Bridal Makeup Tips / by Jenny Chang

Getting your makeup done is always fun, but can be a bit nerve-racking when it’s your wedding day. The last thing you want is your makeup artist over-doing it or under-doing it. It’s always smart to get a trial session before the big day so that you can give your makeup artist your yes and no’s. Here are a few stunning ways to do your makeup: Image

This is a great look with simple light foundation and a neutral pink lip. The eyes are subtle but still dramatic with black lashes and dark fade on the outer lid. This is great for an afternoon into evening wedding because this makeup will be strong enough to stay as the night goes on.

This is an even more simple look with a nude lip and light cheek and foundation. The bold dark eyeliner on the eyelid and intense lashes gives her face definition without going over board. You want to make sure your makeup will be seen through pictures but not overwhelming face to face.

This is a great smoky look with shadow and liner both on the eyelid and underneath the eye. Great for light eyes, the dark around the eye allows your natural color to pop. With darker eyes having liner and shadow below your lower lashes can create the ‘raccoon’ eye. Browns and grays are great colors to use if you are going to go a little more bold.

Don’t be afraid to go dramatic when it comes to lipstick! Intense reds and pinks are in this season and look great on everyone. Do a simple look for your ceremony and then add a fun dark lip for your reception!

This look has bold eyeliner with bronze cheeks and light pink lip. Eyebrows are also key when getting your makeup done! Be sure to get them waxed or threaded a day or two before to prevent any burns or bumps. If you are not usually one to fill in your brows then don’t do it on your wedding day! It can really alter your look and you want to make sure you still look like you!

Gorgeous hot pink lip with a great shadow wing and bold lashes. Don’t be afraid to let your makeup artist give you fake lashes. They really do make a difference in emphasizing your makeup, especially in pictures. As long as you keep them modest, they will look natural with an extra something.
