We don’t just do hair at Indie Sky and Co. Did you know we also do spray tans and make-up. Formal and bridal make-up are two of our favourite looks to create as we understand the importance of getting it right for your special day or night.
With so many looks to go for, we like to create something that best showcases you. Our professional team are here to analyse you first and then discuss the look you would like to achieve.
When it comes to weddings and formals, you want to be sure you’re picking a make-up look that makes your features shine (and that you won’t look back at photos and regret terribly). So, here are some of our favourite looks to consider:
Take a page out of Meghan Markle’s book and let your natural features shine through, freckles and all. After all, do you really want to remember your big day looking like somebody completely different? Stick to natural, dewy foundation, earthy tones on the eyes and cheeks and a nude lip. Classic, sophisticated and effortlessly beautiful.
Glossy lips are fun and youthful and a nice change from matte lips. Go for lighter shades of pink or peach paired with a heavier eye. The best part is that glosses won’t stain your lips and can easily be topped up during the day.
The classic bold lip is a great evening look that will never go out of fashion. Be careful not to go too heavy on the eyes if you’re going for a darker shade lip as it can be too much. Red is always classy, seductive and sexy.
Go the other way and complement a beautiful complexion with strong smoky eyes. Choose a delicate hue over the lids such as plum, rose or grey, paired with super long black lashes. This look goes best with a natural nude or pink lip to really draw the attention to your eyes.
Highlighting and Contouring
It’s all the rage at the moment and for good reason. It instantly boosts your glow and accentuates your best features. It is most typically done on the bridge of your nose, tops of cheekbones and inner corners of the eyes, making your face look sharper yet still natural. The best part is that it makes you appear more photogenic as additional structure pops on camera.
While it’s our duty that you leave the salon looking perfect, we are committed to making sure your look lasts all day and night. Follow these simple tips on how to touch up during the day so that your make-up lasts:
Always make sure your make-up artist primes your skin before foundation. Primer 'seals in' your moisturiser and provides a smooth, even surface for makeup. Apply to the entire face and eyelids.
For longevity, always seal your makeup with powder to help it stay put. Carry powder in your purse so that you can apply during the day and remove any excess oil.
Make sure your mascara is waterproof. Whether you think you will cry or not, think twice about false lashes as tears will lift them right off. Curl your own lashes with a volumising waterproof mascara instead.
Always carry a touch-up kit including blush, translucent powder, blotting wipes, tissues and a lip gloss that matches your lipstick.
Enjoy your big day!
