town, I like to limit the amount of touch up time. As a final step, I like to use my Ben Nye – Final Seal setting spray. It leaves a matte finish, so I will mainly spray around the T-Zone area. Voila and i’m done.
