If you’re anything like me, the thought of picking out your wedding day makeup makes you both a little giddy and a bit nervous. Makeup is fun, yes, but how do you begin to narrow down all of the options out there and ensure your makeup complements your wedding day attire in the best way? Fortunately, Pronovias is here to help with magical tips from renowned makeup artist Pati Dubroff. Dubroff’s masterclass with Pronovias highlights three varied bridal makeup looks paired with gowns from the Atelier Pronovias 2016 Collection.
For Pati, the Classic bridal makeup look keeps warm peachy tones on the eyelids and cheeks, with a pop of an apricot lip to top everything off. Peachy golden tones are used for the eye shadow, but a black liner is used to define the eyes. Remember — your wedding day is going to be an emotional one, so be sure to use (or ask your makeup artist to use) waterproof mascara AND eyeliner on the day of your wedding. The last thing you’ll want to be worrying about is making sure your makeup is staying in place!
Ianira is a sleeveless satin A-line dress with full skirt, and a bateau neckline with a plunging round back.
Pati sums up the Cosmopolitan style as a nude eye with a rich berry lip and gentle contouring on the face. We think this look works wonderfully for fall and winter with the deep berry lip, but it’s guaranteed to shine all year-round! Pati also notes that this look should be paired with groomed brows and be topped off with lots of mascara, making the lashes pop against the nude eye look.
Vicenta is a sexy crepe mermaid shape with nude details and sheer illusion tulle bodice with lace appliqués and a crepe mermaid skirt with narrow belt.
The glam bride wants just a bit more “oomph” on her wedding day, so Pati recommends a dramatic eye look with metallic shadows and a sharp black eyeliner paired with lightly flushed cheeks and lips to keep the focus on the eyes. Of course, be sure to keep the eyebrows groomed so they pair nicely with the amped up eye look.
Vanila is a mermaid wedding dress in crepe with a bateau neckline, decorated with gemstone embroidery on the shoulders and a crystal-embroidered square back.
Of course, don’t feel like you have to fit into one specific group here — these are just guidelines to give you a head start on what look you might feel most comfortable in. In Pati’s wise words, “It’s about approaching the look as what’s going to make this woman look like the most incredible version of herself.” What more could you hope for on your wedding day?
