Beauty Breakdown: Today's Bride Magazine, Soft Cut Crease Bridal Look

This is one of my favourite makeup looks to do for bridal - the makeup is soft, romantic, it photographs well and can be adapted to different eye shapes and skin tones. If you are interested in pursuing work as a MUA in the bridal industry, this is definitely a look you want to master. The idea behind a look like this is that it softly emphasizes all the bride's features. The eyeshadow is actually a cut crease shadow application (just softened), the cheeks are slightly contoured and the lips are an enhanced version of the bride's natural lip colour. Here are the products I used to create this look:



  • Using the Sephora Collection Mixology Palette in Sweet and Warm use a matte shadow close to your client's skin tone and apply all over the eyelid. Create a soft cut crease with one of the matte deep brown shadows and blend this under the lower lash line

  • Press the gold/champagne shimmer shadow on to the lid and brush under the brow.

  • Using the matte black shadow enhance the outer corner of the eye, ensure the shadow blends into the matte brown shadow

  • Apply one coat of Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof Mascara in Very Black

  • Using the Black Duo Lash Glue, apply Velour Lashes in "You Complete Me" or a flared, medium length lash.



Set the makeup with the Urban Decay De-Slick Setting Spray and you are done!
