Wedding FOTD

On the bank holiday Monday which just passed, my cousin got married in a beautiful manor house in Birmingham. The ceremony was lovely and the bride looked stunning. 

On a daily basis I prefer not to wear too much makeup and my daily makeup doesn't really vary. However, I wore quite a bit more than usual for her wedding and I thought I'd share my wedding FOTD:

What I used:

To conceal dark shadows and cover up any redness on my face I used my favourite concealer by Maybelline. Read my full review of this product here

I used the Bourjois Delice de Poudre bronzer in shade 51 on my cheeks and for some slight contouring also. I applied MAC Coygirl blush to the apples of my cheeks and used a Clinique powder in Almond Blossom as a highlight just on the highest points of my cheekbones.

I lined my eyes on the water and tightline with Soap and Glory's Smoulder Kohl and lined above my top lashes with Collection 2000 Fast Stroke liquid liner. I applied the eyelure Naturalites false lashes in 070 and lightly coated my lashes in Benefit's Bad Gal mascara Read my review on Smoulder Kohl here

For my lips I applied NYX matte lip cream in Stockholm and then NYX mega shine lip gloss in Natural over the top.

I think in the future I will try to play around with some eyeshadows to finish the look. I must also become braver in my choice of lip colours! Look out for my everyday FOTD post which I will share with you soon.
