Julianne Carlucci, Makeup Artist for Three Custom Color Specialists

Curious about her Bridal Must-Haves this season? Here are the products by Three Custom Color Specialists that Julianne can’t live without:

Crème Concealer Foundation
Talk about a multi-tasker! I love this product as a spot Concealer (it’s concentrated and can cover any blemish!) or sheered out with moisturizer to create a smooth, flawless canvas. I also use this product as an eye lid primer before applying eye shadow for extra staying power. The Concealer Palette gives me all ten shades so I can really customize the perfect shade for brides of all skin tones.

Opaline Crème Eye Definer- This liner stays put throughout the entire wedding day; from morning pictures to evening toasts. It is also great for those emotional, teary eyed brides because it is water resistant. Whereas liquid liner is very defined and sometimes too harsh, I use this crème liner for softer definition on the upper eye lid. And, when smudged a bit, you can really see the opalescent sheen which gives the eye a pretty gleam.

Santorini- Packed with color, this rich raspberry shade flatters almost every skin tone and it’s one of my favorite shades in the Three Custom Color collection! This season, many brides are loving a bold lip while keeping the rest of the face natural, but polished.The vibrant color looks beautiful in pictures, and is long-wearing and moisturizing (very important for brides!).

Caramel Rose Lip and Cheek Stain- This earthy rose shade is universal and adds a dewy, fresh and natural flush on every bride. I love it! The pigmented and balmy stain really locks into the skin and stays on all day and it can be worn sheer or built up on for a dramatic look. My best way of applying it: Using your fingers or sponge, apply it to the apples of the cheeks in a circular motion making sure to apply it evenly from apples of cheeks toward your hairline.
