How to Get A Bridal Makeup Look

Natural make-up provides the basis for perfect wedding makeup looks for brides and their maids, as it is timeless, universally flattering, and can be easily used. Although  some in the bridal party will opt to get their make-up done professionally, say “I do” to using skin-friendly organic and natural cosmetics and create your own look instead. Eluxe Exclusives has many of the natural products you’ll need to get these looks.

1. The Day Before: Start with Fresh Skin

Pamper your skin the day before the big day to exude natural radiance.  Make sure you don’t overindulge in sun, alcohol or junk food. To ensure you’re truly glowing for the big day, use a balancing mask the night before, like Odeia’s Triple Action Face Mask, perfect for all skin types.

A special day deserves a special cream, and we know of none better than Arbu’s Caviar Restore. Made using the finest Bulgarian caviar, its all-natural formula deeply enriches the skin with essential oils, guaranteeing a glow on the big day.

Make sure you get a good night’s sleep before the wedding–this is truly the key to looking fresh and beautiful! Tossing and turning from nerves? A quick spray of Supermood’s Beauty Sleep Sweet Pillow Scent on your linen could help lead to  a blissful rest, thanks to the lavender essential oil to help calm nerves.

2. Prime It Up!

Prime your skin for your make-up application.  Apply a good moisturising product to plump any fine lines. I like Lumous face serum by Mia Höytö, for firm toned skin allowing for better absorption of face cream.  For the body, All You Need is Me by True Organic of Sweden is a long-lasting moisturizing balm designed to sooth any last minute irritations or rashes that may have broken out thank to nerves. Perfect on cuticles and heels before a mani/pedi too. They also do a wonderful ‘undercover’ primer cream product called ‘Undercover Agent’ that smooths out any flaws in skin and preps your visage for the next makeup steps.

3. Get A Flawless Face

Create the perfect bridal canvas with a barely there neutral base. Using Nvey Eco makeup brushes (which are made from cruelty free brush hair, compostable handles made from corn resin, and recyclable aluminum ferrules)

Start with a powder foundation if your skin is a bit oily. I like Inika Mineral Powder Foundation is a 3-in-1 foundation, concealer and powder formulated with SPF15, which provides long-lasting coverage without clogging pores. Gently buff the foundation using circular motions to the entire face, to create an even-toned fresh-finish complexion. Remember to apply a thin veil of foundation to the eyelids and lips too.

Next, work on your flaws. For evening out your skin tone, use Luxsit’s Botanical BB Cream. Gently dab this rather magical concealer over redness, brown spots and blemishes and blend with a non-latex sponge by bouncing it over the area.

For an illuminating effect or to help disguise dark shadows, apply Tunkal concealer by UND Gretel, starting from the inner eye corner, and extending towards the upper cheek.  Blend to perfection for a soft-focus luminous effect.

4. The ‘Blushing’ Bride

A natural flush is the traditional look for the ‘blushing bride’, so why not start with an ethereal flush? One good mineral blusher is the aptly named a Mineral Blusher by Barefaced Beauty.  This subtle light peachy-pink hue flatters all.  Dip a blusher brush into the pot, tap off excess powder off of the brush until there is just a faint dusting on the tips of the bristles.  Starting from the apples of the cheek, gently glide the brush, extending slightly above the brow bone to deposit the pigment hue.  No blending required with this version as it offers a natural sheer finish.

Prefer a creamier product? Then opt for a cream blush using Timeless Coral Argan Infinity Lip and Cheek Creamy Oil by Josie Maran.  Apply a small dab to your middle fingers, work the product into your finger tips then gently tap it onto cheeks and blend for a smooth finish.

5. Hey, Bright Eyes!

Start with the perfect frame for your eyes: your brows. Make sure they are perfectly shaped and plucked, then grab a sharpened eyebrow pencil in the same shade of your brow, like Logona’s all natural brow shapers. Lightly feather in any missing fullness with tiny strokes, and gently blend in with a Q-Tip.

Now, curl your lashes using a goof-proof wide-grip Eyeko Lash Curler.  Eyeko’s tip: “using a mirror, position the curler close to the lash root, squeeze gently then release and carefully remove curler from eyes.” For extra drama, use their Eyelash Wardrobe faux eyelash extension kit and apply either a full set of thick, luscious lashes for full on sultriness, or just a few on the outer edges for a doe-eyed look. Once lashes are in place, make sure you apply mascara to not only the falsies, but to your own lashes too–this ensures your lashes fuse with the faux ones, and keeps the faux ones on longer.

Once lashes have been taken care of, blend neutral eye shadow hues to perfection to ensure your eyes are really in focus. Try satin eyeshadows by Lisa Noto, which also prevents wrinkles since they are packed with antioxidants.  Apply Deep Java (matte brown hue) lightly across the eyelids with a designated eye shadow brush, and deepen the hue in the crease to add depth.  Next, blend Buttercream (a matte beige hue) onto the centre of the eyelids to create a 3D effect.  Finish off by applying Eye Honey (a light gold hue with delicate shimmer) to the browbone, centre of the eyelids, and inner eye corner to add a star-lit twinkle to your eyes.

Prefer a doe-eyed effect? Apply two coats of Lisa Noto Mascara (available on our site!) in black to the upper eyelashes, then lashes once more to hold the curl.  For the evening reception, add fancy feline flicks applying Lavera Black Liquid Eyeliner. Done!

6. Luscious Lips

Whether it’s the groom, relatives or BFFs, there’ll be a lot of kissing on this day! So make sure you lipstick look is made to last. First, line your lips with a lip pencil to provide long-lasting invisible hold.  This soft rose-hued Pink Double Lip Pencil by Logona Naturkosmetik, is an ingenious double-ended liner one end for pink hues whilst the other compliments mauve lipstick hues.

Now, be pretty in pink by wearing a universally flattering pink shade, like Forever Pink by Lisa Noto.  This luxe rose hue in a cream finish has a divine natural scent from the added essential oils, for delicate soft lips and works with just about any skin hue. Got golden undertones to your skin? Tempt your true love with the aptly named Tempt by Vapour Organic, in this soft mauve hue.  The lipstick also doubles as a lip conditioner for long-lasting colour and nourished lips.

Prefer the wide-eyed, innocent bridal look? Go with a neutral gloss, like Lisa Noto’s Only You. Put a dab in the very centre of your bottom lip to create a pouty 3D illusion.

7. Marry-me Manicures

Accent your gorgeous ring with feminine-hued nails.  A base and top coat are a must to fortify chip-free nails, and then only two coats of a gorgeous 5-free nail enamel shade (containing no formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, toluene, formaldehyde resin, and camphor.) Our shade faves?

Mavala cream-finish nail enamels are fit for an eternal royal romance: we love Duchess Rose in a nude pink hue, or add a coral flush with Romantic. For a modern twist on a classic French manicure, apply this vegan-friendly sheer peach hue called 1993 by Lacc (la couleur couture).  This formula also contains a protective UV inhibitor – a sunscreen for your nails ladies! Perfect for that destination wedding at an exotic locale. Want to kick up the colour a notch? Try vegan-friendly Exurbe.  Apply What a Girl Wants in a vivid pink hue, and fulfill your “something blue” with Waterfalls, a turquoise hue on your toenails for a hidden surprise under your gorgeous gown!

Aggregate information (non-personally identifiable information)

Eluxe Exclusives may, from time to time, automatically collect aggregate information about our visitors to our advertisers, sponsors, promotional partners and affiliates. This aggregate information includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses connecting to our site, how many persons visited a particular page or activity, dates and times of image uploads, device characteristics, operating system, browser type, type of connection, page and image viewing statistics, and incoming and outgoing links.

Like most websites, we use log files to store this information. None of this automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you choose to give us personal data about you as described above, the technical information we collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you. Second, if we are required to disclose our server logs as a result of a subpoena or other legal process, some third party such as your internet provider could match our anonymous technical information with you, using information beyond what is found on our servers.

Eluxe Exclusives may use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or other anonymous tracking information to improve our server’s interaction with your computer, and we may partner with third party advertisers who may (themselves or through their partners) place or recognise a unique cookie on your browser. These cookies enable more customised ads, content, or services to be provided to you. To trigger these cookies, we may pass an encrypted or “hashed” (non-human readable) identifier corresponding to your email address to a Web advertising partner, who may place a cookie on your computer. No personally identifiable information is on, or is connected to, these cookies. Although our servers currently don’t respond to “do-not-track” requests (see below), you can block these cookies in other ways, for example by searching “[your browser] + disable cookies.”

Eluxe Exclusives will never share, sell, lease, or rent PII to unaffiliated third parties, except in the following circumstances:

a) If we have a good faith belief that we must disclose such information for legal reasons, such as to enforce our Terms of Service, protect or assert the rights, property interests, or personal safety of Eluxe (including its employees, directors, suppliers, distributors, service providers, users of the Website or others), or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We will disclose information only to the extent necessary to comply with the purpose of the request.

b) We may share aggregate, anonymous or summary information regarding our customers and their behaviors with partners, advertisers or other third parties. This data is not personal information and so will not identify you personally. We may share information with companies that provide support services to us, such as a printer, mailing house, fulfillment-company, credit card processor, email service provider or web host, amongst others. These parties may need personal information about you in order to perform their functions. However, these parties may not use any personal information we share with them about you for any other purpose other than in connection with performing supporting functions for us.

You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If and when we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail. Please note that notwithstanding the promotional preferences you indicate by unsubscribing or opting out in some other fashion, we may continue to send you administrative emails including, for example, periodic updates to our Privacy Policy.

In order to access a profile on Eluxe Exclusives’s shop, you must first create an account with a username and password. The registration system requires that a valid email address be used to confirm the account. You should choose a username that does not include your last name and does not specify your city or your address. Eluxe Exclusives asks that you use your first name only, or an alias, for your display name. This is to safeguard your privacy and protection. We do not use and cannot access this information.

Eluxe Exclusives is 100% opposed to unsolicited commercial email (“spam”). We do not have any desire to send unsolicited marketing emails to anyone without permission and we do not sell or provide user email addresses to any unauthorised third party in violation of this Policy. All of our newsletters and other general email marketing communications also include an “unsubscribe” opt-out link that you may use to tell us to stop sending you marketing emails.

In the event of a change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, Eluxe Exclusives reserves the right to transfer your personal information to the new party in control, or the party acquiring assets. We will only do so if the party we transfer the information to agrees that they will abide by our Privacy Policy for as long as they hold the information, and that they will not transfer the information to any other party who will not abide by our Privacy Policy.

We use third-party advertising companies to deliver online advertising. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Exclusives may include DoubleClick, Google and Taboola.

We may periodically modify, alter, or update these policies. We will alert users to any material changes to this policy by posting the revised information here. We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy on a regular basis to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of TGT’s website constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any future updates.
