With wedding season on the way, we caught up with the team at Fragrance Direct to bring you a selection of the best makeup looks for every type of wedding. Read on to find out their top tips!
“Natural makeup is a popular choice for weddings – a subtle yet elegant statement that doesn’t try to outshine the bride on her big day.
Applying a primer first will give your make-up staying power to last throughout the day’s activities; perfect for Summer weddings when you don’t want to worry about your make-up melting off!
Next, foundation. To achieve the natural look, choose a sheer, light product (Rimmel Foundation Fresher Skin). If you have dry skin, a tinted moisturiser may be your best option (NUXE Teint Eclat Prodigieux Tinted Moisturising Crème.)
Keep eyes and cheeks as natural as possible to show off your features without overpowering your wedding day look (Model’s Own Rock N Rosy Blusher Stick). Using a similar colour on your eyelids will ensure you keep the look natural. Finish it off with a nude lip and you’re ready to go.”
“If you are going for a glamorous look, getting your eyes right will make all the difference; glitter is a great option that will really make your makeup pop (Technic Loose Glitter). Be sure to put eye primer or concealer underneath to keep the glitter in place for longer.
Make sure your lashes match the intensity of your eyeshadow, and fake eyelashes can be a great way to achieve this look (Invogue Eyelashes in Glamourise 82).
Add a lip colour to finish off your look – NYX Velvet Matte Lipstick feels luxurious and comes in a variety of shades, there’s a colour to suit every outfit.
Bold and Beautiful
A bold lip can make an outfit and give your look the wow-factor. Whether you’re going for a statement pattern colour or more subtle shades, a bright lip is a great way to complete your look.
Clinique’s Pop Lip Colour & Primer has primer in its formula meaning it stays on for longer – around eight hours wear! It is a great size to pop in your bag or pocket, too, so you can re-apply throughout the day.
You want your bold lip to stay in place for as long as possible. To achieve this we suggest investing in a lip primer (Technic’s Lip Primer with Aloe Vera & Vitamin E) to keep your lips hydrated and keep the colour in place – what more could you ask for?
If you’re going for a bold lip, we’d recommend keeping the cheeks and eyes simpler. A volumizing mascara and a bit of colour on the cheeks goes a long way with a lip that strong.
