Wedding make up is one of the most crucial elements of your wedding day. From subtle smoky eye shadows to perfectly highlighted skin and even a little red lipstick, here is everything you’ll need to take you to that wonderful day: Bridal Makeup Basics. From foundations to lash liners and eye shadows, two lipsticks and enhancers, there’s everything you need for the perfect wedding make up look.
Eyebrow and Eye shadow. Whether your hair and makeup artist are working off of a photo shoot or custom design, your bridal makeup will be more convincing with the help of the right eyeliner and eye shadow. Choose from bronze to metallic colors and neutral to bright tones, and pair it with a mascara that won’t clog your pores. Eyebrows can be drawn with pencil, dry-tipped eyeshadow brush or a finger, and layered with powder makeup. For the best effect, use a concealer and highlight on the eyelids, too.
Lashes. A beautiful, full, beautiful lash line will bring your eyes alive for your wedding makeup. For daytime weddings, keep your style simple, with either thin lashes or long, drawn ones. For evening or nighttime ceremonies, you can add glitter, volume and length to your lashes with liquid liner or pencil. Remember, your wedding makeup artist will be the one to apply your lashes correctly so make sure he or she is comfortable with it!
Bridal Makeup Basics. Your wedding venue will require special wedding makeup looks that might even require you to rent a tent, so here are a few basic looks you can get away with: When your wedding venue has a grand entrance, like a spectacular ballroom, you can get a voluminous veil that billows as you walk in the doors. The hem of this long veil is usually lined with satin or charmeuse and ends at the very top of your bridal gown.
A modern alternative to a full veil is a short, satin chiffon creation. This is an excellent choice for a daytime wedding makeup idea, especially when you’re wearing an updo. If your hair is short enough to pull the chiffon over your shoulder, this is a great option for you. Just remember that a traditional veil is always an excellent choice for a wedding makeup look, whether you’re wearing your wedding gown or your own bridal jewelry.
These are some of your wedding makeup ideas to get you started. Remember to ask your bridal makeup artist for his or her opinion about which products you should use and what items you should avoid. She or he will be able to give you invaluable advice about every aspect of wedding makeup. Good luck on your special day!
