Daily Sabah (Turkey) - - Lifestyle -

FI­NALLY, it is that time of year again. The sun is shin­ing, birds are singing and flow­ers are smil­ing from the top of the trees. It is spring, the sea­son that every­one sud­denly feels hap­pier, freer and more ready to get mar­ried! So much so, that the wed­ding sea­son is an­other name for spring. It is the per­fect time to have a per­fect wed­ding for mul­ti­ple rea­sons. Yes, there is sun but there is no humidity to make you sick of your­self. There is the oc­ca­sional rain but noth­ing to bring the storms along with it­self. The grass turns green again and gets cov­ered with col­or­ful flow­ers, which cre­ates an ex­cuse to have an out­door cer­e­mony in­stead of be­ing stuck in­side. Last, but cer­tainly not least, since the weather is in per­fect con­di­tion, a spring bride has the chance to wear what­ever she wants as her wed­ding gown with­out any wor­ries of get­ting too cold or hot. All of these beau­ties, how­ever, need to be spiced up with suit­able makeup that has fresh spring vibes while also pay­ing at­ten­tion to em­pha­size the clas­si­cal bridal look that looks good on al­most any­one.

The num­ber one rule to have a typ­i­cal bridal makeup look is to bring out your in­no­cence while pre­serv­ing your fem­i­nin­ity at the same time. Thus, fresh looks with soft colors is an ideal for­mula that never goes wrong. Peachy-pinky colors are the safe route to reach that look. Do not for­get, you need to look as nat­u­ral and in­no­cent as pos­si­ble for a per­son who wears a lot of shiny makeup. Shiny is the per­fect word to de­scribe your look since glow­ing prod­ucts will be our top choice in do­ing bridal makeup. First of all, you need an il­lu­mi­nated face to im­i­tate that baby face look. In or­der to achieve it, use an il­lu­mi­nat­ing primer and foun­da­tion that is also full cov­er­age. The lat­ter is quite im­por­tant since there is no place for flaws on a wed­ding day, which is why cov­er­ing up your en­tire face is cru­cial for a flaw­less look. The same thing goes for your con­cealer as well, which, a bride should not hes­i­tate to go in with a heavy hand since the un­der eyes are the one tricky place to con­ceal that tired­ness, stress and com­plex­ity of all those years. Use the bak­ing tech­nique to en­able your look to last all day long, through­out the whole wed­ding. It is a tech­nique that one takes loose or pressed pow­der heav­ily on a brush or beauty sponge and ap­plies it to the ar­eas that the con­cealer was ap­plied ini­tially. If you have drier skin, you may use less prod­uct but if you have oily skin, use as much pow­der as you can, wait for five min­utes, and then wipe away the pow­der. You will now have a face that stays as is for hours.

Since your ul­ti­mate de­sire as a bride is to ex­tend the wear time of your makeup as much as pos­si­ble, use cream con­tour be­fore your power con­tour. This tech­nique will also help you to have more chis­eled face fea­tures. Then, set your en­tire face with pow­der again to make sure that ev­ery­thing is in place. For your cheeks, use a shim­mery peachy or pinky blush to keep that shine on your face while flash­ing your cheek­bones. How­ever, do not use it too much as you want to stay away from look­ing like Snow White. Re­mem­ber, you are not Snow White, you are only the bride. When it comes to high­light, how­ever, you can do what­ever you could not do with your blush. Do your best to have a high­lighted face that can be de­tected even from space. The last step for a bridal base is to use a shim­mery bronzer all around your face in­clud­ing on top of your nose to give color to your face. Be the bride who loves the sun­shine a lot and en­joys hav­ing a face that is col­ored by it.

The eyes are the place that we need to un­der­line the in­no­cence since they are the ones that al­ways re­veal the truth. Start with a peachy nude tran­si­tion shade and slowly build it up on your crease. Then, go with a darker and pinker color and put it a bit lower than your tran­si­tion shade. Blend it out care­fully with the tran­si­tion color while build­ing it up slowly. Then, use an even darker color for the outer cor­ner, a dark pink with a brown un­der­tone, which might be hard to find and that is why you can al­ways mix and match your eye­shad­ows and achieve your own de­sired shade. For your eye­lid, make a full-on cut crease by us­ing your con­cealer. Take your con­cealer from the in­ner realm of your eye to the outer cor­ner of your eye and create an empty can­vas. This will help your shim­mery eye­lid colors to show up more and create a more de­fined eye look. Now, take a peachy shim­mery cream eye­shadow and ap­ply it to the whole can­vas. This will act as an eye­shadow primer and help the longevity of the eye­shad­ows. Then, wet your brush and ap­ply a peachy shim­mery color again but this time in a pow­der form on top of that cream eye­shadow. Take a brighter, lighter shim­mery shade and ap­ply it to the very mid­dle of your eye­lid, as well as your in­ner cor­ners and brow bones. For the lower lash line, im­i­tate what you did on your crease by ap­ply­ing those pinky and peachy shades. Lastly, ap­ply a nude eye pen­cil to the in­ner part of your lower lash line to im­i­tate big­ger eyes with even more in­no­cence. For the lips, as long as you go with a pinky or peachy nude, you are fine. Now, it is guar­an­teed that there is no bride that fits the spring sea­son more than you!
