With all the makeup trends leaning towards stronger, bolder looks we see online, I wanted to bring things back to a softer, more natural bridal makeup. Fierce brows, strong contour and bold lips are fun and dramatic, but there is no replacing a timeless classic. With a classic silhouette; a wedding dress being a perfect example, I think the makeup should match and enhance the lady wearing it. For this lovely bride, I kept things understated, demure and refined. No glitter highlighter, no painted on brows. I think all those trends are fun to wear and experiment with, but on your wedding day, what is better than a little romance, and pictures you can look back on and know you look elegant and timeless.
For this look, I chose a soft minky and champagne eyeshadow palette by Dior. The colours worked well with her skin tone, and didn't overwhelm her features. For the lips, I went with a pinky nude liquid lipstick that dried down to a more caramel finish. With nude lips, it is important to have some pink in there, for a more natural look. Beigey nude lips do not look natural, as most people have a bit of natural colour to their lips. I also added some Ardell individual false lashes, to fill out the lash line and give that fluttery and romantic look to the eyes. Brows were defined with a powder, inkeeping with the soft and elegant look we were going for.
