Whether you’re planning to get married, attend a wedding, or just want to feel extra polished this season, it’s the perfect time-of-year to ‘spring’ into a fresh makeup routine.

The inspiration for this easy-to-follow tutorial came from our latest campaign. Bronzed lids and bright pink lips have set our hearts aflutter! To achieve this look, we used pretty palettes from one of our favorite vintage-inspired beauty brands, theBalm.

Follow these 7 simple steps to achieve a wedding-worthy look that will have everyone saying “I do love your makeup!”

What You’ll Need:

Step 1: Blank Canvas


Start with a freshly prepped face. On, Arielle, a Customer Care Analyst, we’ve applied a gel moisturizer that’s fast absorbing and a foundation that matches her natural complexion.

Steps 2 & 3: Luck Be a ‘Lid-y’

Using a bronze shadow stick as a base, apply the product to the lid from the lash line to the crease. Use your fingertips to blend up & out.

With the Natural Instincts Eyeshadow Palette, intensify the the base color with the golden eyeshadow shade ‘Seductive’. Pat the color into place using a brush or your fingertips.

 Steps 4 & 5: ‘Crease’ to Exist


Continuing with the Natural Instincts palette, use the fluffier side of the brush to pick up the light brown eyeshadow color ‘Sultry’. For best results, use windshield wiper motions with the brush to blend the color softly into the crease and outer-V portion of the lid.

Next, use the angled side of the brush as an eyeliner by sweeping the dark brown shade ‘Sleek’ along the upper lash line. For added definition, slightly dampen the brush before applying the product.

Step 6: ‘Face Time’


Next, use a powder brush to apply a golden bronzing shade to the face. Place the bronzer in areas where the sun would naturally hit. Focus on the contours of the cheekbones, temples, and jawline. Tip: When applying bronzer, simply use a forward & backward ‘3’ motion on either side of the face.

Apply a mauve-hued blush to add a pop of color to the apples of your cheeks. Then, using your fingertips or a brush of your choice, apply a highlighter. Concentrate on placing it on the tops of the cheekbones, brow bone, down the bridge of the nose, and along the hairline to create an illuminating halo effect (the perfect trick for looking downright radiant in photographs)!

Step 7: ‘Matte’ About You


Top things off with the perfect pink pout! We love the In No Time Matte Liquid Lipstick because of its long-wearing formula. There’s truly no time for touchups when you’re having fun on the dance floor! Evenly apply the pink shade from the center of the lips outward.

To bring the look together, apply a coat of your favorite mascara. To insure that your makeup stays looking flawless late into the night, use a finishing spray to lock everything into place.

Simply Stunning!
