A full face of bridal makeup just looks wrong when arriving at your beach wedding. Any products you put on should be light in color, contrast and sheer—you want to look like a sunnier version of yourself. No one in the bridal service understands that better than Nicole Maries for all of those interested with bridal makeup in CT, or even for that matter bridal makeup and hair in CT.
• Protect your skin. Before we apply any makeup, we would suggest to apply a light coat of sunscreen. Give it at least 10-15 minutes to soak in—it needs to dry for full effectiveness and so that anything you put on top won't smear or rub off easily. If we need to reapply we will use a powdered sunblock, such as Colorescience Sunforgettable SPF 30 Brush, which won't disturb your makeup.
• Bronze yourself. Any makeup you do wear should enhance your skin's natural color. Choose a bronzer in a shade that looks like a natural tan, and make sure it doesn't have any shimmer, which won't look right in the bright sun. Dust the bronzer on your eyelids, just above your cheekbones, and on the apples of your cheeks, plus a little on your forehead, temples, and chin. Follow with a tiny bit of pink powder blush on your cheeks.
• Avoid touch-ups. My general rule is that you apply makeup before you leave the house, and whatever fades, fades. The beach is not the place to reapply. If you get sweaty or your makeup feels clumpy, just dab your face with blotting paper.
