Recreate Morenike’s Traditional Wedding Look | Stella’s Addiction

LoveweddingsNG Traditional Wedding Morenike and Dayo16

Remember Morenike, we featured pictures from her traditional wedding last week. We loved Morenike’s traditional makeup so much that we got her makeup artist – Stella of Stella’s Addiction to give us the 411 on how she created this look. So if you’d like to recreate this look, read and follow the steps below

Tip 1: When I work with glitter as I did for Morenike, I always start with the eyes. This way after the eye shadow and glitter application, I can simply wipe off fall out (eye products that fall from the eyes and land on the cheeks and under eye area) before starting with the foundation application.

I filled in her brows with Dip brow Pomade from Anastasia Beverly Hills* (lasts longer than pencil and are smudge & waterproof, perfect for a bride) and then brushed then through with a spooly to evenly distribute the product.


First up on the eyes is eye shadow primer, I used the one from Peggy Sage Paris*. I applied the primer all over her eye lids and blended it up towards her brows. Next I applied an eye shadow base; Magnolia Makeup Eye Fix * and blended it just like like I did the primer.

On her eye lid, I applied Gothic Revival eye shadow from Magnolia Makeup* all over her eye lid tapping it into the eye shadow base for maximum colour pay off. In her crease I applied Unearthly and Puddin eye shadow in her crease & outer crease for definition both from Magnolia Makeup*.

Over the Gothic Revival, I applied glitter in Champagne Wishes with Clearly Liquid glitter base, both from Lit Cosmetics then I highlighted her brow bone with Inglot DS 463 eye shadow.

I lined her upper and lower lash line with gel eye liner from Zaron in Jazz. For her lashes I combined Amazing Shine human hair lashes in #46* with Medium individual flares, applied with tweezers* and clear lash adhesive*

After I finished her eyes I wiped off the fall out and applied a thin layer of Milk of magnesia all over her face to help keep her oily skin matte and keep her foundation on her face all day.

Then I applied RCMA foundation* in MB5 all over her face, highlighted with SH6 and contoured her face with MB8. I set her highlight with Ben Nye Luxury powder in Banana*, her contour with Cover Girl bronzer and the rest of her face with Zaron mattifying powder. On her cheeks she has on a light layer of Fashion Fair blush in Plum Rich.


I lined he lips with Zaron lip liner in Red Vines* and filled them in with Magnolia Makeup Velour Lips in Vavavoom*.
