DIY Natural Smokey Eye Bridal Tutorial

It's summer time, and wedding season is in full bloom - I myself was wedding in June and I thought it would be a great idea to try and re-create my own bridal look as well as giving my readers a tutorial on how to achieve this look if you wanted to do your own make-up on the big day! This works for both the bride as well as if you are in the bridal party, or even a guest. I was recently sent the Too Faced Natural Love Palette to review and looking at this palette, the shades of it, the name of it - I knew it would be the perfect one to do this post and tutorial on.

I paired this look with two different lip colors - one natural and one slightly darker, a bit more dramatic - this can be from day to night, or just whatever is your own preference. 


Below is a picture of the products that were recently sent to me for review - which are new releases from Too Faced. I will for sure have a new post up soon with lip swatches of the different lipsticks, however for now I just wanted to give you a sneak peek of some of the goodies I got :) 


I recently watched this video which talked about how so many brides want a "natural smokey eye look" which honestly doesn't exist, but somehow we all know what you mean ~ and that is the look I hopefully have created below. 

For the eyes, I took:
- Heaven all over the lids to the brow bone.
- Spotlight buffed out with a large fluffy brush on the crease
- Honey Butter on a more defined fluffy brush on the crease
- Nudie on an even more defined brush, focusing on the outer V
- Makeup & Chill just on the outer V crease. 
- Honey Pot on the inner half of the lid
- Coffee Date and Chocolate Martini on the outer V
- lastly I took Poodle and Cutie Patootie on my inner corner with the Too Faced Love Light in Blinded by The Light. I found the highlight to be more micro shimmer and subtle as opposed to the instagram bold highlight - which is perfect for those girls who love a more natural look. I put a bit of this on my inner corner and a bit on my brow bone and it just accentuates it slightly. Oh and I also put a bit above my lip as well to give it a poutier look.
- I finished it up with my regular Clio liner that is my ride or die and the new Ardell Faux Mink Lashes in 811

On the lips I have Medium Cool 1 on the lips in the Right pic, and Wine Not? on the Left Pic. I am so obsessed with Wine Not? it's like a grey toned dark berry color, it's so unlike anything I've ever tried!


If you're interested in the rest of the products used for my look - check out the picture below as it lists everything! For specifics, please do not hesitate to ask!

Until next time, XO - M.
