Step-By-Step Bridal Makeup Tutorial from Shaziya Samiya's blog

Getting married is a momentous occasion in every woman’s life; it is the start of her new life with a new family. So it’s no wonder that every bride wants to look her very best on her wedding day. If you’re one of those brides who wishes to not go overboard with extravagant makeup artists and have been wondering about how to do bridal makeup on your own, here is a step-by-step bridal makeup tutorialjust for you.

Start by cleansing your skin and follow it up with a thin layer of primer on your face, eyelids and neck. An expert-recommended makeup tip, primer evens out your complexion and increases the longevity of makeup ensuring that it stays intact for hours. Just what you need for your wedding day!

Next, start with your eye makeup. The reason we begin with eye makeup is because of the eye shadow fallout that can be dusted off easily before moving on to the face. To begin, apply a nude eye shadow all over the eyelid. Follow this by applying a bronze shade in the crease of the eye. In the outer corner, pat a small amount of black eye shadow. Blend these shades together with a blending brush. Over the lid in the centre of the eye, apply a shimmering gold shade of eye shadow. Using a narrow applicator brush, apply this same shade under the brow bone and in the inner corner of the eye. Ensure that all the edges of each colour are blended together for a seamless look. Next, use a liquid eyeliner to line the lash line and create a wing on the outer corner of the eye. Use gentle, small strokes to get a precise line. Apply two coats of mascara on your upper and lower eyelashes to get full, voluminous lashes. Finish off the eye makeup look by filling in the blank spaces in your brows to give them a defined finish without going overboard.

To begin with the next step of your bridal makeup, dust away fallout of eye shadow and dot liquid foundation all over your face and neck. Use a buffing brush to blend it into your skin well. Then choose a concealer shade that’s slightly lighter than your skin tone and apply it under your eye area and over any blemishes. Use a damp makeup sponge to blend it into the skin.

To give your cheeks a flush of colour, dust a bit of blush on a fluffy brush and dab it onto the apples of your cheeks. As you blend it into the skin, move your brush towards your temples. Then use a fan brush to dust highlighter on your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and the centre of your chin. To give your face a slimmer appearance for your bridal makeup look, contouring your face is the makeup tip you need. Do so by dusting bronzer across your temples, under your jawline and under your cheeks and blending it thoroughly into your skin.

To finish off your bridal makeup look, apply red lipstick over your lips. And there you have it, a dazzling beauty look that’s fit for a bride-to-be!
