Classic Makeup for a Wedding
Join us tomorrow!

I love a bold lip as much as the next girl, but sometimes I think keeping it classic for a wedding is a safe route. Whether you are a bride, or attending a wedding, major makeup changes from your norm can end up being distracting sometimes.
I put together this simple step by step that anyone can do. The highlighter, contoured crease of the eye, and bronzer will also ensure that you look healthy and glowing in any photos that are taken on the day! And the best part, as always, will be your bright Designer Smile thanks to Colgate® Optic White® toothpaste!
I like to start with a glowy primer just to add some natural “glow” to my skin.
Add a light shadow across the eyelid. Look for something close to your skin color with a bit of shimmer or reflection.
Add a slightly darker brown to your crease, swiping back and forth to blend it out.
Next add a little bit more depth to the outer crease area, focusing on the outer corner.
Apply a thin line of eyeliner along the upper lash line.
Find your favorite dramatic mascara and apply to make your lashes stand out!
Apply liquid foundation, and then grab a cream highlighter that you love and brighten up the inner corner area of your under eyes and also the tops of your cheeks.
Add bronzer to the outside of your face, working in soft circles to blend it in nicely. Also hit the area right along your jawbone. That is a great trick to make sure your jaw looks separate from your neck in photos.
Apply a bit of light brown liner to your lower lash line and a few light swipes of mascara.
Choose a lipstick you feel really comfortable in to finish! I love a good pink shade, but something a bit more classic would be a nude/pink shade.
Smile big with your beautiful designer smile in photos! Don’t worry so much about if it’s the right angle, or if your hair looks okay when a photographer comes to take a photo of you. Be happy and smile with your entire face! Your insecurities won’t show through, I promise!
