When planning your bridal makeup, it’s worth bearing in mind that you’ll have to live with your wedding photos for the rest of your life, so it’s best to avoid statement looks and opt for something more timeless and classic.
Thanks to Kim Kardashian, contouring is a huge trend right now. But this kind of heavy manipulation can look very harsh during the daytime. “Natural lighting accentuates your natural beauty, so keep it light and fresh.” Always remember that you are going to look back at your wedding photo’s for years to come, you don’t want someone to be able pinpoint which decade your wedding took place in based on your face alone.
A typical makeup mistake that brides make, is getting swept up in the latest eyebrow trend or base makeup trend.
“Highlighters, glittery face powders and foundations with a high SPF can be your worst enemy, creating strange white flashbacks in your wedding photos. Avoid products with too much light reflection – use a tiny bit under the eyes and on the high point of the cheek bones and make sure it is subtle and well blended.
Think Classic Bridal Makeup: “Don’t go for a very trendy or catwalk inspired look, you don’t want your photographs to date. You want something timeless and classically beautiful. If you look at wedding photos from the 1980’s you can really tell but if you look at photos of Grace Kelly for example, you can’t really put a date on them.”
A timeless, elegant bridal look will never go out of style.
Every bride wants to feel beautiful on their big day and a classic bridal look will achieve that.
