Wedding Blog: My Bridal Makeup Peg

It is no secret that I will do my own makeup on my wedding day. Truth be told, there are a lot of people who does not support this idea of mine. One makeup artist told me that people have gotten used to my makeup technique that my wedding makeup will most probably look ordinary to most people who knew me. So, I changed my makeup technique to prevent this from happening. :) That's one dilemma off the list. For other, I will be too stressed to have the courage to put on makeup on my big day. Ironically, putting on makeup will surely be my stress buster on that day. I remembered when I was in law school, I would put on makeup while studying to calm myself. Hence, the name of this my lucid intervals. :) The people who have been very supportive on my idea of doing a DIY wedding makeup are none other than -- my fellow beauty bloggers. :) I have to thank Liz Lanuzo for her previous post on wedding makeup which made me realize that I should do it myself. 

The recently concluded wedding of Heart Evangelista inspired me even more. I am a self confessed fan of her makeup artist , Albert Kurniawan. The way he does eye makeup is impeccable. When I saw, Heart's makeup on her wedding both in Balesin and here in Manila, I immediately knew what my makeup peg will be. :) Oo ako na ang feelingera!! Kiber naman, diba? hehe 

Here are a few photos of her look:

 Amazing noh? From her eye makeup to her lip color. Everything is perfection. For fellow future brides out there, I dare you to research on your pegs and do not entirely rely on your makeup artist on your wedding day. Know what looks good on you like knowing your YLLB lipstick will be  big help. Just a quick kwento, I saw a bride on my facebook newsfeed and I was taken aback on her makeup. She looked darker and washed out because of that pale lipstick. :( Brides- to- be out there, invest on a good makeup artist (kung mayaman lang ako I will definitely hire Alert Kurniawan or Mickey See) because no matter how good your photographers or videographers are, no amount of editing or photoshop can fix a makeup gone wrong. Okay? Shucks ako ata ang kinabahan sa babala kong ito. Haha Well, this prompted me to practice and do more research for my wedding makeup. I need to find good products that will bring out my inner glow. May ganon! So, here is my trial makeup (unfinished look,,, products not properly blended pa). { Of course, I will not show the final look until my big day!}
Products Used:
MAC Studiofix Foundation in NC35
Palgantong Theatrical Powder in Original Beige
FS Foundation in Organza (I realized that my color is in between Chino and Organza)
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW25
Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in Neutralizer
NYC Bronzer in Sunny
I picked a random blush in my makeup drawer and I got the Colour Collection Blush and Bronzer in Sweetheart. I mixed both shades and I got a very flattering color. :)
UD Naked palette 1 and NAKED Basics Palette
Jordana Eye Pencil in Continuous Almond
Rimmel Scandaleyes in Bulletproof Beige for highlighting the inner corner of my eyes

Holika Holika Brown Eyeliner
For the lips, I mixed two shades : Loreal Barely Moka and Happy Skin Shut Up

  1. SIS!

    1. I agree, this is my go-to events foundation.

  2. Hi sis!!! <3 these are my HG products :)

    Primer - Smashbox Photo Finish pero I heard the best daw si Hourglass Veil :)
    Foundation - Estee Lauder Double Wear (I swear by this product, transfer-proof kaso nga nga sa flash photog!) :)
    Lipstick - Lime Crime Velvetine (kaso medyo drying sa lips) or NYX Soft Matte Lips Creams (Soooooo many color options and not drying at all, also kiss-proof) :)

  3. Since you already have the Estee Lauder Double wear, which I believe is one of the longest lasting foundations, I would advise that you get an illuminating primer to really bring out the bridal glow! :) I have the Laura Mercier radiance primer and I would mix it with ELDW to get that radiance. Of course one problem sa ELDW ay ang flashback on camera, I would solve that with a bronzer, but not a straight up sculpting powder, something only a step or two darker from my skin tone. For lipstick naman, Just stain your lips with your fave lipstick and blot it until you've built up the pigment, any lippie if fine, I think.

    Hope this helped :D

  4. You did not list a setting spray here, but I'm sure you plan to use one. I really swear by Urban Decay All-nighter :)

  5. Creating makeup for wedding is very important. Because it is most precious moment in everyone life.

  6. Heart is sooooo pretty! You picked the right peg! Yeah! And as far as I can see, you'll do (you are doing) fine at your wedding! You can do it, girl! ^^


  7. If I could use one word to describe Heart's bridal looks, it would be MALINIS. I mean that in a good way. Brides are supposed to look radiant and glowing, so she was able to achieve that flawlessly with her makeup. Even her smokey/sultry eyes look pristine, because she keeps the dark shadows close to the lashline. Hindi nagmumukhang panda. You did a good take on the look, especially in choosing colors.

    Nice meeting you on Saturday, Donnarence! I wish you the best of luck in the rest of your wedding planning. <3

  8. Ayy ang ganda pala talaga ni Heart. Ang ganda ng makeup nya, lalong na-enhance ung natural beauty nya!! I wonder what lipstick she's wearing. Ang ganda!!! And of course ang ganda ng peg mo dito! Parang nag-bright ung eyes dahil dun sa nude eyeliner! :D

  9. Sis! Fan din ako ni Albert Kurniawan. Ang ganda tlga ng makeup style niya. If you follow his ig, you'll see his client's final looks. Ganda talaga!
