Hello Brides! There’s nothing more important than your dress and groom but let’s not forget about your bridal makeup look. Makeup can be a scary world with so many products to choose from. There are thousands of make up artists as well that are out for your business. So how do you choose?
If you’re a low maintenance kind of bride you may want to do your own make up. There are a lot of great products on the market that you can use that are reputable for long lasting. Look for Laura Mercier, MAC or even some drug store brands like Maybelline or Cover Girl. If you’re on a budget the cheaper make up can be made to last long if you use a primer under it and a pore eraser. We love Maybelline’s Baby Skin Pore Eraser. The pore eraser will smooth out your skin so the foundation and powder will give you a flawless, hours of wear look!
A big make up trend we’re seeing this year is the pink eye shadow and monochromatic bridal makeup. By matching your eye lids and lips color you are creating a soft, romantic look. Try letting your eye brows grow in to complete the look – bold brows and glowing skin are always in!
You don’t have to do monochromatic. If you’re a bold statement bride and want your bridal makeup to be colorful then try a red lip! We love orange undertones and a matte lip for this bridal makeup look. It depends on your skin tone but most of the orangey reds are going to compliment you.
Why not try these bridal makeup trends on your own first? If you decide you’re not up for the task then there are plenty of makeup artists who are! It’s also just a fun way to experiment with your look. Get a few of your bridesmaids for a makeup play day and vote on which palettes you love most.
