Bright eyes + bow bun tutorial

bright eye bow bun

By now you guys should know that my favorite color is green, so when Linsey over at Face Time Beauty pulled out the eyeshadow & liner for this tutorial, I was positively giddy!  This time we focused on a bright eye so the rest of the face was toned down, and took on the infamous “hair bow”.  If you’re not bold enough to take on a green eye for your wedding, this look would work just as well for a rehearsal dinner or bridal shower (but I say take the leap!!!)

And in case you missed it, check out the first tutorial for bold lips + sexy hair.

You’ll need:

teasing comb/brush
1 hairband
a few bobby pins
and some hair spray to finish

Steps:

step 1 – Gather hair in a pony tail at crown
step 2 – Divide into 5 sections (4 equal and one smaller) and backcomb each one
step 3 – Taking one section at a time roll down and fan out each to create a bun
step 4 – Taking your last section, split it into 3 smaller sections, roll them backward and pin into place to create a bow

You’ll need:

Crème blush (We used: 3 Custom Color’s Ski Bunny)
Light foundation (We used: Make up For Ever HD Foundation)
Mascara (We used: CoverGirl LashBlast)
Translucent Powder (We used: Make Up For Ever HD Powder)
Green Eyeshadow (We used: Chanel Les 4 Ombres in Lilium)
Green Liquid Eyeliner (We used: Pantone in I Dream of Greenie)
Lipgloss (We used: L’Oreal in Coral Tattoo)

Steps:

step 1 – Start with a fresh, clean + moisturized face
step 2 – Apply foundation sparingly and put the crème blush on the apples of the cheeks
step 3 – Dust on translucent powder over the face and on the eyelids
step 4 – Use your finger to dab on lightest green shadow on the top lid and bottom lid (remember: this color sets the tone for the whole eye + the heavier this color is applied the heavier everything else must be, so apply this sparingly)
step 5 – Sweep the slightly darker green shade in the crease (again: make sure it is not applied too heavily)
step 6 – Draw a thin line on the lash line and extend the line upward a tiny bit more from where the natural lash line ends. You don’t want a “cat – eye” but a slight extension.
Step 7 – Apply two coats of mascara on top and one coat on bottom
Step 8 – Lightly dab on soft, pink toned lipstick

Bold lip + sexy hair tutorial

Obviously Pinterest does pretty well with inspiring makeup and hair ideas, so we thought it would be fun to try a couple out to see how they’d do for weddings.  We teamed up with the fabulous team at Face Time Beauty and Mr. Trent Bailey behind the camera to catch all the goods.  This time around for makeup, all the focus was on a bright bold lip, and the hair was a simple sweep to the side to add a little more drama.  The result is pretty spectacular for a bride!
