Wedding Trends Continued…Luminous Skin – Products available at the Make Up First ® Pro Shop

Luminous skin is in…but how luminous do you want to make your bride?  If you go overboard, your bride may look beautiful in person, but  will possibly look “greasy” in high definition.

How to create that luminous look, without going over the top?  

Here are some recommendations:  

For an instant “lifting and glowing” effect — Start with a primer; add a layer of sheer foundation or tinted moisturizer; add concealer under the eyes if needed, and finish with a highlighter blended over areas of the face where light would naturally hit, such as the cheekbones, down the nose, cupid’s bow of the mouth and the arches of the brows.

This application is perfect for the upcoming summer season.

Start with a primer

Final Touches

For the brides-add lots of lashes – individual lashes will look more natural – if rushed for time, use lash strip. We love the Ardell #122, #120 lashes, or the MODELROCK “Say I Do” Lash Pack . 

MODELROCK “Say I Do” Lash Pack

We also love the Callas latex-free eyelash glue for both its quick-drying and ease of application on the lashes. Available in Clear and Black.
