It is important to look flawless for your big day. Creating a blank canvas (priming) before you apply any make-up will help your face stay picture perfect throughout the day and night. Have a practice make-up application run a couple days before your wedding. Try these suggestions below for your Bridal Brilliance!
Smokey eyes are not only for a night on the town, but can be worn for weddings too. For a more natural look try Gold and Bronze shadows; this will keep your make-up looking fresh and trendy without the drama of being over- done.
You will need to start with an eye primer like MAC Prep+Prime Eye ($16.50 www.maccosmetics.com)
Instead of just the traditional eye shadow powders try mixing in cream or gel liners as shadows such as MAC Fuidline in Rich Ground ($15 www.maccosmetics.com) This will give you amazing staying power for those warm summer months. If you still want to stick with the powder shadows try Cargo Essential Palette in Bronze ($32 www.cargocosmetics.com)
Start with a Primer like Giorgio Armani Fluid Master Primer($56 www.giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com) to insure your make-up stays on all night while smoothing away fine lines and imperfections.
Whether you are the bride or in the wedding party you need a foundation that resist smudging and will not melt through the heat and humidity like Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Stay-in-Place Make-up SPF 10 ($33.50 www.esteelauder.com)
Create that over-all face glow, radiance finish with MAC Mineralized Skin Finish in by Candlelight ($28www.maccosmetics.com)
Does your lipstick wander off? Try an amazing invisible anti-feathering lip liner like Benefit d’finer d’liner ($20 www.benefitcosmetics.com)
Afterwards try a neutral shade of lipstick like Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Crème Lip Colour in Mademoiselle ($30www.chanel.com)
Dot some gloss like Chanel Glossimer in Bikini Peach ($27www.chanel.com) in the center of your lips and you are perfect and flawless for your big day!
