If you plan on D.I.Y. bridal makeup this summer, I have the high quality, made in USA makeup to achieve a beautiful and long lasting application.  This look is for a bride in search of a soft, romantic, and timeless-beauty face for their wedding day.

Get a flawless complexion.

Summer bridal makeup is all about using as little makeup as possible (so it doesn't melt off). Even out your complexion by applying primer, then foundation, covering imperfections with concealer, and adding color back into your cheeks for a gorgeous glow.


Romanticize the eyes.

Enhance the beauty of your eye color here.  Open up yours eyes – critical for photos – with mascara.  Lastly don't neglect your brows.  Make sure they are shaped before the day of the wedding.  Eyebrows are the frame of your face; fill them in to define.


When you select your eyeshadow choose a neutral shade for all over your lid and shades darker for the crease to create subtle dimension.  Hints of mauve are great for green eyes, gold for brown eyes, and brown for blue eyes.  Try the Urban Decay Naked Palette.

Create a soft, smooth and pretty lip.

Make sure you have exfoliated your lips so they are plump and free of dry skin.  Since this look is all about the eyes and gorgeous skin, choose a neutral lip shade that is conditioning and not drying.

Ultimately you want your wedding day makeup to be a true reflection of your personal style and timeless beauty.
