Smokey eye? All-natural? Pink or red lips? What is the best makeup look for you as you walk down the aisle on your special day? Here, Melissa Morehouse of José Eber Salon in Millburn shares with us her expert advice and the best tips and trends for 2017:

 

MATCHY MATCHY IS IN!

 

  • Pink or “pinkish” tones mixed with golds and coppers on the eyelids create a “glossy” appearance for the eyes.

  • Glowing, happy skin. Skin should appear hydrated, youthful, and “pinkish.” Using the “strobing” technique during application highlights the cheek bones.

  • Blurred, faded lips. Darkening the center of the lips creates a sexy stained un-perfect yet perfect look.

 

LUSHLY DRAMATIC

  • Detailed brows. Thick yet manicured brows add a dramatic finish to any face. Look into “micro-blading” in the months leading up to the big day for a natural, long-lasting look.

  • “Bleeding” lip color. This technique achieves a strong matte lip finish to dramatize any “natural” makeup look. Lily Collins at the Golden Globes is a great example of this bleeding lip color technique.

  • Lush, full lashes are a MUST, as always.
