If you’re among those lucky ladies preparing for a trip down the aisle this wedding season, you’ve likely given painstaking thought to every detail. From your décor to your menu, from your dress to your hair, your big day is perfectly planned and prepared. But, what thought have you given to your face? Your product choices will make all the difference in how you feel that day – and how you look in pictures. The key, of course, is to be on-trend without being too
trendy. Choosing a look that’s modern and fresh, but not so of-the-moment it’s plainly passé by next season. If this sounds tricky, don’t worry! 2017’s bridal makeup palette revolves around pale pinks, nudes and monochromatic tones that compliment any complexion. The look is versatile, flattering and guaranteed to compliment any complexion. How you apply it depends solely on your preference and style.
The Boho Hipster Bride
If floral crowns and mason jars sound like your style, you’ll want to capitalize on this year’s bridal trend by embracing nudes and neutrals with a little extra sparkle. JAFRA’s Royal Jelly Radiance Foundation
makes a great base; enhancing your skin’s natural glow and providing SPF for outdoor weddings. From there, choose a barely there beige or pale pink eye shadow that offers just enough highlight to accentuate your eyes. JAFRA’s Beige Shimmer and Pink Pearl High Shine Powder Eyeshadows
are both solid choices with a blush from the same family, dependent on your skin tone. Top it off with long wear lip-gloss in this same family. Neverending Nude is always a good choice or Full Coverage Lipstick in Au Natural. With this look, you’ll have the monochromatic trend mastered in an ethereal earth goddess way.
The Sophisticate Bride
Is your wedding a formal event with a five-course meal served on fine china? Sounds like you’re a Sophisticate, in which case, your look should be perfectly polished. Think Audrey Hepburn, and it’s instantly apparent that this season’s pink palettes are the perfect place for you to start. Chic, subtle, pink-hued neutrals like those in JAFRA’s Powder Eyeshadow Trio in Nude
compliment any skin tone and go perfectly with full brows and a classic lip. JAFRA’s Royal Jelly Luxury Lipstick in Rose Nouveau
or Regal Red
both come to mind, giving you the freedom to play it down during the day with a lighter lip, then turn it up come the reception.
The Princess Bride
Do you picture a mane of wavy tresses and a train for days on your wedding dress? If so, then you’re a princess bride. Soft, shimmery and sun-kissed styles will help you radiate femininity; combining the dewy radiance of The Boho Bride with the regal air of The Sophisticate. A crème blush with a rosy tint, like JAFRA’s Cashmere Wine
, paired with just the right amount of highlighter to accentuate your bone structure without strobing, will help draw out your best features. Combine this with a similar shade around your eyes, Violet Radiance, for instance, and you’ll live up to your chic, metropolitan title. Finish the look off with JAFRA’s Full Coverage Lipstick in Soft Plum
and you’ll epitomize a beautiful, blushing bride to remember.
