The Model before beginning the Bridal Makeup
For a photogenic face, use 2 colors of foundation; the first one should be the same color of your skin, and is applied all over your face and under your jaw line. The second should be two shades darker, and is applied on areas which you want to make appear smaller like the nose, cheeks, forehead etc. Finally, apply the concealer (anticerne), which should be two shades lighter than your skin color to brighten up under the eyes and the center of the face. Finally, set it up with powder of the same shade of your correction.
As for the eyes, apply on eyelids and under the eyebrows a beige eye shadow. On the bone of your eye, use a medium color brown (blend well) and the same medium color under your lower lash line.
Use a dark brown shadow in the crease of the eye and under your lower lash line, blend well.
Apply liquid black eyeliner on the upper lash line, line lips with a natural color. Apply a peach color blusher on the apple of your cheeks. And finally, apply false eyelashes.
Apply a natural nude color on the lips. Now you have a natural make up for a natural bride, the final photo is just to show you that the flash of the camera will take away 50% of the make up. So if you’re going for a day wedding don’t overdo the makeup so it will not appear to bold in the pictures, since the photographer won’t be using flash.
In day light weddings, use light & natural makeup because the photographer doesn’t use the camera flash. However, in indoors & evening events and since you will be exposed to projector lights & camera flashes, the intensity of the makeup will look less in photos because of the previously mentioned causes.
