Natural bridal beauty is a common request from our clients and we are happy to provide. We love to create dramatic and glamorous makeup looks but that is not always what makes every client the most comfortable. When deciding on what type of makeup application we are going to provide for our clients a good place to begin is with a natural makeup.
The Natural Makeup
The natural makeup is an excellent place to start when deciding on a look for your wedding day. Natural makeup begins by slightly enhancing your fresh face. The makeup featured above starts with a sheer to medium coverage foundation that resembles the natural skin. We used MAC Face and Body foundation with MAC skin perfecting powder to set. We added a pale pink blush and lip slightly deeper than the natural lip and cheek. Eyes were enhanced with neutral brown shadows and black mascara. Finally we filled in the brows with powder that compliments the hair, this frames the eyes and finish the look. This is just enough makeup for a natural beauty and a great place to start for someone who may want to go more dramatic because it is so easy to build upon.
The Styled Shoot
The styled shoot was created by an incredible team of wedding vendors here in Asheville, NC. The dress was designed by Angela Kim Couture. Angela asked for the makeup to be soft and romantic, natural but enhanced and this is what we came up with. Natural bridal beauty. The shoot was featured in the Asheville Wedding Guide, where you can see other stunning details and vendor offerings. Photo by Jennifer Callahan Photography makeup by Doll Box Beauty
If you have started researching beauty options for your wedding you are probably asking yourself airbrush or traditional makeup? The good news is that the Doll Box Beauty team offers you both options. How do you decide? Lets discuss what each has to offer.
You know it, you love it, it’s the original. Traditional makeup, we use it every day but here’s what you need to know about using it for your big day. Traditional makeup offers a lot of options which is why it is so highly requested. An experienced artist will have several product options on hand that are long wearing for the needs of an event that will last all day. Here we have the power to decide if we want sheer natural coverage or the fullest coverage Instagram style glam. Traditional makeup gives us all the options in the moment and ease in adjusting as we go. Traditional is a great option and we love to use it, but what about airbrush?
Why Airbrush Makeup
Airbrush makeup has become very popular amongst brides and bridal parties. Airbrush offers a very lightweight feel while delivering coverage and long wear. The formulation of airbrush foundations is very thin so it is not as capable of giving heavy coverage if that is the preference of the client, but it does deliver a beautiful lightweight veil that looks natural. Silicone based airbrush makeup is sweat and water resistant which is a popular feature. Airbrush foundations are also transfer resistant and great for evening out skin on the body as well as the face. With all of this knowledge you might ask how do I decide?
When it comes time to make a decison the answer will really come down to personal preference. Have a discussion with your artist about your skin and what your ideas are for your makeup look. Doing a consultation and having pictures of looks that you like will be very helpful in your artist guiding you in the decision making process. All the pictures in the post are from a bridal party at the Biltmore Estate here in Asheville, NC. It was a very warm day and some of the bridal party chose traditional makeup while others chose airbrush. Can you see the difference?
