It’s wedding season and I’ve had a lot of questions recently about bridal makeup, so here’s some products I’d recommend (Asian bridal).
So every bride on their big day wants to feel flawless and fabulous and that is why I’m going to tell you some make up products that will keep you looking fresh all day long! On your wedding day, you want make up that will last the duration of the day/night, keep you looking glamorous without you having to worry that it has all came off. It’s always difficult when you’re trying to choose what make up look you want for that one special day of your life that you will always remember but what is even more difficult is trying to find the perfect products that fit the bill. It’s important that the cosmetics you choose are long lasting, long wearing and looks like it has just been applied all day long.
When we look at the typical Asian wedding makeup, it is very dramatic and it makes a statement. Here are some products that I think every bride needs on that one special day to make you feel like the perfect bride.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation is one of the best foundations in the cosmetic market. This foundation is very suitable and recommended for your big day as it is a medium/ buildable coverage, it lasts up to 15 hours, it has amazing staying power, doesn’t smudge, so you remain flawless all day long (so that is one less worry) and feels lightweight on your skin so you don’t feel too caked!
Other foundations I would recommend are: Illamasqua rich liquid foundation (amazing coverage, long lasting and feels light on the skin) and mac studio fix foundation (again really great coverage, lasts all day long and feels great on the skin) Illamasqua skin base foundation (light weight, full coverage) and also Nars sheer matte finish (adds a healthy natural glow to the skin and gives that perfect coverage all day long(.
Most Asian brides rely on liquid eyeliner to give that dramatic edge, which is why I am recommending Estee Lauder Double Wear Liquid Eyeliner Zero smudge. This eyeliner has the best staying power out of all the liquid eyeliners I have tried, with staying power of 15 hours. It is zero smudge and its super fine felt tip applicator makes it easy to give that defined line.
Other eyeliners I would recommend are: Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner as it is long wearing and comes in so many different shades to suit everyone, eyeko liquid eyeliner as it’s simple to use and of course, another fav of mine, Dior eyeliner pen!
Once again, you want a lipstick that keeps its colour, stays in place without the need to re-apply and that is why I am recommending mac pro long wearing lipcreme to you. It is a lightweight texture, beautifully and creamy on your lips, comes in so many different shades and lasts up to 12 hours, which is just what you need!
Other lipsticks I would recommend are: Maybelline super stay 24 colour, max factor lip stain, Rimmel lipsticks as they are really hydrating and Benefits benetint that stains the lip and keeps in the colour.
Whatever products you choose, just make sure that they have good staying power, lasts for more than 5 hours and can keep you looking fresh all day long, after all, you will be looking at the photos for the rest of your life!
Hope this helps answer all the questions in one!! Remember, these are just some products that I like, it doesn’t mean you 100% will, it’s your own personal opinion.
