It’s that time of year again. Wedding season. We LOVE wedding season make up. It’s a great time to play up the brides most natural features and create an enhanced natural make up look. A bride should look like herself, but with enough makeup that she shows up in pictures. Looking back at pictures in five or ten years, brides should say that they felt most beautiful on their wedding day.
And how can we talk about wedding make up without talking about the wedding of the year? No, Kim Kardashian, we’re not talking about you! The real wedding of the year was the Royal Wedding. Kate Middleton is the perfect example of the naturally enhanced bridal makeup look. She was pur elegance when she arrived on her wedding day in her gorgeous Alexander McQueen wedding dress with a six-foot train. Her makeup was kept natural and skin was glowing, her eye makeup featured a grey taupe shadow in the socket and eyeliner under and above the eye. Her blush was the proper rose shade. Kate’s beautiful natural makeup and hair make her a young modern fashion icon! Her Eyes extra smoky with a charcoal effect, everything else, light and fresh. Her brows were well defined and kept full. Her eye make is what helped light up her face.
Her lids were sculpted with a charcoal like color and blended lightly to the crease to meet the natural color that highlighted her brow bone. Her eyes seem to be lined in the same charcoal color and mascara well defines her the bottom lashes. Her skin, fresh and matte with a hint of natural sheen. Her cheeks and lips a beautiful and pink. Because of the light and rich cheek and lip color, it was the prefect balance for her smoky eye. The Duchess kept it Elegant and Fresh!
Airbrushing makeup is a great technique to help with the natural look. It evens out skin tones, and covers any blemishes. Blush color and contours look beautiful over the airbrushed skin. Photographs look great and usually need little post editing.
In addition to a necessary lip color for touch ups, there is one other thing that is a must for wedding day touch ups. A translucent powder that takes away shine, but doesn’t add a caked-on feel of other powders is great. There are varying shades that will match any skin tone.
On the other hand most brides do not want to spend their night worrying about tears ruining their make up or touching up in the bathroom. Every second of your wedding day counts and you shouldn’t miss a moment of it due to touch ups. That’s why Skindinavia invented the Bridal Make Up Finishing Spray.
