Wedding face of the day

I recently went to my cousin’s wedding up in Edinburgh, which I was twittering on about for a while in the run up. The whole day was fantastic, I now want more friends and family members to get married so I can go to the wedding – I think they are lovely. Plus the Scottish dancing was a lot of fun – although I am terrible at it.

I haven’t been to that many weddings/civil ceremonies in my life so far, but I love having the chance to get dressed up. Plus the fact that we were staying in the hotel where the wedding was meant that I could wear ridiculously high heels as no walking was required.

Anyway, make-up wise I went for a fairly neutral look as it was day-night, didn’t want anything to dark and heavy in the middle of the afternoon. Below are some pictures and a breakdown of what I used.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation** (shade 4)
No7 Shine Free Make-up Base**
MAC Moisturecover Concealer (NW15)
MAC Mineralise Skinfinish Natural (light) – not pictured

Benefit Coralista Blusher & Dallas Bronzer from the Powderazzi set
MAC Mineralise Skinfinish (By Candlelight)

Urban Decay e/s Primer Potion in ‘sin’
MAC e/s in Naked Lunch (all over lid)
MAC e/s in Satin Taupe (crease)
Bourjois Liner Clubbing** (Brown Vibes)
Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara** (black)

Revlon Lipgloss** (in peach petal/150) – love this, full review coming soon.

Just for fun, here is a picture of the gorgeous view from the wedding – Edinburgh Castle in all it’s glory, including the lesser known phenomenon of sunshine in Scotland.

All products bought by myself, except those marked with a **.

    Thank you so much for all the lovely comments, you are all making me blush (and giving me a big head…!)

    @Ola – I have a bit of a thing about teeth too. Not that I do anything that fancy to mine, but I do think they make a huge difference to how you look 🙂 so it’s not just you.

    @Dani – the castle does look a bit ‘Hogwarts!’ it was an amazing view, especially in the sunshine/sunset!
