With wedding season fast approaching, StyleNest have teamed up with Bobbi Brown to bring you the best bridal beauty tips to ensure you feel and look like the princess you deserve.
With most women wanting to do their own wedding day makeup, StyleNest and Bobbi Brown are on hand to ensure you get a flawless and professional look.
“On your wedding day you should look like yourself at your most beautiful”. – Bobbi Brown.
Step 1. Correct and Conceal
Use a pink or peach toned corrector to neutralise any discolouration under the eye area, followed by a yellow toned concealer to lighten up the darkness. Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Concealer Kit is the ideal compact concealer set which will give a flawless finish.
Step 2. Perfect Your Skin Tone
It’s your big day and all eyes and cameras will be on you so choose a yellow based foundation to even out skin tone and avoid any reflections. Choose a foundation the same shade as your skin as if it’s too light, you will look pale and too dark, you will muddy.
Step 3. Set Concealer and Foundation
To help set your foundation, use face powder to make your makeup last and give your skin a matte finish.
Step 4. The Blush Effect
Apply two shades of blush to give your face a fresh and natural looking. Find a neutral shade, similar to the colour your cheeks go when you pinch them and a brighter pop shade. Apply the natural shade on the apple of the cheeks, blending towards the hairline and then dust the brighter shade on the apples of the cheeks.
Step 5. Highlight Cheeks
Get that healthy shimmery glow with Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick and dust lightl on the cheekbones, highlighting the top cheekbones where the light naturally bounces off the face.
Step 6. Smudge-proof & Water-resistant Eye Makeup
An essential for your wedding day as there is bound to be a tear or two shedded at some stage over the course of the day. With smudge-proof and water-resistant eye makeup, you can sob all you like, as your makeup will still look untouched. Apply two or three coats of mascara to lengthen the lashes and a thin line of jet-black gel liner on the upper lash line, but making sure the line is visible once the eyes are open.
Step 7. Kissable Lips
It’s the moment that seals the deal, the big finale kiss. Ensure your lips are looking plump and perfectly kissable with a just bitten pink shade, rose or plum as pale colours tend to look washed out in photos. Avoid lip-gloss for the ceremony as this could get a bit sticky with a veil situation and most importantly,the kiss so stick to lipstick and top up with a coat of gloss when it’s time to party.
- If you’re getting wedding day nerves (which are perfectly natural) then take a few minutes to remove yourself from the day’s stresses and take a stroll. Take deep breaths until you feel centred and relaxed.
- Nourish yourself and ensure you have had a clean and healthy breakfast or fresh lunch with vegetables and proteins. Feeling good on the inside will help you to glow on the outside.
- Hydrate your body with herbal tea instead of a traditional caffeine quick fix. Soothing and calming, chamomile makes for a great alternative.
- If you feel overwhelmed with a million and one things to do, grab a pen and paper and put your worries to words and transform all your stresses into manageable tasks.
