Save the ‘Red Carpet’ look for the guests.
Many women attending the wedding will get their glam on and attempt a red carpet look for your event …but what smart bride wants to look like the rest of her guests? I feel the same way about brides who turn to runway and fashion trends…I’m not a fan.
You have to be super careful with trend or runway looks. They become dated VERY quickly. The last thing you want to hear is guests murmuring in amusement at your ‘interesting’ bridal beauty choices. Do you want to be that bride? You know, the one who looks at her wedding album years later, wondering, “what was I thinking?”
Don’t believe it happens? Go ask a trend bride from the 80’s or 90’s…ouch!
I’m a bridal makeup purist. A women should look like the most beautiful version of HERSELF on the big day. Looking timeless is the key, but timeless doesn’t mean you can’t look modern. Always keep the bridal “ahhhhh factor” in mind. You want to hear that soft sound of recognition, confirming you are the undisputed star of this event. Beautifully applied makeup that accentuates and enhances all of your best features is the only way to bring on the “ahhhhh’s”.
Make it last…
Between the cheers. tears, hugs, kisses and endless photos, a bride needs to look fabulous throughout the event. It is imperative for makeup to not only look great, but to hold up…even under extreme circumstances. With thoughtful application and carefully chosen products, you can create what I lovingly call The Bulletproof Bride.
