Flawless Bride Makeup

by: Jennifer Campain

Ah, the blushing bride. All eyes are always on the bride. She is the star.

Wedding day makeup and technique is different than any other type because it must be stable, long-lasting, fresh-looking, natural-looking, photography friendly, and most of all, mesmerizing. All of these things should be taken into consideration before planning wedding day makeup.

Beginning with stability, bridal makeup should withstand moisture and movement over a period of time. This is where products such as primers and magnets should be used. A shadow magnet is a cream that neutralizes and fills in the surface of the lid to prevent moisture and oil from disturbing or creasing the eye shadow. Retexturizers or primers are designed to fill in hills and valleys on the skin's surface in order for foundation and concealer to glide over the skin easily, providing a smooth result.

For bridal makeup to appear fresh and natural, it's important that plenty of moisturizer is used during the application of concealer and foundation. Neutralizing the skin's surface and making it appear flawless requires these products to glide and slide. If there is not enough moisture, makeup will look dry, heavy, and caked. In this case, makeup will not create a youthful effect.

Cameras and flash photography illuminate flaws. Therefore, to create beautiful wedding day photos with picture perfect results, makeup should be smooth and soft. It's best to work with matte eye shadows. Matte eye shadows contain no reflective ingredients; therefore the camera loves them so they will compliment the eyes. The eyes should be warm and soft. This is achieved through a smudging technique that creates a gradient effect. The look is completed with plenty of accent on the upper lashes to gives us that "doe-like" appearance. Beware of shadows containing shimmer. Shimmer reflects light, and that will draw attention to wrinkles. We don't want that! However, shimmer cremes and liquids that are carefully placed do play a large role in creating radiance on the skin's surface. That mesmerizing, princess-like glow is created through careful highlighting and contouring with these products.

All of this should be sealed with blot powder. Blot powder should be kept on-hand for the bride all day! Blot powder removes excess oil while preventing creasing, smearing, and smudging. It is designed to absorb oil throughout the day to keep makeup set and undisturbed. It will not build or cake, so it can be used as needed throughout the event. Blot powder is commonly used on film sets and fashion shoots. Hot lights and activity will cause the face to sweat, and we cannot have a shiny bride!

Now go live happily ever after!
