MakeUp Wednesday: Bridal Makeup Part 2
Hello lovelies, hope your week is going great, here is the concluding part of this topic. Hope you enjoy it.
Be a blushing bride with blusher. It can give you a
lovely pop of colour on your cheeks which looks really pretty for
wedding make-up, even if you're not used to wearing it every day. If
you're wearing a pale dress or white, cream or ivory, you'll be able to
wear more colour on your cheeks and lips. There are lots of blushers
on the market, creams, powders, gels and stains - again go for a shade
not too far from your natural pigment. A good tip is to buy a blusher
that is a similar tone to your natural lip colour.
Good make up brushes are really important when applying any make-up, especially on your
wedding day because they'll make your make-up stay on longer and make
application easier. but I recommend investing in the following: a
foundation brush, a concealer brush, a powder brush (can also double up
as a bronzing brush), a tapered eyeshadow blending brush, a flat
eyeshadow brush and a slanted eyebrow or eyeliner brush. Alternatively
buy a brush set.
A good eye make-up tip is to stick to a neutral palette
of eyeshadows and use an eyeshadow primer. After the eye primer, apply a light-coloured shadow all over the eyelid right up to the brow bone. Next, apply a mid-toned eyeshadow such as MAC Wedge all over the
eyelid and into the socket area. If you want more definition, apply a
slightly darker shadow into the eye crease and blend well so there are
no visible lines. Line the eyes using an eyeliner.
Don't forget to use a highlighting shade just below the
brow bone and in the inner corners of your eyes - this really opens
Make sure your eyebrows are well-groomed as they frame your face. If they need shaping or even a tidy-up, try eyebrow threading as this lasts longer than plucking
and you'll have instantly well-groomed brows. It hurts a bit, but no
pain no gain, especially for your wedding!
When thinking about lipstick colours,
you can either go for a shade that enhances your natural lip colour or
a shade that is a little lighter. Line the lips all over with a lip
pencil that is close to your natural lip colour as this will make your
lipstick stay on for longer.
Finish off your look with black mascara - or use brown if
you are very fair. Go for waterproof mascara on your wedding day, just
in case! If you want to add some extra
drama, try using individual false eyelashes just on the outer corners.
To keep your make-up looking good all day, use a
translucent powder or blotting sheets to take away any shine
(especially important before the photos). Take cotton buds for any eye
make-up that needs tidying up, and if a make-up artist has done your
make-up, be sure to have purchased the shade of lipstick they have used
beforehand so you can keep yourself touched up all day.
