Makeup Tips for the Beautiful Blushing Bride

 

Beautiful bridal make-up is romantic, classical and most importantly a reflection of your personality. Whether choosing a natural, fresh look or a sexy glamorous make-up for your wedding, the following tips will ensure you look your absolute best!
 
Complexion
• Foundation evens out your skin tone so you look polished in your professional photos. It should be applied over the entire face. It doesn’t need to be heavy, however a sheer application will smooth out your skin tone and minor flaws.
• Choose an oil-free, liquid formula that matches your face and neck. It will help prevent shine during the day and last without fading.
• Next apply concealer with a small brush under your eyes and to the inner corners to brighten. Apply it onto your eyelids and set with powder to create a flawless eye shadow base. Lastly cover any imperfections that were not covered by your foundation. You should choose a shade that matches your skin. For extra brightening under the eyes choose a half shade lighter and for hard to cover shadows choose one shade darker than your skin.
• Finish everything off by dusting sheer loose powder over your face, concentrating in the T-Zone to minimize shine.
 
Eyebrows
• Well-groomed and beautifully arched brows frame your face, enhancing your eyes. They should look natural yet clean. Fill in sparse areas with an angle brush and a taupe shade of eye shadow that closely matches your brows. Brush through with a clear mascara to soften and set.
 

 

Liner & Mascara
• Black eye liner applied to the upper lash line after eye shadow will give beautiful definition in your photos. For a smoky look use a pencil and smudge out with a matching shadow. For a cat eye try liquid liner. Top off with three coats of rich black mascara to your top and bottom lashes. To makes eyes really pop try a set of natural looking, but voluminous false lashes!
 
Cheeks
• Shades of baby pink, rose, pinky coral and delicate peach work best to brighten your skin and give you a romantic glow. Avoid too much bronzer if possible as it can make the skin appear muddy. For a sunny glow apply a hint of bronzer together with pretty pale pink.
• Apply your blush to the upper apples of your cheeks, blending in an upward circular motion along the cheekbones. Don’t skimp on blush as some photography lighting can make your skin look pale.
 
Lips
• Apply a bit of your foundation over your lips to create a lasting base.
• Define the lips along the upper lip line with a natural looking lip liner similar to your own natural lipcolour. This will match with most shades of lipstick, and make your lips appear fuller.
• For a soft, sexy look fill in with a rosy neutral, soft pink or soft coral. Blot with a tissue, lightly dust with sheer powder and reapply. For a pop of shine apply a small dab of gloss at the centre of your mouth.

 

Last but not least, mist everything with MIYU’s hydrate mi beauty essence to set and refresh makeup.
