Bridal makeup for fair skin can be tricky especially if your not wanting to look too pasty on your wedding day. Here are a few bridal makeup tips that will keep you from not looking pasty, and makeup recommendations match that porcelain skin allowing you to embrace your fair beauty.
For those who don’t know what sculpting powder is, it is a powder that allows you to contour and shade your face. It is different from a bronzer in the sense that sculpting powders have a grey undertone. The grey undertone helps you to be able to shade the face in a subtle way without looking discolored. I prefer the MAC sculpting powders available online only or in the pro-store in Sculpt or Bone Beige. Just make sure you have the compact or insert, as they come in pan size only.
Especially with bridal makeup, the more fair the better when choosing eyeshadow colors for your wedding day. When choosing colors for more fair skin, the lighter the better. Think light, matte, soft, and airy. I like to go with matte latte shades, soft pinks and light pale peaches, with a light champagne shimmer.
Opt for nudes or pale pinky nudes. It will look pretty nude in the tube, but remember this has to blend in with your lips natural lip color, so if your lips naturally have a lot of color to them already, remember for bridal makeup, stick with the lightest hue. Lipsense shade, Praline Rose, is a perfect bridal makeup lip color that looks great on fair skin. Lipsense is a 16 hour weear kiss proof color that does not dry out the lips.
Here is my biggest question in regards to bridal makeup! Whats the best foundations for fair, pale skin. There are several brands that offer a larger range of hues. I prefer Make Up For Ever HD liquid foundation, Dior Forever foundation in 10, or Temptu #1 shade is great for airbrushing options.
At the end of the day, its always best to leave your bridal makeup to a professional and allow them to find your perfect color match. However, hopefully these few bridal makeup tips will help you in choosing some shades on your own for everyday wear.
