Top Makeup Artist Questions asked by Brides

What if I have mature skin? How should I wear my makeup?

Whether you are the bride, bridesmaid or mother of the bride or groom, if you have mature skin it is all about keeping your skin hydrated, looking smooth and not going overboard with the eyes!

Using a primer that helps to fill in fine lines will help reduce the look of wrinkles.  Make sure to not use anything that has a powder finish because this will just accentuate the lines.  Using a liquid foundation with a natural finish is the way to go.

When it comes to eye makeup, concentrate on the eye lid and put liner on the top eye lid, not the bottom.  This will give a lifting effect and look polished. Be careful about shimmer or sparkles.  Using matte eyeshadow will look flawless and really make your eyes look smooth.  Don't be afraid of wearing false eyelashes! This will give you that pop and wow factor!  Last but not least, filling in your eyebrows to make them look nice and full is key. This helps to frame your face and again will definitely give that lifting look!


For lips it is all about keeping them looking hydrated and glossy for a full pouty lip.  Using a lipstick like Best Day Ever by Veil Beauty Co. then finishing it off with a really nice gloss with no shimmer like Blissful will give you those luscious lips.  If you have fine lines around the lip area make sure to use a lipliner to stop any lipstick from bleeding.  Diane Lane is looking beautiful and elegant with that glossy lip, filled in eyebrows and flawless skin!

The Best Accessory to Have!

Looking for that perfect accessory with your outfit does not only have to be a piece of jewellery or a cute pair of heels. Think outside the box and try using a bold lip as an amazing accessory to your outfit!  You can totally glam it up by applying a bold red lip to really stand out. The nice thing is, a red lip can go with any outfit.  It can be worn to a meeting during the day or to a girls night out on the town!  Try using Veil Beauty Co. Aisle Red-y lipstick for that trendy and gorgeous look.  For those who are a little unsure of that bold red lip, a great option is a bright shade of pink. This will give you that bright, fashionable, fresh spring flare!  Celebrity crush Emma Stone is looking fabulous with her pink lip that looks like First Kiss as a pop of color for her accessory!

The Natural Makeup Look

The natural no-makeup makeup look is a hot trend right now.  It is all about looking polished, fresh and beautiful!  Here are some tips on how to achieve this look:

  • When looking for a foundation, make sure it's the perfect match to your skin tone. It should not be cakey or matte. Choose a satin or natural finish.  
  • Contour lightly with a powder matte bronzer and use a light pink(for fair skin) or gold(for darker skin) to highlight on top of the cheekbone. You can also apply this under the brow for a glow.
  • Use a brush and brow powder to fill in your eyebrows and brush them through so they look natural.
  • Finish with your favorite mascara and a light pink lip gloss like Veil Beauty Co. Yes! lipgloss.
