Autumn Bride Cliona Casey
Autumn Bride Cleona Casey’s wedding was set against the Backdrop of autumnal gold and amber at Mount Juliet’s golf resort in Kilkenny, the landscape was magnificent, and the perfect setting for Cleona’s fabulous auburn hair and green eyes!….Cliona and Bridesmaids Rose Treanor, Alanna White and Monica Gilbert getting tucked into some bubbly.
Cleona’s complexion was fair with pink tones.
I applied Armani Luminous Silk Foundation No3.
To awaken the center of her face I highlighted with YSL Touché Éclat highlighter Pen. Dotting along the top of the cheekbone and down each side of her nose dabbing a little on the chin and center of her forehead, patting the Touché Éclat into place with my fingertips.
Before Powder I applied Carmel Cream Blush by Balm to the apple of Cleona’s cheeks. Trapping blush beneath powder ensures the bride will blush for the whole day!!..I set Foundation and blusher with MAC Mineralized Powder.
With Sculpting Kit No2 from Makeup Forever I contoured the hallows of Cleona’s cheeks with an angle brush.
(Tip …..When contouring, suck in your cheeks and shade the hallows of the cheekbones, its important to create a crescent shape from the diddle of the ear swooping under the cheek rather than a straight line. Colour in place, gently mold in circular motions with a flat Brush
Keeping with autumnal colours, I once again applied blusher to the apple of Cleona’s cheeks this time using the powder blush Melba by MAC.
Eye shadows purples, pinks, bronze’s and gold’s all work well with green eyes. At the trial we tried both, first Purples and pinks and then Bronzes and gold’s, Clona plumed for the latter rich autumnal shades. The shades I used Bronze, Rice Paper, Goldmine, and Embark all by MAC. I finished her eyes with Coffee Eyeliner and Zoom Lash Mascara also by MAC.
I brushed up Cleona’s eyebrows and sculpted with the Auburn Brow Kit by Youngblood.
Last but not least Brown is the new red when it comes to this look! I outlined Cleona’s lips with Chestnut lip liner by MAC and the beautiful Clarins Spicy Cimmamonn in the Joli rouge range
