Always the bride’s maid, never the bride? No need to fear! The good news is that you can look just as fabulous as the bride. While bridal looks tend to stick to the classic/neutral zone, as a bride’s maid you can enjoy more versatility with your makeup. Most of all you can play with the fantastic array of colors that BLK/OPL has in its cosmetic line up.
For bride’s maids I recommend complimenting the color scheme of your dress or the wedding with your makeup. Of-course the eyes are the most obvious and fun way to do so. You can choose a monochromatic or complementary theme for your eye makeup. For my look I created a halo eye using BLK/OPL’s color splurge eyeshadow duo in Psychedelic craze and Racy maven. To create the halo effect I used the purple eyeshadows on the inner and outer third of my lids, leaving the center of the lid bare. I then used the color splurge eyeshadow in Racy Ice pink in the center portion the lid. The lightness of Racy Ice pink in contrast to the Psychedelic purple creates the desired halo effect. I finish the eye look by blending Racy Hot pink in my crease and Psychedelic purple on my lower lid. Walla! A soft romantic eye that still has enough color to draw the right kind of attention.
Glow from within
For skin you want a smooth, dewy finish that suits the romantic tone of a wedding day. I recommend that after you have done your foundation with any of the BLK/OPL true color foundation formulas, that you finish the look by lightly dusting the BLK/OPL baked bronzer in Sierra all over your face. This formula is subtle enough to give a hint of glow without being too shinny or over-powering.
These lips are patented
Lips are always complete the look! We want soft lips that look smooth and kissable. We definitely want to catch the attention of Mr. Right at the wedding. Creating these lips is so easy that even a 5 year old can do it. Simply use the Colorsplurge Patent lips in the shade Pink crush and smooth over your top and bottom lips. This formula is not sticky and delivers the right mix of pigment and shine. It lasts longer than regular glosses too!
So don’t be bombed about being a bride’s maid for the millionth time! With the right makeup you can slay alongside the bride! Remember to hold you head high and be the Glamour girl you are with BLK/OPL cosmetics!
