How To Do Your Own Bridal Makeup
Don't want to spend big bucks on getting your makeup professionally done? Hey, if Kate Middleton can do hers, so can you. Try these tips...
For shadow, pick a neutral palette, preferably one with browns, bronzes or golds. (If you have a medium skin tone, you can go more earthy, like a terra cotta.) Highlight your brow bone with slightly shimmery neutral color such as CoverGirl Intense ShadowBlast in Beige Blaze, $8, but avoid too much shimmer or glitter as it can make fine lines more obvious and show up too bright in photos. Blend well!
Finally, curl your lashes and apply CoverGirl NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara, $10 (it won't run off if you cry). If you're using false lashes, give yourself plenty of time to apply them and look down into a hand mirror on a table when you do so (this can help you position them accurately). When the lash glue is dry, carefully go back over the roots of your falsies with liner and apply a coat of mascara to them.
