It’s your wedding day but also a wonderful day for your mum and your partners mum too. Follow my suggestions below for a classic mother of the bride makeup that will turn heads!
Eyes: Don’t use a liquid liner or black eyeliner, as this can look way too harsh. Stick with a pencil to line the upper lash line and smudge in with a brush for a softer effect. Try www.maccosmetics.com.au pencil in ‘Stubborn Brown’. Follow with neutral colours for the lids. Line the inner rim with a flesh coloured liner from Bourjois like ‘taupe of the top’ from www.priceline.com to really open up the eyes. Apply individual lashes to enhance the eyes. I use and recommend Helen Dowsley lash via www.helendowsley.com.au
Cheeks: Use a cream blush first on the apples of the cheeks and layer a powder blush over the top for staying power. I love Stila cosmetics combined lip and cheek palette from www.mecca.com.au for cream blush.
Skin: Always use a primer first and then a moisturizing foundation like Bobbi Brown Skin Nourishing Glow Foundation available at www.mecca.com.au which is perfect for normal to dry skin. Avoid powder as it tends to settle in fine lines or just lightly sweep it over the T- Zone.
Finish with a setting spray like mac Fix+ to set makeup and give it staying power.
Lips: Use a lip pencil to line and fill the lips first. Try a longwearing lipstick and remember that darker colours can make the lips look thinner so stick with moreof the neutral tones. www.bobbibrown.com.au creamy lip colours work well and are packed with shea butter to moisturize.
