Bridal Makeup for Black Skin
Healthy, Glowing Skin
Any skincare or makeup artist will assure you healthy skin is the key to getting that beautiful wedding day glow!
Water helps keeps your skin hydrated helping to avoid breakouts and minimize other skin problems. The benefits of drinking water aren’t a secret but many of us fall short of the recommended “6 to 8 glasses per day.”
When it comes to breakouts which are common with the stress of wedding planning, there are some simple ways to avoid them. …never go to bed with your makeup on, know your skin type and moisturize your skin day and night.” I highly recommendecommends facials which will “lift dead skin cells” and help maintain that healthy glow.
I could be a little bias but I believe makeup is one of the most important things in the world, at least for your wedding day. Everyone’s looking at your dress and of course your face, taking notice of how beautiful you are. So it’s important to not overlook these important tips
I possible “book facial appointments at least 6-8 weeks before the wedding” in case there are any skin sensitivity concerns such as allergic reactions. “Healthy, glowing skin is a must for a beautiful bride.” Beautiful makeup will always begin with great skin!
If you looked at the beauty industry a few years ago, it’d be hard to find your perfect shade of foundation as a woman of color. But today, you don’t have to look far to get that flawless bridal glow. With brands like Fenty, Estee Lauder, Nars, Bobbi Brown, Black Opal and Lancome, and many more shade ranges are diverse to match your exact base color and undertone. Whether you’re hiring a makeup artist for the wedding day or like to apply makeup yourself, finding a foundation that provides the right amount of coverage is equally important. You’ll also need to consider a foundation’s formula along with your skin type. A dewier finish works better for dry skin, whereas a matte finish is ideal for oilier skin. Switching this order is a surefire way to make your face look parched or greasy at the end of the night—and nobody wants that.
Natural Makeup for low key brides
For low-key brides, achieving an effortless natural makeup “I just woke up like this” look is a dream come true. The overall goal is to look like the best version of yourself, which provides a timelessness you’ll appreciate when you look back at your wedding photos years later. To create this look, an even canvas is key with subtle enhancements—meaning soft blush and an earth-toned smoky eye. Highlighting and contouring with products that are only a few shades different from your actual skin tone will add a pop to your features, while dark eyeliners and mascara define your eyes. Since this natural makeup look is so simple, you can incorporate some show-stealing false eyelashes along with a pink-to-brown nude lipstick for extra glam.
Soft Glam Bridal Makeup
Want to glam it up a little. Deeper colors like plum, burgundy, chocolate and scarlet flatter melanin-rich skin tones. These vibrant hues work well when used as an eye shadow, blush or lipstick. Your skin’s undertone, along with your hair and eye color, will clue you in to how far you can go. What’s most important, however, is that you feel confident and beautiful with a bolder makeup look. To enhance your lovely face further, make sure to contour and highlight with golden and bronze tones. Another option to consider for black bride’s who wants to stand out is a golden or bronzy tones with strong eyeliner, which often complements darker skin and simpler bridal gowns.
