It’s summer bridal season, and as always, we turn to celebrities for inspiration. The recent Royal Wedding, Reese Witherspoon’s, Miranda Lambert’s and Lily Aldrige’s recent nuptials, and the upcoming marriages of Kate Hudson, Kim Kardashian, and Molly Sims mean celebrity brides are exerting their influence on the rest of us. Here are some beautiful makeup trends that InStyle magazine thought perfect for summer weddings…
Soon-to-be mother for the second time, Jessica Alba wears the perfect bridal look with her delicately braided up-do and smoky mauve eye makeup, which you can reproduce with colorOn’s El, found in our Bestsellers Variety Kit and Smoky Classic Variety Kit. Lots of waterproof mascara and a bit of the same smoky mauve under the lower lashline, and once you set El with our Get Set! Setting powder, your eye makeup will last through the “I do’s” and all the way through the reception. Jessica accents her tawny complexion with a touch of bronzer and a mauve gloss, and looks ready to walk down the aisle herself.
Model Jessica Stam looks ethereal in her delicate peachy shadows accented with a touch of chocolate brown eyeliner at the outer edges of her eyes. You can get the same look with colorOn’s Dreamweaver from the Dreams Variety Kit. This instant eye shadow applicator, applied with a delicate touch, is a gradient taupe shading to sunset coral, with a swath of deepest chocolate brown at the lash-line. She keeps her eyes the focal point with a bare face and a “your lips only better” gloss.
Leighton Meester wears a more dramatic, evening wedding makeup, complimenting a statement red lip with silvery eye makeup confined to her eyelids, and false lashes at the outer corners. You can get the same silver with colorOn’s Platinum and Pearls from colorOn’s Metallics Variety Kit, adding additional silvery shine with our Smooth Arctic Silver Shimmer loose mineral powder at the inner corners of the eye and under the lash-line. Groomed brows, subtle glowing cheeks, an artfully messy up-do, and statement earrings, and you will look like a princess, too.
Recent bride and new mother Penelope Cruz makes the most of her hazel eyes and strong brows with subtle shimmery brown shadows. You can get the same look with colorOn’s Gypsy, from the Metallics Variety Kit. She keeps it simple with a nude blush and matte nude lips, a perfectly appropriate and beautiful bridal look.
You can find the looks above not only in the pre-packaged Variety Kits, but in the Custom Kits where you can mix and match to your heart’s content from the 78 different colorOn instant eye shadow applicators.
