lovely bride, jieun, came to me requesting to make her eyes appear bigger for her wedding. a common request for monolid eyes. she was such a sweet and cute bride to work with! and it just so happens that she’s a huge shu uemura fan. using some shu uemura matte black eyeshadow and some black painting liner, we were able to achieve the makeup look that she was looking for. she also requested rosy, pink lips with gradations of a deeper pink from the inside of the lips fading out to soft pink to the outer parts of her lips. such an angelic look. i used the shu uemura sunset gold palette (eyeshadows and pink blush) – my go-to bridal palette – to complete the look. for the skin i used shu uemura face architect smoothing foundation in light honey.
