Top 4 Tips for Natural Bridal Makeup

Natural bridal makeup is taking the area by storm. Although it's a classic look, it can become overshadowed by more dramatic styles as the big day approaches. Don't worry that your makeup will be too subtle; there's nothing more memorable than a bride whose true beauty comes shining through. Our natural makeup tips will help you achieve the perfect balance between flawless and naturally radiant.

Airbrush Makeup for a Flawless Finish

If you've been searching for wedding makeup ideas, it makes sense to start with tips for foundation that looks like your skin, only better. At Beauty Asylum, Charlotte wedding makeup starts with skin-perfecting foundation applied to moisturized skin. Primer follows moisturizer for a smooth, clean slate; choose a matte or blur-effect product to avoid shimmer overload. We love that we can actually use less foundation over a layer of primer! Our base of choice for more natural makeup looks is airbrush makeup. Color correction and adjustable coverage are the keys to getting just the right base.

Camera-Ready Eyes

We like to keep eyes soft and simple. Sticking with earth tones allows you to play with lipstick color a little more. A dusting of pink champagne shadow and subtle liner is a good choice if you want to add shimmer. When it comes to brows, avoid over-plucking. You don't have to go with a full-on boy brow, but natural-looking brows are having their extended moment for a reason. And if you love the way fake lashes make your eyes pop, opt for individually applied lashes instead of strips. The look is full and luscious yet fits in beautifully with the rest of your natural bridal makeup.

Blushing Bride

Our favorite makeup looks almost always include a sun-kissed glow. Shades of peach blush are flattering on everyone, so start with a dusting for the perfect faux flush. Bronzer gives you that day-at-the-beach look with very little effort. Bronzer is our desert-island choice for a quick pick-me-up before work, so imagine what it can do when combined with our other wedding makeup ideas! Apply sparingly to the forehead, bridge of your nose and chin to instantly transform your complexion. 

Picture-Perfect Lips

One of our top natural makeup tips is influenced by natural-look pioneer Bobbi Brown's philosophy. Lips are where you get your chance to inject a little extra color. The trick is to keep lipstick close to your own natural color but up the intensity level. Lip color will look natural yet eye-catching, both in person and on camera. Start with nude lip liner for a perfect shape. Don't be tempted to create a fuller lip by straying too far outside your lip line; plump up your lips instead. Start with a lip scrub, followed by a natural plumping product and a primer for staying power. After applying lip color, place a dot of shimmery eyeshadow or gloss at the cupid's bow and the center of your lower lip. You'll have luscious lips that still look like your own.
