BRIDAL MAKEUP AND YOUR BOHO DRESS

Did you know that choosing your wedding day makeup can be the hardest decision you’ll make after choosing the groom?

 

Bridal Makeup And Your BOHO Dress

 

While your dress is definitely crucial, your bridal makeup is equally important — not only will everyone will be looking at your face and its radiant glow, but photos are forever. A good rule of thumb is to start thinking about your makeup early on — perhaps right after you lock down your boho dress. That way your whole entire vibe goes together. So, if you’re going with a boho vintage-inspired lace gown like the one seen here, think ethereal style when it comes to your makeup. Continue Reading…

THERE WILL BE TEARS…

Let’s face it, wedding ceremonies require special eye make-up products like a good waterproof gel eye liner because tears of joy are to be expected.

 

Wedding ceremonies require special eye make-up products like a good waterproof gel eye liner because tears of joy are to be expected.

 

I love using gel eye liner on our brides, it really enables me to create a variety of eye-opening effects—from thin, precise lines to thick, dramatic looks. A gel eye liner is an innovative alternative to traditional powder and liquid formulas, plus they usually glide on smoothly, dry quickly and won’t smudge.

PRO TIP

Apply with a liner brush for razor-sharp precision or smudge it with your fingers for more complete coverage. Remember to always close the airtight lid to keep the gel soft and pliable.

BRIDAL BEAUTY ON THE GO: Contouring and Highlighting

A beautiful bridal makeup application is all about using makeup to highlight and accentuate your features. This is especially important for photos, as the camera tends to pick up shadows and highlights better than the naked eye.

 

BRIDAL BEAUTY ON THE GO: Contouring and Highlighting

 

There are actual contouring and highlighting powders made just for this, but you can also use a bronzer or powder that is a few shades darker than your skin, and a foundation that is a few shades lighter for highlighting. For the most part, your t-zone and under eye area is where you want to highlight, and the outer portion of your face, underneath your cheekbones, and your neck is where you want to define with a darker color. Keep in mind, blending is key for a natural look!

Contact Bridal Makeovers by Aradia for a trial run to see how these techniques can transform you into the beautiful bride you have always dreamed of becoming!

Vamp Up Your Valentine’s Day Makeup!

Valentine’s Day 2015 coincides with the highly anticipated opening of the film Fifty Shades of Grey. So, why not enhance your seductive power with your eye makeup? You’ll need to master the art of making your makeup last during and after every erotic scene. After all Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to do something a little more sensual with your makeup.

 

If your V-Day plans include getting all dolled up, sexy eyes are the way to go.

 

Bedroom Eyes

Typically when sex-proofing your makeup, you don’t want your eyes to run.  If the label says “waterproof,” “smudge proof,” or “sweat proof,” you’re going to want to invest. You’ll need to layer your eye makeup products for a bold, longest-lasting smoky eye. Start out by applying an eyeshadow base like Urban Decay Primer Potion all over the eyes. Next apply a matte eyeshadow closest to your skin tone all over the eye. After that, layer a shimmery eyeshadow color similar to the matte one just on the lid and on the brow bone. Then take your main smoky color and with a thick eyeshadow brush like MAC#217 and apply it in a V shape to the outer corners of the eye and in the crease.  Just like your wedding day mascara and eyeliner, you’ll want quality waterproof cosmetics like Make Up For Ever’s Aqua liners. They have real staying power and are available in bold colors. MAC gel liner in Blacktrack is a must and their Naked Pigment shadows are amazing! The ultimate must have to transform your look from soft and innocent to sultry this V-Day is Makeup Forever’s “Give In To Me.” It’s a collection of alluring shades inspired by the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. I recommend protecting your seductive smoky eye with a setting spray.

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!

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.
