The wedding is done. The excitement is all fizzled down. You’ve tended to your skin carefully and its in perfect shape to keep looking radiant, even for the post-wedding parties. You are the new bride and all eyes are still on you, but now you don’t have the assistance of your hair and makeup artist to make you look as perfect as you looked on your wedding day. Whether it is a festive get- together with family or a night out with friends, we are here to help you out with post-wedding party looks that will give you the confidence to step out looking your best:
1. Bride with a natural tan:
Are you wondering how to get that stunning tanned look without actually having to sit under those wrinkle-inducing rays of the sun. The bronzer comes to your rescue — apply it on the forehead, nose, cheekbones, jaw and neck, and in that order. Now, highlight the tops of your cheekbones with just a hint of ivory cream shadow. Keep in mind that the key is to not go overboard with the products and keep it as natural as possible. On your eyelids, go for a copper shadow and then color the lips with a taupe liner and clear gloss. If you are fair skinned then try golden powders with subtle metallic flakes to create the tanned look.
Zuri recommends: Revlon Illuminance Crème Shadow in Skinlights; MAC Bronzing Powder in Golden2. The sparkling bride:
Ditch the typical, the rosy glow look — go bold, go daring and go sparkle. Perfect for a dinner occasion, give the neutral look a glamorous edge by keeping the focus on your eyes but adding a healthy dose of lustre to your look overall. Pick a sheer metallic accent that goes with your attire. We suggest you go for copper or gold. Smudge a coppery eye gloss from the lash line to the crease. creating an alluring look that’s enhanced by curled black lashes. Lather on that mascara — don’t compromise on the coats here. Give your cheekbones much needed definition with a golden highlighter. Finish it off with a nude lipstick.
3. The smokin’ hot bride:
You are a modern bride then why stay traditional and stick with black? Go for brown tones — the plus is it’ll make your eyes look smokier and more dramatic. If the event is right then bring on your metallic wonder — line the eyes with a bronze liner and make sure you smudge it out, but neatly so, along the lid. Add a slight ivory shimmer to the brow bone and a hint of champagne in the crease and you’ve got eyes that’ll turn every head in the gathering. To keep the lips impactful stick to a sheer lipstick.
4. The bride who wears no-makeup:
This is a day look perfect for a family get-together — you have a natural glow and a bit of peaches and pink that everyone will envy. Get your base right by applying a healthy does of primer evenly on the face. Take a bit of color-correcting concealer under your eyes and top it up with a concealer similar to your skin color. Lock this in with a compact powder. Time to add the colors — wear cotton-candy colored shadow on the lids with a brown eyeliner. Give a sunset-shade blush on the cheeks and coral touch to the lips. You’ve conquered the day!
