Bridal Beauty: Bridesmaid Makeup

Often times bridesmaids’ choices are fairly limited when it comes to picking a dress, shoes or hairstyle. While sometimes the attire isn’t what we would pick ourselves, it’s always important to be gracious to the bride and respectful and considerate of her feelings. If the bride does give you freedom when it comes to your beauty routine we have several tips to help you navigate through your bridesmaid makeup options.

Our National Makeup Artist, Kate, recommends picking a look that is natural and pretty while staying in tune with the color of your dress and the overall theme of the wedding. Kate created a versatile look that is both fresh and elegant on our model Kaitlyn. You can recreate this look using the following products:

Protective Liquid Foundation - Satin II
Bronze in sunkiss
Precise Micro Eyeliner in black
Eye Shadow in mink, opal, orchid, lilac
Precise Micro Lipliner in pale magenta
Lipstick in bella

Bridesmaid Makeup Dos and Don’ts
DO practice before the big day. If you are doing your own makeup be sure to take pictures of yourself to verify your choices translate on camera.
DON’T use this as the time to try any new popular trends. You want to keep the look timeless and classic.
DO apply a bit more foundation than usual. With all of your duties you won’t have much time for touch ups and you’ll be taking lots of photos so start the day well prepared.
DON’T forget the Water Resistant Mascara! Your best friend is getting married so the water works are sure to start!
