Look Your Best

Two wedding day styles, plus beauty tips from a pro.

Romantic Daytime Wedding  

“Daytime weddings call for a natural, light look,” says Jillian Caro, professional hair and makeup artist. She likes to use a palette of neutral tones to accentuate a bride’s natural features. “Start with the eyes because eyeshadow falls, and you’ll need to clean up underneath as you go along.”

Begin by applying a medium-tone shadow along the inner crease of your primed eyelid and blending it with a darker tone along the outer crease to add definition to the eyes. Then, line the eyes lightly with either a black or brown pencil or liquid liner. To add volume and enhance the shape of your eyes, cut a set of false lashes in half and apply each half-lash just along the outer lash line.

Next is the foundation. Caro is a fan of the MAC cosmetics line because of its wide variety of cool and warm tones. For brides getting married in Florida’s warmer months, Caro suggests airbrushing foundation onto the face because it will hold up better against humidity, sweat and tears. For the finishing touch, define the lips with a dark rosy pencil and fill them with a softer shade of lipstick.

Glamorous Evening Wedding

A sunset wedding presents the opportunity to be more audacious with your look by choosing deeper, richer colors. “It’s all in the eyes and the lips,” says Caro. Envision a striking smoky eyeshadow paired with cat-eye or wing eyeliner and full luscious lashes. Caro recommends working the eyeshadow from the inner to the outer edge of the eye, moving from light to dark shades. Add drama by applying black liquid liner with an angled brush, starting with a thin line and ending in a thick swash following the angle of your eye’s outer ridge.

Apply heavier blush to help define your face’s bone structure in the low light of the evening. Start by smiling to find where your cheek bubbles, then brush the blush back along the cheekbones. Bold lip colors, such as radiant reds and vibrant purples, are a signature characteristic of a nighttime look, but proceed with caution. If you’ve chosen a bright eyeshadow color, keep the lips modest. If your lips are where you want your daring to show, then stick to dark browns and black for the eyes. For the best of both worlds, pair a bright lip color and a neutral eyeshadow and add a layer of metallic glitter to the eyes to create a dazzling look.
