5 Steps to Get the Minimalist Bridal Makeup

1. Prep Your Skin

Nykaa Cosmetics Prep Me Up! Mini Primer

Prepping your skin before applying makeup is essential to create a flawless base. Start with a rich, hydrating cream and massage it all over your face and neck in a circular motion. For eyes, use a moisturizing cream or a nourishing under-eye gel that will help smoothen and hydrate your delicate under eye area. Lastly, never forget to hydrate your lips. Finish your skin prep with a primer that will help keep your makeup intact and make it last for hours, no touch ups needed.

2. A Soft Dewy Finish For The Win

The secret to getting that flawless wedding makeup look is to ensure that your foundation looks like second skin. Use the bare minimum for a natural, dewy finish. If you are blessed with clear skin and a good complexion, a tinted BB cream will do the trick. You can also opt for a sheer illuminating tint or light-reflecting creams that hydrate the skin and deliver a lit-from-within effect. Use a creamy concealer to hide all your dark spots, pigmentation and discolouration and use a setting powder to set your makeup in place.

3. Radiate Your Inner Bridal Glow

For a natural-looking flush, use a cream-based blush as it diffuses and blends into the skin seamlessly. Follow it up with a contouring cream for a sculpted look. Apply it on your cheekbones, forehead and bridge of your nose and blend away.

4. Let Your Eyes Do the Talking

MyGlamm POPxo 12 Eyeshadow Kit - Nood Crew

For bridal eye makeup, you can experiment with subtle shades, but avoid matching your eyeshadow exactly with the colour of your outfit. It’s a complete no-no. Instead, you can opt for neutral or nude shades that work best for all skin tones. Opt for a smudged out smokey to add subtle definition to your eyes. Brush your brows and fill in the sparse areas and finish with a coat of waterproof mascara.

5. Say No to Dark Lips

While opting for a simple wedding makeup look, bold and dark lips are typically not the best choice. A long-lasting lip gloss, lip tint or nude lipstick would work best for your natural-looking makeup look. You can go for a matte or cream-based formula that stays long and is comfortable to wear.
