These are basic classic rules, but it is a good idea to look online or thru bridal catalogs for the
newest bridal hair styles and makeup. Look for updated trends some even may become classics one day.
If you are doing the makeup yourself, then it is not a time to experiment with anything novel or the look of the moment. Keep the look very natural with some depth of color. Use brushes and sponges, not fingers for your application. Go for matte shades which are far more flattering than glittery or pearlie ones. Nails should be in a neutral pastel nail color. Foundation should match your skin tone.
BLUSH colour across the top are Peach, Dusk, Pale Pink and Crushed Grape.
In daylight nothing is more harsh so avoid heavy makeup and foundation. Instead stick with natural mineral makeup or if older reflexive liquid makeup. Reflexive makeup has a slight pearl-like affect on skin making shadows or imperfections less noticeable. If you can't afford to hire a makeup artist then I would suggest a looking at a friend who's makeup application you love, or your bridesmaid, mother or and yourself can learn techniques ahead of time.
For an older woman getting married, or for Mothers of Bride and Groom, avoid hard pencil lines around eyes, and keep colors soft and subtle. This model has a pink-brown blusher, and brown pink lipstick, and the eyes have a light brown gold shadow on lid and socket. A hint of grey gray-brown is on inner brow bone, and a br onze color is blended just under the eye. The inner corner of eye is outlined with a dark grey (gray ) pencil.
If formal wedding photos are being taken a few days before the wedding then these tips may be of help. Bright camera lights tend to wash out colour on the face. Foundation needs to be one shade deeper than skintone to give a warm look. Cheek Colour needs to be kept away from nose and eyes. Corals and peaches are best for colour photography for every skintone.Lips can be in coral or clear red shades of medium intensity. Avoid pearly shades. Outline lips with pencil close to natural lip colour (taupe or soft creamy brown/nude).
Face Powder - dust lightly over entire face for smooth velvety finish. If you don't want to go old school then use a face oil blotter to take away shine, but not smudge your makeup.
Eyeshadow - keep to matte shades. Brown or grey on lid and pale matte under the brow.
Wedding makeup is traditionally kept simple - a light eye shadow with rosy cheeks and a nude lip color or pink. Many people believe that too much eye makeup is a bad choice. Most weddings are during the summer during daylight so heavy eye makeup may look to harsh.
May woman request a dark smoky eye with pale nude lips. This look is great for dates, but a big mistake and not at all appropriate for a wedding. You want to treasure your wedding photos so I would suggest to stay away from dark bright makeup. Instead play in safe and still with earthy natural tones of brown, beige, taupe, pinks, corals or anyone other pastels.
Bare in mind that the color choosen should be right for your eye, skin tone and hair color.
If you do want a smoky eye color I would go with brown, brownish black or smoky gray colors, but never black or very dark or bright colors.
Eyeliner - keep soft and smudged as camera picks up dark lines. Mascara - dont skip it but dont overdo it too much.
Eyebrows - brush hairs so that they dont look straggly, and fill in gaps with a light pencil.
Some of the beautiful Brides that I have "made-up" during the 1990's. They wore white dresses from icy white, and winter white, to ivory and milky coffee shades, with bridesmaids colors that toned in beautifully.
HAIR for Bridesmaids and Bride.
Make sure your Bridesmaids are stunning with flowers in the hair or a wonderful head-dress to fit the occasion.
For a soft romantic style, turn long hair into cascading curls. Then holding the front section of hair about 15 cm or 6 inches from the roots, push it forwards to give height around hairline, framing the face, and hold in place with hair grips. Decorate the hair with a few fresh roses and sprigs of gypsophila pinned in place.
This style is for the "glam" look. Make a side parting and gather hair into a high ponytail on your crown, leaving a section loose at the front. Now divide the ponytail into 6 equal sections, and roll each one under, fastening to the base of the ponytail with grips. Brush the front section smoothly over your forehead, clipping it behind your ear. Let a few sections fall loose to soften the style.
Keep away from too much light. If you can use a back drop pink background looks great on all skin types. Lighting is very important so make sure you have a great photographer with references and samples of her/his work. Know the lighting before hand so you choice the proper makeup. As above not only is the color you choice key but they type.
