Our friends at Saks Fifth Avenue, Bal Harbour revealed the biggest trends and tips for bridal make up the season! For 2010 makeup is all about the eyes! Brides are opting for bold eye shadows of purples, grays, metallic and jewel tones.  To pull off this look on  your wedding day, opt for a light bronzer on the rest of your face for a softer yet dramatic look,  that will definitely leave all eyes on you.  As for a bridal must have? The Dolce & Gabbana Quad in Fabulous, features all the must have colors of the season in an easy to carry compact.

With the summer wedding season in full swing, the big question for brides will be what foundation won’t clog their pores or melt away during their destination and outdoor ceremonies.   The makeup artists at Saks Fifth Avenue, Bal Harbour recommend Dior’s Skin AirFlash, which features a unique misting feature and mother-of-pearl, to get a glowing airbrushed effect. Another fabulous foundation is the Benefit Play Stick Foundation which provides flawless coverage in small packages for quick cover-ups between photo sessions.

As for outdoor weddings, don’t forget your SPF! With the Korres Ginger & Vitamin Foundation, brides won’t have to worry about sun-damaged skin, as Korres uses SPF in addition to a water-based formula that won’t clog pores. For the final touch, Korres’ vitamin infused formula  leaves skin refreshed and glowing. The most important thing to remember is to  make sure your bridal make-up adds to your confidence and comfort! Always accent your best features. If you are going for the bold-eye look, use lighter makeup on the lips and a soft, natural blush on your cheekbones.
