One of the many questions that are asked by my brides during their bridal consultations is “How can all my bridesmaids have the same makeup look?” There is no right or wrong answer about makeup looks for bridesmaids. Many traditional brides prefer their bridesmaids to have a uniform look from head to toe with their dresses, hair, shoes and even makeup. Recently, more modern brides encourage their bridesmaids to select their own makeup look for the wedding day.
If you’re a bride that opts for all of the bridesmaids to be uniform with their makeup and your bridal party is of different ethnicities, this can be tricky. Consult with a professional in advance and this will save you a lot of stress and make for happy & glam bridesmaids. I find darker eye shadow colors like golds, browns, blues, purples and grey’s to be great on all skin tones. Of course you will have to tweak some of the colors a little as all these shades will compliment each of your bridesmaids from fair, medium and dark skin uniquely.
My bride, Domini, wanted her girls to all wear grey eye shadow on the day of the wedding, so I selected one of my favorite shade in grey: L’OREAL HIP Cream Eye Shadow Paint in Steely. What I love about the cream shadow paint is that it’s long wearing, creamy and bendable. It does not crease, even on oily eye lids, and it’s an eye shadow color that can be worn on all skin tones. I just lined the eyes with L’OREAL HIP cream black eyeliner and finished the lips with a nude lip color. Try the Cream Shadow Paints in different shades, either way you’ll be sure to have a stunning group of ladies that will help make your special day GLAMXURIOUS.
