For this Wednesday morning’s post I’ve decided to recreate the look of a beautiful bride of 1967, Priscilla Presley. Her wedding day make-up has become iconic and been made into a 1000 other tutorials in her honour. There even exists barbie dolls of the two of them on their wedding day!
Priscilla had beautifully defined full eyebrows on her wedding day. They were obviously shaped to go with the fashion of the 1960s, and look absolutely ridiculous on a blonde but they were proud and loud and so are these in this tut. I’ve used Mac Carbon eyeshadow to fill my brows.
I then placed a white shadow (Stila Chinois) from the top of my brow all the way down to my crease. You can use any neutral/white shadow for this. Please pardon the cake-face.
After which I coated my bottom lashes with mascara, added a nude kohl kajal pencil to my waterline using a Rimmel Scandaleyes waterproof pencil and then used the same liquid liner below my waterline to create a double flick cat-eye.
For the finishing touches I placed YDK from my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette on my lids only. I lined my lips with Mac Smolder as well as adding a nude gloss to them. And finally the lashes were added! I don’t think Priscilla would be Mrs Presley without them. Mine are a R30 pair from Dischem.
If only I had a black wig! Then it would be the best halloween costume eveeeeerrrrrr!
