Bridal Beauty Essentials – Part 1: How To Get That Photo-Ready Bridal Look

Hi All…What an amazing year it has been so far; full of fashion shoots, gorgeous dresses, stunning models, exotic locations and bridal trials, not to mention, weddings. Lots and lots of happy brides have had their makeup and hair done by our incredibly talented team and myself this season.  So, if you are wondering why I haven’t posted a blog lately, it’s simply because of this whirlwind adventure of makeup artistry, color and style I have been on, wooh! But, I am happy to say that I am back and fully focused on writing about some of my favorite subjects – Bridal Fashion, Style and Beauty.

Brides,  if you are avoiding that frosted/metallic/iridescent look and want to add depth, dimension and a flattering cast to your eyes, you’ll need a collection of shadows that are truly matte. I love a neutral palette with shades ranging from light to dark. For a photo-ready look, every bride needs an essential palette of a selection of subtle and smoky shades browns.

Start by blending an ivory shade on the brow bone. Follow with a light taupe or caramel; remember to blend it well on the lid. A muted golden brown is a typical crease color for neutral looks. A deeper brown in the crease to make it look more defined and dramatic. A chocolate brown color is a must, the trick to this shadow is layering the amount you put on your lid. A light layer can give you a subtle daytime look. If you pack on the color, you will get a sultry smoky eye . You can come up with lots of great natural or dramatic combos with these colors! A dark brown-blackish matte eyeshadow is great for smudging along the lash-line to make your lashes look thicker. It turns any daytime look into a night look, and if you blend it in with a matte jet black it adds dimension to eyes. A sultry chocolate palette of dramatic shades, perfect for creating any smoky eye look. Look for shades with velvety/suede finish with amazing color pay-off.


A very pigmented matte dark brown eyeshadow and a creamy bisque shade should be a staple in everyone's collection.
