You want to look fabulous on your wedding day, but sometimes it’s difficult to know exactly what your “look” should be. Here are a few bridal makeup tips to help you look your very best on your big day.
Dramatic matte red lipstick for brides will never go out of style. Pillar box red lips are great for glamour and paired with strong brows create a really defined look.
Believe it or not, there are all colours of red and the key is to pick the right shade for your skin tone.
Always use a lip primer to start – apply it like a balm and leave for a few minutes. Wait until it goes tacky then apply the lipstick. With a good primer, most lipsticks should last right through your wedding day.
Remember, always apply your lipstick before your liner. Once the base layer is on, use tiny dash-like motions to define the lip line. Finally, a little concealer on a flat brush will clean the edges for the perfect red pout.
Super Natural Bridal Makeup
Barely-there, minimal make-up can show off your bridal glow beautifully. The key is all in the prep, so be sure to up your skincare routine around six weeks before your wedding day.
Toxins build up over the course of the day, so it’s vital to prep the skin every night to get rid of them.
Use an exfoliating cream to slough away dead skin and using a serum will help erase fine lines and firm the skin’s surface – leaving it fresh, firm and make-up ready.
Metallic Eye Makeup
From silver cat eyes to light-catching foil nails, ramp up the wedding day drama with mixed metals at your wedding.
If nude makeup isn’t your thing, metallic eye makeup makes a great alternative, without being over the top. Keep the rest of your bridal make-up wedding-classic, then try a hint of glittery liner or sheer polish.
