Hey guys! It’s Britt with Modern Cottage. This week’s topic is makeup looks for your wedding. We had the chance to talk to Maya Bates with Maya Beauty Co. She shared with us her favorite wedding makeup looks. Here are Maya’s make up look recommendations for your wedding day:
“It is such an honor to make up the bride on her special day. In order to attain the brides desired look, we chat rather extensively about what kind of look she is going for. This includes the theme of the wedding, location, indoor/outdoor, time of day, colors, style of dresses, flowers, etc. This allows a good visual for me. I always offer my brides a makeup trial run that I like to do a few weeks before the ceremony. It is very helpful for the bride as well!
Let’s be honest, it can be scary having someone do your makeup for fear you’ll end up looking like a clown. I’m very picky when someone else does my makeup, so I completely understand. I encourage the bride to start a Pinterest board or such of makeup looks she wants. A number of times, a bride will desire a certain look, such as a smokey eye but then once they have it on, they realize this is not what the they want and may change to a more natural look. This is why a trial run is so important.
While I love a smokey eye or a bold lip, my favorite and most common bridal look is natural with a little bit more than normal. This means flawless, glowy skin, contour, and highlights in all the right places, and lots of attention to the eyes. Lashes are usually a common request. A complementary lip color finishes up the look. When makeup is done right, you see her beauty, not her makeup. “
