If you’re a bride walking down the aisle in a few months time and you’re not sure what bridal make up to apply for this time of year, think lighter tones and radiant skin. As a bridal make up artist in Manchester, every summer I research products that are on trend for the season. It’s important that you spend time thinking about your bridal make up whether you are booking a bridal make up artist or planning to create your own bridal make up on your wedding day.

Ten Top Tips For Stunning Summer Bridal Make Up

  1. Hydrate your lips with a lip balm in the skin care routine to give it plenty of time to soak into your lips
  2. Apply a radiance serum underneath your moisturiser for beautiful skin that will glow
  3. Use an oil free primer that that will correct your skin tone, smooth pores and keep your foundation long lasting, Nars ‘Light Optimizing’ (£25) is perfect for the job. Remember a different primer for your eye lids is also essential
  4. Check you have the correct shade of foundation, don’t go for one that is darker than your skin, unless you are planning on having a spray tan before your wedding day. Try Armani ‘Luminous Silk’ (£32) for beautiful even and natural coverage
  5. I prefer to use eyeshadows that have shimmer in them as they look creamy, I tend to stick to matt eyeshadows in winter. When I go to a bridal trial I wouldn’t be without Urban Decay ‘Ammo Palette’ (£23) Apply a lighter tone to the inner corner of the eye to enhance light and lashings of waterproof mascara
  6. Bronzer looks amazing on summer brides, for a naturally sunkissed look Chanel ‘Bronze Universal’ (£31) is a really good buy, the pot is huge so will last you at least 6 months
  7. Replace powder blusher for a cream blusher such as Daniel Sandler ‘Watercolour Creme Rouge Soft Pink’ £15.50, apply using your fingers to the apples of your cheeks and blend out using your thumb
  8. bridal make up artist manchesterUse an illminating powder unless you have especially oily skin this will enhance your dewy completion and look amazing in photographs, an example is Bare Escentials ‘Mineral Veil’ (£20) available with spf 20
  9. Eyebrows should be well groomed and gaps filled in naturally, a powder is the best product to create this effect with a brow brush, Benefit Brow Zing (£23.50)
  10. Finally i believe glossy lips look fabulous on summer brides I always dot a small amount in the centre of the mouth, this doesn’t dislodge all of the lipstick and creates a fuller pout
