You’ve said yes-to-the-dress, sampled the cake and booked the photographer, so now it’s time that we sit down and talk about you, m’dear!
Your wedding will be one of the most remembered and talked about days of your life. The photos will grace your memory, Facebook page and walls for years to come, so it’s no wonder that we put tremendous pressure on ourselves to look our best when we say “I do”. Unfortunately a lot of these practices come with a hefty list of toxic ingredients in tow. Professional manicures, loads of hairspray, spray tans and even your makeup products can come with harsh ingredients.
Most brides are concerned about performance and long-wear when it comes to their wedding day look. Rest assured, your wedding day makeup look can be glamorous, high-performing, and good-for you! Today we’re showing you our go-to look for green beauty brides!
We start this look with our Altruist Foundation Powder. For most brides, especially summer brides, powder foundation will offer a photo-ready finish that lasts all day. Our Altruist Foundation Powder is infused with freshwater pearl powder, which allows this creamy powder to warm up and melt into your skin offering a dewy, satin finish that helps absorb excess shine throughout the day. Your makeup will look hydrated and flawless, but never too dry or matte.
Next, we transform you into an iconic Blushing Bride with a simple swipe of our Nudist Multi-Use Cream Stick in Nude Rose. Simply swipe the stick onto the apples of your cheeks and blend upward for a wash of soft color that looks natural and timeless. The Nudist Multi-Use Cream Stick can also be used on lips and eyes! Try applying it to lips for a perfect wedding day pout!
We will finish our green beauty bride with two coats of our Expressionist Mascara in black. Most brides will find themselves reaching for a waterproof mascara, especially if they plan to shed a tear (or just full-out ugly cry, no judgement here!). But our advice is to instead rely on a healthy, nontoxic formula that is gentle on both eyes and lashes. Keep a tissue handy, and if you tear up or cry, gently press the tissue against your eye to absorb the tears before they turn into running streaks. Non-waterproof mascara can easily be reapplied, so that your lashes look fresh and full, versus waterproof mascara that will likely clump your lashes together or get spidery if reapplied.
To take the look from everyday to “the best day of your life” apply a highlighter. Not only will it add dimension and a lit-from-within, ethereal glow, but highlighter looks beautiful in photos! Simply apply a swipe of our Bio Brightener Stick to the apples of your cheeks and around your orbital bone.
Those four products are all you need to create a beautiful, natural look! Stop there, or finish with these additional suggestions to increase the glam:
- Swipe your lips with our Bio Extreme Lipgloss, which naturally plumps lips and fills in fine lines.
- Line your eyes with our Hypnotist Eye Pencil for a more defined eye, or smudge the line for a perfect little daytime smoky eye.
