Many brides like to wear a different wedding dress to the ceremony and reception, but a much more affordable option for changing up your look is to switch up your makeup. Taking your look from day to night is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
- Swap your lipstick. We’ve all heard the phrase “your lips but better,” and that’s exactly the type of shade that’s perfect for a daytime ceremony. Keep your reception lipstick natural with a midtone, warm rose or a pink mauve for a subtle change, or really give them something to talk about with a rich wine hue or deep, cool red.
- Add darker colors to your eyes. To amp up your eye makeup, add an espresso brown or charcoal grey to the outer corners of the eye and blend outward to create a smoky effect and a seamless color transition. Add this same shade to the lower lashline with a smudge brush, and pop on a pair of false lashes for that extra oomph.
- Contour your face. For your day look, add a dewy flush to your cheeks with cream blush and a subtle highlight with an illuminator. For your night look, add depth to your features by applying a contour powder just below the cheek bones and along the hairline. Bronzer can look different depending on the lighting, so it’s best to use a powder specifically designed for contouring that’s on the cooler side

Last week we learned what strobing is…now lets learn how to put it into action!
- Prep your skin. Strobing is all about getting the perfect glow, so you’ll need to replenish dull, dry skin with a moisturizer and foundation.
- Use a highlighter shade that best matches your skin tone. To avoid the frosted 90’s look, make sure the highlighter you’re using complements your skin tone for a subtle sheen.
- Only use the highlighter in areas that catch light: on your cheekbones, along your temples, down the bridge of your nose, above and below your brow bone, in the corners of your eyes, front of chin, and above your cupid’s bow. This will enhance your natural features. If you have oily skin, skip areas like your forehead or chin, which could be shiny already.
- After you’ve applied the highlighter, blend it out with your fingers or a brush. Blend to make sure you blend away any harsh edges of highlighter so it fades into the rest of your skin. Skin should appear as if it is glowing from within and products is not just lying on the face.
So, what is strobing exactly? It’s a fun term for highlighting, basically. Instead of intensifying the darker areas of your face as you do with contouring, simply highlight the areas that naturally catch the most light. This gives a dewy, youthful feel to our overall look. Strobing can be achieved by using either powders or creams.
