It’s no secret that almost every bride dreams about her wedding day and such dreams are usually very big. That is quite understandable because it is a big life-changer, but it has to be preceded by months or even years of careful planning and preparations. With so many things that need to be arranged and organized and so much that can go wrong through no fault of yours, it’s normal that some brides find the whole thing overwhelming. Still, some things depend solely on you and how well you prepare for the big day. One of them is your makeup, which is supposed to make you look prettier than ever. So, if you wish to look gorgeous and leave a great impression on everyone, including yourself, take a look at the latest trends in bridal makeup.
Photo-ops all around
No wedding is complete without hundreds or even thousands of pics, most of which feature the bride. You most certainly want to look great in most, if not all of them, so make sure you boost the amount and quality of your regular makeup. Still, you don’t want to go over the top, so think about foundation, highlighter and a layer of blush thicker than usual. A touch of bronze eyeshadow and some false lashes will make you look great both in person and in pictures that you’ll look back at years later.
Eyes are said to be the mirror of the soul and on your big day, your soul should be at its best. So, apply smoky eyeshadow or a smudged liner to play up your eyes, but don’t forget that there might be some tears of joy that day. That is why your smoky eyes should work with waterworks to help you maintain your fabulous look throughout the day. Feeling adventurous? Try including charcoal or gunmetal-grey shadows. It’s really popular these days and many brides are choosing these options. Even if you think you’re sure about your choice, you can find someone at Find Book Beauty who can do your fabulous bridal makeup sometime before the big day, so that you check whether that’s really the way to go. If you are not brave enough to experiment, opt for a cat-eye and red lip, bumped up with lashes and cheekbone highlight, which provide the much-needed glamour.
Angelic, not intimidating
Nobody wants to be even slightly intimidated by the bride at a wedding. On the contrary, they want to see you radiant and you can achieve this effect with shimmery eyeshadow or iridescent highlighter. Just tap the glow on the inner corners of your eyes, on your eyelids and on top of your Cupid’s bow.
To glow or not?
If the latest royal weddings are anything to go by, it’s completely wrong to assume that you need to literally shine at your wedding. This is especially true if you feel ill at ease with so much shine and glitter. The bottom line is that it’s perfectly OK to go for a full-matte look. To boost the appearance, apply the contour deeper and have blotting papers somewhere within arm’s reach, just in case.
Bronze and gold
Bronze tones will help you achieve that natural finish and a classy yet glamorous look. You can get a similar result with a combination of copper and gold since they’ll make your face glow in a positive sense. Just make sure you apply it carefully on your cheekbones and complement the overall look with a glittery gilded eyeshadow or highlight in powder formulas.
The most important thing is that you feel great, which means you need to be happy with the way you look. Being trendy also helps leave a great impression on everyone, so try some of these tips before the big day and see if you like them.
