In a Winter Wonderland, December and January destination brides always have to think of how to illuminate their skin on their wedding day. For my winter brides, I like to use Smashbox Photo Finish Luminizing Foundation Primer on the skin. It evens out the skin and gives my bride that beautiful luminous glow. In addition, it creates a smooth and perfect canvas. I like using a makeup brush as I apply this silky primer for an even distribution for foundation application.
To play up skin that still has a nice bronze, the Smashbox Photo Finish Bronzing Primer will enhance bronzed skin. Just like the foundation primer, the bronzing primer also has a silky blend of vitamins and antioxidants. The silicone emulsion will fill in fine lines as well as smooth out pores, skin texture and add a delicate bronze hue to the face. It’s a great product to use alone or with foundation, concealer or powder for a flawless finish.
As it snows on your wedding day, be sure that as you walk down the aisle you will be the only one glowing…let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

The heavy black half moon liner that was a hit at the Valentino s/s show, has now made it’s way down the aisle for brides. The look created gives an appearance of dark eye shadow, but this high impact liner is being created with using a cream eye liner or kohl pencil. This makeup look is definitely not traditional bridal makeup, but nowadays what bride is. The main attraction on this bride will be the seductive eyes
To get this dramatic bold eye, start out with applying a primer on the lid to keep the eyeliner in place. Apply the cream liner on the entire lid stopping just above the crease of the eye. I used my favorite L’OREAL HIP cream truth eyeliner in black. I like to apply it with a flat stiff brush then going back over it using my fingers to soften the look. Once it is well blended, I go back and line the eyes with a slanted eyeliner brush to give the eye a shape. Here you can do a round shape or the popular winged shape.
To give a more Barbella look add your favorite volume mascara (L’OREAL Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black) and a full set of lashes. On the lips, I prefer going with a very sheer lip color in pink or peach (Josie Maran lip gloss in Confession). I decided to opt for using a lip pencil because I wanted to keep the lips soft.
How glamxurious of a bride you are!
