    Here is a BIG post with all my tips and tricks for you who are going to do your own bridal makeup! Everything from preparations to base make-up, lips and eyes.

    Here you go! :)

    do your own bridal makeup step by step

    This post is written based on my experience of what most customers want when they book bridal makeup at the salon. A make-up that is:

    Sustainable
    2. An opaque but natural base
    3. Earthy eye makeup that is marked and "more than everyday" but still invigorating and suitable for both day and evening. And that you still look like yourself.

    Then there are lots of details that I as a makeup artist should also think about before a bridal makeup, but more about that further down in the post!


    Preparations for her bridal makeup

    3 important things to keep in mind with skin care:

    The skin care routine is different from person to person, but there are some points that I recommend to everyone:

    1. Do not make a big change just before the wedding. It is easy to indulge in new, fine skin care and plan a fun night a few days before, but regardless of products and quality, so can the skin traces out a bit of just the change. If you are going to do this, start with the products a month before.

    2. Deep cleanses the skin before your bridal makeup - I usually steam my face over a saucepan of boiling water and then apply a clay face mask that pulls out impurities. Moisturize the skin thoroughly afterwards. A cleansed skin without impurities or small dry areas has more radiance and the make-up looks better and fits much better. I had done the deep cleansing the night before and then just washed with my usual cleansing in the morning before starting to put on make-up.

    Skip sunscreen (if you can avoid the sun so that you do not burn yourself) so if you have a day cream with spf, choose another one this day. Sun protection means that the light is reflected differently, so when people take pictures with flash, you can look a little greyish.

    Exact application can differ greatly depending on which products you use, what you want for results and what type of skin you have and any problem areas.

    My guide is suitable for all skin types and is adapted to products that are available for purchase in our store / web shop.

    Here are my top tips step by step!

    Face primer

    När vi pratar hållbarhet så är ansiktsprimer guld värt! Det handlar dels om att skapa en slätare arbetsyta att lägga makeupen på sen, som att slipa innan man målar. Dessutom väljer man en primer som är anpassad för just din hudtyp, så om du är torr så hålls din hud återfuktad och lysterfull längre och om du är oljig så hålls din hy matt längre och din bas kommer inte lösas upp och glida av.

    Work the primer firmly into the skin so that it enters all irregularities, it should not just lie as a layer on the surface.

    wash the skin

    Uniset® Oil-Absorbing Primer från Minolei får din brudmakeup att hålla riktigt länge! Du måste inte ha en oljig hy för att använda den då den är återfuktande och inte heller framhäver torrhet. Önskar man mindre glans (t.ex. om man blir svettig) så är den också jättebra!

    Long-lasting foundation

    Jag älskar Uniset® Lightweight Foundation från Minolei, den sjunker in fint i huden och blir väldigt naturlig, huden ser fortfarande ut som hud liksom. Den innehåller inte SPF (vilket är bra vid fotografering) och framför allt otroligt hållbar på huden tillsammans med primer och puder. Den passar alla hudtyper och är återfuktande.

    A perfect foundation for a bridal makeup!

    It can be applied with the fingers, it does not need to be worked in but sinks in by itself. I prefer the brush Conceal Perfector (syntetiskt hår) från Nanshy för den funkar på hela ansiktet och har precision kring ögonen och sådana småområden.

    Tip! Feel free to apply down to the neck as well, the neck is almost always lighter than the face and décolleté.

    Concealer

    You do not need to panic if you have any stress pimples (or as I always have acne and bumps) because if you have a good concealer, it is not a great art to conjure away.

    Pixi Pat Away Concealing Base is super opaque, becomes smooth on the skin, incredibly durable and fits both pimples and under the eyes! Because it is so opaque, you need very little product to get good coverage = more natural results, easier application and also more durable because thick layers of makeup do not sit as well as thin.

    cover dark rings bridal makeup

    Jag har nyansen 1. Cream i detta inlägg, den är lite ljusare än foundationen för jag tycker det är trevligt med en uppljusande effekt också!

    Det jag måste slå ett extra slag för är glo Skin Beauty Redness Relief Powder för alla oss som lätt blir röda. Jag använder den på utvalda områden (inte hela ansiktet). Jag är ganska röd runt näsan och sådant naturligt men lägg till nervös, generad, varm, och något glas bubbel på det. Vi snackar rödhet som lyser igenom betong haha.

    Red is such an intense color, so if you want a natural make-up, it is not possible to remove it through opaque products, it shines through! Redness Relief Powder neutralizes the red so incredibly effectively that it is almost magic. You will need it!

    Powder

    Pricken över i är att avsluta med Uniset® Oil-Absorbing Powder från Minolei. Ett settingpuder som blurrar huden och får sminket att hålla ännu längre tack vare att den kapslar in olja och svett. För hållbarhetens skull så rekommenderar jag alla att använda puder efter foundation och concealer när man ska gifta sig, även för personer som till vardags inte brukar använda puder. Sminket håller mycket bättre med puder :)

    powder brushes

    Shape, color & luster
    When you have removed all the bumps and powdered on, you can look a little flat. Then it's time for contouring, blush and luster! :)

    Contouring - The light and the dark shadow that shapes the face both come from the flexible palette Contouring Palette nyansen nr 2.

    Rouge - Are you going to take black and white photos? In such cases, do not put the blush too high on the cheekbones! Color becomes a gray shadow in a picture, and you do not want cheeks pressed in. In this post I have the blush glo Skin Beauty Blush in the shade Papaya which suits both warm, cold, light and medium dark skin tones.

    Glow - You almost want to bathe in a luminous highlighter at a wedding! How nice! Pixi Glow-Y-Powder are magical! Swipe on in the high parts of the face, or just on the cheekbones. Great on the tip of the nose, forehead, chin, collarbone, décolleté and shoulders too!

    After this I finish with the spray Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist som får alla produkter att smälta ihop och blir som ett skyddande lager för yttre påfrestningar (regn, svett, tårar) och förlänger hållbarheten.

    Eyebrows

    Not everyone fills in their eyebrows but I really recommend it for a bridal makeup, book a brow pick in advance if you need help with the shape. Shaped eyebrows are the cheapest facelift! Even if you have a nice shape naturally, there will be a big difference in the pictures if you emphasize the brows a little extra.

    Fill with a durable eyebrow product so that the eyebrows are just as nice from morning to evening. I use glo Skin Beauty Micro Brow Liner (i detta inlägg har jag nyansen Light brown) men det är lite smaksak vad man föredrar att använda.

    Well-shaped eyebrows do not have to mean dark eyebrows, there are many light colors to choose from!


    Lips on a bridal makeup

    Välj med fördel en nyans som inte är jätteolik din egen läppfärg, om du inte vill behöva bättra på din brudmakeup. För även om det är hållbart så kommer det försvinna litegrann när du äter och dricker och det kan vara skönt att inte få ”borde bättra på sitt läppstift-looken” under tiden man äter. Men en liknande färg försvinner på ett mer diskret sätt och du behöver inte bättra på hela tiden.

    Light pencil in the contours
    För personer som har ljus hudton så kan jag verkligen rekommendera pennan glo Skin Beauty Precision Eye Pencil in the light shade Peach and paint it around the lip contour and fade out in the skin tone. The lip contour is highlighted very nicely!

    Lipstick

    Keep in mind that you will probably kiss a lot! This is another reason to choose a more discreet lip color, but I usually also think about this when I decide on the choice of formula. A thick layer of lip gloss may not be so fun to kiss with.

    A common lipstick on our bridal makeup is glo Skin Beaut Lipstick which is creamy in a soft and "firm" way, so it is not dull but also not so creamy or glossy that it slides around on the lips. Super good really !!

    I have the shade Bella in the pictures here and it feels very nice in many, it is soft pink without being too bright, too light or too dark.

    Lip pencil

    In this post I put the lip pencil after the lipstick but just to show you what the Bella lipstick looks like alone before the lip pencil, otherwise I always put the lip pencil first.

    Lip pencil is a great complement to your lipstick! I like to choose a slightly darker color than the lipstick and tint them softly in each other (no sharp edges). The lip pencil holds up so well that when you improve on the lipstick, you do not need a mirror because you do not need to improve the sole at the edges.

    For the Bella shade, I use the organic lip pencil Benecos Natural Lipliner in the shade Brown. The shade is called Brown but it is not brown but more rust brown, like my lips but better.

    And then the whole base was ready! Brilliant!


    Eye makeup for bridal makeup

    There is no definite eye makeup that is a bridal makeup, you can of course use less makeup, colorful eye shadows or make a glittery smokey eye. There are no rules! :)

    This make-up is soft but also has quite a big contrast between the light and the dark, which opens up the gaze and becomes very nice in the picture, even black and white pictures!

    Always prime with eye primer before you start! I use Pixi Eye Bright Primer. It will be much easier to apply the shadows because they adhere better to the eyelid and also it is very important that your eye makeup lasts from morning to evening now.

    1. Dab dark brown eye shadow at the end of the eyelid and up into the crease line. I made a v-shape (not rounded at the edge but a little more elongated cat eye) which lifts the gaze a little extra.

    Are you unsure how high up you should put the shadow? Read my guide about it in this post.

    The shade is one of three colors from the trio palette Paese Matte Trio Eyeshadow shade 101.

    2. Fade the edges

    In the same trio palette there is a light eye shadow, dab it in the corner of the eye, on the inside of the eyelid and under the eyebrow.

    4. In the same trio palette there is also a light brown color that I dabble in the middle of the eyelid.

    5. Place the dark brown eye shadow under the eye as well. Wider at the outer edge (tie together with the shadow on the eyelid in the outer corner of the eye) and narrower inwards.

    6. Black eyeliner with wing, Kryolan HD Cream Liner (Ebony) a waterproof eyeliner that is easy to work with because you use a separate brush. Many people find it harder with a liquid eyeliner but this is a cream!

    You do not have to wear eyeliner with a wing if you do not want to or if you think it is too difficult. But some kind of eyeliner (maybe just a lashliner that I show in this guide) is recommended to highlight your eyes in all the pictures.

    7. Light eyeliner along the waterline, brightens the gaze and above all it reduces redness in the eyes if you are touched! This is the same pencil I have around the lip contour,  glo Skin Beauty Precision Eye Pencil (Peach).

    eye makeup step by step before wedding

    8. I dabbled in some bright glitter on the inside of the eyelids as well, SO nice! Hard to get the bling in the picture only. This is Pixi Liquid Fairy Lights in the shade Crystalline.

    Finish with waterproof mascara, Magnetic lash mascara. Before that, I bent up the lashes with pliers, then I do not need false eyelashes, I think my own are enough.

    Klaaaart! :)

    bridal makeup tips

    get married makeup tips


    Bring it in the make-up bag

    • Redness relief powder (if you have not applied enough, if you are not red when you put on make-up, it is difficult to know how much you need)
    • The lipstick
    • Light eyeliner in case you need to improve your eyes after a crying party. The eyeliner and mascara are still there, but the red eyes may need a touch up.

    I don't think more is needed than that! :)

    Är du jätteoljig i huden och vill matta ner i slutet av dagen så kan du ta med det vanliga pudret också.

    makeup tips for weddings

    Ready to get married! ♥

    I have never married and have no such thing at home, but of course I got the wedding feeling quite good anyway? :) My "bridal veil" is a cut-out curtain that I use to dress ventilation openings at home so that spiders do not crawl in there haha. And my "wedding dress" is a regular sweater with a lace in the back that I turned back and forth. It works well!

    Really hope you liked the post about bridal makeup / bridal makeup and that the tips were helpful! ♥
