Carrie Underwood's Southern Wedding: All About The Makeup

American Idol winner, with a platinum-album voice Carrie Underwood has certainly proved that blondes can have more fun — both on and off stage. Her recent news, however, had nothing to do with her often loud, commanding and gilded vocal chords, but was more focused on her tying the knot in her Southern American element.

Her wedding, held on July 10th at Georgia’s Ritz-Carlton Reynolds Plantation resort, to her beau, the Canadian hockey player Mike Fisher, was a study in French elegance with her Chantilly lace and silk organza Monique Lhuillier gown. Her “huge” wedding (as she tells People Magazine) was a typical spare-no-expense event, but has been heralded by several wedding attendees as being “non stuffy.”

As far as her makeup, aren’t you dying to know the deets as to how she managed to look radiant, sweat-proof and celeb worthy?

Melissa Schleicher, Underwood’s professional makeup artist, used the TEMPTU airbrush makeup system to get a flawlessly airbrushed look. Now, we have used this sleek, portable and precise system ourselves, and we love the disposable TEMPTU pod that offers a clear window through which you can see your foundation tint. All you need is the sprayer system (which is ergonomically designed, and looks as svelte as an Eames chair or an Apple product) and the pod that contains the foundation that best matches your skin tone.

She also used colors from the Too Faced Eye Kit, especially the champagne and shimmery tones that make the eyes “pop.” To make her face essentially bride-worthy and as captivating as Elizabeth Taylor’s face during her first 1950 wedding to Conrad “Nicky” Hilton, she used MAC’s blush in the aptly named Pink Swoon. This blush, with its bubblegum pink tint boasts a “sugar and spice” feel and has an almost virgin quality about it — with a twist of the mischievous.

We have no details on the lip color – yet – but will fill in the blanks as soon as we get that information.
