The Big wedding day comes with a lot of expectations, plans, and various other things to put in place, or consider doing. The bride having her makeup done is one of the various things one would find on the infamous ‘to-do-list’. We know there are different strokes for different folks; while some brides go with the nude, and extremely soft looks, other brides gun for a more bold, and ‘statement-making’ look. Brides that want to go soft intend to look the same, without it being obvious that a makeover was done..”my husband should still be able to recognize me oo”..lol….
Check out some photos of soft glam looks below; just soft touches, without doing too much:
Moving on.. For the extra bold bride, you want to go for less ‘awww’, and more ‘yasss!!!’; that ‘va-va-voom’ element has to be felt when your guests see you, and especially when bae takes off the veil. With this group of people, more intense colours for the eyes, are used, and of course, to finish off the look, they use bold coloured lip stains as well; that is the reds, the dark pinks, the purples, the maroons, and what have you.
Oh yaassss, honey!!!
While we are basking in both looks, let’s not forget that as there are both ways to go, that is, soft glam, or bold beat, there also is an ‘on-the-fence’ way to deal with it. This group of people go both routes, but balance it up nicely. I like to call this kind of makeup ‘soft with a dash of pop’- it is not too mild, and at the same time, you do not go all out. You still get the natural look, as well as the extra, which is where the ‘pop’ comes in.
Take a look at photos of the ‘soft with a dash of pop’ kind of bridal makeup below:
With the first picture, we would realize that the entire look is soft, but where the pop comes in is the highlighter in the bride’s inner tear duct, and her contour, which stands out, the second picture is also natural, but pops out with the golden shimmery eye shadow, giving the complete ‘soft with a dash of pop’ makeup finish.
How about the ‘smokey eyed’ lot?? Let’s end this piece with those bridezillas. These are the extra extra bold ones, who always insist on smokey eyes; that is, no matter what colour you use on their eyes, a shade of black, or highly pigmented shade of any other dark colour like brown, must be added to the corner of the eyelids, and around the crease, to give it the smoked-up look.
But Hey!!! what ever rocks your boat, darling. Just do you!
