So you are to be the bridesmaid for your best friend’s wedding or the maid of honor at your elder sister’s marriage. That does not make you any way less significant than the bride herself and you cannot afford to look like a mere simpleton dressed in your every day garb. For it is indeed a crucial role you are going to play in being with the bride all through and witnessing the whole process of marriage standing by her side. So pick up your makeup kits and try these tips to don a look that will not overpower that of the bride but yet make your role prominent.
Put on the Right Foundation:
This is an important day when you will be clicked for most of the time so time to give your face a good foundation with a primer and then a matte foundation that will not make your countenance appear blotchy. Choose a tone that matches your own skin tone and go for it. Once the foundation has been laid spruce it up with microfinish translucent powder which keeps your skin hydrated while not melting the makeup after a few hours even if it is a scorching summer day.
Go by the Wedding Theme:
Is it a vintage themed wedding or a bohemian sort? Are you planning for a beach wedding reception? Consider the theme of the wedding to understand how your makeup should be planned. For a vintage look run a black liner along the border of your upper eyelids to make them dark and follow it up with a streak of gold powdery shadow along the crease. To get the perfect bohemian look use a soft shadow in copper hue and get along the crease in wide fashion. Apply a whole lot of mascara and use a mineralized lip shade to deck up your lips. Bronzer is a must if you are heading towards a beach wedding. Make your cheek bones prominent by opting for a bronzer than is a shade darker than your actual skin tone. Do up with peaches and pinks in merry shades for the rest of your face.
For the Smoky Eye Look:
If you wish to add a tinge of drama to your bridesmaid look go for the smoky eyes demeanor. For this, use a neutral color liner along the lash line and apply a silver or gray colored shade to smudge up from the crease to the lash line. Choose a jewel toned eye liner or a solid black one to run along the crease and blend it towards the brow bone to a little extent. Use a soft eye shadow brush for blending the color and then use your fingers to blend it further with a sparkly white shadow.
