Bridal Makeup- Turning the Ordinary into Glamorous
Posted on February 19 2015
Your special day is quickly approaching and you’re the main attraction. Having the perfect wedding is your goal. This means having a stunning gown and flawless makeup. Whether you wear makeup on a regular basis or just for your special day, with just a few bridal makeup tips you can turn the ordinary into glamorous.
Think of your face like a blank canvas. Whether you are concealing those unwanted blemishes or want to feel beautiful, your makeup should enhance your best features. As a general rule, keeping it simple is best because a little can go a long way.
Before you know it your big day will fly by filled with love and laughter. To eliminate facial touch-ups use an all day foundation with a concealer. If you are applying a loose powder use a matte to target those shiny spots that surface as the day wears on.
For that natural glow, use a shimmer powder. Look for a powder with a very fine shimmer that has no glitter flecks. This will enhance your natural features, giving your skin a dewy appearance. Peach, silver or champagne tone shimmer will highlight fair skin, while gold shimmer will accent tanned skin.
The tears of joy are going to come but smudgy eyes is not an option. Selecting waterproof eyeliner and mascara will minimize those smudge options. To avoid flaking or smearing, apply your mascara after the eyeliner and eye shadow. Implementing the mascara in layers will also intensify your eyes. (Don’t forget the bottom lashes). If you want to curl your lashes, do so before applying mascara to avoid your lashes having the “clumped” look.
Draw attention to your eyes and give them an elegant flair by wearing false eyelashes. Quality is important, mink lashes are recommended because they look the most natural. Dazzling eyes will enhance your glamour, giving you a starlet look.
Let’s lock in those lips. Whether you’re using a natural color or going bold, apply a lip liner of similar shade, to match your lipstick. For maximum coverage outline and shade your lips. Lip liner does not have moisture like lipstick and will adhere to your lips, bonding with the lipstick. Once you apply your lipstick take a tissue (one ply) and put it over your lips. (If you are wearing a bold color add two coats.) Next add a little translucent powder to set the lipstick.
At last your masterpiece is complete and you are ready for your big day. With just a few simple tips you have transformed your ordinary into glamorous. From your foundation to your lipstick your bridal makeup has created the perfect portrait of beauty.
