It is no secret that every bride wants to look her absolute best on her wedding day. In the run up to your wedding, you may spend lots of time looking at catwalk bridal beauty trends. However, while there’s no harm in taking inspiration from them, it is important to take into consideration your own features and colourings and pick a bridal beauty look that will show you to your best advantage. This can be particularly important for Asian brides because, although representation in fashion is becoming more diverse, there’s no denying that the majority of models – and thus the beauty looks that are created for the catwalks – are Caucasian. It can therefore be quite difficult to find asian bridal make up tips and know the beauty products you should be using.
Asian bridal make up tips
Firstly, it is vital that you find the perfect shade of foundation for your bridal beauty look. In her book Makeup Manual world-renowned beauty expert Bobbi Brown writes, “I’ve experimented with countless foundations over the years and I’ve found that yellow-toned foundations always look the most natural – especially on Asian skin.” Brown’s own Intensive Skin Serum Foundation comes in 16 shades ranging from Alabaster to Warm Almond and has the added benefits of moisturising lychee and bamboo grass extract and protecting SPF 40. For a more affordable option Revlon’s ColourStay foundation is ideal for oily skin and has shades ranging from Ivory to Caramel.
Many makeup artists agree that the slightly more yellow tone of Asian skin can make it difficult to find a lip colour that really flatters. Instead pay attention to the eyes which, by virtue of this skin tone, can handle brighter, jewel tones with ease. I Heart Eyeshadow’s Makeup Geek palette offers great value with a huge 36 shades spanning soft neutrals to deep violets and forest greens. Take some time to experiment, layering up darker shades of powder, until you find the perfect colour and intensity for you.
In terms of finishing touches, Asian brides tend to be blessed with beautiful almond eyes so make the most of them with a good liner and mascara. If you’re feeling adventurous go for a highly pigmented pencil that matches your eyeshadow – Barry M’s Bold Waterproof comes in eight different shades – or opt for a classic black liquid liner such as Shu Uemura’s Calligraphy Pen that perfectly frames your eyes. Finish with a double helping of Lancome’s Hypnose Star mascara in Noir Midnight for a perfect wedding make-up look. I hope that you have found these asian bridal make up tips useful.
