PART 2: Attempting Bridal Make-up

We're back at The Face Place Institute where I recently completed the make-up artistry course. I subscribed to one of the many short courses the school often runs during the summer. The six-week crash course was quite intense and we got hands-on pretty quickly. One of my first, full-glam looks was a bridal beat, and there was little room for blunders. Though I was merely practising on a model, I had to acknowledge the basic tenets of bridal beauty and pretend I was doing this #IRL. I knew I wanted a timeless look with a splash of glam, so I scoured Google for some inspo. Armed with a plan, an arsenal of trusty make-up products, and a model who allowed me to do my thing, I attempted my first bridal look. Here's what I came up with.

Let me know what you think!
