By  |  0 Comments

The look for your big day should be classic and not trendy. Your look should reflect something that will be modern 20 years from now. There are a multitude of looks you can do in conjunction with one of these popular options such as highlighting and contouring the face, tight-lining the eyes, or simply adding a bit a shimmer to a classic smokey eye. The trick to choosing one of these looks is to choose one that best suits you—your signature look with a pop. Customize your look for your big day!

Smokey Bride

This look is for la novia atrevida, a bride willing to take risks. The smokey bride does not have to be a heavy rocker chick clad in black: There are many levels of colors to choose from. Smokey can be a chocolate brown, a charcoal gray, a royal purple, or any deep shade that you choose. For added glitz, sprinkle some shimmer on top. The smokey eye looks best when paired with a natural lip color.

Old Hollywood Glam

Thank Marilyn Monroe for this one. The Hollywood glam look is for una chica moderna—a woman confident in her own skin. Pulling off a red on a regular day, like Marilyn, takes guts. Rocking it for your wedding day brings a big wow factor, especially when done right.

There is a perfect red for everyone out there. Fair-skinned women look great in reds with a little pink. Medium tones and olive complexions look great in reds with orange. Darker-skinned women look great in brick reds. All of these looks are red carpet ready.

Glowing Skin

Is there anyone who doesn’t want that glowing skin look? No matter the age, everyone wants to look flawless and radiant. One person who pulled this look off best is none other than Jennifer Lopez. Her artist, Scott Barnes, practically created that signature glowy skin.

This look is absolutely perfect for brides because It gives a lit-from-within look. The first thing is to have a great skin care regimen so that you’re not faking this glow: Choose a moisturizer that will support the look and give you radiance.

If you have to fake it, there is an array of products to achieve this like powder and liquid highlighters and bronzers. Let’s not confuse shiny with radiant, though—you don’t want your skin to look artificial. It is important to be strategic and place matte setting powder where needed.
