One of my best friends is getting married in almost exactly one month and we did her makeup trial over the weekend! She told us how she wanted something light with a hint of pink on her eyes, with a black semi-thick liner. We smoothed over her face, added some bronzer and blush, & finished her face off with a light pink lipstick!
Can’t wait to see her in her dress on the big day!
Sometimes people wonder how much concealer they should be using, or how much foundation is too much foundation. Well, this all varies person to person depending on skin type. But regardless, you never want to use too much concealer because it can crease throughout the day, and you don’t want to pack on the foundation and have it look like you have no pores.
Below is a snapshot of how much face product I typically use. My moisturizer is Belif Aqua Bomb and requires a very little amount to hydrate. My face primer is Smashbox’s Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer which also requires a very small amount – you don’t want your face too feel wet! For my Foundation and Concealer I use Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation and the HD Concealer by Make Up Forever.
Primer and Foundation usually require the most product because they cover the entire face with equal coverage everywhere. Unlike concealer which is only for small areas and primer which does not require full coverage!
One of my favorite looks is a matte smoky eye and a deep red lip. Pairing this with an AMAZING black and nude dress and a killer smile just makes it absolutely perfect!
On this lovely lady I used Smashbox’s Full Exposure Palette, Too Faced’s Boudoir Eyes Soft & Sexy Eye Shadow Palette, Smashbox Black Jet Set Waterproof Liner and Ardell Lashes. And on her lips is Maybelline’s Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color (Divine Wine).
How gorgeous does she look!?
In case anyone was wondering what we use on a daily basis, I listed out some of our favorite products below!
The best part about doing makeup is seeing how happy the person is with the final product. We love seeing our brides shine on their special day, they deserve it!

If you haven’t tried the True Cream Aqua Bomb by belif, I highly suggest you do so ASAP! This gel/cream is by far my favorite skin product. It’s super light weight and doesn’t have a thick or creamy texture like most face moisturizers. It’s more of a gel-based cream that refreshes and hydrates your skin while providing a cooling sensation. It’s the perfect morning face moisturizer to use after you wash your face, because that cooling sensation helps wake you up and feel rejuvenated for the day!
It also works great for minimizing pores and improving skin elasticity. And don’t worry, the True Cream Aqua Bomb works for any type of skin whether you have oily, dry, or combination skin. Don’t take our word for it, try it out!
