Soft / Natural Makeup
Enhance your natural beauty
The most common makeup request that I get from my brides and clients is a “natural makeup look”, but what does that even mean? What is natural to you I can guarantee is different than what I think of when it comes to natural and to the makeup artist as well. Which is why inspiration photos are so important when it comes to being on the same page, but also the terms you use to describe what you like or don’t like. If you are trying to search through Instagram or Pinterest for inspiration, it can be overwhelming I know, so here is a quick crash course in what each version of “natural makeup” looks like. FINE ART MAKEUP LOOK What I like to call the “fine art” bridal makeup look is one that is a minimal makeup look. I usually recommend this style for brides and clients that almost never wear makeup day to day. The brides that want this look, want to feel exactly like themselves on their wedding day, but elevated enough that photos will look good too. If false lashes are used, they are very natural looking and just enough to open the eyes up for photos. It’s the lightest form of coverage and if you have freckles and want to show them off, this is the style for you. SOFT GLAM MAKEUP LOOK A soft glam look involves medium coverage when it comes to foundation (enough that it’s there and can hold up to high-definition lighting of photos), and often has some contour and highlight to bring definition to the face. Not so much that’s glam, but enough to accentuate your features in the best way. Eyeshadows shades/tones are neutrals of browns, light pinks, and golds to bring enough shimmer and open your eyes, but the focus isn’t on the eyes. The false lashes are more whispy in nature, so they still look natural. A soft glam look is finished with a neutral lip color. The same look can be accentuated even more with a bit more pop on the eyes. Adding a shimmer or light smokey eye to make the eyes pop even more. A bit of blush on the cheeks can also be added to the mix to bring a more rosy definition and healthy glow. NATURAL GLAM MAKEUP LOOK A natural glam look is full coverage foundation with a focus on highlight that is noticeable in person and in photos along with contour and then a touch of glam on the eyes or lip. This would involve eyeliner (black or brown) and a bold lip (either red or bright pink). Contact us about our kamaaina (resident) discount.
