Peachy Vibes + Soft Eyes

I love this monochromatic peach look that brightens the whole face. You can choose to go slightly softer on the eyelid with the intensity of the shadow, peach is a beautiful tone to use when creating bridal makeup looks because it still gives the romantic vibe you're going for, but with an unexpected color. If you want to add shimmer, apply a champagne shadow on top of the peach for highlight. This look inspires you to go in a slightly different direction than the standard mauve and plum tones most brides gravitate towards.

The Classic Flick + Rosy Cheeks

I love a traditional cat eye flick for brides because it really looks beautiful when paired with a statement gown. Depending on your eye shape you can determine how thin or thick you want the cat eye liner to be, and then go from there. For instance, almond shaped eyes can get away with a slightly thicker liner than other eye shapes because of how the eyelid is still visible when eyes are open. Choose a waterproof liner that will hold up to all of the elements on your big day (you know, incase you get a little misty-eyed) and apply individual lash extensions to the lashes for a full and natural lash look.

Sexy + Sultry Smoke

Most women tend to go pretty natural with makeup on their wedding day, but for the daring few who want to break away from the mold and try something different, a smoky eye is the perfect way to start. I love creating more dramatic looks for brides because it really opens up the doors to so many different products and techniques that happen to be a lot of fun. If you have an evening wedding or your nuptials fall on a holiday like New Years Eve, try giving something a bit more dressier a try. The key is keeping it balanced and not having a ton of drama all at once. Pairing smoky eyes with a nude lip and lightly contoured skin with highlight is a beautiful way to make a statement on your wedding day.

Bushy Brows + Chic Lips

I love the simplicity of this makeup look and how it beautifully defines the face in a natural way. When I am creating makeup looks for brides, I often find they want to look extremely natural but slightly more elevated for their special day. Focusing on the eyebrows to ensure they are full and shaped properly, along with lightly highlighting the skin, defining the eyes, and adding a pop of color is a great way to enhance ever so slightly. If you have thinner brows and want to make them fuller for your big day, try this brow growth treatment serum to help. 

For radiant skin, prep first with this Argan oil and coconut water primer before applying foundation for a sheer glow and hydrated finish.

Jewel Tones + Glowing Skin

Lining the entire eye with a jewel-toned eyeliner is a great way to make your eyes stand out and incorporate color at the same time. The fun part about jewel tones is they come in several variations. Whether you choose blue, emerald green, purple, or a smoky quartz color, they all deliver the result of popping the eye color. Blend a neutral shadow in the crease of the eyes and apply cream blush to the apples of the cheeks, tying it all together with a soft lip, in which you can even apply a little gloss on top.
