We know that captivating, not cringe-worthy, is the beauty goal of every bride planning her big reveal as she takes her walk down the isle.
So we’re sharing our favorite wedding day makeup check list - Marie Claire magazine’s clip and save tip sheet “Bridal Make-Up Tips: The 10 Dos And Don'ts You NEED To Pay Attention To.” Their experts warn not to go for anything too trendy, because you will have to live with the photos for the rest of your life! The solution? Go classic.
Bridal bible The Knot concurs, reporting that of the top eight trends from New York Bridal Week for wedding prep 2016, iconic bold brows, first made big by classic beauties Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor, are making a comeback because of their staying power.
Pro makeup artist and All-Body skin perfecter creator Ida Roseman advises remembering that the focus of this look is your brows, so keep the rest of your makeup natural.
GET THE LOOK - IDA’S FLAWLESS HOW-TO: To achieve a bold look, make sure your brows are well groomed and shaped. Fill in your brows with a pencil or powder. To avoid too heavy or too light of a brow, use one to two shades lighter for dark hair and one to two shades darker for lighter hair. By doing this, your brows will frame and balance the entire face. After filling in the brows, set them with a translucent powder and follow with a clear brow gel to separate and give dimension to the brows. If you want more glam, just add some single false lashes or a bold red lip.
Congratulations to the beautiful couple!
