Classic Bridal Makeup by James Molloy

Leave it to James Molloy to create the perfect classic bridal look!

He started with skin prep and applied a moisturizer before going in with Laura Mercier Pure Canvas Hydrating Primer (applied with his 0.20 My Flexi Face Brush) before adding a light application of tinted moisturizer to even out the complexion. To add dimension to the face, he applied Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Concealer and blended it out using My Domed Multi Brush 0.13. To set the face, he used a light layer of Kevyn Aucoin Loose Setting Powder using My Soft Powder Brush 0.27.

To give his model a barely there bridal flush, he applied a hint of Kevyn Aucoin Blush and lightly sculpted her face using Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder. For the eyes, he opted for a soft pinky nude palette using the Kevyn Aucoin The Contour Eyeshadow Palette in Medium Deep concentrating the deepest shades along the lower lash line and the crease to give soft dimension and added the lightest shimmery shades across the lids. He added Ardell Lashes for a soft romantic gaze and a thin coat of mascara to the lower lashes.

He finished the look with a soft nude lip liner and Buxom Full On Plumping Matte Lipstick in Chill Night and lightly applied a powder highlighter to the tops of the cheekbones.

James' PRO Tip: To apply a highly pigmented blush or highlighter, use the MYKITCO My Blush and Polisher Brush 0.24 to easily and evenly diffuse the pigments onto the skin.

Showstopping Bride with Alanna and Emily

Alanna Castro and Emily Winters are a dynamic duo combining their artistry in makeup and hair respectively to serve the Dallas, TX, area and beyond. Their style ranges from editorial to every day, and their goal is to make every client feel like the best version of themselves, no matter what they want to express through their beauty.

Alanna started by prepping the skin with several Sonia Roselli products including Water Elixir and Water Oil to seal in plenty of moisture - the key to any good bridal look. For added hydration and to mattify the t-zone, she used Embryolisse Lait Creme Sensitive and Hydra Mat Emulsion. To keep the under-eye area hydrated throughout the day, she added a thin layer of Saint Jane Beauty Bright Repair Eye Cream.

To give her bride the perfect lit from within look, she used Danessa Myricks Beauty Illuminating Veil in Serenity before creating a multidimensional base using numerous shades of Dose of Colors Meet Your Hue Foundation and Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer.

She set the complexion with By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra Palette and baked with RCMA No Color Powder before adding depth and dimension with Scott Barnes Sculpt & Contour palette. For the cheeks, she added a pop of color with Ben Nye Creme Blush Wheel and La Femme Powder Blush before highlighting with Danessa Myricks Beauty Enlight Illuminators in Light and Heaven Sent.

Next, she focused on creating a true bridal glam eye look using Viseart Neutral Mattes palette and added brilliant long-lasting sparkle with Danessa Myricks Beauty ColorFix in Twinkle and Lit Cosmetics Liquid Metals in Activated Gold. For the liner, Alanna used PRO MUA fav Inglot AMC Gel Liner in 77 and Make Up For Ever Aqua Resist Liner and popped on dramatic lashes from Lashes in a Box.

To complete the look, she created a soft pink pout with Make Up For Ever Artist Color Pencil in Limitless Brown and Universal Earth and filled in the lips with a blend of Danessa Myricks Beauty ColorFix in Nude 3 and Creme Brulee. She topped the lips with a light layer of Saint Jane Beauty Luxury Lip Oil in Cloud, a soft pink.

Finally, she gave her bride's decolletage a radiant glow with Melanie Mills Hollywood Gleam Face & Body Radiance in Disco Gold and set the entire look with Melanie Mills Hollywood Ultra Lite Long Lasting Sealing Spray.

For the Bridal Hair Style

Emily created Vianka's glam waves using a variety of products that helped keep the style in place for an all-day (and night) event! She prepped her tresses with Living Proof No Frizz Humidity Shield before setting her hair in rollers with R+Co Vicious Strong Hold Flexible Hair Spray.

Once she removed the rollers, she added some va-va-voom and volume with R+Co Balloon Dry Volume Spray. She added a light spritz to the roots and teased before setting the hair with more Vicious hair spray. Once she was happy with the look, she added a light sprtiz of another anti-humidity spray with R+Co Moon Landing Anti-Humidity Spray.

Natural and Minimalist Bride with Danessa Myricks

Danessa Myricks, professional makeup artist, photographer, and entrepreneur, created a bridal look that enhanced her model's natural features and perfected her complexion with beautiful nude shades.

To create her signature radiant complexion, Danessa prepped the model's skin with Danessa Myricks Beauty Yummy Skin Glow Serum in Main Squeeze. For complexion, she used several shades of Yummy Skin Blurring Balm Powder to highlight, contour, and even out the complexion. To create even more of a contrast, she used ColorFix Nude in shade 8 as a warmer bronzer/contour and to contour the nose.

To define the eyes, she applied ColorFix Nude shade 7 all over the lid using a MYKITCO brush. She then smudged ColorFix Nude in shade 9 along the lash line, outer V, and across the lower lash line to provide a subtly smokey effect.

For the lips, she used another shade of ColorFix Nude for a long-lasting liner and filled the lips with shade 4 for a natural nude lip. To make the lips look even bigger, she added a small dab of shade 3 to the upper and lower lip and blended well.
