Celebrity Wedding Makeup

Hello Brides-to-be! A question that I receive quite often is how to achieve the look of celebrity wedding makeup. The key is keep the wedding makeup classic while adding a little pop of color to make it “updated and fun”. I have a few suggestions any bride can incorporate into their own look to make them feel like a star.

Add a Splash of Color to Your Eyes
By adding a wash of a brighter color to your eyes, you automatically up the “fun” factor. The key to maintaining a sophisticated look and avoid color overload is by making sure you literally apply a thin wash of color to your lid and crease. Then, top off the look with some liner (a slightly darker color similar to the shadow shade and smudged out will look absolutely stunning!) mascara and complete the look with soft lips and flushed cheeks. Eva Longoria showcased this look at her Parisian wedding and made sure her eyes were the focus of her look Absolutely gorgeous!

Let Your Lips Be Noticed
You can also allow your lips to be the center of attention by applying a rich lip color. Dita Von Teese incorporated this look at her own wedding, complete with her custom purple wedding gown. It’s a slightly unexpected twist, but when paired with soft neutral cheeks and eyes accented with crisp eyeliner and perfectly groomed brows, this look will not only be updated and fun but romantic and sophisticated as well.

Be a Blushing Bride
Keep your guests guessing about your “natural” flush and play up your cheek color. Whether it’s a soft pink or peach for spring, a lovely coral or bronze for summer or a breathtaking cherry stain for Autumn or Winter weddings, everyone will be talking about what a beautiful blushing bride you make. Tarte makes a wonderful product called a cheek stain, and I use them when working with celebrities and models for a natural flushed look that isn’t powdery or fake.

Get Your Skin Glowing
The one thing celebrities are known for is their flawless complexions. Try having your foundation airbrushed for the big day. Airbrushing allows for your foundation to be resilient, waterproof, and completely natural look. It’s so natural you may forget you have any on! These are just a few ways one can add a bit of Hollywood flair in their bridal makeup while still looking radiant and feminine.
