Wedding ceremonies require special eye make-up products like a good waterproof gel eye liner because tears of joy are to be expected.

 

I love using gel eye liner on our brides, it really enables me to create a variety of eye-opening effects—from thin, precise lines to thick, dramatic looks. A gel eye liner is an innovative alternative to traditional powder and liquid formulas, plus they usually glide on smoothly, dry quickly and won’t smudge.

PRO TIP

Apply with a liner brush for razor-sharp precision or smudge it with your fingers for more complete coverage. Remember to always close the airtight lid to keep the gel soft and pliable.

BRIDAL BEAUTY ON THE GO: Contouring and Highlighting

A beautiful bridal makeup application is all about using makeup to highlight and accentuate your features. This is especially important for photos, as the camera tends to pick up shadows and highlights better than the naked eye.

 

BRIDAL BEAUTY ON THE GO: Contouring and Highlighting

 

There are actual contouring and highlighting powders made just for this, but you can also use a bronzer or powder that is a few shades darker than your skin, and a foundation that is a few shades lighter for highlighting. For the most part, your t-zone and under eye area is where you want to highlight, and the outer portion of your face, underneath your cheekbones, and your neck is where you want to define with a darker color. Keep in mind, blending is key for a natural look!

Contact Bridal Makeovers by Aradia for a trial run to see how these techniques can transform you into the beautiful bride you have always dreamed of becoming!

Red Carpet Bridal Beauty Inspiration

The Grammys Awards 2015 ceremony on Sunday, Feb. 8th in Los Angeles was one of the most expectant events of the year. There were plenty of celebrities sporting spectacular evening gowns, flawless makeup and gorgeous hairstyle at the red carpet. Some of them were so stunning that one couldn’t tear oneself away from those red carpet beauties. I’ve picked out some of the best red carpet looks spotted at Grammy Awards 2015 that will inspire brides for their own red carpet event.  I enjoyed watching the fearless, show-stopping fashions, but these three ladies had the best glam from head to toe. As far as Red Carpet Bridal Beauty Inspiration goes, each one of these celebs got it right for the brides!

 

 Chrissy Teigen wore her blonde highlights in bombshell beachy waves.

Chrissy Teigen’s hair screams bombshell, a look that can be achieved by adding hair extensions for both length and volume. Hair extensions that are heat resistant are ideal. Mist hair with a heat protectant spray that also provides a shine boost. Take a two-inch curling iron and curl two-inch pieces of hair away from the face, stopping the curling iron at about the same height as your ear. Chrissy gave dimension to her blond locks by adding individual strands of gold hair. Finish off the look with a light-hold hairspray, to keep hair in place. All in all, she had had an entirely flawless look – perfect for bridal! She had her eyes lined with black liner and a beautiful chocolate eyeshadow that was subtle, yet dramatic.

 

What was the most popular accessory at the 2015 Grammys? Skin.

So, how does Gwen Stefani always have a flawless face? An easy trick is to apply a moisturizing serum, and let it absorb into the skin before applying makeup. A moisturized face will always be the best canvas for a perfect makeup look. Once the product has been fully absorbed, prime the face with a silicone-based makeup primer. Next, apply a liquid foundation in a shade that matches your skin tone. Use a brush to blend product into the skin, making sure to cover the jaw line and neck. Add a peachy blush to the apples of the cheeks. Take a shimmering bronzer and apply it to the hollows of the cheeks, sweeping it up to the temples. Set the face makeup with a translucent powder, to ensure that makeup stays put throughout your wedding event.

 

Loved her sexy, tight ponytail and gorgeous cat eye!

Ariana Grande looked like an absolutely flawless Greek goddess in her one-shouldered Atelier Versace with metallic silver accents.

I predict that her sleek, high ponytail will be a big trial run request for our upcoming brides. To accentuate her gorgeous look she wore a shimmery gold eye shadow, with the colors being gold and brown based and paired it with false lashes and a nude lip. The best part was her feline eye look that was created with a black liquid eyeliner that elongated her eyes, like a cat’s. It was one of the most dramatic looks of the evening, but the application looks gorgeous on her. This catlike look is as hot as a smoky eye but takes fewer steps and way less makeup — that means no meltdowns, perfect for your big day!

Bridal tip for fierce cat-eye wings:

Layering liquid liner pencil is the key to a stay-put look. The liquid dries and locks down the first layer of color. With a black liquid-liner pen, make four evenly spaced dashes over the pencil line, then connect them. To ensure a clean line, use a cotton swab with makeup remover, then concealer on the bottom edge of her freshly painted wing.

Vamp Up Your Valentine’s Day Makeup!

Valentine’s Day 2015 coincides with the highly anticipated opening of the film Fifty Shades of Grey. So, why not enhance your seductive power with your eye makeup? You’ll need to master the art of making your makeup last during and after every erotic scene. After all Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to do something a little more sensual with your makeup.

 

If your V-Day plans include getting all dolled up, sexy eyes are the way to go.

 

Bedroom Eyes

Typically when sex-proofing your makeup, you don’t want your eyes to run.  If the label says “waterproof,” “smudge proof,” or “sweat proof,” you’re going to want to invest. You’ll need to layer your eye makeup products for a bold, longest-lasting smoky eye. Start out by applying an eyeshadow base like Urban Decay Primer Potion all over the eyes. Next apply a matte eyeshadow closest to your skin tone all over the eye. After that, layer a shimmery eyeshadow color similar to the matte one just on the lid and on the brow bone. Then take your main smoky color and with a thick eyeshadow brush like MAC#217 and apply it in a V shape to the outer corners of the eye and in the crease.  Just like your wedding day mascara and eyeliner, you’ll want quality waterproof cosmetics like Make Up For Ever’s Aqua liners. They have real staying power and are available in bold colors. MAC gel liner in Blacktrack is a must and their Naked Pigment shadows are amazing! The ultimate must have to transform your look from soft and innocent to sultry this V-Day is Makeup Forever’s “Give In To Me.” It’s a collection of alluring shades inspired by the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. I recommend protecting your seductive smoky eye with a setting spray.

Happy 4th of July Brides! Top Tips For Freedom From Makeup Meltdowns

Happy 4th of July to My Dearest Brides! The heat can wreak havoc on your bridal makeup. So how can you stop from having a meltdown during your big day?

 

Red, white and blue makeup is fun to rock on the 4th of July!

Red, white and blue makeup is fun to rock on the 4th of July!

 

Top Tips for Freedom from Makeup Meltdowns

Keep in mind that heavy, oil-based cosmetics do not wear well in hot weather. Light, shear and waterproof makeup will stay in place longer.

So, always begin with a good skincare regimen. Giving yourself a mask once a week will promote healthy regenerating skin cells, smooth surface skin and a glow because you got rid of all the dead cells.

During the summer, your skin produces more moisture naturally. Heavy creams and thick lotions can make you feel like your skin is suffocating. An essential product for the blazing summer heat (especially recommended for those with oily skin) is an oil free mattifying moisturizer.

Always carry a spritzer to hydrate your skin during those summer months this helps your skin stay hydrated, look dewy and yes even set the makeup you have on. Misting your face with rose water also helps to set your makeup and keep it in place.

Wearing a good primer helps to create barrier between your skin and your makeup, thereby helping your makeup to stay put.

Translucent Powder helps control shine and help sets makeup making it a definite summer staple.

Consider using oil-blotting sheets as they help absorb excess moisture without smudging your makeup.

And finally, waterproof makeup, specifically eyeliner and mascara, helps prevent smudging.

Get The Look

Don’t be afraid to kick off the Fourth of July with a beauty look as bold as the fireworks in tonight’s sky. Apply a bold scarlet color on the lips, this color lipstick was designed for the Fourth of July!  The hot beauty trend this summer is to skip the black eyeliner. It’s just too harsh. Instead, try a deeper-hued shade of blue. Navy or indigo works great.

Keep in mind that blue eyeliner can make blue eyes pop! A navy blue works really well as a chic and modern alternative smokey eye.  The best part is that these hot hues are totally wearable, whether you’re a blonde, redhead, or brunette.
