Do you ever look at a picture of someone (or a couple) and think “they look like the picture frame picture!” You know, when you buy a new picture frame and it’s the picture that sits in the background of the frame…picture perfect if you will.
Meet Tiffany & Preston.
Tiffany and Preston got married on a beautiful sunny day in Lee’s Summit at The Stanley and it made the perfect backdrop for photos. Natural beauty goes a long way on a wedding day and I truly think that accentuating your features will always produce the best look on camera.
Tiffany made a gorgeous bride because she paid attention to detail, but she didn’t go overboard. She knew she wanted big lashes, but on top of that we kept everything else complimentary. Her pink glossy lips paired perfectly with her soft smokey eyeshadow. Her hair and bouquet were beautiful on their own, but with that dress of hers she knocked it out of the park!
Sometimes brides overthink their makeup look for their wedding day and I too, was guilty of it.
Here’s the thing though…
If you stick with neutral makeup, take great care of your skin and visit your spa regularly to keep brows polished and shaped, you truly cannot go wrong. You want to look like the best version of yourself and you do that by wearing makeup that compliments your skin tone, with colors that are warm and brightening. Stick with a smokey eye that uses shades of brown and/or plum. A lot of brides will bring pictures to their trial and they’ll show me a picture of a black shaded smokey eye. If you are on the fair to light side, this will not compliment your skin the way you want it to. Black can fade the skin, turning it pale.
If you’re someone who never wears winged eyeliner, please do not pick a look that has liner extended to your temple. You will regret it just like any other trend of the moment when you look at your photos in a few years. A clean and fresh makeup look will take you further than anything else and it’s what makes a bride glow.
Never worry, classic makeup will always be in style and it will always look good in pictures.
