We've gotten tons of requests for a Bridal Makeup how-to for darker skins, so we called our friend Sophie in and did a gorgeous look on her. Here's how!
Step 2: Next, apply our Mineral Eyeshadow in 'Elegant' to the inner corners of the eyes, as well as under the brows for a highlight.
Step 4: Grab your waterproof eyeliner (we're using our Cream Eyeliner in 'Black') and line the upper lash line. Apply the liner to the lower waterline as well, blending the color onto the lower lash line.
Step 5: Apply one coat of mascara, and apply some false lashes! We used our Studio Lash Collections in 'Dramatic'.
Step 6: Apply our Mineral Infused Face Primer for long lasting makeup. Then, apply your foundation and concealer to even out the skin tone and hide any blemishes or dark circles. We used our Flawless Finish Foundation in 'Almond', our Complete Coverage Concealer in 'Medium', and we set the look with our Studio Pressed Powder in 'Caramel' just on the areas that needed to be shine free. Lastly, we applied our Baked Blush in 'Rich Rose' to the apples of the cheeks, blending the color back into the hairline.

How to Rock the Punk TrendHow to Rock the Punk Trend
THURSDAY, MAY 16, 2013
This years Met Ball was FILLED with punk themed looks! Some of our favorite celebs rocked the hard-core look, while a few experienced some Sid Vicious faux-pas. Our favorite look was Cara Delevingne- the perfect smoky eye. It was just glamorous and edgy enough for a Ball, but wasn't cartoon-ish. Here's how to get her look:
Step 1: Start by applying our Cream Eyeshadow in 'Smoke' to the lids using your fingers. Don't be afraid to get messy with this look- the edgier the better.
Step 3: Apply two coats of mascara to finish the look. Apply lashes for a glamorous look, or leave as is for an authentic take on this grungy look!
What did YOU guys think of the makeup on the Met Ball carpet this year?
