Key tips for wedding makeup
Here’s a step-by-step process on how to get the perfect look on your fabulous day:
Step 1: Primer
Moisturize your skin then apply (The Primed Skin Developer- Kenyn Aucoin ) for radiance and smooth skin.
How To: Apply primer and moisturizer on your face, neck, and décolleté.
Pro Tip: Mixing moisturizer and primer together will save you time.
Step 2: Concealer
A really good concealer is ( IT – COSMETICS) -Bye Bye full coverage concealer. IT covers, highlights and gives you a fabulous look. It’s creamy, high-pigment, and crease-free.
How To: Use concealer to cover blemishes and dark circles. Warm up the formula and then apply with a sponge or using your fingertips.
Step 3: Foundation
For a flawless, hydrating and long lasting look apply (Giorgio Armani – Luminous Silk Foundation ). This liquid foundation fits everyone’s needs and you won’t feel like you’re wearing a ton of heavy makeup.
How To: Use a foundation brush to get the best application and remember a little product goes a long way. Start your application in the center of the face, blending outwards and in a circular motion.
Those that like a dewy look we suggest a little spritz of a Hydrating Mist onto the skin or a sponge with the foundation for that magically dewy finish.
Step 4: Highlighter and Blush
For blush we recommend (Tarte – Cheek Stain) which works wonders for a natural, dewy looking flush; they’re creamy, bleadable and flattering to any skin type.
For the natural bridal glow, we suggest shades natural beauty, flush, exposed or tipsy. Apply directly to the apple of the cheek, blending up and out towards the hairline.
Applying highlighter to the cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, the brow bones and a little to the Cupid ’s bow.
My favorite highlighter is (Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector – in Pearl and Champagne color). This highlighter works well with all shades.
Step 5: Eye Shadow, Liner, and Mascara
1. For a flawless eyelid color use (MAC – Pro Longwear Paint pot in Nude Beige). This highly pigmented, long wearing eyeshadow goes on creamy and dries to a vibrant finish. Use highlight color or cream eyeliner pencil to the inner corner of the eye and lower water line to lighten and brighten your eyes.
Tip: warm up the product on the back of the hand before applying.
2. Apply the Tarte -Eyeliner Pencil in Brown along the lower lash line, and smudge with a small brush for a softer look.
Tip: warm up the liner on the back of the hand before applying.
3. Using (Anastasia Brow Definer Brow Pencil) to color in and define your eyebrows.
Tip: Brush brows up and outwards with a brow brush
4. Lastly, volumize and lengthen lashes with the Blinc Mascara .
Tip: Apply in a zigzag motion to coat every single lash. Repeat for fuller lashes.
Step 6: Lips
Effortless, soft, sexy and natural LIPS
Use (Laura Mercier- Bare Blush-Lip Gloss) for a sexy, natural and high-shine look. Work great on all skin tones. For a liitle more color in your gloss apply (Chanel – Rouge Coco Gloss).
For a more pigment color to your lips apply (Tarte-Lipsurgence- Natural Matte Lip Stain) If you prefer a more matte color on your lips.
