Happy 4th of July Brides! Top Tips For Freedom From Makeup Meltdowns

Happy 4th of July to My Dearest Brides! The heat can wreak havoc on your bridal makeup. So how can you stop from having a meltdown during your big day?

 

Red, white and blue makeup is fun to rock on the 4th of July!

Red, white and blue makeup is fun to rock on the 4th of July!

 

Top Tips for Freedom from Makeup Meltdowns

Keep in mind that heavy, oil-based cosmetics do not wear well in hot weather. Light, shear and waterproof makeup will stay in place longer.

So, always begin with a good skincare regimen. Giving yourself a mask once a week will promote healthy regenerating skin cells, smooth surface skin and a glow because you got rid of all the dead cells.

During the summer, your skin produces more moisture naturally. Heavy creams and thick lotions can make you feel like your skin is suffocating. An essential product for the blazing summer heat (especially recommended for those with oily skin) is an oil free mattifying moisturizer.

Always carry a spritzer to hydrate your skin during those summer months this helps your skin stay hydrated, look dewy and yes even set the makeup you have on. Misting your face with rose water also helps to set your makeup and keep it in place.

Wearing a good primer helps to create barrier between your skin and your makeup, thereby helping your makeup to stay put.

Translucent Powder helps control shine and help sets makeup making it a definite summer staple.

Consider using oil-blotting sheets as they help absorb excess moisture without smudging your makeup.

And finally, waterproof makeup, specifically eyeliner and mascara, helps prevent smudging.

Get The Look

Don’t be afraid to kick off the Fourth of July with a beauty look as bold as the fireworks in tonight’s sky. Apply a bold scarlet color on the lips, this color lipstick was designed for the Fourth of July!  The hot beauty trend this summer is to skip the black eyeliner. It’s just too harsh. Instead, try a deeper-hued shade of blue. Navy or indigo works great.

Keep in mind that blue eyeliner can make blue eyes pop! A navy blue works really well as a chic and modern alternative smokey eye.  The best part is that these hot hues are totally wearable, whether you’re a blonde, redhead, or brunette.

Vintage Pastels For A Romantic, Soft Hued, Delicate Bridal Makeup Look

If you think pastels are just a pale, sweet cliché, let this be a lesson. Romantic, soft hues and delicate pastels create a gorgeous bridal makeup look!

 

Vintage Pastels For A Romantic, Soft Hued, Delicate Bridal Makeup Look

How to make the trendy, yet classic, pastel beauty look wearable for your wedding.

 

Rose, blush, pink – in fact, all shades of spun-sugar and ballerina slippers, dominated the faces of the models walking the summer ’14 runways. And if you are not sure how to create this look, no worries. Staying on trend will be as easy as picking up an eye shadow palette that contains both a taupe and soft pinks to create the look.

  • To avoid tired-looking eyes, go lighter on the brown when applying on the bottom lids.
  • If you want to play around with the trend, but are looking for a more toned down romantic look, you can use pale pink to achieve a smashingly hip effect.
  • Start with a monochromatic palette. For cheeks, take inspiration from fresh blooms and pretty pastel hues of pale, blush toned roses.


What makes pastel pink lipstick not look like something you’d see in a Nicki Minaj music video?

Undertones that are less white and more purple.

  • Tone down pastel eye shadow with a heavy black lash and a nude lip.
  • Opt for pearl or crystal, shimmery shadows in delicate pastel shades for a lovely sophisticated finish to your bridal eyes.
  • Complete your soft romantic makeup look with a stylish tousled ‘do.
