There is perhaps no day in a woman’s life more important than her wedding day — especially when it comes to beauty. And because it may seem daunting to take charge of your makeup for the big day without consulting a professional, Claire from Ultimakeover is here to ensure that each and every bride feels her best!
“As a makeup artist, I always get asked about what products to use and how to best apply bridal makeup. Brides are becoming more independent — they’re really taking hold of their ‘getting ready’ process to save money and stay true to their own style at the same time. I know the pressure to not poke your eye out can be frightening, but with some practice and knowledge of the right products, achieving a gorgeous makeup look on your wedding day is incredibly doable!”
1. Remove all dirt and oil from skin by washing your face thoroughly with Peter Thomas Roth Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Cleansing Gel ($38).
2. Apply a hydrating moisturizer like Trilane Intensive Repair ($49.99) to skin to give it a smooth-looking surface.
3. Next, add face primer to create a flawless canvas for face makeup. A primer is going to fill in fine lines, diminish the appearance of redness and keep your makeup lasting all day long. It’s a very important step for the big day! MAC ‘Prep + Prime’ Natural Radiance Base ($40) is a great option.
4. Swipe an eyeshadow primer like NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base ($25) across your lids. This will act as a glue for eyeshadow and intensify its colors even more.
