When it comes to choosing your wedding make up, the bride needs to think out of the box. With so many different trends, styles and colours available, a bride can easily become confused. Yet, it is not all about looking unique or being different compared to your other friends. It is more about making a statement about yourself and that should be the basis of all your wedding make up and accessories.
Most of the brides today have a traditional and easy big day planned, except for some of the brides who are daring and like to create a statement on the big day by going for something out of the box. If you’re one of those who likes to maintain everything very simple and restrained, then going for a big bold bridal makeup look especially for your big day would be the best choice. Even if you’re going for a traditional look, make sure that you also try to wear something glamorous and chic.
The most basic of all bridal makeup looks is a traditional white or off-white look. This may either be accessorized with black pearl hair gems or a pearl chandelier. Black and pearl always complement each other and look extremely elegant. There are so many variations in the shades of black and pearl as well as in the types of pearls used in white wedding makeup and you can choose something that goes well with almost any skin tone and complexion.
Another classic bridal makeup looks is the black and smokey eye look. This time, you need to go with waterproof black matte lipstick that is lip lining and eyeliner. To complete it, you can go for eye lashes and a bit of a smokey eye shadow. For a daytime wedding makeup look, you can consider something smoky and warm like brown smudged mousse. To give a nighttime look, a sexy glittering black liner and some sexy highlighters would also look great.
For many brides, their bridal makeup looks usually consists of a beautiful natural looking makeup done in sheer or semi-shimmering powder. The color palette should include neutral shades for foundation and lipstick along with some dramatic colors to finish of your entire look. You can achieve such a versatile look by choosing nude lips, a hint of shimmer and some light bronzer under the eyes. A beautiful blusher and matching lipstick will add more definition to your face as well as accentuate your cheekbones.
Most brides prefer a totally bare look on their big day and this could be achieved by using loose powder with no eye shadow applied. A powder blusher placed on the bridge of your nose and lightly dabbing the color onto your cheeks will look absolutely gorgeous. Other popular wedding makeup looks for the brides include an elegant look using sheer eyeliners, chandelier eye shadow and a little bit of black mascara. There are many other alternatives that you can use to make your bridal makeup looks unique and special. Experiment with different shades and keep an open mind because as you can see, it’s completely up to you!
