Palm Beach Wedding Makeup

If you're looking for a gorgeous Palm Beach wedding look, read on. The makeup you wear on your special day should be flattering, beautiful and waterproof in case you shed a few tears of joy. The first step when doing any makeup look is a good base. Start with a clean, dry face. Apply moisturizer to plump up the skin. If you have dry skin, you'll want a creamy formula. For oily skin, choose a light lotion or gel.

Next, apply a makeup primer. Makeup primer creates a perfectly smooth surface and helps your makeup last longer. There are several companies that make great primers including MAC and Smashbox. Let the primer absorb into the skin for a few minutes, then apply foundation. Foundation should be a close match to your natural skin tone. There are many different formulas you can choose including liquid, cream, powder and even stick. Use a creamy concealer to disguise any blemishes or dark undereye circles. Finish your base with a dusting of translucent loose powder.

Now it's time to add color and contour. Sweep on powder bronzer with a big fluffy brush to give your skin a beachy glow. Then, add a pinky peach blush on apples of cheeks. Pinky peach is a universally flattering color that looks great on everyone. Choose a formula that has light shimmer but is not frosty. To accentuate your eyes, use a light brown shadow on lids. Add a darker brown to the crease and blend gently to right below the browbone. On the browbone and at the inner corner of lids apply a shimmery pale shadow which acts as a brightener for the eye. Next, apply a dark brown or black liner to upper lids only. Curl lashes and finish with two coats of mascara.

The final step for your Palm Beach wedding makeup look is the lips. Prepare the lips by applying a light balm. Let the balm absorb for five minutes before continuing. Then line the lips with a nude lip liner and fill in with the same liner. This gives a natural look. Use a peachy pink lipstick, similar to the color of your blush on the lips. Blot gently. You may want to go for a long lasting, transfer-proof formula like Revlon Colorstay or Max Factor Lipfinity. Apply a dot of shimmery gloss on the middle of the lower lip, which will make your lips look fuller. Now you've got a natural yet beautiful wedding look that will take you from vows to cake and beyond!
