Beach Bride | Bridal Beauty Tips

“A little goes a long way,” says Jessica Ayari of Ayari’s Brides. “Makeup should not conceal who you are. Rather, it should accentuate your features and make you feel both comfortable and beautiful.”

Sultry Glam

“The hint of a sweetheart neckline and the hourglass silhouette of the gown inspired a more glamorous look. For a dramatic, contoured, smokey eye, we used dark purple eye shadow by Brun in the creases and outer corners of her eyes. Nude color lips kept the focus on the eyes. To complete the glam look, we did a formal updo with a classic bouffant and a polished but textured bun, and topped it off with a gorgeous tiara.” (Gown: Oleg Cassini, CWG703)

Bridal Beauty Tips

Makeup Longevity ... “Airbrushed silicone makeup is known to be water resistant and lasts longer than other foundations and bronzers. It is perfect for summer and beach weddings.”

Bring Your Own Lipstick... “Purchase the same lipstick your makeup artist uses so you can have it for touch-ups throughout the ceremony and reception.”

Classic Bride, Modern Style

“The strapless ballgown dress for a beach wedding inspired our modern take on the classic bride. To accentuate the bride’s cheekbones, we used Temptu S/B White Shimmer Highlighter. We added a unique, bright touch to the look with a blue raspberry cream color on her lips. For the modern side-swept updo, we kept a tousled, undone texture of her hair with label.m UK Texturising Volume Spray.” (Gown: Oleg Cassini, CWG700)

“Since we were at a beach club, we used airbrushed makeup that would be water resistant and last the longest. We created a natural, simple look that brightened the bride’s face and eyes with a light shimmer gold eye shadow, a soft blush, and a neutral lip color. To complement the summer glow of the makeup and the lacy, romantic dress, we did messy, beachy waves with a flower crown for her hair.” (Gown: Oleg Cassini at David’s Bridal, CWG712)
