Bridal Makeup: Mother of the Groom

It's wedding season! I had the pleasure of doing some makeup for the mother of the groom on Saturday. She had the most gorgeous tan glowy skin. She doesn't wear a lot of makeup normally and didn't want to look over done, but wanted to look a little glitzy to compliment to her fabulous muted gold dress. My plan was to keep her skin looking dewy, define her brows and eyes, give her eyes a bit of nice metallic shimmer and give her lips a natural but lightly shimmery look.

Here she is. I think she looks beautiful!

A makeup problem with older skin is creasing. The skin needs coverage, but too much foundation and concealer can settle into the natural creases in the skin. The other issue is the use of powder. Too much powder can cause a dry caked look on older skin. Luckily for me, this client have beautiful skin that required minimal foundation. I did use under eye concealer that was lightly powdered to help minimize creasing.

For her eye shadow, I used a combination of peach, gold and and charcoal with a greenish tint on her eyelids. A matte taupe in her crease. A matte cream on the brow bone topped with a bit of luminizer.

Fiber lash extensions made her lashes look amazing.

 Brow powder in the color ash, helped to fill in her brows and define their shape.

Bronzer, coral blush and luminizer complimented her tan glowy cheeks.

A soft shimmery pink lipstick defined her lips with natural color.
