On your wedding day you as the bride are the center of attention and the focus of every photo taken on the big day. With so many different makeup styles it can be difficult to know how to do your makeup for your wedding day – do you go bold or soft and natural? Typically -- it’s best to go for a look that doesn’t venture too far from your regular makeup look but a natural glam wedding makeup look is the safest bet for all.
Skincare Before Wedding
Healthy, glowing and smooth skin is a vital part of having gorgeous makeup and this is especially true for your wedding day. In advance of your wedding you should look to create a wedding skincare routine which caters to your skin type and concerns. In the lead up to your wedding day use Advanced Génifique Face Serum – it’s a must–have product in any skincare routine. Just one bottle of continuous use improves skin tone, texture and radiance. On the day of your wedding prep skin with a few drops of Advanced Génifique Face Serum to give a boost of hydration and luminosity.
Face Makeup for Brides
Foundation, concealer, and blush are all products which will help to make your skin look its best both in person and in any photos taken on your wedding day. For a seamless and even skin tone start by applying a foundation. To recreate this natural glam wedding makeup try Teint Idole Ultra Wear 24H Foundation -- our lightweight full coverage foundation with a natural matte finish. With transfer resistant and humidity proof properties that last for up to 24 hours it’s especially great for bridal makeup. Prior to applying your foundation you may also like to use a primer for wedding day makeup – this can help to smooth over any uneven texture on the skin for a more seamless appearance, plus it can also help to increase the longevity of your makeup and further prevent fading, smudging, and smearing of your bridal makeup.
After applying foundation use Teint Idole Ultra Wear All Over Concealer to apply additional coverage on any areas where needed. With full coverage and a natural matte finish it’s a great blendable concealer for covering dark circles, redness, discoloration and any breakouts or pimples you may have on your skin. Plus -- it can also be used to add contour and highlight to the skin – use a shade 1-2 shades darker than your skintone to contour and use one 1-2 shades lighter shade to highlight.
For long-lasting bridal makeup you may also like to incorporate a setting powder to lock in any cream products. After all your makeup is complete a spritz of Fix it Forget It Setting Spray can help to increase the wear time of your makeup by up to 24 hours.
After setting your cream or liquid foundation add color and warmth to the skin with a blush -- Blush Subtil in Cedar Rose is a mauve-rose shade which gives a warm flush of color to the cheeks. Blend across outer perimeter of the face – focusing on the temples, hairline, and the tops of the cheeks for an added sunkissed glow.
Bridal Eye Makeup
Perfecting your face makeup for your wedding is just one part of your bridal makeup look. Next up is the eyes. Using our Hypnôse 5-Color Eyeshadow Palette in Smoky Chic create an elegant smokey eye. With intense pigment and a soft blendable texture anyone can easily create a eye makeup look for a wedding.
1. To help increase the wear time of your eye makeup start by prepping the eyelids with an eyeshadow primer for long-lasting wear.
2. Apply the lightest shade over the eyelid to create a natural base
3. Use a small crease brush to apply the second deepest shade in the palette into the crease of the eyelid to create subtle definition
4. Blend the second lightest shade of eyeshadow over the center of the eyelids
5. Add more intensity by smudging the medium dark charcoal shade at the base of the lashes to create a smokey effect on the eyelids
6. Blend the darkest shade over the outer corner of the eyelids and blend into the crease
7. Smudge and blend the darker shade into the lower lash line to add more definition
8. Use the lightest shimmering shade to highlight the inner corner of the eyes and underneath the brow bone
Once you’ve completed the natural glam makeup look for your eyes use Le Stylo Waterproof Eyeliner in the shade Noir Intense. Apply the eyeliner to the top of the lash line and blend out using the included smudger to create a soft and smoky effect to the top and lower lash line. With an ultra-creamy and blendable formula the eyeliner is a great option for weddings as it sets to a waterproof and smudge proof finish so there’s no need to worry about smearing on the wedding day!
Once the bridal eyeshadow and eyeliner is completed the final step for bridal eye makeup is to build up lash volume and definition with Monsieur Big Waterproof Mascara – our volumizing mascara that delivers up to 12x lash volume compared to natural lashes. It’s our best waterproof mascara for weddings – the formula is sweat proof, smudge proof, and has up to 24 hours of wear so there’s no dripping and smudging if you cry tears of joy.
Lipstick for Wedding
To finish off the bridal makeup look add some color and definition to your lips. For all day wear with a lightweight feel apply L’Absolu Rouge Cream Lipstick in the shade French Tea. This long-wearing, non-drying liquid lipstick leaves lips with a soft matte finish that won’t feather or bleed. You can leave the look there or if you’d like to add a little shine try applying a dab of Juicy Tubes Gloss in the shade Simmer just to center of the lips.
