How To Get Bridal Makeup That Is Natural Looking?
The art of great wedding makeup lies in an end-result that looks natural, feels comfortable and makes you feel like you look your best! Minimalist and natural-looking wedding makeup has become extremely popular, especially after Meghan Markle’s breathable and natural bridal makeup look started to become a reference image for brides worldwide.
Speaking of reference images, our advice once you finalise your bridal makeup artist is to share pictures of makeup that most resonates with you to work towards a look that’ll best suit you on your wedding day.
While some may want to go the editorial, magazine look, the more popular option amongst brides is towards more natural wedding makeup looks. Even some of the world’s most famous makeup artists advise brides to not stray too far away from how they normally look for their wedding. This is not a day to be experimenting with bridal makeup looks you’ve seen online – skip the heavy hand on the bronzer and the bright red lip you never really felt like yourself in (unless this is a look you love to normally rock)!
On the other end of the spectrum though, don’t play it too safe. It is a good idea to amp up your simple wedding makeup with a more bashful appearance supplementing your wedding blush with rosier cheeks and a gentle cat-eye flick which can make the look a whole lot more romantic.
Simple wedding makeup has two important aspects- a breathable flawless base which doesn’t budge all day and eye and lip makeup which complement each other.
When it comes to base makeup, to airbrush or not to airbrush, that is the question! In our opinion, airbrush makeup gives that photo-ready finish which most brides crave but it could be a little too heavy for those not too used to makeup.
Speak to your wedding makeup artist beforehand and book a trial session where you can test out how you feel about airbrush makeup. Do not take off your makeup as you leave the trial session, leave it on to see how it lasts through the day. Get advice on easy ways to touch up your makeup to continue looking great, even if your makeup artist isn’t around.
Next comes the wedding eye makeup and how to get your lips done to match. A general rule of thumb is to balance out both of them. For instance, if you know you want a shimmery or smokey eye, go for a nude or MLBB (my lips but better) shade. However, if you know that a bold red lip using MAC’s infamous Ruby Woo has to be part of your look, then go for demurer eye makeup.
Why Using A Wedding Hair and Makeup Team Can Perfect Your Bridal Style?
Imagine this – it’s your wedding day, your phone is blowing up with calls, messages and social media notifications from well-wishers, your family and friends are raising the roof searching for your maid-of-honour’s missing shoe and there you are, trying to perfect that winged liner as part of your wedding makeup look as your best friend tugs on your mane with the hairbrush in an effort to replicate the French twist she’s learning off a YouTube tutorial! Do not get us started on the perils of doing your own wedding hair and makeup!
Now that it is established just how much of a lifesaver the presence of bridal hair and makeup experts is, the question is how to zero in on these professionals from the millions of options available. This is exactly why we exist – we sort through the hundreds; we do the tough task of filing through reviews to put forth only the very best of talent in and around Newcastle!
A good wedding hair and makeup artist or team can have a real calming effect on you, especially amid the unavoidable wedding nerves! You can be guaranteed a spectacular look that’ll survive the long (and enjoyable) day ahead of you.
Many brides are unsure whether to choose a single person or company to get both their makeup and hair done. This is completely up to you! Some believe that hiring experts in either field will ensure a job better done but we personally believe that the same team for both your requirements can work exceptionally well too. Some mobile hair and makeup salons even come to you, ensuring the easiest experience possible!
Wedding hair and makeup add those little final touches to breathe life into the wedding you’ve been preparing for. Though a dress fitting may have seen a few wet eyes around, the final wedding look with hair and makeup done is sure to get the waterworks started!
Wedding Nails For The Perfect Ring Ceremony Photo
Wedding nails may not be the first thing on your mind in the week leading up to your big day, but it should definitely not be the last! Think about just how much your nails will be in the limelight- exchanging rings during the ceremony, those close-up wedding portraits and signing the marriage certificate. The bride’s wedding nails are definitely going to be in focus!
Bridal nail trends come and go, but the classics have always proven to be timeless. When you head in for your last pre-wedding manicure, you may find it tougher to pick what you want your wedding nails to look like than you did picking a dress!
Timeless neutrals and nudes have a cult following when it comes to the bride’s wedding nails. We personally suggest scouring Pinterest- our favourites usually have wedding nail designs on the ring finger (what better day to highlight this finger?!) along with a classic shade painted on the rest. Get creative with your wedding nail art – this is one of those once in your lifetime opportunities!
Another fun idea is to get your girl gang to tag along and treat them to manicures and unique bridesmaids’ nails! It’s a great way to get some quality time with them before the wedding while setting up a fun photo-op.
‘Nail’ that wedding look with some spectacular talons!
