Update your bridal makeup from ceremony to party
Ding-dong. The wedding bells have chimed and it’s time to get dancing on the tables. Well, tearing up the dancefloor at least. With vows said and tears already shed, later in the evening is the perfect time to let loose and enjoy the party. If you can, take a moment to slip away for a refreshing few minutes of calm. This is a good time for a member of your bridal party to pin up your train or whip off your veil, if you’ve opted for them. It’s an instant party update. Take a few minutes also to freshen up your makeup or, with the help of a few sophisticated tweaks, create a completely new party look.
Eyes often need a little attention, particularly if you’re of a sentimental, teary nature. Use a cotton bud dipped in eye makeup remover to gingerly clean up any smudges. If you feel like it, move your makeup look from day to evening with a thicker slick of eyeliner – we love Grandiose Liner for its easy to apply bend-able brush. For even more drama, create a smoky eye by subtly blending Waterproof Khôl Hypnose around the base of upper and lower eyelashes. Just the ticket if you plan on dancing ‘til dawn.
Dab a little concealer – we love Effacernes Longue Tenue – to help mask any blemishes that may have cropped up during the day. Carefully apply a smidge of powder – consider draping a towel over your outfit in case of any spillage – to set your refreshed look.
For added va-va-voom consider a bold lip. If you’ve opted for an understated daytime look, this signals to your guests that it’s time to get the party started. We love L’Absolu Rouge, which comes in matte, cream and sheer shades.
