All the products you need to recreate this look!

It's literally been years since I posted a makeup tutorial, but since doing reviews all the time can be boring and I needed to do a test run for a wedding I'm in this week, I thought, why not?

Whether you're a bride, a bridesmaid, or simply a wedding guest, I think that this look could apply. For a wedding, you want to look fresh, youthful and above all, natural. Leave the raccoon eyes and heavy bronzer at home ladies!

For this Face Of The Day, I was inspired by the look of fresh peonies. To start off, you need to create a nice base, covering up any redness, blemishes and shine:

To do the eyes, I applied:
  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion all over lids
  • Strange on the brow bone
  • Burnout all over the lid, concentrating more color on the bottom half of my upper lid, up to the crease
  • Nooner on the outer third of my eye, fanning above the crease and blending from the outer edge inwards
  • Trick on the outer third of my eye, fanning this time in the opposite direction, from inner to outer edge
  • Trick along the entire lower lashline
  • Nooner on the outer third of my lower lashline
  • Dust dabbed just on the lid center

After the shadow, I applied:
