Colourful Dewy Makeup To Admire

While we all love neutral tones when it comes to makeup, there's just something about a pop of colour that brings life to any look.

Dewy Looks With High Shine

When it comes to bridal makeup, using the right amount of highlighter is essential. You don't want to put too much that it blinds everyone, but not too little that it goes unnoticed. Similarly, the technique of using your highlighter has to be perfect. You must ensure your MUA choose a finely milled highlighter, otherwise, it may look chunky or streaky. Dewy makeup with a high shine factor is all about highlighter application on various stages of makeup, giving you a natural-looking glow from within. Plus, they pair easily with lighter shades of lipsticks like pink, nude, mauve, etc.

Bronzed & Blushed Dewy Makeup

MUAs all over the globe are all about incorporating blush and bronzer into their bridal makeup looks. They contour your cheekbones with tones of bronzer and contour creams while also working with blushes in various forms to give a gorgeous flush to the skin. And when the base of your makeup is dewy, these contoured and blushed areas of your face are amplified thanks to the glow.

Glimmering Eye Makeup With Dewy Base

While 2020 and 2019 were all about the cut-crease, 2021 and 2022 saw the comeback of shimmery eyeshadow. Many brides and their bridal makeup artists chose to layer up a dewy base with shimmery eyeshadows instead of glitter. It creates a more 'barely-there filter' on the skin while also adding some colour. Not only do these look super gorgeous but are relatively less messy to carry irrespective of the weather!
