60's retro eye makeup

I have always loved the timeless Mod Retro’s 60’s makeup look; bold strip eyelashes, strong winged out black eyeliner, pale eye shadow with a strong smoky crease, and a pale pink lipstick. This sultry makeup look has been channel by celebrities, models on the runway and now beautiful spring brides. Spring weddings always seem to bring out soft feminine makeup looks for me.  I love to work with shades of pale pink on my brides with eye shadows, blushes, and lipsticks.

Bridal Mod, my makeup twist on 60’s Mod for brides, exudes spring with its delicate and ladylike color palette that compliments all brides and destination brides for their wedding. My glamxurious five Bridal Mod pale pink lipstick colors:

  • L’OREAL Colour Riche Lipstick *Pink Passion
  • Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil *Roman Holiday
  • Bobbi Brown Lipstick *Pale Pink No 21
  • Vincent Longo Lipstick *Baby Pink
  • MAC Viva Glam Lipstick *Gaga

Smokin' hot for W-day

All brides love a smoky eye on their wedding day. But as popular as this look is, it’s still one of the hardest makeup looks to pull off. A smoky eye doesn’t always have to be achieved with black eye shadow. You can create this look with dark brown, grey, blue, green and purple eye shadows. For a destination bride who has never worn a smoky look, this could be a disaster. Below you will find my tips for creating a smoky glamxurious eye application that any first timer can achieve.

Choose a color of cream eye shadow. I like to use my fingers to apply the cream shadow by patting the color only on the eyelid. A flat stiff brush also works well.

Now select the same color in a powder using a stiff eye shadow and pat over the cream eye shadow. This technique will help the color to stay as well as give the eye shadow a bolder eye color.

With a crease brush I like to use a shimmer bronzer and blend only in the crease in a windshield wiper motion.

With my fingers, I like to pat a vanilla pigment on the brow bone to use as a highlighter.

Using a cream eyeliner in black, line the top and bottom of the eye using a slanted angle brush. Use a black kohl pencil in the bottom rim/waterline. Before the cream liner dries, go back and smudge. If you use a black eye shadow to smear it with, it really gives it a smoked-out look. Using a hard eye shadow brush apply the black eye shadow in the outer part of the eyes stopping at the crease.

The last step is to apply 3-4 coats of carbon black mascara and/or black eye lashes.

The smoky eye is a simple and fabulous look that doesn’t have to be a nightmare for any bride on her wedding.
