What I used

Temptu airbrush system

Here in Austin, TX the heat is amping up into the 100’s! When the weather get’s like this, airbrushing with a silicone based foundation is key for longevity. Anytime I am doing wedding makeup in the heat, using the Temptu airbrushing system is my go-to. It creates a flawless look and stays put for for-ev-er despite sweat, tears, and other potential make-up meltdowns.

Foundation: Temptu airbrush system

Skin Correction: Face Stockholm blue corrector (undereyes) and Face Stockholm Red Corrector (for blemishes)

Powder: Koh Gen Do HD powder.

Brows: Anastasia Beverly Hills eyebrow Kit

Eyes:  Pressed Nars KAUAI (lighter shade) onto full lower eyelid then contoured eyes with Shiseido Eye Color Bar (middle row far left brown shade). For definition I  smudged the Jour Cosmetics Cream Eyeshadow Crayon in Abstract along the top and bottom outer lashline then used the Jane Iredale Black/brown eyeliner pencil on the upper and lower waterline. To finish the look, I used Ardell Lashes in #116 then topped them with the Diorshow mascara in black.

 

LIPS

For the lips I lined and covered the entire lip with the Makeup Forever Aqua lip liner in 1C and then went over that with the Laura Mercier lipgloss in Bare Peach.

 

HAIR

For hair I added the Aquage sea salt spray to give her very fine hair some texture and then dried her hair with a blow dryer. Then I parted her hair to one side and slicked it down so that the curls at the bottom would be more pronounced. For her curls, I used the Nume 3 in 1 curling wand. I love this curling wand, I use it every day!

But more than makeup…I think its her smile and just who she is that makes her the most beautiful!
