Best of Edith & June: Bridal Beauty
We're well into wedding season, and vetting the perfect makeup for your wedding day is just another tedious task on your "to-do" list. Luckily, we've narrowed down the huge amount of clean products on the market to the best for a natural, long lasting bridal look.
Base: Vapour Atmosphere Luminous Foundation & French Girl Organics Priming Serum
These two products work hand in hand to create a flawless, yet lightweight base that can be built up for your desired amount of coverage. After your skincare routine, apply the French Girl Organics priming serum to the face for a smooth, hydrating base that won't cake up makeup, and will balance out any texture on the skin. For those ladies who need light coverage, use a beauty sponge or stippling brush to apply some of the Vapour foundations on areas of redness or spots. Blend in well for a skin-like finish. On areas where you need extra coverage, apply like a stick concealer and blend out with fingers.
Face: Tata Harper Highlighter, Lilah B. Bronzer and Kjaer Weis Cream Blush
These three products combines will leave you with an ethereal glow that lasts all day long. First, apply the lilah b. bronzer in b.sunkissed to the contours of the face, blending up onto the cheeks as well for a glowy finish. While this bronzer has a bit of shimmer, it's not at all glittery, and will leave you with an overall glow without being orange.
Next, apply the Tata Harper Very Highlighting cream pot to the high points of the face, and the inner corners of the eyes. This is a universally flattering shade with a glistening glow that melts into the skin. This product is also great because it can be easily reapplied and layered with your fingers for an extra pop.
For a touch of color, we love the Kjaer Weis cream blushes- they come in so many diverse shades that will match any bouquet, and the creamy formula glides onto skin without looking oily, and will last all night to give you a gorgeous flush. we recommend the shade Reverence for light skinned girls, and blossoming for medium-dark skin tones.
Eyes: Rituel De Fille Ash and Ember Eye Soot, Hynt Beauty Eye Pencil & Ilia Limitless Lash Mascara
For the prefect, non-creasing, non fading eyeshadow we love the Rituel De Fille Eye Soots. These gorgeous pigments have an almost 5 star user review rating on Detox Market, and for good reason- the colors are beautifully unique and leave the eyes with the most stunning wash of color. We recommend Half-Light for a browny-purple shimmer on the eyes, or Sigil for a pearlescent glow.
For definition, we love the long lasting power of the Hynt Beauty Eye Pencil, especially in dark brown for a non-red hue. Ad volume and length to your lashes with the Ilia Limitless Lash Mascara on top and bottom, and then smudge a bit more of the eye pencil on the lower lashline.
Lips: Kosas Weightless Lip Color
Whether you're looking for a bold red, dark plum, or a just-bitten pinky-nude, Kosas Lipsticks have your back. The formula is a gorgeous, satin finish that can be applied with or without a mirror (perfect for after dinner touch ups) and leaves lips feeling good, not dry or crunchy. For a bold lip, we recommend Violet Fury ( a limited edition summer shade) especially for our darker skinned ladies, it's a gorgeous pink-purple shade that looks just right, not too electric.
