At the same place as jewelry and shoes, makeup is an essential accessory for D-Day. It has to match with your desire and taste. Nude and natural tint or bright colours, the choice can sometimes turn out to be difficult. We collected pieces of advice from a professional and offer you a source of wedding makeup inspiration right here.
How to pick your wedding makeup ?
Organizing your wedding is a great and beautiful adventure. As a wedding planner it is our joy to assist you to create the big day of your dreams. But it is mostly a succession of choices that you and only you should make to live a magical and special day that looks like YOU.
As for you dress or your wedding cake, your wedding makeup must, before anything else, be something you love. But inspirations are important too. They are a basis to help you have a precise look in mind. Inspirational visuals might provoke a favourite which will allow to identify trends that won’t match with your personality.
The first step is to define your everyday makeup. Even if during the wedding, you could opt for a stronger style of makeup, it isn’t advised to go for your opposite style. It is about finding the right balance between a special look that will highlight you and your everyday preferences. If your bright lipstick never leaves your side, you could go for a bright and strong colour for the big day.
If, on the contrary, you never put eye makeup, a smoky might be too much.
Looking for inspiration on wedding blogs or on Pinterest will allow you to define the perfect style for you. More than a choice of colours, it is about translating your mind into makeup. Furthermore, finding images to put on your words will be a precious help for your exchanges with your makeup artist.

Sometimes a colours you like might not be advised for your complexion. Your makeup artist’s role will then be to reassure you and submit an alternative which will highlight you even more.

How to choose my makeup style ?
I always try to amplify the beauty of each bride. Not only the face but their personality. We discuss the bride’s style, who she wants to become and then details such as colours, eyelashes…

How does the collaboration with couples who contact you go ?
Once I confirmed the reservation, the bride has to send me photos, her dressing, the wedding theme and few inspirational photos or references. Thanks to that, we exchange via email or video call. Then we try to find what’s best during our trial sessions !
What are the trends in terms of makeup ?
Une peau saine ainsi qu’un look naturel et doux. C’est ce qui est à la mode en ce moment. Il s’agit pour moi d’un look intemporel, qui correspond à mon style.
Your best memory of a wedding makeup ?
A bride who took 6 different pre wedding photos, in 6 different cities with different artists. Then she chose me to take care of her makeup during their beautiful wedding in Bali.
Wedding Makeup Inspiration
Natural colours and nude tones are in the spotlight right now. They allow to highlight a soft skin and bring freshness to your complexion. These delicate shades are blended with your natural complexion. They just bring the “glowy” touch that will make you the star of the day by keeping a 100% natural look.
It is also possible to go for a touch of originality. Without being too much, makeup can bring charm to your look. A smoky eye, an eyeliner, warm colours or even bright red lips will mark the minds.
Keep in mind that is it YOUR d-day. Take the time to find inspiration and exchange with your makeup artist to pick the perfect wedding look.
