Bridal with a pop of colour – May 2011 FOTD Challenge Day 3

Todays look was requested by Bini of Beeneelicious. This is my interpretation of Bridal with a pop of colour, and is without a doubt the most popular bridesmaid makeup I do for daytime weddings. I have decided to go for an understated, reasonably natural look, with just a hint of purple along the lashline. This look would normally have false lashes, however my eyes are a little irritated at the moment, so I left them off.

I have adapted the products I would normally use as I did not want to unpack my kit, so I have used products from my personal stash.

Sadly the lighting was not my friend today, and my poor little point and shoot camera struggled to capture the colours.
