The first rule of thumb is that your bridal party’s makeup should be natural, sophisticated and somewhat in uniform. You don’t want one bridesmaid with no makeup at all and then another bridesmaid with full face of makeup on. Not only can this be distracting in pictures, but it can also take away from the bride and her beautiful look on her special day.
- So, as a rule of thumb, you want the bridal party to have a similar look in their makeup.
- Keep the makeup classic, but enhance the eyes a little bit for this occasion.
- Add a half lash of false lashes on the corner of the eyes to open up the eyes
- Use a slightly dark liner, or black liner with a little bit of the plum eyeshadow shaded over to add some color (plum enhances any eye color!)
- Put bronzer on the face to warm up the skin
- Use a soft pink blush to brighten up the face and give some color.
- Last but not least, add a soft pink lip gloss.
As you can see, this type of makeup look will look great on almost all types of skin tones and will make any one of your bridesmaids feel beautiful and polished.
I may not be the biggest fan of Kim Kardashian, but I can’t ignore how stunning her wedding makeup was last week. As always, she was sculpted and contoured to perfection. Her makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic stated that “Contouring frames the face and chisels the cheeks, so basically it’s putting a little bit of bronzer on the hairline and jawline and on the hollows of the cheeks and the bridge of the nose. It thins out the face and gives warmth to the face.”
Yet, her makeup look is surprisingly attainable via budget friendly products. After contouring, Dedivanovic lined her lids with Urban Decay Ink for Eyes eyeliner in Perversion. Her full fringe came courtesy of her own brand of individual lashes and a healthy dose of Urban Decay’s upcoming Perversion Mascara. He topped off the look with L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Extraordinaire Lipstick in Nude Ballet (one of my all time favorites).
For her hair, Chris McMillan polished Kardashian’s luscious locks by prepping her hair with Living Proof’s Satin Hair Serum to tame flyaways. To add some more volume for the reception, he worked in a touch of the Amp2 Texture Volumizer and sealed the look with a blast of the Flex Shaping Hairspray.
