gorgeous summer 2017 wedding make up

Summer is now upon us, so what better way to start the season than with some beautiful bridal make-up inspiration. Today’s post is packed full of ideas, tips and tricks on how to achieve a bridal look that’s on-trend, flawless and totally fabulous. Are you ready? Let’s dive in!

If you want to create the perfect base for applying your Summer bridal make-up, you need to establish a strict beauty regime ahead of the big day. We recommend starting this at least three months before your wedding, but the sooner the better! Find out the skincare products that suit your skin, use them religiously and you’ll be seriously grateful when applying your bridal make-up. When it comes to preparing for your special day, we also recommend getting as much beauty sleep as you can! It’s called beauty sleep for a reason, and you’ll feel so much better for it when the day finally arrives. It’s also vital that you drink enough water – your skin will thank you, and so will your make-up artist.

It goes without saying, Summer is the hottest time of the year so you’ll want a lighter base than you’d usually wear. Opt for light-weight, mousse foundations over a heavier, thicker foundation. While it may provide more coverage, it doesn’t bode well with the warmer weather and chances are it’ll eventually slide off. We also recommend opting for a foundation or tinted moisturiser that has an in-built SPF. There would be nothing worse than waking up with sunburn the day after becoming a newlywed! Fix your make-up into place with a setting spray, it will mean you don’t have to worry about your make-up for the rest of the day and it’ll even help to give your skin a dewy glow.

When it comes to bridal make-up trends for 2017, we are seeing gorgeous pink colour palettes everywhere. Modern brides are coordinating delicate pink eyeshadow with the prettiest of pink lips – the result is feminine, romantic and the perfect match for a Summer soirée. For fashion-forward brides who want to make a statement, you’ll be pleased to know that rich berry lips bursting with colour are still very much on-trend for the upcoming season. Keep the rest of your make-up understated and let your lips do all the talking…  Why not match your lipstick colour to your manicure for a look that is polished, coordinated and seriously swoon-worthy!

Whether you’re applying your own make-up on your big day, or getting a professional make-up artist in, we cannot stress how important it is to have at least one trial ahead of the day! You want to know what to expect, and the morning of your wedding day is not the time or place for a bridal beauty disaster! Most importantly, make sure you feel completely comfortable, confident and ready to wow your hubby-to-be…
