Wedding season is upon us so Bobbi popped by NBC’s Today Show (she’s their official Beauty Editor) to create a pair of easy, beautiful looks for two very different kinds of brides: City and Beach.
Before Bobbi got to work, she shared a few of her favorite bridal beauty tricks that work wherever your wedding will be—from sticking to yellow-toned foundation (so you always look flawless even when that camera flash goes off), to opting for long-wearing eye shadow and waterproof mascara for makeup that lasts long after the bouquet’s been caught.
Plus, make sure to layer your blush with a cream formula first, then dust a pop of powder blush on top. Brides tend to get faded running around all day and this little layering tip keeps your cheek color fresh and pretty.
Now, bring on the brides…
This look is all about sophistication and understated elegance with dark eyes and a brighter-than-you’re-used-to lip.
Lips: For a lip that lasts, she chose to layer Plum Rose Rich Lip Color first, then used Rose Lip Liner to outline and fill in the bride’s lips after. The final touch? A swipe of Popsicle Sheer Lip Gloss for polished shine.
Eyes: To get standout eyes that last, Bobbi started with a neutral base, using Bone Eye Shadow. Next, she lined the eyes with Black Ink Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner and topped the look off with false lashes. If you’re not into false lashes, try Intensifying Long-Wear Mascara.
A more relaxed look with “sexy-hippie” appeal, the beach-bound bride should focus on bronzy skin with subtle shimmer.
Cheeks: To keep skin looking sun-kissed, Bobbi applied our soft matte Bronzing Powder to the forehead, cheeks and neck. Next, she dusted Maui Illuminating Bronzer on the cheeks for a natural-looking glow, blending the whole time. A touch of Shimmer Brick to just the tops of the bride’s cheekbones brought an even prettier shine.
Lips: For a really natural look with a hint of glimmer, Bobbi added Spun Gold Lip Gloss.
Eyes: Bobbi started with Bone Eye Shadow as a base and added a final touch of twinkle with Silver Moon Sparkle Eye Shadow on the lower lid. For extra definition, add Caviar Ink Long-Wear Eye Gel Liner and Intensifying Long-Wear Mascara.
After all, on your wedding day you should look like yourself but at your most beautiful.
