Beauty Behind The Bridal Veil

It’s the one day in your life where nothing short of perfection will do and I would love to help you make that happen! Makeup application is an art form in and of itself, transforming the bride into a goddess for a day is what I do. So, today I wanted to share a bit of what it takes to create the stunning depiction of feminine beauty that lies behind the veil. I feel that the best bridal makeup is simply the most exquisitely polished version of how the bride usually looks. After all, you want to look beautiful rather than your makeup.

Superstition has it that it is bad luck for the groom to see the bride prior to the wedding. A veil hiding her face also ensured that the groom would not see his soon-to-be-betrothed until the ceremony. But, did you also know that the veiling of the bride originated in the idea that the bride is pure and vulnerable to enchantment? Therefore, she must be hidden and shielded from evil spirits. The bridal veil may have been a symbol of purity and modesty, but today, it’s an essential accessory for a bridal look. It’s the icing on the cake, so to speak. The general consensus tends to be that the hair and makeup pull together the veil and the dress. Anyone can hide behind a veil, but what happens when the veil is removed? All Eyes On You!

The eyes and lips are usually the most interesting parts of the face to work with, though the entire face can be amazingly transformed with some cleverly placed contours and highlights. On top of this, a beautiful veil framing the face can really help to take a makeup look from the level of being just ordinary to extraordinary. Giving maximum definition and emphasis, its perfect for making the most of your eyes whilst still giving an elegant and soft overall effect. Finish your make-up off with a highlighter shade on the brow-bone to make the eyes really pop. Go for a light matte shade, and pat onto the outer corner of the brow bone so subtly draw attention to this area of your face.

Remember that bridal make-up needs to have enough color to compensate for the whiteness of the veil. Start by making sure your skin looks even and smooth, and then add color to your cheeks and lips to give them a glow. Skip lip gloss if you are wearing a veil that comes down over your face. The gloss and any lipstick you’re wearing will transfer to the veil, making for a messy situation. Focus on the most important elements of your look, such as beautifully natural-looking skin, softly groomed brows and feathery lashes. If you get these basic factors right the rest of your make-up will fall into place.
