Bridal Trial - Soft & Natural

I had the pleasure of doing my first ever bridal trial with a friend of mine. I'd like to thank Kelli for letting me take part in her special day! She is absolutely gorgeous without makeup, so her specific instructions were to look as natural as possible. Thankfully, my best friend is a photographer so she was able to take a lot of pictures! :D

Before picture
We approached the bridal trial by putting two different eye looks before the face. The right eye (shown in the picture) is partially made up - and is the more dramatic eye look.
After picture ( w/ complete face; showcasing the other side of the eye w/ a more natural look)
Final Look
Ultimately, Kelli decided to go towards the most natural route, with soft browns & bronze as her pop of color. Towards the end which we did not photograph, we added a little gloss to the middle of her lower lip to add extra plump. Here are the products used:

Nivea Moisturizer
ELF eyebrow set Medium
MAC Strobe Cream 
Graftobian Corrector Palette in Muted Green (cancel out the rosacea)
Graftobian Soft Orange (conceal undereye)
 Graftobian Hi Def Creme Foundation in Bombshell & Prima Donna
Graftobian Pro Setting Powder in Light
MAC Fix+ (applied to whole face to set makeup)
MAC Brule & All that Glitters (lid)
MAC Soft Brown & MAC Cork (crease & outer-v)
MAC Jest (browbone)
MAC Embark & Espresso (line upper and lower lid)
MAC Vanilla Pigment (inner tear duct)
Diorshow Mascara
Ardell Demi Wispies (applied w/ DUO lash glue)
MAC Blush Melba
Dior Amber Diamond
OCC Lip Tar in Hush
Revlon Pink in the Afternoon

Until Next Time! :)
