Weddings are right around the Corner


June/July is the peak of the wedding season. So for the month of June we at BLK/OPL cosmetics will be giving tips that will help you be the best bride, bride’s maid or even wedding attendee that you can be!

I promise to keep it simple so that everyone can achieve a professional finish with minimal steps!

Today it is quite popular among modern brides to do an engagement or pre-wedding photo-shoot. The key with all bridal makeup looks is that you want to look classic! Ten to twenty years from now you want to look back at your photos and have no regrets about your makeup choices. To avoid regret, it is best to keep your makeup soft and simple. Many makeup experts suggest that you keep your colors in the neutral range since neutrals are a timeless palette.

Eyes you Desire

With eyes you want to achieve a romantic, doe-eyed finish. Grab you BLK/OPL color splurge eyeshadow duo in Idyllic Desire, blend the medium brown into the crease and smoke the taupe shade on the lids. Again go into the taupe eyeshadow and gently sweep on the lower lids. To give the look the innocent doe-eyed effect mascara is going to be your companion of choice. Mascara not only lengthens lashes but widens the eyes giving it a doll-like effect. With your BLK/OPL Boldalicious Lengths mascara put two to three coats on your upper lashes and another three coats on your lower lashes. Instantly your eyes are transformed!

Woo him

It goes without saying that your skin should appear perfect for your engagement photos. So I’m not going to preach the foundation message I’ve been preaching for weeks. You already know that BLK/OPL true color foundation sticks and even true color liquid foundations will give you a flawless finish! Instead I am going to add the element of blush to the mix. Blush adds not only a hint of romance to your look but it adds the flush of life and youthfulness back to your face. A wash of rose tinted blush across the cheeks, temples and even chin will give your photos a healthy radiant glow. For my look I used BLK/OPL’s baked blush in the color “Woo”

Kiss me under the moonlight

Soft pinks are perfect for engagement type shoots. They have just the right amount of color to make your lips look supple and seductive and not too much color that might just scare your fiancé away. For this look I combine BLK/OPL’s color stick lips in Baby Doll and Torrid to give a muted pink effect. The slight gloss of the color sticks gives the lips the appearance of being perfectly full and plump.

So this completes our engagement photos look! Remember keep it classic with BLK/OPL cosmetics and you won’t regret it!
