The Wedding Edit Hottest Makeup Trends for Bridesmaids

After a long, dreary summer, the winter months come calling with the warmth of festive spirit in their folds. Apart from back to back festivals, this time of the year also sets wedding bells ringing for many. Whether it’s your sister, friend or cousin tying the knot, as a bridesmaid you are bound to be excited. Of course, rocking a stunning look is a big part of that excitement. The bridesmaids must take care to not give the bride a run for her money. But they must shine in their own space. Now, that can be a tricky balance to strike. To help you achieve that, we bring you three hottest makeup trends that will resonate with bridesmaids of every kind:

Prep It Right
No matter what look you choose, prepping your face the right way is the key to achieving a flawless finish with your makeup. Start with a clean face and moisturise it well with your regular day cream, then apply a layer of primer like L’Oreal Paris Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer, follow it up by applying concealer on any dark spots, acne marks or blemishes and finish it up with a good coverage foundation like FACES Canada Ultime Pro Second Skin Foundation. You can now move on to the makeup.

Traditionally Warm
If you are going the traditional way with your bridesmaid ensemble, this warm and quintessentially traditional look will complement it perfectly. Work your cheeks with a nude yet effective bronzer like FACES Canada Ultime Pro Bronzing Powder Shade and use a deep brown, pink or peach lipstick, depending on the colour of your dress. For the eyes, bring in some intensity with fine strokes of kajal, eyeliner and mascara, and work your eyelids with a golden eye shadow and a smokey effect around the edges using a dual tone product like L’Oreal Paris Le Stylo Smoky Eyeshadow Mocha Coffee.
