Well, not bride but bridesmaid. 🙂
I’ll be playing bridesmaid over a couple of weekends and I have been wondering how to do my makeup so I look good but not better than the bride. After all, its her big day and I don’t want to steal her thunder though I seriously doubt I’d be able to produce that happy bridal glow even with my beloved Guerlain Meteorites highlighter!
That said, I may be leaning towards a neutral look with more dramatic eyes for the night. My makeup skills are such that I cannot produce the smokey eye look effectively bar a look that approximates the smokey eye look. That might be good. I can’t be looking smokier than her 😉
I’d most likely use the Guerlain Illuminating Perfecting Primer which works as a good base for me and then use some powder foundation over it. I know liquid foundation works better so I’m still toying with the idea of using a liquid foundation if I can find one in my collection worth using without botching up. I’d definitely set it all with my Make Up For Ever Loose Powder which I swear by for oil control and for budge-proof makeup.
