Part of reason that make me decide to be a bridal makeup artist is that I love weddings. It simply makes my heart smile.. Wedding season is here.. I live in Huntington beach, California. There are people getting married every day.
I know there are people who are reluctant to go to those weddings. But I just enjoy the good vibes there, I enjoy watching the beautiful bride walking down the isle with her picked wedding gown, or watching people having fun doing terrible dance. So today I am going to share some bridal makeup tips and tricks about bridal makeup to help your makeup last all day long, and it will make you look your best both in person and in photos. Lets start.
Bridal makeup primer
Rose water is woman's best friend. It moisturize your skin and hair. you can also use it to set up your makeup. Once you start using it, its hard to go without it.
Another spray I can't live without is smashbox photo finish mist. The hydrating, superfine facial spray uses revitalizing electrolytes to leave your skin looking radiant as it creates a sheer canvas for makeup application and helps lock in makeup to give you a photo-ready finish. And it is free of silicone, alcohol, and oil.
Under eye Concealer
The last thing bride wants to see are those dark circles in the pictures. Instead of using byebye undereye, I love this japanese concealer. It works like magic. The coverage is amazing and it moisturize your eye without making it look cakey. Another magic tool is shiseido luminizing satin face color. This was originally used for highlighter, it was found out later on that it covers eye bags like magic. one swipe, undereye circles are gone.
For wedding makeup, it is ok that conture looks heavier than your daily makeup. The camera will wash off most of the makeup. I like to use matty finish instead of glitters also for the photo reason.
Make your eyebrow color darker and longer for photo purpose. The flash of the camera will very likely wash off the tail of your eyebrows. To make sure your eyebrow stay put, use mascara strengthener. its great for keeping eyebrows in place.
Brown smokey eye
Brown smokey eye look is the most requested and classic look. To make sure the color shows well in photos, I like to use eyeshadow stick to couture my eyes instead of using powder eyeshadows. Eyeshadow sticks are highly pigmented, long lasting and you don't even need an eye primer. Try to use the majority of colors with matte finish. And add shimmer in the inner corner of the eyes.
eyelashes and eyeliner are so important for framing your eyes. We all know they need to be waterproof, there is another trick you can use. put some setting powder on the lower lash line. It will keep mascara and eyeliner from smudging.
It is always safe to go with nude colors. Using lip liners first will help keep lip color smudging. If you have dry lips, use lip balm on top. It helps a lot, trust me.
Try this little tricks and let me know if that works. Anyway, it is your big day. It is about you. Do whatever you like, and enjoy those moments
