Wedding Make Up – The Tricks of the Trade

 Wedding Make Up – The Tricks of the Trade


Wedding make up needn’t dramatically change the look of a bride or be too thickly applied. It should just enhance the natural beauty of a woman and still look like the London make up Artist  person once they have had the make up applied.

A bride should look like herself and feel comfortable with the make up she has on and not cause gasps from the congregation or groom when a totally different looking girl emerges through the door and down the aisle !

Sometimes the more simple the wedding make up the better!  Wear a flawless foundation as a base.This is so important so that you look picture perfect in your wedding photos. It will give you a good base and even colour . You can choose from liquid foundations or creme based compacts. Even mineral powder make up is great  because it will last all day!

A Bride needs to have a natural glow!  Have you heard of the saying a ‘Blushing Bride’!?  Make sure you have a lovely blusher on the apple of your cheeks. You do not want to look pale. Pink blush or apricot in colour will suit most skin tones.

Eyes need to look beautiful too. Use fake lashes as part of your wedding make up look. This will enhance your lashes making them look luscious and long! They are easy to apply whether your make up artist does them or you!

Give your lips a touch of gloss or light colour for a beautiful pout! Kissable natural lips will create stunning beauty for your wedding make up!

Finally,  wedding make up needs to last all day!  here’s another tip – Brush a light transclucent powder over areas of the face that are prone to shine.  Worth it’s weight in gold……
