Our 4 Favorite Products for Creating a Glowing Bridal Makeup Look

One of the top requests we get from our brides is that they want to have a glowing complexion. And, as experts in Bridal Makeup, we know how to achieve that look while still delivering a makeup application that will last the entire day and evening. Here are our top 4 makeup products to create a glowing bridal look:

1) Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter

This product has so many uses - as a primer, highlighter, and mixing medium are my favorite ways to use it! What makes it special is that it provides a glowy sheen without being glittery, and it also provides a bit of coverage to smooth & even out the complexion, even before any foundation has been added.

One of my favorite ways to use the Hollywood Flawless Filter is for oily skin types who still want that radiant glow. I apply it directly to the skin after it has been prepped, and then layer a more matte foundation on top of it. The result is a "lit from within" look that softens the skin while retaining an oil-free finish.

2) MHD Cosmetics Hi-Def Foundation

Our foundation is truly one of our best-kept secrets! Best for dry to normal skin types and mature skin, our Hi-Def Formula gives a glowy finish that is unmatched, yet sets enough to give the skin a "bounce" and won't rub off easily. We always want our wedding makeup applications to last for long periods of time, so this is a one-stop-shop product that does just that, while also maintaining a freshness that is not easily achieved by other foundations we've tried.

3) MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Powder

Powder, even just a scant amount, is a must for long-wearing makeup. One of our favorites for setting the face while still giving soft-focus radiant glow, is MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Powder. It contains light-reflecting particles that, while the powder sets the makeup, still allows the skin to shine (but softly!). The perfect solution for a radiant makeup look that needs to last all day & evening.

4) Charlotte Tilbury Magic Serum Crystal Elixir

The key to long-lasting makeup that is glowy & fresh, is skin prep. My favorite product on the market right now for prepping bridal skin is Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Crystal Elixir Serum. This serum is great for everyone - oily to dry skin types - because it works great alone, but if you need more moisture you can add that on top of it as well. The serum also mixes beautifully with our MHD Cosmetics Hi-Def Foundation (mentioned above) as a thinner, as well as Tarte Shape Tape for a thinner concealer consistency.

Well, there you have it - our top 4 makeup products for long-wearing radiant bridal makeup. What did you think of our list? We'd love to hear from you!
