Hi my name is Marcella and I'm a makeup artist with Unbridled Beauty. I'm here to show you what makeup to wear with white dresses. When I think of a white dress I think of Bohemian white dresses by the beach in the Summer which of course, makes me think of bronze glowing and natural beauty. So let me show you how to create that look. Here are a few things that you'll need. First of course to be bronzed you need a bronzer, a cream highlighter to create those contours, a honey gold eye shadow with enough iridescence but no glitter, a black eyeliner to give the eyes a little bit of a sultry look, some black mascara, cream blush for that pop of color and last but not least a gold toned lip gloss. So let's get started. Once you have a light base on to cover any skin redness and of course, your SPF as well as some concealer, you are ready to begin. Take your bronzer and apply it to the high points in the face where the sun would naturally kiss your skin. With your cream highlighter accent the tops of your cheekbones, temples, inner corners of the eyes and right under the eyebrows. With a fluffy brush with long loose bristles, take some honey colored gold eye shadow and lightly dust over your lid. By using this type of brush we ensure you're layering on color lightly. Keep color to the lid only and blend slightly above the crease. With your pinky finger you can lightly place some of that color on the outside and inside corner of your bottom lashes. To make the eyes pop, take your black eyeliner and line the inside rim of your eyes. Follow with a generous coat of mascara. Make sure to focus on the top lashes and only the outermost corner of the bottom lashes. Next, dab your finger in your cream blush and apply to the apples of the cheeks. Blend backwards into the rest of your cheekbone. Lastly apply your lip gloss and follow the natural shape of your lips. You are now bronzed and beautiful. And this is what makeup to wear with a white dress. Thanks for watching.
