5 Tips for Perfect Mother of the Bride Makeup

Your daughter’s special day is on the horizon and you’re looking for makeup ideas to look and feel glamorous. So, what are some things to consider? When it comes to weddings as the mother of the bride, you’ll want your makeup to last well into the night and photograph perfectly. Luckily, there are so many options out there to achieve these goals with the addition of simple products. However, over time, your skin will change, and what worked for you in the past might not work for you now. So, we’ve compiled the age-defying makeup techniques from our professional makeup artists to help you achieve a flawless finish. Here are our favourite tried and tested tips for mother of the bride makeup.

Prime And Prep In Advance

Just as we advise our brides, the first thing to do is prep and prime your skin for a beautiful, hydrated canvas to work with on the day. This involves a strict skincare regimen in the weeks leading up to the big day, and making sure we’re not introducing anything new that might upset our skin. On the morning of, your makeup artist will suggest you use super hydrating products so that your skin is supple for makeup application.

Restore Youth With Warm-Tones and Liquid Products

With the right foundation, it’s easy to achieve a naturally beautiful look that hides any imperfections. To achieve this, we strongly recommend using a light to medium coverage liquid foundation in a slightly warmer tone than your skin. This will simply melt into the skin and blur any texture or fine lines instead of settling into them. Additionally, warmer tones help you achieve a fresh look. Add a bright, rosy blush along the tops of the cheekbones and ensure that you’re using products without flashback so you’re photo-ready. 

Neutral Matte Shades Are Your Best Friend

A neutral look is always universally flattering, with a light eyeshadow shade over the lid and a deeper neutral-tone brown in the outer corners. If you wish to add a bit of sparkle, experiment with some shimmer shadow over the lid. As for eyeliner, we recommend a cool-tone dark brown or charcoal pencil that is blended using your outer corner eyeshadow to soften the effect. This subtle contrast will draw attention to your eyes while hiding sagging and wrinkles that may be present on the lid. To really open up the eyes, apply individual lashes and your favourite waterproof mascara.
