How To Do A Bold Bridal Makeup Look
by Brianna Michelle on July 09, 2017
Alexis was one of my brides, last Spring, that was not afraid to sport a bold, bridal makeup look!
Most brides are intimidated to sport a bold lip for their wedding day, but I try and educate as much as possible. If you are wanting that fresh, bold bridal makeup look, you have to create a contrast from the skin tone giving you more of that fresh, feminine glow and that can be done by choosing a bold lip color.
Here are a few bridal makeup tips in sporting a bold lip shade.
How Do Do A Bold Bridal Makeup Look:
1.Match your lip color to one of your wedding accent colors. Do you have red in your bouquet, or a deep plum? Focus on accenting your lip color to match something that is in one of your wedding day elements such as your bouquet or accent flowers.
2. Create a Custom Lip Cocktail. Having a hard time matching a complimentary lip shade to your wedding elements? Try mixing your own shade. We mixed two Lipsense colors Plum and Purple Reign to create the perfect custom color for Alexis.
3. Practice a Trial. You have to get used to seeing yourself in a bold bridal makeup look, so practice wearing the lip color BEFORE the wedding day. Taking selfies in the lip color will also help you in knowing how its going to photograph for the wedding day and make you feel more comfortable seeing yourself in such a dramatic look.
4. Keep Eyeshadow Simple, but Add Lots of Lash. By keeping the shadow simple, and adding lots of lash, helps keep the eyes dramatic enough, but balancing out the dramatic of the lip shade.
How to create a bold, bridal makeup look is THAT easy. It’s as simple as that. This plum color on Alexis was the perfect look for her rich, elegant and romantic wedding theme on the gorgeous Riviera Golf Club in Las Vegas. Most popular with our clients, lipsense is a kiss proof lip color, you dont have to ever worry about your lipstick coming off on your groom when you kiss him at the alter!
