Recently I posted some Bridal inspiration for any of you ladies out there who are getting married soon plus I was also deciding on what makeup I was thinking of for my renewal coming up next month. This week I am sharing some pretty bridal makeup looks for Marie Claire out in this months issue which are so simple but so beautiful. Even though the model has a darker skin tone this will also work for you fairer gals.
The red lip hands down is definitely a gorgeous look to go for on the day because it just makes everything look so amazing. A bold matt lip is definitely the better route to go as it has way more staying power and looks really cool on. Keep the rest of the face really fresh and try go for a foundation that will last the distance especially if its really hot on the day. I used the Bobbi Brown stick foundation here because it has amazing coverage but still keeps skin really dewy. Contouting and highlighting will bring the whole thing together and looks amazing with a red lip. Alternatively you can go for a deep red lip if a bold red is too much or you are going for a winter wedding. If you don’t want to break the bank then try the new matt Red from Gosh, Smashbox are bringing out more red choices and of course Mac have an incredible selection with Ruby Woo and Russian Red being my fav’s.
Alternatively a soft smokey eye looks amazing in this look I used one of the Chanel Les Quatres Ombres palettes for this shoot along the lash line and winging out, lots of mascara and bold brows. I am not a massive fan of fake lashes I am definitely a more natural makeup kind of girl. Purple’s and lilac’s are a great alternative to the usual smokey eye and great for a spring or summer wedding.
What’s your favourite bridal makeup look?
