Bridal Makeup

Wedding mania has become more pronounced then ever, and the heavens have responded by providing women everywhere with magazines, shows, and movies dedicated to the big day. From Bridal Guide Magazine, to Say Yes to the Dress, to wedding-themed movies such as Bride Wars and Bridesmaids, weddings are definitely the buzz on everyone's lips, and for good reason. A girl's wedding is definitely one of the most important days of her life. So in honor of weddings, I have decided to do a post on wedding makeup!

I've often thought about my big day. To be honest, I have so many ideas swimming around about it that I've never been able to pin down exactly what I want it to be like. I do know however what kind of makeup I want, and that's glamour makeup. I want to be a glamorous bride, and the epitome of what I want to look like is embodied in these two pictures:



This is one of the most beautiful makeup looks I have ever seen, and although it wasn't designed to be a bridal look, I think it works perfectly as such. Everything about it is glamorous, but not too over-the-top or inappropriate. The eyes are soft and smokey, the lips are full and pinky neutral, and the skin is flawless. The hair itself is also ultra-glamour queen, set in soft, full Hollywood waves. 

That's my specific ideal of the perfect wedding makeup. However, tons of varieties exist. In general, wedding makeup tends to be neutral. 






In terms of eyes a girl's best friend are shimmery beige, bronze, gray, and taupey colors. Lips are more flexible, but tend to be pink, peach, beige, or red (for very dramatic brides!). Skin is always flawless and set to last all day, and the cheeks are usually glowy and flushed. So, in order to help you gather inspiration, or achieve that soft smokey eye or perfect neutral look, I have compiled a TON of my favorite Bridal-inspired YouTube tutorials. I hope you enjoy!
