How To Do Bridal Makeup Looks
This VideoJug film is about applying bridal makeup. Professional makeup artist, Suzanne Rosenberg, explains step-by-step how to apply bridal makeup using a warm palette. She suggests specific brands and colors, while including some great tips to keep your makeup looking great throughout your special day.
I'm going to show you how to achieve a simple bridal look using these products. I've got a Revlon Photo-Ready foundation. I'm also going to use some Smashbox primer, which will help for the many lines and minimize pores as well and I'm going to start with the Bobbi Brown eye cream, which will prep the eye area.
It's also light diffusing, and that's the eye cream. Just a little bit of this on the finger, and [look up for me] just apply there. This also will ensure that your under-eye concealer will blend seamlessly.
Just that you need a pin-head amount, and just blend. And on that side. Next, I'm going to apply primer.
Put a little blob on the hand, Smashbox, and gently apply around the areas that you want to conceal, any fine lines, open pores. So, a little bit on the forehead, like that, and blend. This will also help in the day to keep your makeup on, very important for those wedding photos.
Around the mouth, any around there, any open pores, on the cheek area. I'm using the Cosmetics ID face powder in translucent, a little bit on my hand, and what you can do on the day is keep a compact with you, so if you need to retouch any shine, you can just apply during the day. That's a little tip.
It's always good with bridal makeup to have a trial consultation beforehand, so you can decide what colors work best for you, and so that the day goes a lot seamlessly, and you can choose what colors and decide that with your makeup artist beforehand. Now, I'm going to apply the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Duo underneath Sue's eyes. I'm going to use my finger because then my finger will help blend the product in.
We've already prepped with the moisturizer, and I just literally pat that in under the eyes. I've got an eye shadow base by Estee Lauder, and here again using my finger. Prep the eye with this, literally a completely neutral shade.
This will help your eye shadow stay put for the day. The eye shadow will look more true, and again, get rid of any pink and blueness on the eyes, neutralizes that totally. I just pop that on and blend that in.
That's it. From my Mac palette, I'm going to use a shade called Shroom. It's that shade there, and I'm going to use that from the eyelash through to the brow bone.
With a large, flat brush, and apply it over the eye area - really pretty, subtle, shimmer color - and concentrate putting it on the brow bone area as a highlighter. From the same palette I've created for myself, I'm going to use another shade called Honesty. This is a really pretty kind of like a molten gold and sort of a very subtle shimmer through it as well.
And I'm going to apply that on the lid, and up to the socket, and blending up through. I'm using warm shades for Sue because her skin's got quite a warm complexion, so these really suit. The ashy, the grey colors will wash and not flatter her at all, so I'm sticking to warm colors.
Now, I'm going to use with a different brush. I'm going to choose a domed brush. Mac Mulch, it's like a really nice warm brown and with a slight shimmer through it, really flattering.
And put that just on the outer corner and then a little bit in the socket as well. It's kind of creating like a C-shape on the eye, keeping that bit light, which will open up the eyes, and blending away, look up for me, and finally, I'm going to use from the Mac palette again, like a really pretty goldy color. That one and just put that in the corner.
That will just open the eyes a little bit. Light colors open up. Dark colors kind of close in the eyes.
So, try to keep it light on the outer corner. Here's some nice, really pretty molten gold. I'm going to use this for eyeliner, the Prestige waterproof, which you don't need to sharpen.
It's got a nice, fine point on it. And I'm just going to put this on the upper lid and blend that across. So, it's really soft, this one too, and it'll last all day.
