Get Adventurous With Your Engagement Party Makeup

Throughout the duration of your wedding-planning period, you are likely going to be taking more pictures of you and your hubby-to-be than you ever thought imaginable. Using events such as your engagement party, bridal shower, and even your bachelorette party are great opportunities to test out potential wedding makeup looks to see which one you like the best in photographs.

Take Kate Moss for example. Rumor has it that she's planning a gypsy-themed engagement party to fiancé Jamie Hince. A costume party isn't exactly what I meant, but hey, why not. It just goes to show that not all brides go for a traditional princess look.

For a few theme-party suggestions, and ideas on how to create appropriate makeup looks,


  • Groovy Hippy Party : Take a natural approach to makeup by using a tinted moisturizer, a lip and cheek stain, some mascara, and a tiny hint of highlighter on your cheeks and to the tip if your nose.
  • Hawaiian Luau : Test out different self-tanners until you find just the right one. Then add a few lime green, pink, or brown shimmery shadows, a cream blush and a bright lip color to match the flower in your hair.
  • Old Hollywood: Go for dramatic red lips, pale skin, and false lashes. And don't forget your makeup must have: a stenciled faux beauty mark!
