A Bridal Shower Makeup Look That Takes the Cake

We are upon that other festive time of year, chock-full of weddings and celebrations around the big day. Your Summer months are likely full of engagement parties and weddings. While evening special-occasion makeup is one thing, bridal showers offer a great opportunity for soft and fresh makeup.

For these special afternoons, I prefer a natural and luminous look: flawless for photos but still feminine and light. Not to mention, this amped-up everyday look is perfect for a date night or brunch with girlfriends. And it is easy!

First, I like to prep clean skin with a sheer BB cream. The newest from Kiehl's offers great sun protection — a whopping 50 SPF — for outdoor venues. Use a damp Beautyblender Makeup Sponge Applicator to get even and light coverage. Make sure to blend to your neck and focus coverage on the center of your face.

I like to skip complicated eye shadow in favor of a single shade of cream eye shadow like MAC Paint Pots in Painterly. Curl eyelashes, making sure to bend and lift the curler while clamping lightly at the base. A swipe of liquid liner just along the roots of top lashes defines the eye. I like the Nars Eyeliner Stylo in Carpates. Finish with a coat of waterproof mascara; you never know if there will be a tearjerker moment at a shower. I'm loving Maybelline Volum' Express The Rocket Waterproof Mascara in Very Black for full and fluffy lashes.

Finish off the face with a swipe of bronzer below the cheekbones, along the temples, and below the jawbone. I also like to add a little swipe on each side of my nose to elongate. The new Buxom Hot Escapes Bronzer in Tahiti contains coconut oil and smells so beachy! The coconut oil acts as an emollient and adds a healthy radiance to skin.

Add a touch of highlighter on the brow bone and cheekbone. Mark That's Brilliant Face & Eye Luminizer has a brilliant brush applicator and blends for a natural luminosity. Just a simple plumping lip gloss will keep the pout hydrated and smooth. The new Korres Greek Yoghurt Nourishing Lip Cooler has a cooling sensation that's perfect for hot days and it even buffs away dry skin.

Voilà! You look natural, fresh, and pretty — all set for a day of celebration for the bride-to-be.
