Bridal Test Makeup


Bridal test makeup

Sit back and relax

Getting ready for the big day can be so stressful, but getting your makeup done should be one of the most relaxing experiences. One of the things I feel is a benefit to getting older, is experience.  I am thankful that I have dealt with a lot of challenging circumstances, demands, and products that have enabled me to understand 'modern' makeup and the differences between 'neutral' and 'natural'.  The look for the bridal makeup test is neutral, which means that I'm using colours and shades that are neutral in tone (think earthy colours which are various shades of browns).  I think these days, neutral looks are modern styles of makeup.  If you take a look on Instagram, most of the makeup looks are neutral in tone, but can either be full on in terms of product application, or take on the 'less is more' approach.  

Why natural makeup?

In my opinion, a 'natural' makeup is that which makes you look like a better version of you.  Sometimes it's hard to know what kind of look will make you look like a better version of yourself, without going overboard (trust me it's easy to do!).  I would start with eyeliner in the lashes, mascara, a light bronzer, groomed and shaped brows, and a lip colour that's no more than 1 shade darker then your natural lip colour.   If after you've applied this, feel like 'there's something missing', then you can experiment with eye shadow.  I find that starting with the basics first, will prevent potential makeup pitfalls.

So, what next?
