Makeup for the bride

Aug 25, 2008
They want hints and tips specifically on the make-up for Debbie - the 20 something bride getting married in a barn - and Louise - 40 something getting married in Italy. Any tips on what you did - mention your products here! - and any do's and don'ts for brides of the same age/getting married in the same flattering of location. When doing bridal make-up it is essential to take many things in to account. The bride's age and own personal look, the dress, time of year getting married, time of wedding and the location. All of these play an important part of creating the perfect make-up for the bride.

For Debbie - She is young and wants to keep her look fresh. She is getting married in a barn so the whole feeling of the make-up is very natural. Initially i applied a tinted moisturiser, Debbie doesn't wear much make-up so I didn't want her to feel too made up. Then to hide her high colouring I used my Ariane Poole London Concealer Palette just dabbed in the areas that needed it.

Debbie's eyes were kept soft with just a sweep of Bobbi Brown Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow in Fawn on the lids and I smudged Ariane Poole London Brown Suede Powder Pencil along the base of the top lashes for definition. Ariane Poole London Waterproof Mascara was applied to top and bottom lashes. I wanted to keep that country fresh look for Debbie so instead of powder blush I used a lip & cheek stain. I popped it on to the apples of her cheeks and blended it with my finger tips. I used the same product to give Debbie's lips a long lasting flush of colour, then glazed them with Paparazzi Lip Glaze, a soft sheer gold lip gloss. I finish off with a light dusting of Universal Yellow Powder just on the t-zone so the she would radiant not sweaty for her photos. The over all effect was fresh, natural and beautiful.

Louise is 40 something and getting married in Italy. She wanted a sexy, elegant film star look. First I primed Louise's skin with Laura Mericer Primer, this helps make -up last longer. this is especially good if you are getting married in a warm climate. Then I used Lancome Photogenic Foundation for dry skin and Ariane Poole London Mini Concealer Palette to even out her complexion.

I shaped Louis's brows using the Chanel Brow kit (??correct name) I chose the Ariane Poole London Champagne & Caviar Collection for Louise because she is travelling, it contains all she'll need in the way of color cosmetics. Louise wanted smoky eyes so I applied an eye base all over the eyes. Then smoothed the Caviar shade from the C & C Collection all over her lid and just half way along the base of her lower lashes for a soft smoky look. I used the Champagne shade to accent down below the arch of her brows and along the tops of her cheek bones. For an extra touch of glamour I lined the base of her top lashes with the Black & Silver Glitter Pencil and added a few individual false lashes. I finished off with Chanel Waterproof mascara in black

I sculpted Louise's cheeks with Cinnaberry Blush applied just under her cheek bones then on the apples. Louise really wanted to look polished. With her colouring in mind I chose on a soft red for her lips. I lined with a natural coloured lip liner then filled them in with Cranberry Crush Lip Stick. I suggested to Louise that she take some Clinique Shine Absorbing Sheets with on the day to de-shine her t-zone rather than using powder.
