The best advice I have given brides over my ten years of doing makeup is that you should look like yourself on your special day. Makeup for a bride should be about enhancing features and looking fresh. I don’t believe that following a fashion trend or a theme is ideal when it comes to designing a makeup look.

[mwi-product sku=”1000010″ type=”add” ] is ideal as it has full coverage, semi matte, undetectable on the skin and will last all day.

[mwi-product sku=”02280″ type=”add” ] is a MUST have for all skin types. It is important that the skin stays smooth and hydrated all day. This prevents your makeup from splitting later in the evening.

[mwi-product sku=”03271″ type=”add” ] is an essential too, this powder is translucent and is designed to hold your makeup in place, and it does just that. Use it to set your foundation, eyeshadow, blush and lipstick.

[mwi-product sku=”03072″ type=”add” ] is perfect for any bride; this shade of blush is a great universal tone to add a natural amount of flush to the cheeks.

[mwi-product sku=”03389″ type=”add” ] and [mwi-product sku=”03385″ type=”add” ] are two of my absolute favourites for any bride. These shades are a perfect tone to add a soft and natural colour to the lip.

To finish my bridal post, I would like to add a couple of key bridal make-up tips to keep your makeup perfect all day; Carry a pressed translucent powder with you and touch up at least three times. A translucent powder won’t look cakey and will make it look like you’ve just applied your makeup. Secondly, the best thing a bride can do to transition into the evening efficiently is to change the lip colour for the evening. A classic red like [mwi-product sku=”03090″ type=”add” ] or [mwi-product sku=”03080″ type=”add” ] is always a winner and will instantly transform your look with minimal effort.
