Trend: Barely There Makeup 

The nude look is probably a favorite look for most brides especially with the warm weather and the constant requests of a groom who just wants his bride to look like her natural self.  However this look requires an expert professional to execute the look because of the flawless detail needed to make the skin appear supple, radiant, and contoured without evident layers of makeup. Often times makeup artists like myself use high tech primers and foundation tints to layer the skin while keeping its glow. It is essential to have as much clear skin as possible because of the sheer liquids used on the skin. The products used for this look tend not to conceal problematic skin as effortlessly as cream and powder, due to the transparency of the liquids. So brides-to-be,  start your facial regime a year before the wedding and stack up on fruit and water to assure radiant skin. I love to add loads of mascaras to the eyes and use sheer bronzers to contour the face and highlight the cheekbones. Finish the look with a soft pink or peach lip with a little gloss and you're all set!

Trend: Bold Lips and Retro Liner

This makeup look as recycled itself into the latest once again after the likes of Marilyn Monroe and the Mod 60's. But this chic look almost never goes wrong and can work for any bride whether you choose to do it matte or dewy. This makeup trend is definitely less traditional and more bold than an average bridal look and adds just the right edge for every bride. Pair this look with a great lash and a fuller brow for a more contemporary look. Instead of a red lip try a bold magenta, coral, or even purple to switch things up a bit, its summer!

Trend: Pastel Smokey Eye

We are used to seeing smokey eyes for brides depending on the time or theme of their wedding, but this season makeup artist tried nontraditional color for the eyes to add a different feel for the smokey eye. You can still have much eye drama without the dark colors of navy, black, or gray. Have your makeup artist try pastels like lilac, mint green and baby blue, with a touch of metallic for a statement.  If you are still not feeling those colors you can always layers shades of mocha, chocolate, and bronze to achieve the same effect.



Remember take some risks with a skilled professional and have fun!! Practice and experimenting makes perfect!
