How to Do Romantic Bridal Makeup
While the bridal makeup plays a crucial role in making one’s image picture-perfect, there are also other details that should be taken into account for this day. Thus, knowing certain bridal makeup tips, taking care of the skin in advance, following bridal diet tips to get the perfect body and finally learning how to choose a wedding dress to flatter your figure are some of the common wedding preparation tasks every woman undergoes for securing her maximum elegant and romantic look for her big day. If you have already started these wedding preparations, it’s also wise to practice your makeup application skills to ensure a no-mistake look, as the day arrives.
So for doing this exact makeup look composed of delicate pink and purple tones, you need to get these makeup products and tools:
• Makeup base, foundation, concealer
• Eyebrow kit
• Watercolor eyeshadows in ivory, pink and violet/purple tones
• White and purple loose pigments
• Black eyeliner
• Black mascara
• False eyelashes
• Nude orange lipstick
• Makeup brushes
This romantic bridal makeup look is based on watercolor eyeshadows mainly, since such eyeshadows are usually very resistant and give you the chance to wear such kind of a makeup for more than 24 hours without worrying about a smudged look. Keep in mind that when working with watercolors, you need a flat brush especially designed for this type of eyeshadows.
And the steps of this romantic bridal makeup tutorial go as follows!
Step 1: On this day, every girl’s ultimate goal is to have a flawless, velvety skin, even if some of them may experience common skin care problems that pop out easily. To cover all the skin flaws and get the smooth base, don’t spare money to get a really high quality foundation, which is preferred to be resistant too. Also make sure to pick one according to your skin type and tone in order not to experience unpleasant and unflattering results later on. Don’t forget to apply a makeup base before passing to the application of the foundation. You surely can use concealer to hide skin imperfections. Finally, sculpt your face with a delicate pinky blush tone and if you want to give a sun-kissed effect to your skin too, use some bronzer!
Step 2: Having maximum perfect eyebrows is your next task. If you don’t know how to achieve such an effect, stick to our step-by-step eyebrow tutorial and contour your brows. We have used Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Ebony here.
Step 3: When working with watercolor eyeshadows, it’s advised to wet the brush a little before their application. So as you have done this, apply an ivory watercolor eyeshadow to the first half of the lid, reaching the middle part (Makeup Atelier Paris Watercolor in Ivory).
Step 4: From the middle of the lid apply a pink watercolor shadow (Makeup Atelier Paris Watercolor in Rose Intense) and blend it well with the ivory one. At the end of the lid, apply a violet/purple watercolor eyeshadow and extend it creating a wing (Makeup Atelier Paris Watercolor in Violet).
Step 5: Apply a white loose pigment with pink reflex over the ivory watercolor (Pure Colors Eyeshadow #83 Gold Pink Diamond). Next, above the pink watercolor use a multi reflex purple loose pigment (Parisax Star Powder in Ipanema).
Step 6: On your lower lid, apply a highly pigmented creamy pencil in a wine berry tone (Eau La La Liner in Raisin).
Step 7: Apply black eyeliner on your upper lid (Inglot Amc Gel Eyeliner #77). Apply a few coats of mascara now.
Step 8: You’ll surely want to have super-long and sassy lashes on this special day, therefore opt for false eyelashes (Red Cherry #43).
Step 9: As a finishing touch, apply a matte nude orange lipstick (Sleek True Color Lipstick in Barely There).
This universally flattering romantic bridal makeup in sassy watercolor pinky tones is sure to appeal to many brides-to-be, since it definitely has the power to add extra sophistication and innocence to your wedding looks! So don’t hesitate and give it a try!
