Achieving the Perfect Bridal Nude & Glowy Makeup Look

Your wedding day is one of the most memorable moments of your life, and looking radiant is every bride's dream. Our talented bridal makeup artist, Xenia, specialises in creating the perfect nude and glowy makeup look that enhances your natural beauty. In this guide, we'll walk you through the steps to achieve this stunning look, complete with product recommendations and application tips from Xenia herself.

Step 1: Flawless Foundation for Wedding Makeup

Product Recommendation: Mac Cosmetics - Face&body

Application Tip: Start with a well-prepped skin. Apply a hydrating primer to ensure a smooth base. Xenia recommends using a damp beauty sponge to blend the MAC Face & Body Foundation into your skin. This foundation is lightweight yet buildable, giving you that natural, flawless finish. For a more radiant look, mix a drop of liquid highlighter into your foundation before application.

Step 2: Conceal to Bridal Look Perfection

Product Recommendation: Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer

Application Tip: Use the Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer to cover any imperfections and brighten the under-eye area. Xenia suggests applying the concealer in a triangular shape under your eyes and blending it out with a small, damp makeup sponge. Set it with a light dusting of translucent powder to prevent creasing.

Step 3: Rosy Cheeks from Bridal Makeup Artist

Product Recommendation: Elf Cosmetics Blushes

Application Tip: A touch of blush can bring life to your face. Smile and apply ELF Cosmetics blush to the apples of your cheeks, blending it out towards your temples. Xenia's pro tip is to use a cream blush for a more natural, dewy finish, which is perfect for that bridal glow.

Step 4: Contour and Illuminate Your Wedding Look

Product Recommendation: Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate palette 2

Application Tip: Sculpt your face with the Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate palette. Use the darker shade to contour the hollows of your cheeks, jawline, and sides of your nose. The key is to blend well to avoid harsh lines. Then, apply the illuminator on the high points of your face – the tops of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and your cupid's bow – for a subtle, glowing highlight.

Step 5: Defined Eyes for Stunning Brides

Product Recommendations:

  • Estee Lauder Eye Pencil in Coffee

  • Tom Ford Golden Mink eyeshadow palette 

  • Chanel's Chocolate Brown eyeshadow

Application Tip: For softly defined eyes, start with the Estee Lauder Eye Pencil in Coffee to line your upper lash line. Smudge it slightly for a softer look. Then, use the Tom Ford Golden Mink eyeshadow palette, applying the lightest shade all over your lid and the medium shade on your crease for depth. Add a touch of Chanel's Chocolate Brown on the outer corners for added dimension. Finish with a coat of waterproof mascara to ensure your lashes stay perfect all day.

Step 6: Luscious Bridal Lips Makeup Recommendation

Product Recommendation: MAC Viva Glam 2 lipstick

Application Tip: Line your lips with a nude lip liner to define their shape. Apply MAC Viva Glam 2 lipstick, which offers a beautiful nude shade that complements the overall look. For a plumper effect, add a dab of clear gloss to the centre of your lips.

Step 7: Set the Bridal Look

Product Recommendation: Armani Luminous Silk Powder

Application Tip: To ensure your makeup stays put throughout your special day, lightly dust the Armani Luminous Silk Powder over your T-zone. Use a fluffy brush to avoid over-powdering, maintaining that dewy, glowing finish.

Pro Tips and Life Hacks for Nude Weddign Makeup

  1. Hydrate and Prime: Start your makeup routine with a hydrating primer to keep your skin moisturised and create a smooth canvas for your makeup.

  2. Layering is Key: Build your makeup in thin layers. This approach ensures longevity and prevents caking.

  3. Setting Spray: After completing your makeup, spritz a setting spray to lock everything in place and add an extra glow.

  4. Touch-Up Kit: Keep a small touch-up kit with essentials like blotting papers, lipstick, and powder to freshen up throughout the day.
