We’re in the midst of bridal season, and with four weddings ahead for me over the next few months it’s time to work out how to perfect that gorgeous day to night makeup look.
The lovely ladies at jane iredale have put together the top ten must-have tips for the perfect wedding day makeup.
Firstly, Well-exfoliated and hydrated skin is essential! Any surface dryness and dehydration can cause make up to look uneven and patchy. Prepare your skin with moisturiser and eye cream before your makeup application.
Don’t go overboard with the fake tan! There’s nothing worse than an orange bride. Develop a subtle and even golden tan with jane iredale’s Tantasia Self Tanner. Tantasia can be used on the face and body, start using it four days before the day and use it consecutively for 3 days.
Primer perfection. Makeup primer is an essential step prior to applying your foundation to ensure long-lasting coverage and a flawless finish. We recommend Smooth Affair facial Primer and Brightener to smooth, hydrate and brighten your complexion.
Choose your colour wisely! Especially if you have used a tanner, it’s important to get the perfect foundation by colour matching prior to the day. You want your skin tone to look as natural as possible with no obvious foundation demarcation lines! The secret to a radiant complexion is a foundation that provides even, long-lasting coverage that never looks caked-on. Try jane iredale’s PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation.
Cover up any under eye circles or blemishes with concealer after you have applied foundation. Use different concealers to correct problem areas. jane iredale’s range of concealers has been designed to tackle particular areas of concern. The Enlighten Concealer eliminates any blue, or ashy tones around the eye area, while ActiveLight Under Eye Concealer helps to reduce puffiness and deflects light to create a soft focus effect. The Disappear Concealer with Green Tea ensures any blemish or redness goes unnoticed.
Focus on accentuating your best feature. If you have amazing eyes, play them up and keep lips light and soft, nothing beats a smokey eye and a pale lip! Or if you have a pretty pout, go for a bold lip colour and keep your eyes soft and subtle with a clean eyeliner and neutral tone eye shadows.
Prep the eyelids with jane iredale’s Eye Gloss for crease-free eyeshadow that doesn’t disappear. This quick drying, smooth formula can be used alone or underneath eye shadow. It’s also smudge and water resistant, to help keep those wedding tears from ruining your look.
For perfectly coloured lips, jane iredale’s Lip Fixation is the answer! A dual-ended lip stain and gloss that provides long lasting rich colour that resists, feathering and fading. The gloss accentuates the stain of colour and provides a high shine glass like finish.
Avoid shimmery products as flash photography can emphasis shine. Opt for colours that are brighter and more pigmented. Nude and earthy tones can disappear altogether; ensure you choose darker shades that don’t vanish with a flash. Keep the use of shimmer to a minimum, as they can look too reflective in photos or film and result in a mirror like effect on the skin.
