Shutterstock_2113327 Your wedding day is the most important event of your life, so your makeup has to be flawless. However, don’t get carried away with heavy, unnatural-looking cosmetics that will detract from your face. Rather, you should try to accentuate your natural beauty using soft neutral tones in your cheeks and face, with moist lips and lightly dusted eyes that bring out their inherent colors.

Pür Mineral’s 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Foundation is the perfect starting point for achieving a smooth, flawless complexion. First, wash and moisturize your face, and then apply a light primer, like Pür’s Colour Correcting Primers in Peach or Green, to conceal imperfections and neutralize discolorations. Then, choosing a shade that closely matches your own skin tone, lightly dust the foundation across your face to create a soft, even mask.

You can then use Pressed Mineral Eye Shadow to dust a hint of color across your eyes to enhance the contrast and beauty of those soulful orbs. While the exact shade you use should match your eyes, complexion and dress, we recommend considering Gold Dust, White Opal or Chocolate Topaz for a sparkling, festive look (all available in the Traditional Wedding Kit).

For fabulous lips, try pairing the Moonlit Pearl Mineral Shea Butter Lipstick as an outer coating with just a hint of Pout Plumping Lip Gloss in Rose Opal along the middle of the bottom lip, to create a glistening kiss that’s full and luscious.

And of course no bride’s makeup would be complete without an application of Pür Mineral’s Triple Impact Mascara, which can help to thicken, lengthen and curl the lashes all in one.
