Choosing the Right Makeup - Bold Lip Colours with Minimalist Eye Make Up
We have seen it on the latest red carpet events and runways! Less is definitely more this season as the minimalist eye makeup has made a come-back as the most sought after wedding makeup trend that today's brides are looking for. A wedding is an affair where the bride is the star of the occasion and wants to look her best. Creating the perfect wedding look can be the hardest part as you don't want to get that "too-less" makeup look nor do you want to overdo it.
The idea is to get that perfect balance of a minimalist and subtle eye makeup with a bold dramatic lip colour. By choosing the right products for the look you can assure an appearance worthy of many compliments. To help you get this desired wedding look, you can also enlist the help of a professional bridal beauty specialist like Bodycraft Spa and Salon. Their wedding makeup consultants can not only help you to ace your minimalist wedding eye look but can also arrange for pre-wedding trails to ensure that everything goes smoothly on the day.
Perfecting Your Minimalist Bridal Look:
Bridal Makeup Basics
As the focus of this look is mostly on the lips here, it is important to make your skin look completely flawless. Using a lightweight tinted moisturizer, even out your skin tone and use a concealer if necessary to cover any imperfections of the skin. You can then finish off with a light dusting of translucent powder to eliminate shine in any oily areas.
Shape Your Eyebrows
To give your face more definition, get your eyebrows shaped with the help of a professional. For those with scanty brows, you can fill them lightly using a brow pencil in a light neutral shade. For a more natural effect, use a brown powder and brush to go over this shape using a stippling technique.
Soft and Neutral Eye Shades
When going for a minimalist eye makeup for your wedding, you can use a light concealer in place of eye shadow above and below your eyes. If you want to make your eyes look a little brighter, you can apply a light creamy shadow like a delicate peachy shade or a shimmery beige or ivory shadow. Apply the shadow to your lids and the inner corners of your eyes using a brush that is not too dense to avoid using too much product.
Extra Eye Definition
To make your lashes appear longer, use an eyelash curler beginning at the root and pressing the curler for about 10 seconds. For added definition, apply a little eye liner and mascara in a soft brown instead of black. Waterproof mascara is always a good choice; it's longer lasting and won't run even if you shed a few tears of joy.
Prepping Your Lips
Next, make your lips smooth and soft before applying any bold lip shade with the help of a lip balm. Once the lip balm has penetrated your lips, use a tissue to take off any excess balm before applying your lip colour.
Create a template for the colour using a liner. The trick is to select a liner that matches your natural lip colour and not the lipstick. You can also highlight and perfect your lip line by adding a little cream based concealer and then defining the corner of your lips using a brush.
Adding the Lip Colour
Bright and bold lips are a popular bridal look. It’s quick, look-defining and best of all, there's a bold lip shade that matches every skin tone. You can apply the desired lip colour using a lip brush for precision and then set the colour using oil blotting sheets or a translucent light weight powder. Popular among the bold lip shades is the classic red colour which can help you to channel a little old-school glamour. If you are looking for the more playful options, you can also select a bright pink or rich berry lip shade for your bridal look.
