Natural Bridal Makeup Tips

This post originally appeared as "Painted Ladies" on our old blog, Born to be a Bride.

My natural-look wedding makeup

We spoke last week about my obsession with makeup, so it might surprise you that for my wedding I opted for a somewhat natural look. Granted, we’re talking natural with the aid of major lash extensions, a perfectly matched foundation and bronzer combo, three layers of subtle eye shading, liner, and a nude lipstick from Tom Ford.


But I swear, I did not look “made up” on the big day. I love a bold makeup look on a bride, but for our beach nuptials, I wanted something more muted. For fun, I had them do a less dramatic eye than mine on the bridesmaids, but amp things up with a bold lip. Wow, did they look gorg!

I am super-picky when it comes to makeup, and I was thrilled to find someone who gets it. Book her for your wedding! Seriously, you will be thrilled (and so will your spouse-to-be!).

The link you mentioned above is not working. Please suggest another online store for Bridal makeup. I want this for my sister's wedding which will be on the second day after Christmas. If you have any idea of the Christmas sale and concession on christmas coupons then let me know.
