A headline like “ Things all brides should have” is certain to catch our attention. In a feature on msn.com brought to us by the knot, the super famous makeup artist to the stars , and go-to cosmetic staple creator, Bobbi Brown have a very insightful list for , get this, ALL brides. That means accessible, affordable and universal tips that all ladies about to say “I do” should consider embracing. Let’s take a look at their list and detail some great ways to achieve these must-haves!
- A pretty décolletage: the neckline whether a deep sweetheart, an asymmetrical one shoulder, or high halter is an undeniable focal point in your overall look. So always follow through your makeup look with a little dusting of bronzer or shimmer to carry out the overall color so that we aren’t seeing 2 different shades from your face to your body. And if you are donning a high neck look, that’ no problem! Play up your shoulders with a luminous lotion or shimmer powder. You’ll look positively glowing…literally!
- A clutch bag: You wouldn’t leave the house with your purse, right? So why should you walk down the aisle without an extra special bag tucked away with those important essential to touch up during the day. Bobbi suggests having one of your Bridesmaids carry the clutch but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t reflect your style for the day. Some of our favorites? Lauren Merkin, BCBG MaxAzria, kate spade and some extra special Judith Leibers courtesy of renttherunway.com.
- A bright smile: Of course! It IS after all the happiest day of your life! So why not show it? To accentuate your greatest feature, Ms. Brown says go for a bright hue instead of a pale/neutral lip. Stick with pinks, roses, and plums that give you a hint of color while still remaining classic and natural. Always take a photo after your makeup consultation as well so that you can be sure the overall makeup look translates from real-life to camera- ready.
The best of the rest? Waterproof mascara, duh! And the most important element to any wedding day tip? Have fun!
