When it comes to creating the perfect bridal make-up look, a natural style and longwearing products are key. Make Up by HD Brows Fluid Foundation is the ideal base for bridal make-up as it is suitable for all skin types and tones and can create any level of coverage, ranging from light and sheer, right through to full coverage. It has a beautiful, velvety smooth texture resulting in a flawless finish and doesn’t contain SPF, which makes it great for photographs. It’s also longwearing and water resistant so it barely requires touch-ups, meaning make-up stays perfect all day.
Make Up by HD Brows Eye & Brow Palette is another product with a long lasting, smudge resistant formula, so is perfect for the big day. It comes with a highlighter, two brow shades, a wet/dry carbon black definer and setting wax, so you can mix the colours to perfectly match any brow and then set them in place for a beautifully polished look. The shades can also double up as eyeshadow and eyeliner, so it’s a handy product to have in your kit.
The Make Up by HD Brows Eyeshadow Palette in Foxy is perfect for brides, as the five golden-bronze shades complement any skin tone. The colours are buildable, so you can achieve anything from a soft, natural eye to a more defined, smoky look. The eyeshadows are highly pigmented with a super smooth texture making them very easy to blend. Apply over the Make Up by HD Brows Eye Primer for a look that will stay in place well into the night.
I love the Make Up by HD Brows Bronzer to add a bit of colour and enhance a bride’s cheekbones. This instantly gives the face a healthy glow as well as enhancing the features.
The Make Up by HD Brows Powder Blush comes in three beautiful shades to complement all skin tones. The soft, smooth formula melts into the skin resulting in a very natural glow. Again, this product is very longwearing and highly pigmented so only a small amount of product is required for a look that lasts all day. My personal favourite shade for brides is Punch.
Make Up by HD Brows Lip Gloss is really hydrating, so lips feel moisturised all day. It has a non-sticky formula and comes in six different shades to suit everyone. My personal favourite for brides is Bare, a subtle nude hue.
I adore the Make Up by HD Brows Faux Lashes in Bombshell for brides. They are so soft and natural and just enhance the eye, giving that extra special look on a bride’s wedding day. They also look great in pictures.
