If your idea of makeup application involves blushed cheeks and a touch of mascara, then you’re no doubt looking to achieve something similar for your wedding day. There’s also the great debate around whether or not you should hire a makeup artist. The last thing you want is to look like you’ve had a different face painted onto yours after all.
With that in mind, the safest approach is to go at it yourself. And nowadays, more and more brides are taking to doing their own makeup for their wedding day so you’re certainly not alone. Especially now that you have us to take you through what’s required to achieve a naturally nude look that’ll still turn heads.
These five steps are sure to get you on your way to bridal beauty perfected:
First things first, apply a primer to your entire face to create a smooth canvas off of which to work. Try NYX Professional Makeup Studio Perfect Photo Loving Primer Green that will rid your face of any imperfections or redness.
Next apply L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24H Stay Fresh Foundation for natural looking skin that blends beautifully. It won’t dry out, cause shine or transfer; and it lasts – all key considerations for brides-to-be!
When it comes to your eyeshadow, we suggest a taupe shade with a hint of sparkle. Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Midnight Blast is perfect if you’re looking for a sultry colour that naturally stands out. Apply to both your entire lid, and along your lower lash line.
A brown eyeliner will add dimension to your eyes. Apply Maybelline Colorshow Crayon Kohl in Chocolate Chip along both your top and bottom lashes to make those eyes pop!
When it comes to your lips, choose a colour with a hint of pink, as it’ll best match your natural, fresh-faced makeup look. We love NYX Professional Makeup Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Sky Pink for its staying power and velvety finish.
Ready to walk down the aisle? One thing we know for sure – you definitely look the part. Here’s to happily ever after!
