It’s all about fresh, radiant rose colors that will last the whole day.

 

The shade of rose is ideal for fairer tones with its opalescent sheen; Pink Champagne energizes fair to medium skin with a healthy glow; and Rosy Peaches are so reviving for medium to dark complexions. The general rule for picking the right shade of rose – whether your skin tone is fair, medium, or dark – is to stick to hues within two shades (lighter or darker) of your natural lip, cheek, and eyelid colors.

Spring Bridal Makeup – Inspired by Floral Bouquets

Spring has come again! I love it because Spring is the season for feminine bridal makeup looks that are inspired by floral bouquets.

 

And Spring arose on the garden fair, like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere.

And Spring arose on the garden fair, like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere.

 

Having a Spring wedding? You’ll want makeup shades that strike a natural chord with light, joyful notes. It may be timeless, but this season’s classic bridal look of softly bronzed skin, glossy lips and naturally made-up eyes, is the new look of modernity.

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!

What’s The Best Bridal Makeup Look If You Are Wearing A Tiara?

Hey princess brides! Did you know that the first rule of wearing a tiara, according to Britain’s leading authority on the subject, is that rank does not dictate who can or cannot place a dazzling array of gems on their head?

 

Add some glow and sparkle to finish off your bridal look.

Add some glow and sparkle to finish off your bridal look.

 

Rather it is the occasion. So go ahead and rock a tiara on your big day because apart from weddings there are increasingly rare occasions these days when tiaras are absolutely essential. And besides, the ancient etiquette is that you wear a tiara for the first time on the occasion of your marriage. This is because tiaras symbolize the loss of innocence and the crowning of love.

So what’s the best bridal makeup look if you are wearing a tiara? How should you wear your hair and makeup? The updo is a classic hairstyle that is known for its versatility – a good updo can be a perfect fit for your dazing tiara. But if you have long hair then wearing it down with simple curls and a fantastic tiara will make your wedding hair look simply gorgeous on the big day. As far as makeup goes, you’ll want to create a  super sophisticated look. Search for finely milled powders that sparkle like diamonds and can be used on the eyes. You can create an elegant make-up look with some delicate yet dazzling details that will spruce up your smokey eye but, be careful not to over do it. You don’t want your makeup to compete with your tiara! The idea is to let your natural beauty shine through as you sparkle your way down the aisle.

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.
