Fashion Beauty Panel: Wedding Day Beauty

    This week we had to come up with wedding looks for the Beauty Panel. It could have been a bridal make-up, a look for the guests, bridesmaids etc.
    Now, if I ever get married, I would probably treat myself to a make-up artist. I mean, if there is one day where you can let ta pro be in charge of your face, it's your wedding day(s).
     This is what I would wear if I was a guest. The challenge with this look was to 1) make sure the look is long lasting 2) come up with a look that'll work both during the day and the night, for the party. I decided to do a pastel purple smokey eye. I kept the face fresh and simple and went with good old romantic pink for the lips. The star product for this look is the Make-Up Forever #92 eyeshadow, a gorgeous, vibrant matte purple, with a soft pink undertone (that really shows when blended out). Lovely and loooong lasting. This baby won't crease!

"Doing your makeup for a wedding can be tricky. You want to look soft and pretty for the day during the ceremony and bridal pictures and still manage to look hot during the reception and stand out in all those crazy party photos.
I went with a soft pastel smoky eye. In daylight it looks vibrant and lovely but not too dramatic, while in a party setting it can look sultry and sexy. Pastels are really your best friend for summer weddings. Pair them up with more vibrant colours to tone down the look and make it softer and more romantic.
For my base I used a multitasking moisturizer that I know will keep me matte all day. I made sure I took extra time to apply my face makeup, building coverage gradually and only where needed. Take your time and buff products well and avoid make-up with any sort of SPF in it as it can photograph badly. I used a tiny bit of bronzer to contour and a soft rosy blush on the apples of my cheeks. I chose a lip butter for my lips as it’s easy to wear and it would keep my lips hydrated the whole day; a soft pink lip compliments a smoky pastel eye perfectly.
Don’t forget to bring a powder and a setting spray with you. This will allow you to stay shine free and make your makeup last through the day and make sure you look perfect in each photo.

After doing the look and changing out of the dress, I had to go meet some fellow classmates and help them study for a physics final. Given that I was gonna hang out with my "bros" and it was raining aaaand I have had this urge to wear a Snapback ever since I saw Daura from Snob Affair rocking them, so I took the plunge and wore my purple H&M one. It went well with my purple shadow, I kinda liked how I transition the look from glam to tom-boy chic. Ever since I got that hat, I have been trying to come up with the perfect make-up that would go with it. I think it worked well. :)
