Lover.ly recently contacted me with a great idea of pairing my makeup looks with some of their dresses and I was like HECK YEAH! What is better than looking at wedding dresses, besides eating cake…nothing!. So I put on my Sex and the City movie and started obsessively looking at all of the wedding dresses on their site. 2 hours later, I realized that I wasn’t actually getting married again and I needed to start working on look ideas.
Since I could not bring myself to narrow my search down to one dress I decided to create 3 different makeup looks.
These two looks scream beachy, glowy, dewy skin to me. Think Gisele Bündchen or Nia Long. I would pair the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation with their Illuminator to achieve the dewy skin. You will also need bronzer for the face and a highlight for the cheekbone, nose and cupids bow, I typically use Guerlain and MAC for those categories. A little bit of bronze eyeshadow and mascara (or some individual falsies) on the eyes and some sheer lip color on the lips complete this look.
Everyone knows, or should know, that I love a red lip. I would definitely tap into my retro vibe with this look. Think matte skin, defined brows, winged liner, and matte red lips. I would also do Dita Von Teese hair but that’s just me.
These two looks definitely make me want smokey eyes and pinky nude lips. These looks are romantic and glamorous. I chose the Nude’Tude Palette from theBalm because with this palette you can easily create a variety of smoky eye looks. Pair this look with dramatic lashes, peachy/pinky cheeks and some “my lips but better” lip colors.
Now that you have seen my makeup looks, run over to Lover.ly and obsess! Also, in case you guys were curious about my own wedding, I did my hair and makeup, wore a glamorous mermaid style dress and had a ratchet reception! Cheers!
