Bridal Beauty With Loverly

Lots of girls dream of their wedding day, and as a huge makeup lover, I already have ideas in mind for the makeup I would wear at my dream wedding! Loverly is a fantastic site for bridal beauty, decor, food, dresses etc. And they gave me the opportunity to create a makeup look inspired by a beautiful dress that fits my style.  



I chose this dress to base my look off of. Isn't it gorgeous?  I like to keep my makeup exciting, but I really like girly, elegant clothes. This dress really fits my style because of the floral detail in the lace, and the high neckline. The floral in the bottom of the dress also adds to that feminine look. And, the lace really gives this dress regal appearance. I decided to go with soft, romantic makeup with a few pops of color.To see other wedding dress styles, click HERE.


I kept the eyes very light, with soft purple hues. To achieve this look, use a light gold or champagne eyeshadow on the inner half of the eyelid, then blend light shades of purple onto the outer half, making sure to keep your strokes light and feathery. Then add a darker shade of purple to the crease, and use a light brown eyeshadow to take some of the harshness away. Smudge the purple underneath the lash line too to add more definition.To bring the brow bone forward, highlight it with a light cream shade. Finish of the look with black or dark brown eyeliner and mascara.




For the rest of my face, I used foundation and concealer to get a flawless look, and then I warmed up and added definition to my complexion using bronzing powder and an orangy blush. And for my eyebrows, I filled them in slightly using a deep brown eyeshadow and used brow gel to hold them in place. 

I used two different lipsticks because I think both go great with this look! If you want a bold look, go for a deep red or a berry color, and for something a little more natural, go for a nude lipstick.
