I’m a firm believer that make-up doesn’t have to look too ‘made up’, especially when it comes to your wedding day. Â Mind you, it does take effort (and make-up!) to achieve the natural look, but the pay-off is stunning. Â Plenty of flattering impact can be made with the make-up that you can’t seeÂ … so not the obvious colour stuff like your lipstick, shadow and liner – but the subtlety that contouring, defining your brows and adding false eyelashes can do to bring out your features.
I think a lot of my brides gravitate towards my ‘style’ because many of them barely wear make-up and they are at ease with my best ‘you’ approach to beauty. Â Of course, I always love a good smoky eye and dramatic make-up when a bride opts for that, but often there’s beauty in subtlety.
Whatever look your opt for your wedding day, the key is to make sure it’s in your comfort zone. Â So if you’re a minimalist beauty girl or more naturally heavy-handed like me, try a few looks during your trial with your make-up professional to gauge what makes you feel your best.
Here’s a before and after with a natural bridal beauty who went for a natural look. Â I love the impact from defining the brows!
Side note: Â I wish I had eyebrows. Â Don’t overtweeze, people!!
