SOFT GLAM WEDDING MAKEUP GUIDE - SPRING / SUMMER EDITION..

Wondering what kind of makeup to have for your spring / summer wedding? From neutral elegant vibes to bold and colourful with your wedding themes it can be difficult to then decide what style of makeup you should have.


When I think of spring/ summer brides I think of glowing skin, bronze, pink hues, light to medium browns, peachy tones, champagne shimmers, fresh, soft but still glam makeup!


In the Spring / Summer months I commonly see blush, sage, baby blue, lilac or champagne dresses. It can also be difficult to know what style of makeup compliments the colour scheme of your bridesmaid dresses too! Neutral / the monochromatic makeup style is amazing for both brides and bridesmaids. Monochromatic makeup is where the same tonal palette and hues are used throughout the whole makeup.

To keep everyones makeup looking timeless it truly is best to keep the makeup on the neutral side rather than go bold or too dark - especially in the lighter, hotter summer months. Neutrals range from beige, browns, coppers, pink hues, bronze tones. This is very flattering on each skin tone and hair colour. This also means the makeup is guaranteed to compliment the bridesmaid dresses, hairstyles and of course your wedding dress / overall look. Happy bride + Happy bridesmaids = best day ever!


My signature style of makeup is soft glam. This style of makeup is typically very neutral / monochromatic, no harsh lines, blended contours and blush, neutral lips, half lashes, 3/4 lashes or individual lashes, softened lash lines or smokey liners. This style of makeup generally suits everyone and can be toned down or enhanced to suit each individual.
